It almost seemed as if Tatjana Patitz († 56) just a few months before her death again sought the public. After living in seclusion on a farm in the USA for years, she was back in front of the camera for a fashion label in 2022 and was a guest at a charity event in Berlin. In fact, her appearance at 'Tribute to Bambi' on October 5, 2022 was supposed to be the last public gala appearance in Germany before her unexpected death on January 11, 2023 - a much too early death that not only deeply affects the fashion world .

Tatjana Patitz was present in 2022: In addition to a major campaign for the fashion label 'Comma', the model attended the 'Tribute for Bambi' gala on October 5, 2022 in Berlin, alongside her son Jonah, whom the world had hardly seen before . A sight with rarity value!

It was noticeable that the 19-year-old seems to have inherited the fine facial features of his famous mother, and although his mother was already a proud 1.80 meters tall, Jonah towered over her by a few centimetres.

Jonah is Tatjana's only child and was born to her marriage to American entrepreneur Jason Johnson. Tatjana and Jason divorced in 2009: She moved with Jonah to a ranch in Malibu near Los Angeles. Patitz herself described her son as the 'source of my happiness' and had an intimate relationship with him. Above all because of him, she could imagine returning to Germany.

A few weeks after this appearance, the model was still on November 10th on the ARD show 'Who knows something?' with moderator Kai Pflaume (55). The program was recorded on September 8, 2022, as ARD confirmed by telephone when asked by RTL.

It was the first 'Vogue' cover shot by photographer Peter Lindbergh (†), which catapulted Tatjana Patitz into the model Olympus. Along with Naomi Campbell (52), Christy Turlington (54), Linda Evangelista (57) and Cindy Crawford (56), she has since been known as part of the 'Big Five' supermodels of the '90s. But while her colleagues drew attention to themselves with private details, Patitz preferred to enjoy her private life away from the public eye, always keeping quiet about her relationships with Seal, 59, Pierce Brosnan, 69, and Richard Gere, 73 .
