Is Naomi Campbell being played by her married, Russian billionaire lover?


These are some shots from Naomi Campbell’s appearance on Elle Russia – this is the February issue, I believe. The styling is pretty simple, nothing too extraordinary, but I guess the point is that Naomi has taken another Russian fashion magazine cover. She is trying to be embraced by Russia, because her lover is Russian, and it doesn’t look like he’s getting a divorce any time soon, so she’s pretty much his “kept woman” in Moscow. In other “how the mighty have fallen” news, Naomi’s still-married fiance Vladimir Doronin got Naomi to star in some cheese-fest commercial for a luxury building:

It must be love — Naomi Campbell stripped down to make a commercial for her billionaire boyfriend’s new luxury building in Moscow. Supermodel Campbell is seen writhing in bed, swimming in a pool, working out in a gym and getting ready for the office and then on a night out in a Russian TV and Internet ad for Vladimir Doronin’s swanky apartment building called “Legend of Tsvetnoy.”

As the cheesy spot with a breathy female voice-over in Russian comes to an end, a pouting Campbell coos melodramatically in English: “I listen to your heart, Moscow. Now you know where I stay.” Campbell has been dating Doronin for three years, and although he isn’t yet divorced from wife Ekaterina, rumors keep swirling the pair will eventually marry.

Wow, Doronin got one of the biggest supermodels in the world to do a commercial appearance for luxury apartments in Moscow. Do you think Naomi even got paid? I don’t even know… this whole situation between Naomi and Vlad grows stranger by the day. Sometimes I think Naomi has resigned herself to the fact that she will be nothing more than Vlad’s mistress. Other days I think that Naomi will stick with this through the bitter end, and that means waiting out his wife. Mostly I just think she’s being played, and that makes me a little bit happy.

    Hope so.

  2. Happymom says:

    She’s not a nice person-so whatever. Why would she even need to marry anyway? Obviously his wife doesn’t care that he’s with her in public all the time and she’s being VERY well kept-so I’m sure the situation is just fine for all parties.

  3. Shay says:

    Naomi Campbell is like an upmarket escort. No, she isn’t officially an escort (she doesn’t work for an escort agency), but she accepts gifts from the highest bidders. I doubt she received the blood diamonds for simply existing. Same with this Russian billionaire.
    She isn’t being played. She doesn’t care for that. But she is smart enough to have all her bills paid for.

  4. Rita says:

    I don’t understand Russian divorce law but I’m pretty sure ol’ Vlad ain’t signing over a half billion for another cow even if the milk is better than N.E.S.T.L.E’S.

  5. SexyBrownGirl says:

    She is getting money from him wtf does she care about his wife? I can bet he pays for her whole lifestyle..I need me a russian billionaire too.

  6. bros says:

    i think all 3 of them know where they stand. the pictures (multiple) of ekaterina and naomi chilling together tells me that they have a civil agreement between the 3 of them. Ekaterina keeps the married title and the financial benefits, stays in london, and spends his money. Vlad gets to bone naomi without having a costly divorce, and Naomi has a semi career that can make her money, but gets the BF tossing cash at her without responsibility of being a wife or a mother and she can continue to party down and wear great clothes and go on vacations on yachts etc. i think everyone is getting what they want. otherwise there would be many more reports of her screaming or fighting with him and throwing things or something because she is a violent bitch, and there are no reports of volatility.

  7. DetRiotgirl says:

    I don’t know why, but that picture of Naomi laughing just sends shivers down my spine. The spirits of a thousand bedraggled set PAs, abused personal assistants and broken blackberries haunt that laugh.

  8. carrie says:

    i guess every one is happy except Naomi wants a baby(because it will be the big trouble)

  9. abc says:

    I feel sorry for her. In other news, she’s beautiful!

  10. Toe says:

    Naomi is sooo beautiful, how old is she now?
    If you could live a millionaire lifestyle being the misstress of a billionaire, would you mind?
    “1 million for 1 night with your wife” What will you do?

  11. Ally says:

    Good grief, these models. How much money do you have to make to finally realize you don’t have to aspire to being a kept woman?

  12. Maud says:

    I’d walk a mile in her shoes….uh, wait, maybe in Ekaterina’s shoes. Vlad is gorgeous, btw.

  13. merry says:

    She’s a bitch, you know, but, my-my, she’s a stunner!

  14. sapphire says:

    @brin-my first thought.

    Meh-seems to be “an arrangement” that takes care of everybody.

  15. samanthalous says:

    Well if he has seen her without her weave, I don’t think he is going anywhere.

