Naomi Campbell Addresses Idris Elba Dating Rumor
After chatter sprung up that Naomi Campbell was smashing newly single Idris Elba, the supermodel took time out of her promo tour to shoot down the rumor once and for all:
“I don’t know why [people thought we were dating]. Because I’ve known Idris for like for 10 to 15 years, 15 years. And when he takes a picture of me on my fashion events for my charity, no problem there. All of a sudden, bing-bam-boom, we’re a couple. It’s craziness. I mean we are very good friends. And I’m so happy for all the success he’s having because he’s bloody brilliant. He deserves it.”
Also, unlike former SI cover girl Cheryl Tiegs, Naomi Campbell says Ashley Graham’s health is not only none of her business, but something she couldn’t possibly know a thing about by just looking at her:
“I would never make a comment like that. I think it’s way too personal. I don’t know what Ashley eats and that’s not necessarily because you’re bigger than me, you’re eating tons of food. I’ve got tons of friends who are bigger. It could be a hormone problem.”
But on top of all that, there’s no need to speculate on her health, because it’s not as if Ashley is exactly an elephant:
“I don’t think Ashley’s big like that. She’s not a beast. I think sometimes our bones are bigger and we’re just built that way. That doesn’t mean we’re fat. I wouldn’t comment on someone’s size. I just think it’s wrong. I think she’s a beautiful woman, regardless what color or creed. She should be able to model.”
Do you agree with Naomi??
