Naomi Campbell actively trying to destroy ‘love rival’ Luo Zilin’s modeling career

As we discussed earlier this week, Naomi Campbell IS NOT PLAYING. Naomi and her married boyfriend of five years, Vladimir Doronin, broke up several months ago. The tabloids claimed that this breakup was more serious than any of the other breakups, and that Naomi wouldn’t mind getting back together. But Vlad has been enjoying his newly single status, and he’s been out and about in all of the big party cities, always with a different model on his arm. And then over the weekend, photographers got pics of Vlad cavorting with a model on his yacht. The model was Luo Zilin, and she had been a contestant on The Face. Naomi had mentored her, promoted her. Well, as soon as Naomi saw the photos, it was GAME ON. Naomi isn’t playing. Naomi will take a bitch down and that bitch will never be able to strut down a catwalk again. So, Naomi already got Luo fired from her modeling agency in NYC. So what’s next?

Naomi Campbell is still fuming months after her breakup with Russian mogul boyfriend Vladimir Doronin — and she’s now apparently trying to get his new girlfriend, Luo Zilin, fired by her Chinese modeling agent.

Luo — who as an aspiring model was mentored by Campbell on her reality show “The Face” and was even on “Team Naomi” — was seen frolicking on Vlad’s yacht and canoodling at his villa in Ibiza, and was promptly fired by her management firm in Europe for alleged “unprofessional conduct” and an “unacceptable work ethic.”

Now a source tells us, “Naomi has been calling colleagues in the industry to try and stop Luo’s career. She is trying to take this woman out for no reason other than dating her ex-boyfriend. Luo was fired by her management firm, and her Chinese agent has been asked to drop her. Naomi is trying to wreck her career. She has a lot of power in the modeling world,” our source said.

Page Six exclusively revealed Naomi, 42, and Vlad, 50, broke up earlier this year. We hear they split in January and finalized the break in March.

The source explained, “They broke up because there were too many ups and downs, and you can only deal with that for so long. Vlad wishes Naomi well. He just wants to move on with his life, but she won’t let him.”

The source said Vlad was surprised to see paparazzi shots of himself with Luo at his secluded villa in Ibiza, adding, “Only a few people know the location of that villa. It’s hard to find, and he suspects she told the paparazzi.”

But a source close to the British beauty, whose career is back on top thanks to the success of “The Face” in the US, said, “She is totally focused on ‘The Face.’ She’s in London working around the clock on the British version of the show. This isn’t easy for Naomi. This relationship seems almost designed to hurt her. She is trying hard to keep a brave face and not to think about it.

“Naomi isn’t trying to destroy Luo’s career, Luo’s agents wanted to get rid of her,” the source continued. “And there’s no way Naomi would have known they were in Ibiza.”

[From Page Six]

What do you believe? Do you believe that a violent megalomaniac super-diva informed the paparazzi as to the whereabouts of Vlad’s Ibiza home? Do you believe that Naomi is trying to keep tabs on Vladimir via the press? Do you believe that Naomi is trying to destroy the career and life of a woman she perceives as a “love rival”? Yes to all of that. And probably a lot more. I really hope Naomi doesn’t know where Luo lives, because Luo is going to come home to some dead animals at her front door. And probably more.

    Naomi is an idiot.

      Luo is an idiot.

      • Johnny badboy tapia says:

        I agree!! U don’t start a new job and then sleep with ur bosses ex!!! No matter what profession

      • Shannon1972 says:

        Naomi is a legend in the fashion and modeling world. This girl tanked her own career, and for what? What could she possibly have been thinking? It’s like she’s never heard of Naomi before.
        It was ridiculously stupid…I cant even summon any sympathy for her. Never bite the hand that feeds you.

      • the real mccoy says:

        @johnny badboy tapia, Well Said!

      • Official Bitch says:

        Agreed Luo is an IDIOT.
        This chick is letting a CHANEL bag and a ride on a yacht burn industry bridges???
        Dumb girl…he ain’t buying you an island. He’s already playing with other women in Miami.

      • dena says:

        I know this sounds naïve but I don’t even think Naomi is directly behind this. She is too known, too respected and too well liked in the industry to be directly behind this one. I think someone else (who likes Naomi) did this and is essentially saying, “Little girl . . the game is not played like that.”

    • LizEJ says:

      Yes… What Luo is doing isn’t cool but it’s not like she broke up their relationship. Naomi just comes off as jealous and vindictive. She can surely find herself another billionaire.

      • Shannon1972 says:

        All true, but it’s not like there aren’t plenty of wealthy men Liu could have chosen. She deliberately slapped the face of the woman who championed her, and could have made her famous. Naomi is a nut case, no doubt. But what Liu did was extremely stupid.

