Naomi Campbell and her agent have released a statement after Mia Farrow and former agent Carole White gave testimonies at the war crimes trial of Charles Taylor that contradicted what the supermodel told the court last week.
In her statement Campbell said:
I've no motive here. Nothing to gain. I am a black woman who has and will always support good causes especially relating to Africa. I've never taken any of the jobs offered to me, over my 25 years as a model, from companies that were for apartheid in South Africa.
Her agent at The Outside Organisation also commented on Naomi telling the court it was "inconvenient" for her to be there, saying:
"Campbell accepts the use of the word 'inconvenient' was a poor choice of word but it was made off the cuff and was taken massively out of context. It was in relation to a nonsensical question as to whether or not she was nervous appearing in court!
Campbell had explained that she had fears for her family having read about Taylor's alleged crimes on the internet, hence her initial reticence in appearing. Regardless of people's recollections it's indisputable and has been confirmed by all witnesses concerned that Naomi handed over the diamonds at the first possible opportunity for the benefit of a South African children's charity."
And there you have it.
Do U think Naomi lied under oath???
