CARA DELEVINGNE’S friends and family fear they need to stage an urgent intervention after witnessing her recent wild behaviour.
Our shocking pictures capture her twirling wildly while wearing no shoes, with bedraggled hair and bruises on her arms.
Her T-shirt displayed an image of Britney Spears — who famously had a breakdown in 2007 when the pressures of fame became too much to bear.
Cara’s concerning behaviour on Monday came just days after she was spotted looking washed out and smoking a pipe in her car.
A close friend told The Sun: “We are all incredibly concerned.
“The situation has been building for a few weeks now, and Cara’s family is involved.
“There is talk of staging some kind of intervention and making sure Cara gets the help she may well need.
“She has been burning the candle at both ends of late, and it’s clearly taking its toll.”

A self-styled “rebel” who likes to push back boundaries, Cara has confessed to getting drawn into drug taking in the past and has previously struggled to cope with the pressures of the fashion world.
She was spotted at Glastonbury over the summer and the bohemian Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert last week, where friends reported that she barely stopped to eat.
And when she wasn’t partying in a field, Cara was at a string of glamorous events.
In May alone her itinerary included the Cannes Film Festival, her model pal Adwoa Aboah’s acid house-themed 30th birthday party, an afterparty for American TV comedy show Saturday Night Live and a charity bash in London.
At the Billboard Music Awards and the Met Gala that same month, onlookers noted her oddball interactions with Megan Thee Stallone, which included trying to kiss the American rapper and interrupting her interviews.
There were also worrying signs of anxiety during two interviews in the States in July.
She appeared agitated on The Tonight Show, scratching her hands and trembling while performing a card trick for host Jimmy Fallon.
And on Live With Kelly And Ryan, viewers noticed Cara was constantly rubbing her hands together.
She has been previously diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which could explain her behaviour — but there is a pattern that cannot be easily dismissed.
Last November Cara fell off stage at a Halloween party — and last week she was spotted smoking heavily on a pipe while sitting in her car alone in LA.
She was also seen dropping an unknown liquid from a pipette into her mouth and apparently “zoning out”.
Cara’s family know only too well how vital professional support can be.
Her mum Pandora, 63, became addicted to heroin at the age of just 20. Pandora’s father Sir Jocelyn Stevens, the late chairman of the charity English Heritage, sent her to a clinic in Switzerland following an overdose.
Cara’s close friends said: “The consensus is that she needs a few weeks of total rest — no booze, no partying and, crucially, some healthy, hot meals inside her. Cara’s an incredibly bright, switched-on girl — but even she needs a guiding hand sometimes. There has been some talk of getting her into a retreat of some kind for a detox and some R&R.”
In 2013 she dropped some white powder outside her home in London — and images emerged of her smoking a suspicious looking roll-up during her public school days.
Cara has admitted to dabbling with droghe at the start of her catwalk career, but insisted that she did not get hooked as she was “working like mad.”
Yet she admits that being part of the fashion world from the tender age of ten was damaging to her mental health.
Lei disse: “I realised modelling wasn’t good for me physically or emotionally.”
Her mum admitted to being too ill at times to care for her daughters — and at the age of 15, Cara had a breakdown.
Lei disse: “I tried to smash my head into a tree to knock myself out.”
Cara felt suicidal and needed medication in order to deal with her bouts of depression, which have returned over the years.
Nearly a decade ago, she slowed down her modelling work and gradually reinvented herself as a successful actress.
She was supervillain the Enchantress in 2016 blockbuster Suicide Squad and was recently in the second series of Disney Plus comedy drama hit Only Murders In The Building, alongside US comedy legend Steve Martin and pop singer Selena Gomez.
Having earned £100million during her career, she can afford to take a break if needs be.
There is also no doubt that if Cara is in any kind of trouble, she has plenty of devoted friends and relatives to call on.
Cara has said: “I saw my sisters as the epitome of the woman I wanted to be.
“My father taught me how to be ambitious, never to give up and to love without condition.

“My mother taught me that to pick yourself up when you are down is the most important part of falling.”
Proprio adesso, that sounds like the advice she most needs to hear.
PARTY GIRL WHO LONGS FOR A BABY
THERE are signs that Cara is torn between partying into the early hours and settling down.
In a bizarre interview in February, she said she was buying baby clothes in the hope of “manifesting” a child.
Il modello, who has dated men and women, hasn’t been in a long-term relationship since splitting from Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson two years ago.
Her previous partners are rumoured to include singers St Vincent and Jake Bugg, and actress Michelle Rodriguez.
On Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop podcast last year, the self-described pansexual said that being “ashamed” of her sexuality had led to “massive depression and suicidal moments”.