      • Londongal says:

        SO agree. I think Naomi is a walking nightmare but that doesn’t change the fact that sleeping with the ex of someone who has supported and championed your career and is powerful within your industry is utterly idiotic. I can’t believe for one moment that he’s the love of her life and she must have him or no-one else? Because that’s the only sensible(ish) reason for what is basically career suicide.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Especially since they came off as being very friendly, not quite friends, but Naomi probably would’ve mentored her throughout her career and would’ve pulled a few strings to get her jobs. Just from watching a few clips of The Face, Luo was the best model out of all the contestants, and you could see that Naomi was soooo proud of her. It’s a slap to the face.

        Especially since one of the last things Luo put on twitter was to wish Naomi a happy birthday…she hasn’t tweeted anything since before June. I’d want to stay on Naomi’s good side, especially when she defended her to Coco Rocha. Coco said that Luo lied about something and Naomi was all “No,no, check your facts girl. Check your lipstick before you come to me”.

      • Me Three says:

        I have to say I find this whole thread a little sad. Both Naomi and Luo are basically being paid to sleep with this guy. Seems to be the side job with most models. They walk the fashion shows instead of the streets but frankly, even a model with Naomi’s resume, seems to augment her banking account by providing services to rich men.

        And on this line at least, you all are suggesting she should just go find herself another billionaire. I guess i find the whole thing sad. The fact that these women will sleep with and put up with anything as long as the guy is rich and famous makes me wonder about women in general.

      • nikko says:

        Naomi didn’t get involved with the other model he was with last week, last month, whatever. So this one is more personal. It’s like a friend you know dating your ex-longtime boyfriend/fiance. You wouldn’t be happy about it. I don’t think Naomi told the paps where he lives. It looks to me that he/they wanted the paps there to take the photos. They look so poised.

      • Emily C. says:

        It’s like a friend you know dating your ex-longtime boyfriend/fiance. You wouldn’t be happy about it.

        Depends. If one of my exes had gotten involved with my friend (now ex-friend) who cheated constantly on every single guy she dated, sleeping with any available guy, I wouldn’t be happy about it, because I’d wonder where he left his brain. But other than that… I’d be fine with it. Actually, I once undertook a long campaign to get one of my exes to date one of my friends because they’d be perfect for each other. It didn’t work and I’m still sad about that.

      • bluhare says:

        One thing that everyone seems to be forgetting. Naomi was only mentoring this woman for a reality show on TV. Not friends or mentors in real life.

        Do I think this woman’s nuts for getting in Naomi Campbell’s business? Yeah, I do. But I don’t think Naomi Campbell would mentor anyone who’s younger and arguably prettier than she is. In the modelling world Naomi’s close to being done. And this is a Russian oligarch we’re talking about here. He’s got game, people. Naomi’s already been “mugged” once.

      • Mocha23 says:

        Luo is dumb and can’t make good decisions. Just because you can do something does’nt mean you should. I don’t give a damn if its Naomi Campbell or Clara the maid. You don’t mix business with pleasure she should NOT have done it. This article is implying that everyone should hate Naomi but this right here is some underhanded bullsh*t that’s hard to justify.

    • Meaghan says:

      Naomi isn’t an idiot. She is the QUEEN B*TCH, she has NO shame at all in her b*tchiness and I love it so much. Nobody messes with her.

    • karen says:

      Luo should sue! Sue her agent. Sue Naomi for defamation of character.

      This crap has been going on for decades. And not just in the modeling industry.

      SUE THEM ALL!!!

      • jaye says:

        On what grounds should Luo sue? Naomi hasn’t trashed her publicly, and unless she has proof that Naomi is the reason her management dropped her she doesn’t have a legal leg to stand on.

    • Tia says:

      Luo is a bigger idiot. No name model, shouldnt shit were she eats. Not very smart.

    • FLORC says:

      This woman terrifies me. I would never want to know her as it seems she can flip the switch to crazy before you realise you should be running as fast as you can.

      Luo shouldn’t be shocked since Naomi is notoriously competitive and jealous. Naomi was the hand that fed Luo…

      • A says:

        Look, Luo is 25 and until The Face, I had never even heard of her. Again, she is 25 her career is over with or without Naomi’s “help”. Plus she looks older than Naomi!
        I just don’t see her having a modeling career.

    • Gigi says:

      Why is Naomi an idiot? It’s her ex, maybe she still loves him, maybe she wants to get back with him

      And this bilionaire isn’t the only man on earth, Luo could have found some other man besides her mentors ex

      Luo is an IDIOT! TEAM NAOMI all the way, go and destroy this little bitch

      • DeepFriedLies says:

        Naomi doesnt “own” him and he can date whom ever he wishes, including Luo. Naomi needs to grow up and stop acting like a jealous 10th grader.

