LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Naomi Campbell’s temper is making headlines yet again.
The supermodel, who famously was sentenced to 200 hours of community service in 2008 after pleading guilty to assaulting to two police officers on a flight from Heathrow, and previously faced second-degree assault charges for allegedly hitting an employee with a cell phone, stormed off during an interview with ABC News after they asked her about reports she received a blood diamond as a gift from former Liberian president Charles Taylor.
“I didn’t receive a diamond and I’m not going to speak about that,” Naomi said when she was asked by ABC News about the report.
In the clip, which you can see HERE, Naomi thanks the reporter and leaves after the ABC journalist continues their line of questioning about rumors that the supermodel once told Mia Farrow she received a diamond from the former warlord.
“We’ve been told that you didn’t help the prosecution in this very important case,” the reporter said, referring to reports that her testimony could help link Taylor to the blood diamond trade, before Naomi stood up and stormed out.
However, the supermodel went one step further.
In the clip, she appears to swat at the camera knocking the recording equipment over.
Ahhh, a tigress never changes its stripes.
