Former Liberian president Charles Taylor wept in court yesterday as he told of rumours linking him to Supermodel Naomi Campbell. ‘It’s been a terrible blow to my reputation, I can’t sleep, it’s starting to affect my work’ he told a packed courtroom.
During the last twenty years thousands of PAs from the fashion and media world have been beaten with phones or slapped by the model. Untold numbers of hotel staff have simply disappeared, never to work there again, after upsetting the diva. Campbell (40) famously introduced lookalike Tyra Banks after a string of assassination attempts in the mid nineties. She caused a scene recently at Heathrow claiming she had to have her diamond encrusted mobile phone with her for her own protection.
The judge praised Mr Taylor’s bravery at coming forward. ‘He is a humble man who has done much in his homeland for the export and butchery industries’