  2. Jen says:

    Wait, wait. He believes Naomi told the paparazzi, or he thinks Zilin did?

    I’d go with Zilin. A girl wants to flaunt that hot billionaire – or at least I would!

    • bluecalling says:

      …and apparently she was tweeting ‘lin well wishes just one day before and then went silent…

      so although fun to think about, it does not make sense that naomi was after this chic at all. she is 25 and, if she was to be a top model, she would have been alread and if she was serious about working she would not be in ibiza on a yacht.

      i think it is more likely that naomi is shocked at VLAD not ‘lin, i mean, who would not do a billionaire that does not make your eyes want to leave your face and run into the gutters? him, on the other hand, could have gone after anyone else. his carelessness, and that’s me being nice, speaks volumes about how he feels about naomi and that is what probably hurts the most.

    • steph says:

      You know it wouldnt surprise me if it was Vlad that rang the paps. Luo is his vindictive F U at Naomi. So obvious hes trying to piss her off. And its working. Naomis best response would have been to yawn and roll over. Nothing pisses of an ex more than refusing to give a shit about his younger fukbud.

      • Maxine says:

        That’s exactly what I thought. The man’s a billionaire, he probably has hoards of models chasing him, but he had to pick the one connected to his ex. I think these stories were planted by Vlad.

      • Nev says:

        Yawn and roll over!!!! Haha love it actually.

    • Gabby says:

      Oooh…you right…check out web stories about Lou get caught sneaking into male pageant judges’ home before a competition in China…it was a scandal. This girl is resourceful, Naomi may have met her match. If her career never takes off, Naomi will get the blame.

    • karen says:

      The producers of the show may have notified the paps. That would bring more viewers.

  3. RHONYC says:

    careful Nay-Nay ~ last time you tried to destroy a rival model’s career you inadvertently unleashed the world’s skinnier light-skinned Oprah!

    which, Thank. You. by the way. 🙄

    grrr 👿

  4. marie says:

    there will be a boiled bunny sitting on the stove. Naomi is a beautiful, psychotic disaster & Luo had to have known Campbell’s brand of crazy right?

  5. Tapioca says:

    If you look at the top of her forehead in the header pic you can actually see the two marks on either side where she files down her horns.

  6. Nev says:

    Work it out Naomi, work it OUT!!!!!!!

  7. Naye in VA says:

    I don’t feel bad for the girl. She had to know who she was messing with.
    And what she did is pretty dirty anyway. Naomi Campbell was your MENTOR. And you hooked up with her ex. All I can do is laugh. Laugh and pray for her stupid ass.

    • Faye says:

      I honestly don’t understand this line of thinking. It would be one thing if Luo Zilin had hooked up with him while he was still dating Naomi, but there is no indication this happened. What is wrong with her dating him *afterward?* Just because Naomi slept with him, no woman who knows her can date him? I do not get that.

      I wish women would move away from this kind of medieval thinking. Cheating on a friend (or anyone) is obviously wrong, but dating someone who used to go out with a friend of yours is no big deal. If a man forbade a male friend of his from going out with a former girlfriend because she was his “property” or something, I think we’d all be pretty up in arms, and rightfully so.

      • NM9005 says:

        Disagree. As people already said, she was rooting for this girl. She was Campbells protégé. She helped this girl a great deal and spent a lot of time with her.

        If Vlad would be a fling, fine. But after so many years, 5 I think, the words ‘I love you’ must have been uttered at points. They were in a serious long-term relationship. You just DON’T fuck or date somebody who was that close to your mentor. That goes for every man and woman in this world. It is breaking a boundary. Imagine you would date the ex-bf of your boss? It’s just wrong on so many levels.

      • emmylou says:

        Eh, I think it’s more about professional courtesy then “friendship”. There is no way that Naomi and this girl were friends in real life, but they did have a pretty set professional relationship. If my boss divorced her husband, I would never in a million years dream of dating him!

      • Jenny says:

        No Faye, that is very common. If your friend was serious about a woman, it is a definite breaking of the guy code to date her. If A friend of mine was busy chasing after my exes behind mu back, she wouldn’t be my friend anymore, period.

        I do think it is different if some one is adult about it, comes to tell you they have feelings for your ex and wants to get your approval to see where it leads.

      • Faye says:

        Nope, still don’t agree. Dating a boss’s ex would be awkward, and probably not advisable from a career standpoint, but I still don’t see anything morally wrong with it (unless you were the person responsible for the break-up). And if a boss came after me and tried to actively ruin my career for dating an ex, I’d sue them.

        I have a friend who is married to a man I once dated, and I don’t see anything wrong with it. Maybe it’s different because we broke up, he didn’t dump me, but I don’t see her as having violated some kind of girl code. They’re happy together and much better suited than my ex and I would have been.

