FROM ABC NEWS: Allegations that Naomi Campbell was given a “blood diamond” by the dethroned Liberian president Charles Taylor have led to another one of her infamous outbursts of anger.
The allegations have also taken center stage at Taylor’s trial for his “crimes against humanity.”
“I didn’t receive a diamond and I’m not going to speak about that,” Campbell told ABC News before walking out of an interview and punching the camera in a producer’s hand when pressed on the details.
The full footage of the interview may or may not appear this evening on World News with Diane Sawyer and Nightline.
Prosecutors in the Hague for the UN-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone say Campbell has refused their requests to be interviewed about the allegations that they say could help directly link Taylor to the possession of uncut diamonds used to fuel a campaign of terror in Sierra Leone between 1997 and 2001.
