It’s about to get very ugly for beautiful Naomi Campbell. The cantankerous catwalker, who insisted under oath last week that she did know who sent her “dirty-looking pebbles” that turned out to be infamous blood diamonds, was aware that alleged war criminal and former Liberian President Charles Taylor was going to send her the gems, according to explosive court testimony expected today from her former agent.
And she later falsely boasted to pals that one was much larger than it actually was, the agent will say. The moody model was forced to the stand at Taylor’s trial at The Hague in the Netherlands last week as prosecutors tried to tie him to the diamonds. The former president allegedly received the uncut, illegally mined gems in exchange for arming murderous Sierra Leone rebels. Campbell denied even talking about diamonds with Taylor at a dinner party 13 year ago — much less knowing that a pouch of “very small, dirty-looking” stones she later received from three mysterious men had been sent by him.
But Carole White — once her loyal, longtime agent — is set to testify that she “heard Mr. Taylor tell Ms. Campbell that he was going to send her diamonds” during the party,” The Times of London said. Campbell has denied it all.
She testified that when she spoke with Taylor that night, “I spoke in general. I was interested in Liberia. I had never heard of it before.” The pouch of diamonds later came with “no explanation, no note,” she said. Receiving such an odd gift from a mysterious fan was not unusual, Campbell insisted, saying, “I get gifts all the time, sometimes in the middle of the night.” The million-dollar model testified only after being threatened with up to seven years in prison for contempt of court if she didn’t. Taylor is charged with crimes against humanity, including funding the rebels, who think nothing of recruiting child soldiers and mutilating civilians.
Naomi best get her isht right…they already threatened her with jail time before, if she keeps this up, they will lock her a$s up over those “dirty looking pebbles.”