        As for respecting “boundaries,” the idea that Naomi Campbell, who physically and verbally abuses her own employees, has the right to judge anyone for violating boundaries is pretty hilarious to me.

      • Faye says:

        @Jenny – That may be common in your circles, but it’s not some universally acknowledged morality issue like cheating. I guess everyone has different ideas about what constitutes friendship. To me, if I would cut off a friend for pursuing happiness with someone just because that person used to date me, I’d be a very bad friend. That seems very selfish and petty to me. And the idea that someone needs your “permission” to date another human being, as if you own them . . .kind of incomprehensible. But maybe this is just a cultural differences thing. As I said, I was in the position of having a friend date and marry an ex of mine, and while she did let me know out of courtesy, so I wouldn’t feel awkward, in no way did she ask permission.

        I also think we have to distinguish between someone’s right to have whatever feelings they want, and their actions. Even if, for argument’s sake, we say Naomi is justified in feeling outraged at Luo – does that make it right, or even understandable, to destroy her career? That just seems kind of psycho to me.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Am I the only one that’s skeeved out by the idea of a dating a guy who had his dong in a good friend of mine at one point?

        Listen, I’m secure enough to be ok with a friend dating an ex but I just don’t get why any girl would WANT to.

      • Naye in VA says:

        Again the difference here is that they didn’t just date. They were in a long term committed relationship. FIVE YEARS is really serious, and by all accounts Naomi wasn’t over him. If your friend was still in love with a guy and you chose to date him, and flaunt it in her face, I would consider you morally reprehensible. That isn’t code. That’s COURTESY.

        And yes what Naomi is doing is pretty crazy. But…who didnt know she was crazy. Luo made her bed. Now she’s about to lie in it.

      • joy says:

        It’s called girl code.

      • hadleyb says:

        I think any rules for not dating/sexing a friends/co-workers ex is off the table as this guy is married.

        He is married! and no, I don’t care why he is still married, or separated, going through a hard time or divorce if he is still married, hey he’s still married!

      • dagdag says:

        If a friend of mine would be on a break with her bf or had just broke some weeks ago, I certainly would not hook up with him.

        Different story if the break was a LONG time ago, and I would inform my friend in the name of courtesy.

      • Bridget says:

        Hahaha, it’s funny that you guys think Naomi would ever be friends with this woman! She was a ‘mentor’ for her own show, a relationship that was entirely for the cameras. Naomi isn’t exactly famous for playing well with others.

      • Naye in VA says:

        @ OriginalKitten
        I have girlfriends who don’t mind passing a guy along, but I’ve told them I dont do seconds, no matter how good he looks. Last thing I want to think about is her while we are having sex. I actually have no interest in my partners sexual history aside from disease. I just don’t want to know.

      • Stewie says:

        “Medieval thinking” is an interesting way to put it but I don’t understand that part of your comment and I doubt anyone is arguing that anyone belongs to anyone else… Further can you explain why cheating is obviously wrong so I understand the distinction you’ve made.

      • Michelle says:

        Naomi and Vlad were also known to temporarily break up and get back together. Naomi may have thought they were off for NOW but that was normal for them.

        She may have wanted to focus on The Face while putting her relationship on hold not realizing there would be no relationship to come back to.

      • dena says:

        Exactly, Michelle. It’s like a 60 – 90 day probationary period. I don’t even know if the dust had settled on Naomi’s and Vlad’s relationship. And the way it looks, she probably broke it off with him and not the other way around.

    • karen says:

      Naye…There are no mentors in the modeling industry. It’s competition!!

      And don’t be so naive as to think Naomi ever cared for this model. Naomi only cares about Naomi.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Just from watching a few clips from the Face, I’d say that Naomi is pretty close to her team. She especially liked Luo and defended her to the other judges, was always praising her. She was really proud. There was one episode where the had to model wedding dresses, and Luo had a 25-30 pound gown on, had to walk down a huge staircase, down a runway and back up again. When she did it perfectly, Naomi looked like she wanted to cry. She was proud.

        Whether or not she was my friend, do you really think it’s advisable to be seen with your boss’s ex, very soon after they broke up, especially when she’s doing it to be seen. She could’ve gone with anyone of the million billionaires who like to hang out with hot models. But she went with Vlad. She and Vlad are both stupid, Vlad even more. Naomi’s going to squash him like a bug.

      • Emily C. says:

        The idea of a model, even a supermodel like Naomi Campbell, squashing any Russian billionaire like a bug is amusing. How do you think he got those billions? It wasn’t by feeding starving children in Chechnya.

        If Naomi really is throwing a hissy and causing problems for a Russian billionaire’s girlfriend, she’s the one in danger. If she has half a brain, she’ll be as sweet as humanly possible about all of this and move on quickly and publicly.

