Naomi Campbell is NOT having a happy Friday!
On July 31, Naomi was sentenced to 6 months in jail by an Italian court for scratching a photog’s eye in 2009. Ouch, sounds painful!
According to the victim, he was photographing Campbell with her then boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, when the model struck him in the eye with her purse. While the photographer initially pressed charges, they were withdrawn after a behind the scenes settlement was reached. Unfortunately for the 45-year-old, a judge decided to proceed with the case due to the media attention and public fascination.
The fashionista’s attorney said of the Friday ruling:
“We are appealing the ruling surrounding the 2009 incident. Due to the ongoing legal process, we cannot discuss the matter further at this time.”
Sounds like Naomi’s attorney has a lot of work to do! We’ll keep you updated as the case progresses!
