Naomi Campbell - Pics and Vids

Updated on May 14, 2013

Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell (born May 22, 1970) is an iconic British supermodel, actress, singer and author and has developed a reputation for temper tantrums, sometimes leading to alleged physical violence.

A graduate of the Italia Conti Academy stage school, Naomi Campbell's first appearance to a wider public was in February 1978 when she was cast as a pupil to appear in a music video with Bob Marley for his song Is This Love?. In 1982, she appeared in another music video, this time as a tap dancer for Culture Club's "I'll Tumble 4 Ya".

On graduating from Italia Conti, her looks ("My features are completely ethnic", she said in the September 2003 issue of Essence magazine. "And I'm proud of them.") led her to become a fulltime model, creating a high-profile career and creating two spin-off companies, NC Connect and a self-named line of perfumes.

Her charity work mainly focuses on the children and people of Africa, including working with Nelson Mandela, since 1997. In 2005, she helped to create and participate in 'Fashion Relief' for Hurricane Katrina victims, raising over a million dollars.

Troubles with the law

Naomi has been accused and arrested because of committing acts of physical violence and verbal abuse against some of her employees and associates. Documented accusations include:

In 2000, she pleaded guilty in a Toronto court to a 1998 assault on Georgina Galanis, her then assistant; Campbell had assaulted Galanis with a telephone in a hotel room and threatened to throw her out of a moving car. Under an agreement with the prosecution her record was cleared in exchange for her expressing remorse; Campbell also paid Galanis an undisclosed amount of money and agreed to attend anger management lessons.

March 2005, the model was said to have slapped assistant Amanda Brack and beaten her around the head with a BlackBerry hand-held personal organiser. The star's spokesman Rob Shuter denied the incident ever took place. In July 2006, Brack began legal proceedings against Campbell, claiming the supermodel abused her verbally and physically on three continents. Brack accused Campbell of assault, battery, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress in incidents that started a month after she began working for her in February 2005

Italian actress Yvonne Scio has claimed the model left her "covered in blood" after a spat at a Rome hotel. Yvonne claimed: "She punched me in the face. She was like Mike Tyson." Interestingly enough, Campbell once dated Mike Tyson.

On 30 March, 2006 in New York City, Campbell was arrested for allegedly assaulting her housekeeper with a jewel-encrusted mobile phone, resulting in a bloody head that required several stitches. She was charged with second degree assault, a felony that carries a minimum sentence of one year and a maximum of seven years in prison.

On 28 September, 2006, she did not attend a required court appearance in New York City, and the judge ruled that he would order her arrest if she failed to turn up on court the following week, on charges of a second degree assault on her housekeeper, and could be jailed for up to seven years if convicted.

On 25 October, 2006, she was arrested in London on suspicion of assault. She has been released on police bail.

On 14 November, 2006, another former Campbell housekeeper, Gaby Gibson, began a new court case against the supermodel seeking unspecified damages, and accused her ex-employer of being a "violent super-bigot..

On 15 November 2006, Campbell appeared in criminal court in New York City regarding her March 2006 assault charges. Her defence lawyer and the prosecutor told the judge that they were "still in the process of working out a possible" plea deal in the case.

On 16 January 2007, Campbell pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless assault against Ana Scolavino. She was sentenced to five days community service and ordered to attend an anger management course. In addition, she was ordered to pay medical bills of $363 (£185) to Mrs Scolavino who needed four stitches after the incident.

The Boston-based law firm Sullivan & Worcester, which had assigned a top litigator to defend Campbell throughout her many escapades, severed their relationship with Campbell in 2006.

Feuds

Campbell is purported to have had feuds with several celebrities, the most publicised of which is with fellow model Tyra Banks. The two finally made up in 2005 on an episode of Banks' syndicated talk show The Tyra Banks Show. At the end of the 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Banks and other models left the runway, and Banks explained her emotions of the event being her last runway show as a fashion model; and as she was talking Campbell came to hug Banks and kiss her on the cheek.

Campbell also had a rift with former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, who publicly branded the model as a "massive cow" and a "bitch" in 2000. They have since been photographed holding hands at a fashion show so a detente appears to have taken place.

      Naomi, I love your passion and your pivotal role played in making sure that some countries are on the right path in charity development.

      frankly, I have problem with how you dress, these dressings have the proclavity to undermine womenhood. I hate your way of dressing.

      Thanks!