      • bluhare says:

        Should have scrolled down. I’m two days late and should have figured someone would have said what I think; that Naomi only “mentored” her while she was getting paid to do it, and her ex isn’t exactly used to people getting in his way. Naomi better be careful.

    • LeeBlaylock says:

      Just because Naomi used to date the man, doesn’t mean she can still have ownership over him. He is free to date and marry who he wants to now.

      Remember, we can not “own” someone.

      And seeking revenge is so immature and weak.

      • taxi says:

        Right. He is already committed, to his wife.

        How can anyone be in a “committed” relationship with a side-piece?

  8. Faye says:

    I really hope this isn’t true. Give it a rest, Naomi. Vladimir left her of his own accord. How is punishing Luo Zilin going to accomplish anything? It just makes her look pathetic. And she ought to know how the game works by now with these billionaires — they always trade you in for a younger model eventually.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      Sad but true.

    • karen says:

      Putin traded his wife in for a younger woman. And gave her a job!!!

      I’m beginning to like Russian men!

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      I so agree with your post Faye. Doesn’t Naomi know they the best revenge is to live well and ignore them?

      • Michelle says:

        Yes and this would piss Vlad off the most if his goal was to hurt Naomi. I do think Vlad initiated the relationship with Luo and it is interesting how he is flaunting it.

  9. Dawn says:

    I wouldn’t pick a fight with Naomi that’s for sure but crazy get’s old no matter how beautiful on the outside the person may be. The guy has billions and Naomi is always burning bridges, I can’t see her winning this one. She better back off and let it be.

    • karen says:


      She is still lovely, has a drop dead gorgeous body, is rich and doesn’t need any more negative publicity.

      Hope she finds someone. She seems very difficult to live with.

  10. DreamyK says:

    Married boyfriend breaks up with Naomi for new girlfriend.

    That’s so sick and strange really.

      Time for new competition show: Top Mistress!

    • Trashaddict says:

      Haha, I hope Vlad’s LEGAL WIFE is sitting back and smiling like the cat that swallowed the canary. It’s a wonder she hasn’t done a Bobbit on the guy.

  11. Talie says:

    I’m not sure how far Luo would’ve got in the fashion industry anyway…her look is more commercial, as is usual on these competition shows. Dating a billionaire was probably a safer bet.

  12. Jane's Wasted Talent says:

    Interesting that Page Six is now suggesting that Doronin is the one who wants to move on; why would he involve himself in such a messy hookup, guaranteed to attract Naomi’s attention?

    • Gabby says:

      I thought the same thing. And no way Naomi would want to be publicly humiliated by having paps photo ex smooching a new girlfriend. Expecially if she wanted him back.

  13. DanaG says:

    So much for Naomi’s anger management classes. She is a lot older then the girl so she should be more mature. She had 5 years being the billionaires’ girlfriend let the new model have a couple of weeks at least. This could all blow up in Naomi’s face too!

    Let’s not forget he is a married man. What goes around comes around. I bet his wife is sitting there with a smile on her face.

    • Jenny says:

      They are still married, but have not been together for many years. It was cheaper for him to stay married than to get a divorce. The wife has even gone to charity events sponsored by Campbell, so I can’t believe the relationship was contentious at all between them.

  17. anoneemouse says:

    You always here how bad Naomi treats everyone and never hear anything good about her….she is putting some heavy karma on herself by being such a horrible person. So what if her “married boyfriend” finds someone else? You can’t tell me she expected him to be “true” to her when he can’t even be true to his wife and daughter?


    • TeamNaomi says:

      They are still married probably because of the money as in the wife probably will take half of his fortune divide company’s mess up his empire. That’s problem about the divorce. And Actually Naomi and the wife are in good terms. Naomi hangs out with her and their daughter. If Naomi was just that type of “model” (in her cause with a huge super as a prefix) she would never know the wife the daughter and they would never be together for 5 years. besides Naomi has Money. Yes he’s a bilionaire but is not like his putting so much in her life that she could never afford. Naomi is bloody rich, hot, sucessful, legendary, a good person, and a bitch when is necessary and she doesnt apologize for defending herself and everything that she built up and every other jealous girl or aspiring of model tries to take it from her. You all wish you had Naomi Campbell’s Balls To be that tough and fearless. No need real need to destroy zilin career, she’s doing it herself. No one would EVER work with someone that could back stab the person that put you on the map. But naomi’s terms are easily understandable. Don’t blame her you would do the same if you could( so I guess your big problem is that you can’t, Oops…). xoxo Team Naomi

  26. WTF says:

    TEAM NAOMI ALL DAY! I give you a shot and support you and you start sleeping with my ex?
    When I break up with someone I (secretly) imagine them burning in a fiery pit, NOT sleeping with my protege! This ungrateful little guttersnipe is going DOWN!

