Naomi Campbell is enthralled in yet ANOTHER assault scandal after the model reportedly got in a tussle over a cell phone with a former member of her PR team!
If you're wondering why this sounds familiar, it's because it's eerily similar to four other court rulings against her following attacks on employees… some even with cell phones.
Anywho, in the most recent incident, the 46-year-old supermodel allegedly left a 26-year-old publicist with a bruised face after believing he was tipping off the paparazzi following her foot operation at the end of last year.

Apparently, the alleged victim (who was taken off Naomi's account before the altercation after the company believed he had gotten "too close" to the client) showed up to to the model's NYC hotel just before the holidays while she recovered from surgery.
After the well-known diva suspected the Bell Pottinger employee of letting the paps know her whereabouts, she reportedly tried to snatch his phone away from him as he sent a text.
Whatever did or didn't happen… the recent graduate supposedly acquired a bruised face AND has the pictures to prove it!
However, according to DailyMail, a source close to the model slams the spin doctor's version of events, saying:
"At the time, Naomi had had an operation and was in a wheelchair or on crutches, and the photographers seemed to know where she'd be. She wanted to get the phone off the PR man because he was texting in her presence and she grabbed it. There was no fight as such and she has absolutely no idea how he got a bruised face. He seemed to be a bit of a Walter Mitty character, a fantasist. He was always boasting about his colorful background. He might well have been flirtatious. He started to get addicted to the lifestyle. His head got turned by the bright lights and celebrity and he became a bit delusional. She doesn't recognize his account of events at all. She does regret snatching the mobile phone because she was a bit paranoid about being followed by paparazzi, but she has no idea about him receiving any injuries."
OK, so she did grab his phone… she just isn't sure how he got the bruises. Got it.
Miz Campbell is no longer using Bell Pottinger as her publicists as she has returned to the care of PR pro Alan Edwards.
