Naomi Campbell is finally speaking out about testifying at Charles Taylor's war crimes trial last month.
The supermodel, who's still pissed about being subpoenaed, thinks the only reason prosecutors wanted her their was to get the case some publicity.
She told Sky News:
What you need to understand - I wasn't on trial - I was forced through a subpoena to testify. Nothing to do with me. This trial has been going on for how many years? No one cared to write about it. You bring Naomi Campbell to the stand, the whole world knows. So as far as I was concerned I was used as a scapegoat.
Naomi said she doesn't condone what the former Liberian president did, but added:
"I do not see why I have to sit here and hear around everywhere I go in the world that this was like my trial. I was a witness. I told and remembered what I could to my ability and it was 13 years ago."
Oh cry us a river.
If she just agreed to go in the first place without being summoned, it probably wouldn't have been that big of deal.