    • karen says:

      What about Angelina Jolie??? She stole Brad Pitt from his WIFE!!!

      Perhaps Jolie should go down!

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        This isn’t even the same situation as Angelina and Jennifer. They met one time, before Mr. and Mrs. Smith even started filming. From what I remember, they shook hands, said hi, and Jennifer said something about Brad being excited to work on the movie. By that time, both Brad and Jennifer avoided each other, especially when working. She didn’t visit him when he was doing Troy or Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and he didn’t go and see the last taping of Friends (or were they already separated?).

        So they didn’t even know each other; Naomi and Luo did. I just hope Naomi saves the best (worst) of her wrath for Vlad. Maybe she’ll ignore him and squash Luo.

      • Anahnemus says:

        @Karen Here we go again… And what about JA? Justin was with Heidi when she came along. How about we leave both Angelina and JA out of threads that have nothing to do with them. Brad and Jennifer are over. Heidi and Justin are over. People break up. Breathe and move on.

        Not trying to be mean. It’s just past beating a dead horse at this point.

      • Emily C. says:

        @Virgilia — you’re right, it’s nowhere near the same situation. Brad was in a committed monogamous relationship with another woman when he fell for Angie, and vice versa. Vlad has an open relationship with his wife and had broken up with his girlfriend months before getting another one. Morally, just looking at that, it’s Luo >>>> Angie.

        I have nothing against Jolie at all. What happened to her — well, it happens. She and Brad seem to have tried to handle it as best they could at the time. Still, it was hardly squeaky clean.

        Whereas Luo is doing nothing wrong whatsoever. Well, unless you count dating a complete douche as something wrong, which yeah, but Naomi did it for longer.

      • karen says:

        And Vlad is living HIS life. So classless loser, nitwit Naomi needs to go away.

      • karen says:

        Anahnemus…What Angelina Jolie did was worst. I didn’t follow Justin.

        Luo is single. Vlad broke up with Naomi months ago and is openingly married. This is nobodys business but their own.

        Again, I think what Jolie did was way worst!

      • Janet says:

        Why in the world are you dragging the Unholy Triangle into this? But since you went there, how about Saint Jennifer the Dumped and Desperate stealing her boy-toy from his ex who he was going with for 14 years? Double standard much?

      • karen says:

        Janet? Your post is hilarious!!! LOL

        “Unholy Triangle”; “Saint Jennifer…Dumped and Desperate”; “Stealing ex”;

        Precisely my point. Luo has done nothing unusual, nor what many women and men, like Brad did.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        @ Emily C.

        I’m not getting into whether or not there was cheating. My point is that it’s not the same situation because Angelina and Jennifer did not know each other. Naomi and Luo were in a mentor-mentee relationship….which is why some people don’t like that she’s with/was photographed kissing and straddling Vlad. It’s like Kristen Stewart working with Liberty Ross and taking her kid out for ice cream, while sleeping with the director. It’s different.

        And it’s always professional courtesy. Yes, she didn’t “steal” him from Naomi, but Naomi was her mentor. Let’s be honest. Luo is with him for exposure, not for true love (unlike Brad and Angelina-we can agree that there was feeling there). And she really thought the best thing to do was to go for her mentor’s ex? Really? If it was a good break up or not, I wouldn’t do it in that business especially, where image is everything. Instead of being known as a model that Naomi championed, she’s going to be known as that model that Naomi’s ex humped and dumped to piss Naomi off.

    • Emily C. says:

      When you break up with someone, they go on to live their lives — probably happily. And sleep with other people, likely including people you knew. Sorry! You don’t own them.

  27. Anne says:

    Do not feel sorry for any of them. What did he think would happen when he got involved with NC. Naomi may be an awful person but Luo is just an opportunist who broke the rules. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, Naomi gave her her break, have some respect!

    • karen says:

      When you get a chance, TAKE IT. And if it changes your life, LET IT!

      • Emily C. says:


        I have never in my life met a man who got ticked off at his friend for dating his ex. Let alone getting angry at a former co-worker for it! I just can’t imagine having so little dignity to show I cared, if I did. I ended on good terms with all my exes, I want them to be happy, and if they can be happy with friends of mine, that’s two people happy whom I want to be happy! Win-win.

        Some women don’t seem able to let go. Very sad.

      • Janet says:

        @karen: Then you should have no problem with Brad Pitt leaving his ex-wife, whom he was stuck with in a loveless marriage, for a woman he fell in love with, should you? He saw his chance and took it. And it definitely changed his life for the better.

        (Referring to your comment above.)

