Naomi Campbell was asked about the incident by ABC News, and refused to answer the questions. She finally ended the interviews by saying "Thank you so much, good bye." She couldn't stop herself, however, from seemingly hitting and smashing the camera on her way out.
The story will air tonight on Nightline.
Supermodel Naomi Campbell's lips are sealed about a huge, uncut "blood diamond" that was allegedly given to her by former Liberian President Charles Taylor, the New York Post reports. Campbell received the diamond in 1997 when she was a guest of Nelson Mandela's in South Africa. Mia Farrow recalled:
"Naomi Campbell came down...she said during the night some men had knocked on her door and she, half-asleep, had opened the door and it was representatives of President Charles Taylor and that they had given her a huge diamond. And we were like, 'Oh, my gosh.'"
Prosecutors have accused Taylor of using the blood diamonds to purchase weapons for the Sierra Leone rebels at the time. Approximately 50 victims of the violent events will testify in the Hague, however Campbell refuses and denies ever receiving the diamond.
