It seems British supermodel Naomi Campbell, 39, might be better suited to the ring than the runway. Employing computers, cell phones or her bare hands, Campbell has attacked numerous employees, friends, and police officers over issues as trivial as lost denim. Her latest incident in the backseat of a New York City limo brings a long history of allegations and charges to mind:
Victim: Georgina Galanis, secretary
Campbell allegedly assaulted Galanis, beating her over the head with a phone, grappling with her, and threatening to throw her from a moving vehicle.
Victim: Amanda Brack, 20, employee
Brack’s attorney claims that Campbell assaulted his client, physically and verbally, on a number occasions during her brief employment, including an incident in which Campbell hit Brack over the head with a Blackberry device.
Result: Not affirmed, but payoff speculated.
Victim: Yvonee Scio, actress
Campbell became upset with longtime friend Scio after Scio arrived at Campbell’s hotel room in Rome wearing the same dress as Campbell. The two were apparently on their way to a party, but Scio claims the enraged Campbell unleashed a furious verbal and physical assault on her, leaving her bloodied and in the hospital. Scio says Campbell was “like Mike Tyson”, but Campbell rejects Scio’s story of a physical altercation. Scio intended to sue Campbell for lost wages.
Result: There is no indication of this case actually going to court, it may have been settled outside of court.