      • karen says:

        Janet…Brad was still married. Aniston took the high road, unlike crazy Campbell.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Yes, the Vanity Fair, Vogue, and GQ articles were all the epitome of class….not to mention her association with that disgusting Girls Gone Wild founder, Joe Francis, and Chelsea Handler.

  28. siena says:

    I watched every episode of “The Face.” Naomi fully took Luo under her wing, supported her and mentored her in every way. It was amazing to watch this nurturing side of Naomi. IMHO this is not right on Luo’s part, whether or not Vlad had an active hand in the events. I don’t think Luo’s purpose on “The Face” was to really become a professional supermodel. I felt it was for exposure and maybe to upgrade to a better lifestyle via any which way.

  29. Michael says:

    Naomi needs to get over it. She’s a washed up has been. I don’t know why she has to act like such a diva all the damned time.

  30. Jade says:

    I can’t believe the amount of people here cheering Naomi on. Once a bully, always a bully.

    I think she’s definitely getting karma for everyone that’s she’s ever abused in the past.

    I can see her being alone in old age. Alone, miserable & bitter. And those good looks are on their way out too so good luck Naomi….

    • Janet says:

      Naomi’s a stone bitch, but Luo is a straight-up idiot.

      As several people have already observed, this is a classic case of biting the hand that fed you. Luo deserves to have her career trashed.

      As for dating a friend’s ex, I think it depends on who dumped whom. If the guy dumped my friend, I wouldn’t touch him with a ten-foot pole. But if she dumped him for somebody else, and didn’t mind me dating him after she dumped him, I might go for it.

  31. gogoGorilla says:

    I am starting to wonder if this is just a massive publicity stunt. Is the new cycle of her show supposed to air soon?

    • karen says:

      I think so also.

      They break up. Show begins with low ratings. Therefore create gossip. Viewers will tune in. (Not me)

      Great PR move.

  32. babythestarsshinebrite says:

    Team Naomi!

  33. Kate says:

    What the………did she have her chin elongated?? She looks cray cray.

    • LAK says:

      It her weave that’s creating that effect.

      She is practically bald except for hair in the middle of her head. The weave is fixed higher past her natural hairline, and because it’s a pocahantas style, it has effect of elongating her face and giving her a pointy chin.

      If she added a fringe as she has been doing for years now, her chin wouldn’t stand out as you see in the picture with the billionaire.

  34. Emily C. says:

    There is nothing wrong with dating a single man. And someone who used to date someone you worked with for a short time? What’s next, women won’t be allowed to date someone who used to date a cashier at the grocery store they went to? You don’t own your exes.

    You run in the same circles as someone, you’re gonna end up dating someone they dated. The ones being unprofessional here are the ones acting like this is some kind of betrayal. Give me a break.

    • LeeBlaylock says:

      Emily, I agree with you 100%.

      Everyone has dated someone else’s ex, at some point in time. It happens.

      Eventually, people move on. And especially in small towns, people do run in the same circles.

      I think its controlling and almost psychopathic to try and prevent an ex-boyfriend from dating anyone you know. This irks me so much because I used to have a female friend who had slept with almost every man in the city, and she got furious if any of her other friends wound up dating those men later on.

  35. A says:

    Luo is 25! Her career is over with or without Naomi’s “help”. Plus, she looks older than Naomi.

  36. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    What a mess.

  37. e.non says:

    damn… i don’t know who’d be the scarier foe to have pissed off at you — naomi or the russian mob… lol

  38. Jade says:

    Uh I’m sorry but I don’t think Luo was being unprofessional or she went against the implicit girl code. First of all, putting aside the technicality that he is married, Naomi and him broke up. She is free to hook up with him. This is not like sleeping with your mentor’s husband. That would then be career suicide and unprofessional because she appraises you and you are mixing social life with your working life. Even then, HR may choose not to get involved because the husband is not in the same company so what is the problem? As for the girl code, that is decided between friends and this doesn’t apply to every girl. I can be ok if my friend wants to hook up with an ex. Sure, it is awkward. But the relationship did not work, why pursue it? Some people can let go of things and each relationship is different. However, I would have to say she did not do things correctly. She should have just asked Naomi if she was ok with it. This does not need a girl code, it’s just pure concern of not wanting to hurt someone. If she did not, then that is dumb and hurting your mentor relationship. If she was ok, then it’s ok. Just to add, I am a different Jade from the earlier poster(s).

  39. Me says:

    So let me get this straight. Vald gets with a Naomi lookalike right after they break up and is papped with the lookalike on his yacht. Naomi does nothing about it because she’s too busy living her life. So then about a week later, Vlad gets with Naomi’s mentee and is papped with her on his yacht. How convenient that there are now ‘sources’ talking about how upset Naomi is and how she got the stupid girl fired.

    I’m sorry but if people can’t see that this Vlad character is the culprit in all of this ridiculousness, I don’t know what to tell you.

