Furious Naomi Campbell Assaults ABC Cameraman

Posted on April 22, 2010

Naomi Campbell flipped out during an ABC interview in which she was asked about receiving a gift of a blood diamond from Liberia's dictator Charles Taylor, who has been indicted for multiple crimes. Naomi has refused to cooperate with prosecutors who are frustrated that she won't help them tie the deposed dictator to the human rights abuses connected with the blood diamond trade. In this video clip, Naomi refuses to answer questions on the subject, and keeps her temper. But she finally gets so mad that she leaves the interview and violently knocks the camera out of the camera man's hand. It's at the very end of the clip. He's just lucky she didn't have her cellphone -- her weapon of choice -- on her.

Actress Mia Farrow has alleged that Naomi received a diamond from Taylor, but Campbell denies the allegation. Naomi told ABC News, "I didn't receive a diamond and I'm not going to speak about that." You can find the clip on ABC News.
