Naomi Campbell was charged with assault for hitting her housekeeper in the head with a Swarovski crystal-encrusted Blackberry after accusing her of stealing clothes when she couldn’t find a pair of jeans she wanted to wear on “Oprah.”
Ever the diva, Campbell hid the handcuffs under a white fur poncho. Sources said she also asked to ride in her own car to the police stationhouse and then paused as her minions begged cops to let them fix her bangs before she was escorted outside. The requests were denied.
“[She] told her people to lie, to say the maid tripped and hit her head,” a police source said. “Her staff is afraid of her – afraid she’ll go off on them and they’ll lose her paycheck.”
Naomi was released on bail and in a statement released late last night denied the housekeeper’s claims as completely untrue.
“She is sadly mistaken if she thinks she can extract money from me by concocting lies by recycling old stories. I have asked my lawyer to look into filing both theft and extortion charges against her.”
It’s hard to believe Naomi Campbell’s side of the story when she already has a reputation for head-butting and face-slapping the help. The maid should be thankful all she got was a phone to the head, as opposed to Naomi punching through her stomach and eating her heart. Which is actually what I do. How else are they supposed to learn?