    This guy called the paps himself and made sure he was seen and photographed with both of these women. I’m really supposed to believe that it was just coincidence that he had a woman who looks just like his ex on his boat for the whole world to see right after he broke up with said ex? And I’m really supposed to believe that it was just coincidence that he then hooked up with the woman his ex is mentoring?

    Sorry, but the only rat I smell here is in the form of a vindictive Russian billionaire. All those ‘sources’, all the tipping off of paps, all the alleged quotes, that’s all him.

    • A says:

      Couldn’t have said it better myself!
      He wants to make Naomi jealous for some reason. She must have hurt him, maybe she was the one who broke up with him? She did say something about wanting to focus on work so maybe she didn’t want to be on his beck and call.
      He bought her a house the shape of the eye of horus and have done a lot of crazy (expensive!!) things for her to make her happy so….I really think he loves her still.

  40. LAK says:

    This is a [ex]lovers’ quarrel where they try to hurt each other as much as possible now they have broken up.

    The Billionaire has been papped in various countries on his yacht, cannodling with different models, including one that was a Noami Lookalike to apparent indifference from Noami.

    Since he was getting squat, he raised the stakes and went for someone potentially close to Naomi. And this time he has a reaction, if we are to believe all these reports.

    Why would Naomi ruin the model instead of hitting out at the Billionaire? He is a Russian Oliargach. He didn’t become one by being nice to kittens. The model is the easier target.

    And the model is stupid for coming between these two, because they do love each other. No one would be this vindictive to their ex unless there was big love [now turned to hate].

    He publicly declared his love for her at her Cannes birthday party saying that she was his wild woman that he was very much in love with.

    The point is that he has been hitting out at her, and this latest model was clearly a bullseye. getting this sort of reaction from Naomi indicates that perhaps she cared about this model. And since she can’t hurt the billionaire directly, she’s going for the next best thing.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      After thinking about it, I agree with you LAK.

      They’re both idiots, and I hope she doesn’t ever look his way again. Otherwise it’ll be like Jennifer Aniston and John Mayor or Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson all over again.

    • bluhare says:

      LAK, I’m normally with you, but not on this one. If this is “love”, then count me out. It’s two egotistical maniacs who can’t stand to lose.

  41. annaloo. says:

    Weirdly enough, I honestly don’t think Naomi would do all these things people are saying. I thin kshe would blow the both of them off– and I think the people around her will (like your own friends, and I knowmy girlfriends certainly would) take their own unsuuportive actions towards an enemy. I really don’t think that Naomi is sitting around plotting or planning or asking for this. I do think Luo was stupid and thoughtless to get involved with him, and she had better get herself knocked up with a billionaire’s baby.

    • Ella says:

      I don’t think so either….Luo is an old(er) model so maybe her agency fired her because she’s too old? She does honestly look about the same age as Naomi and Karolina.

  42. Mew says:

    Naomi could definitely do it. She’s a b… to hold a looong grudge. And, she’s not looking so good anymore.

    • annaloo. says:

      I don’t know.. after that amazing prison walk when she was released.. I think Naomi will just get herself a BETTER and richer boyfriend and leave both of these two amateurs in the dust. At least, that’s what I would expect of her.

    • LeeBlaylock says:

      She is past her prime for modeling. So is Kate Moss.

  43. OhDear says:

    The more I think about it, the more I think Zilin called the paps. She gives off famewhore vibes. Not sure whether the ex-bf was involved in getting those photos published.

    As for the whole “girl code” thing – no matter what you believe, she or Vlad should have given Naomi a heads up before hooking up, or at least before the photos came out.

  44. LeeBlaylock says:

    Also, I would date Naomi’s ex-boyfriend, even if I knew her socially. Knowing someone doesn’t mean they are your “friend” and that their ex is off limits.

    Its funny how women seem to think any woman they know cannot date their ex-boyfriend.

    Have some class and move on.

  45. Mei says:

    Luo lied and denied that she hooked up… UGLY! Don’t mess with Naomi — she’s dangerous.

  46. annaloo. says:

    I don’t think Naomi gives two rats asses about these two..

  47. Noinin says:

    Luo is such an idiot. Her behavior is morally unacceptable – you don’t date a married man, and you don’t date your mentor’s ex boyfriend, especially when it was written all over the place that she had a hard time getting over him. Naomi knows everybody in the business. Of course it would be detrimental for Luo’s career. And the guy is probably only seeing her as a way to get back at Naomi and another disposable model to have fun with. She ruined her career for nothing.

  48. Noinin says:

    Luo is not really clever. Her behavior is morally unacceptable – you don’t date a married man, and you don’t date your mentor’s ex boyfriend, especially when it was written all over the place that she had a hard time getting over him.
