Mia Farrow Calls Naomi Campbell A Liar In Blood Diamond Trial

Aug 9, 2010 10:07 AM

Mia Farrow says Naomi Campbell lied about accepting blood diamonds from warlord Charles Taylor.

Campbell testified that she received several small "dirty-looking stones" from two men at a September 1997 dinner that was hosted by South Africa's former leader, Nelson Mandela. Naomi said she didn't know if the men who gave her the gift were connected to the former Liberian ruler, who is currently on trial for war crimes.

Mia Farrow, who was also at the dinner, said in testimony today, “Naomi Campbell entered the room where my children and I were already eating breakfast. As I recall it she was quite excited and said, in effect, 'oh my god, in the middle of night I was awakened by knocking at the door. It was men sent by Charles Taylor and he sent me', as I recall, 'a huge diamond.”

She added, “Her demeanour seemed excited. She seemed excited, happy.” And even Farrow's children agree with their mother. “I also discussed it with my children, who remember exactly the same thing,” she said. “It was an unforgettable moment. I remember when she came in on the breakfast and said she received a diamond from Charles Taylor.”

This of course disputes testimony by Campbell who claims she was given three small "dirty stones" as opposed to a giant diamond.

“I did not see the diamonds. I can only tell you what Naomi Campbell said. That’s what I recall to the best of my abilities,” Mia said.

Both Naomi and Mia testified during the indictment in The Hague.

Naomi Campbell Says She Was Given "Dirty-Looking Stones" While Testifying In Blood Diamond Trial

Aug 5, 2010 08:45 AM

Naomi Campbell appeared in a Netherlands courtroom to testify in the case of Charles Taylor, a ex-Liberian ruler who is charged with eleven counts of war crimes ... including giving a gift of blood diamonds to the supermodel.

The alleged gift was given at a September 1997 dinner that was hosted by South Africa's former leader, Nelson Mandela. Campbell says she recalls being given a pouch with "dirty-looking stones."

Prosecutors claim that this is proof that Taylor had been illegally selling diamonds to pay for a civil war in nearby Sierra Leone from 1992 to 2002. In addition to Campbell being a guest, Mia Farrow and Quincy Jones were also at this 1997 dinner party.

As to why Campbell was given these stones in the first place is still being investigated. Charles Taylor is also accused of sexual enslavement, murder, rape and recruiting child soldiers.

Naomi Campbell's Wig Is All Wet

Jul 5, 2010 01:20 PM


There are several girls I know who refuse to get their hair wet at the beach -- but Naomi Campbell is not one of them!

That's probably because she has no hair. The supermodel wore a wig in St. Tropez (and everywhere, really) while on vacay with her billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin.

Perhaps Naomi didn't need anger management classes after all. Maybe all her bizarre behavior was just a result of that wig being on too tight!

Naomi Campbell's Driver Apologizes, Says The Alleged Attack Was "Blown Out Of Proportion"

Mar 5, 2010 01:23 PM

campbelldriversorry.jpg After 27-year-old chauffeur Miodrag Mejdina threatened to sue supermodel Naomi Campbell for allegedly assaulting him in a car in NYC the other day, he has taken back his accusations and issued an apology.

Mejdina said he "got angry and overreacted" and regretted reporting the incident to NYPD, adding, "This whole thing has been blown out of proportion and I apologize to Ms. Campbell for causing that to happen."

Campbell released the following statement regarding the matter:

    "I was accused of unacceptable behavior towards a driver in New York. I have worked very hard on correcting my previous wrongdoings and I will not be held hostage to my past. I try to treat everyone with respect and I am pleased the driver has apologized. I would like to put the last few days behind me and move on."

Hmm, given her history of adult temper tantrums, do you buy this?

Police Hunting For Naomi Campbell After Alleged Assault On Limo Driver

Mar 2, 2010 02:58 PM

naomiagain2010.jpg Naomi Campbell must really enjoy prancing around in couture clothes when she fulfills her court mandated community service, because she's got yet another potential assault charge looming on the horizon!

Police are currently on the hunt for Naomi after she allegedly assaulted her limo driver in Midtown Manhattan shortly after 3pm this afternoon. According to the Post, the supermodel "slapped and slugged" her 27-year-old driver and then ran from the black Cadillac Escalade at East 58th Street and Second Ave.

The driver reported the incident to NYPD, who are still looking for the moody beauty. This isn't Naomi's first scrape with the law - in 2007 she pleaded guilty to throwing a cell phone at her maid, and in 2008, she pleaded guilty to assault for getting violent with two police officers at London's Heathrow Airport.

Maybe it's time for Naomi to spend some time in the slammer?
