A father who could not accept the fact that his beloved daughter had turned into a nude model for Playboy Magazine, committed suicide instead of living with the shame.

Loredana Chivu, a Romanian model, took the bold step to strip off for that country's edition of the magazine and when her father found out, he hit rock bottom and shunned her.

He would not talk to her and distanced himself from her because she had brought the family name into disrepute.

Chivu who claimed she always had a close relationship with her father before her nude venture, tried everything she could to reconcile with him but he would have none of it.

The curvaceous blonde model was shocked when she went home  to try and mend fences with him after deciding that the dispute had gone on long enough, but was horrified to find he had killed himself.

The shocked model told Mirror UK:

"When he found out what I had done, he cut himself off from the world and tried to isolate me as well from the rest of the family. He stopped speaking to me, he was pretty upset.

I thought he would get over it and I never expected he would do something like kill himself.

I found him hanging from a beam in the attic. I never recovered from the shock of finding him.

We had always been close and talked every day and suddenly that stopped after the photographs.

Even after all this time, I find it hard to come up with words to talk about it, it is still too painful. I would not wish this on anyone.

One of the worst things is not knowing he didn't seem to have any pressing problems at the time apart from our argument and I never would have thought he was a weak man who would take his own life."
