Naomi Campbell's former agent insists on beating a dead horse by talking about the blood diamonds she received.
In a new interview with the Daily Mail, Carole White went over what "really" happened.
She says of those now infamous dirty-looking stones:
"Naomi knew it was illegal to take diamonds that might have been used to fund atrocities. Why she denied what really happened I don’t know. I suppose, having denied it, she couldn’t retract. I thought, and Naomi agreed, 'Let’s just give them to charity', which she did [the model handed the stones over to a representative from one of Mandela’s charities]. We never knew what ultimately happened to the stones, but we both felt something good had come out of it. We had talked openly about what had happened, then thought nothing more of it."
And that's not all!
Carole goes on to say that the industry changed Naomi. White explains:
"The industry and the lifestyle changed her. At 16 she was mixing with actors, make-up artists, hairdressers, and they were all older than she was. In those days, it was always Concorde, you know? She became used to a luxury lifestyle, and once you’re used to that you don’t want to go back to economy. So money becomes important and your gauge of what’s valuable is different, because you’re staying in suites, you are meeting presidents such as Mandela and Clinton, tycoons such as Philip Green, and so everything is not normal."
The odd thing in all of this, Carole still loves her former client even though they don't speak to each other.
Hmm, that's why you're taking her to court, right???