  16. Belle Epoch says:

    From what I gather, Russian billionaires are not people you want to mess with. You don’t get to the top of the heap of Russian mobsters by being sweet and understanding.

    These guys have so much money they can order up personal yachts the size of a Carnival Cruise ship – and then never use it. Siphoning off a few million to Naomi is no big deal.

    But how will it end?

  17. me says:

    Please please please, can Celebitchy stop copying printing mistakes made by their sources? Or can someone check it in the first place? The guy’s name is VLADIMIR. Everyone who lives in Europe has encountered this name somewhere, it’s quite regular from Russia to Germany. Even Lenin’s first name was Vladimir (second being Ilic). Putin’s first name is also Vladimir (and second is Vladimirovic). Plus it’s also a name of town in Russia. Google it. There’s no Vladamir, only daft people mispelling Vladimir!

  18. Angel says:

    She’s pure perfection! Vlad is probably very generous. But even without him she has enough money. She’s a SUPERMODEL!

  19. annaloo says:

    How is it that she is so beautiful, yet such a twisted person? Life is not fair.

  20. Crash2GO2 says:

    I think Shay is right. It seems like a hollow existence really. It’s no wonder she throws phones.

  21. Cyui says:

    She’s gorgeous. I haven’t heard of any crazy antics in yrs from her. Anyway Vladimir isn’t gettinbg a divorce. He’s worth a billion. Divorce in Russia is half and half. He probably didn’t have anything when they got married or the pre-nup…gives her a percentage. The percent is too high for Vlad to spare, but there are photos of Vlad Naomi the wife and daughter. Naomi is a multimillionaire too and the guy and his wife have been apart for over a decade. Naomi doesn’t want kids ….so ..basically Naomi ain’t getting played.

  22. guesty says:

    Exactly! How will this torrid little affair end betwixt the bald supermodel & her married russian lovah?

  23. Cyui says:

    Naomi is 40. Now this is 40 & fabulous

  24. Melissa says:

    Am I the only one that doesn’t find her the least bit attractive? I’ve always thought she was kind of ugly – those lips!

  25. RHONYC says:

    she’s a bald, dumba*s jumpoff. what do you expect?

    cindy, christie, stephanie & even melania (was she ever really a model?) have all gotten ‘a ring put on it’ by there respective millionaire/billionaire husbands (as we all know is the birthright of the supermodel, lol).

    meantime, this chicken-head is a mere arm candy/jumpoff/sidepiece. AT 40 YEARS OLD!

    naomi just doesn’t rep for the game, at all. boo. :-(

  26. original kate says:

    you know, naomi is really beautiful and a great model, but she always looks so up her own ass.

  27. Gistine says:

    I hope so. She is one vile bitch.

  28. Raven says:

    Shay said what I was going to say. I’m sure she’s gotten more than enough “gifts” to compensate her for that performance. Besides, who in the West will see it anyway?

  29. Lady D says:

    When I hear her name now I think blood diamonds. She is utterly despicable. Karma cannot come soon enough.

  30. Zelda says:

    I think they are all cool with it. So good for them.

    And I’m SURE she got paid for that ad. Actually, it’s so weird I thought “money laundering”, immediately. Maybe I’ve just been in Moscow too long.

    I find that man super sexy, though.

  31. whateverulike says:

    there is more to a being a woman than having long hair..please the bitch has a pussy. i’m so tired of these bitches coming on here talking bout some damn hair, i know alot of people with long hair and they are ugly as hell,and someone mentioned her lips were ugly please who wants to look like a damn puppet naomi has a well porprotioned face get over cause your pale & probably boring as hell.another ball-headed bitch that men loved GRACE JONES!! she was bald-headed with big lips too get over your self they are absolutely stunning and your just drab like London’s weather get some sun in your life!!!

  32. happygirl says:

    @ brin – me, too, girl!!

    @ Rita’s “N.E.S.T.L.E’S” & @ Crash2GO2′s “It’s no wonder she throws phones!” ROLFMAO!!!

    I really have to thank you all for making my week so much better! ;)

    Edit – @LadyD: ITA!

  33. Aurelia says:

    People probably don’t know Naomis mother Valerie was a “dancer/escort” back in the day when she “abandoned and gave naomi ooohh arrhh abandonment issues and an excuse to be a voilent bitch” I digress, Val took contracts in Italy to dance/whore in clubs and left naomi with family in South London. The reason Naomi isn’t in touch with her bio father is because Val probably doesn’t know which john he was. Oh dear I’m going to burn in hell for being so mean!

