She’s bringing in the big guns, and we’re not talking about her arms.
Naomi Campbell is super pissed over an article the Daily Telegraph that claimed she was having an elephant polo match as part of her boyfriend's 50th birthday celebration in India last month.
It turns out the newspaper's report was a giant pile of elephant poop, and now she’s suing them for libel!
Her lawyers said in statement:
"We have issued legal proceedings on behalf of Ms. Campbell against the Telegraph, who were the original publishers of these allegations. We are instructed to pursue this matter until it is satisfactorily resolved. The allegations caused damage to our client, apart from the widespread repetition of the allegations, there were also protests outside the venue, and Indian government departments who wrote to us. However, it seems to me that government authorities and animal welfare groups in India were simply reacting to the untrue claims that had been made. The simple truth is that there was no plan for elephant polo. Ms. Campbell did not cancel it because it was never going to happen in the first place. We have as yet no idea where the false claims originated from, perhaps the Telegraph will let us know in due course."
Maybe next time they’ll think about who they’re messing with before printing false claims about Naomi.
