After the peak of her fame, Karen had some personal issues that received a lot of publicity.



Mulder appeared on a French interview show but made such bizarre allegations about being raped by practically everyone she had ever known, including her own father, that the show never aired. Nobody really knew what to make of it.

Many people found the claims to be, how shall we put this, more suited to a private environment than a public forum. However, Karen continued making the allegations. Obviously, this was a very sensitive situation which had to be addressed by someone close to Karen.

Karen's sister Saskia acted. Saskia had Karen Mulder committed for five months to work out her issues. However, that did not help. Karen later tried to commit suicide. She survived, but obviously, it was a cry for help.

Since then, Karen has resumed her career, but it is unclear if she is completely better.

Karen has not made the news for similar incidents, so perhaps her treatment worked.

In any event, Karen has had a spectacular career and will always be remembered as one of Victoria's Secret's top models.