  34. abc says:

    I’m kinda surprised by all the hate regarding her hair – MANY actresses/models have big fat weaves. It’s not that uncommon…and as someone else above said, if long hair is all a woman has to offer, well – that’s lame.

  35. Jayna says:

    She’s a vicious bitch, but she is absolutely stunning, especially when you think of her age. She’s ageless.

  36. Mouse says:

    In that first pic, she looks like the zombie woman from the first episode of The Walking Dead.

  37. Megan says:

    What a boring photo shoot!

  38. nicole says:

    well melanie fiona canadian singer likes like the wicked witch from the wizard of oz but it doesn,t bother csi miami actor adam rodriquezone bit.

  39. YAY says:

    @whateverulike beauty is subjective – geeze.

  40. Lila says:

    Like she cares. She’s been engaged a billion times already and never marries these dudes. I don’t believe for one second that’s what she’s been looking for.

  41. jr says:

    I love you Naomi…hope he doesn’t hurt you.

  42. Louise says:

    Personally I don’t think Naomi cares if he divorces. She doesn’t strike me as desperate for marriage. She cares about the lifestyle and maybe the man. Also is she a mistress considered the boyfriend was seperated before they even started dating.

  43. kelly says:

    Can you play a player? Yes- again, with vanity. This hoebag is as vain and entitled as they come and would probably believe anything you told her as long as you played to that crucial weakness. I hope she gets sucked up and dumped on her arse, the mean bitch.

  44. RHONYC says:

    @ Aurelia:

    *covering my mouth in shock…for real* :-o


    that was vicious even by MY standards. :lol:

    i never even heard that b4…oh, well hoe-in is as hoe-in does!

    good weekend folks! :-)

  45. Ruffian9 says:

    “Mostly I just think she’s being played…”

    God I hope so. She’s a nasty human being.

  46. Kim says:

    Shes being played but she knows this, doesnt care and is playing him right back. How much in jewels, cars, clothes, trips etc has she recd from him – millions! Shes a “paid” escort. She has been paid to date many wealthy men.

  47. nnn says:

    She is just the mistress of a billionaire and will keep on wasting her youth with him, until he jump to another younger one and she realised all those years wasted.

  48. Seer says:

    I get the impression he’s using her and she doesn’t know it. She doesn’t care if she screws his wife over, but it looks like she’s the one getting screwed in this tangled trio.

  49. LuckyLilGem says:

    It just goes to show that even one of the most beautiful (physically) women in the world, has insecurities. You’re telling me she couldn’t land a single billionaire? Salma Hayek did!

  50. Richi says:

    She looks as if she is in her late 20ies!! no doubt she is beautiful but sadly just skin deep!!!

  51. WTF? says:

    Naomi is fabulous and I love her! I think it’s one thing to be married and sneaking around cheating on your wife, it’s something completely different when you obviously have an open relationship (there are tons of photos with all of them on vacation together). These are all consenting adults, what’s the problem?

  52. Lila says:

    She is incredible. All that Marlboro smoke hasn’t put a dent in her looks. She looks amazing for fortysomething.

  53. crtb says:

    I think she is very beautiful but just how long will her beauty last and when will he trade her in for a younger woman? Is she investing or saving any of her money? Because there will be a time when she wont be able to work as a model any longer. If I were her, I’d get pregnant to guarantee the money coming in for the next 21 years.

  54. truly_enchanting says:

    She is being played. He is a Russian Business man, I wouldn’t be surprise if she REALLY doesn’t know he REALLY does. You don’t get that rich without making a few people disappear and having good connections in Russia.

    There’s a Russian saying “There’s no such thing as mafia in Russia, just good business man

    And if this man really loved her, he wouldn’t have been cheating on his wife, he would have divorce her a long time ago. Since he has no plans on divorcing his wife, that just tells her how he views Nomai. She’s just a hole to put his dick in. She’s a house bunny. His trophy. IF these two get married, he is going to cheat on her too. This man doesn’t respect her. Yes, he’ll buy her things, say sweet-nothings to her and she will eat them up.

    Doesn’t matter how beautiful you are, that doesn’t stop a man from cheating on you. and I wouldn’t be surprise if he got other lovers on the side. I would never get involved with a married man or a Russian Business man. You can never trust the words of married man or a Russian Business man.

    The Russian people don’t give a damn about her, she will never been seen as a Russian she doesn’t understand the Russian world.

  55. Lovee says:

    Sounds like a lot of unhappy,jealous, trash on this thread. Why aren’t the miserable people talking about him? Who cares. losers!
