Naomi Campbell punches & slaps NY limo driver


Oh, brother. The wild beast known only as “The Naomi” has attacked once again. This time, her victim is not some poor little assistant who “stole” $200 jeans and needed to be smacked in the head with a bedazzled phone. Nor was the victim a paparazzo who was obviously in desperate need of having his eyes clawed with Naomi’s Talons of Doom. Nor was the victim a Heathrow cop who happened to be standing around, waiting to be spit at while Naomi was trying to have a massive hissy fit. This time the victim was a limo driver who incurred The Naomi’s wrath by… driving her around New York. That seems to be it. He was just driving when The Naomi began punching and slapping the back of his head. JESUS.

Ill-tempered temptress Naomi Campbell allegedly attacked a hired chauffeur today who was driving her around the city, then fled the car once he called 911, police sources said.

The model was being driven by the unidentified driver at about 3 p.m. when she flew into a rage and hit him near the corner of East 58th Street and Second Avenue.

Police did not say what prompted Campbell to get mad and punch the driver. The attack caused the limo driver to call 911 to report the alleged assault. The 39-year-old Campbell, who was sitting in the back seat, then fled the car, police said.

Cops later interviewed the 27-year-old driver at the 17th Precinct station house, along with Campbell’s assistant, who had hired him for the day. The driver reported having “bumps and bruises” as a result of the attack, a police official said.

The former British-born supermodel has had some anger management issues in the past.

In February 2000, Campbell pleaded guilty in Toronto to an assault charge for beating an assistant two years earlier.

In another famous case involving Campell, she was charged in March 2006 with throwing a cell phone at her maid Ana Scolavino in Manhattan.

Cantankerous catwalker eventually pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault for hitting Scolavino and was sentenced to serve two days of anger management classes and five days of community service cleaning up Sanitation offices.

In June 2008, Campbell was sentenced to 200 hours of community service after she pleaded guilty to being abusive towards a British Airways crew at London’s Heathrow Airport.

Oh, yes. The Naomi bolted. The police had to “canvass the area”. I swear to God, I heard the Law & Order “DUN-DUH” chang in my head while reading this. You know Jack McCoy is going to handle this case personally. As of Tuesday evening, The Naomi’s spokesperson told Us Weekly: “There shouldn’t be a rush to judgment. Naomi will co-operate voluntarily, and there is more to the story than meets the eye.” Uh… more than meets the eye? You do know that you’re client beats people in the face and claws at their EYES don’t you?

UPDATE: As of 8 a.m. Wednesday morning, The Naomi is still on the loose on the streets of New York. Her limo driver, a 27-year-old dude named Miodrag Mejdina has not pressed charges, but police have still filed a harassment report. Radar has comments from the NYPD police commissoner: “We’re looking to talk to her. We anticipate that will happen,” Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne told the NY Daily News. “He said Ms. Campbell had struck him in the back of the head or neck while he was driving, causing him to hit his head on the steering wheel.”

    She’s what?, 40? And she still acts like a dumb teenage bitch?
    Boring as hell…

  2. bite me says:

    damn NaNa time for those anger mangement classes again…

  3. mslewis says:

    Somebody needs to just beat the crap out of her. Oh, wait. One of her rich boyfriends beat her up a few years ago. But then she filed charges and actually won a few million from him. Oh well. This woman needs help before one of her underlings kills her.

  4. Neelyo says:

    She’s still on the loose? As a New Yorker, I’m terrified.

  5. escapee says:

    If she were a man this would be taken much more seriously. She obviously has not learned her lesson from her past slaps on the wrist and needs to learn the hard way that she has no right to assault people. Let her spend some time in jail and let’s see how tough she is in there.

  6. CourtneyH says:

    Yeah, I’m with escapee. Just because she’s a woman doesn’t mean she can’t be an abusive person who deserves to be in jail on assault charges.

  7. SolitaryAngel says:

    She’s dangerous.

  8. Annabelle says:

    Psycho. Needs to face some serious time like anyone else would- not just a few hours of community service. Repeat offender, needs to be in jail

  9. Rianna says:

    She is still living back in the early 90’s when models could get away with this kind of stuff.
    But hey.. at least she didn’t beat his ass with a phone this time.
    And Neelyo… stay in your house, call in sick for work. If you have to go to work and you see her strolling up the sidewalk like she owns it… run like hell lol!

  10. BReed says:

    It is indeed unfortunate that so lovely a creature could have such poor control over herself. She needs some jail time for assault.

  11. Qb says:

    One day she is going to run in to the wrong person and she is going to get her ass handed to her. I don’t think she will do this to her russian billionaire boyfriend and my candidate to beat her ass is the wife of her boyfriend who haves no plan of leaving her husband.

  12. princess pea says:

    Why do people work for her? She must pay really well, because with a reputation for abusing her staff and any other service personnel, I really don’t know who wants to get close.

  13. mockey says:

    I want to see her mugshot

  14. Melanie says:

    Is she really only 39? Seems like she has been assaulting minions since the 70’s.

  15. bite me says:

    According to the New York Times the police no longer wants to speak with her and no charges will be filed

  16. Babalon says:

    Got to love how people assume the driver did nothing wrong just because they don’t like Naomi.

  17. anoneemouse says:

    Someone needs to knock her out! And more importantly, this ANIMAL needs to be locked up – clearly she will never learn!

  18. princess pea says:

    @ Babalon – I don’t think that’s necessarily the case here. I’m having a hard time figuring out when it’s reasonable to hit the driver of a moving vehicle in the head…

  19. GatsbyGal says:

    How many people does she have to assault before she gets thrown in jail? Stupid bitch.

  20. TaylorB says:


    If you see her I suggest the duck and run approach, and don’t forget to serpentine.

  21. Johndoe says:

    How many people does she have to beat up before she goes to jail?

    Like a regular person?

  22. Cheyenne says:

    I wish she would slap me so I would have a good excuse to kick the living shit out of her.

  23. grisgris says:

    She may be pretty on the outside but she is an absolute failure as a human being.

  24. whateva says:

    haha – so true commenter ‘Melanie’ !! and besides all this, Ms. Campbell has done a little something to her own face in the meantime. anyone? (eyelift)

  25. snapdragon says:

    what a monster she has become. bitch needs to spend some time in jail with some hardened ladies who will not give her swag bags and tell her she’s fabulous.

  26. Mouse says:

    This bitch needs to hit someone who’s going to hit back. So she just sucker punched her limo driver and then ran off down the street? I’ve never heard of someone who needed their ass handed to them more than this slag.

  27. Lisa says:

    This spoiled biotch needs her ass kicked!!!!!!!!!!!!! LIKE NOW!!!!!!

  28. Megan says:

    Well look how people reacted to Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna, and yet for Naomi it’s like uh ohhh not Naomi again! I think they are both as bad as each other and she should be treated with the same contempt as Chris Brown. She needs to go to jail, she can’t just randomly assault people whenever she feels like it.

  29. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    @Babalon: If it were someone else, I’m sure more people would be wary of the accusations, but getting Naomi Campbell to physically assault someone on her payroll is like shooting fish in a sardine can. Smack Lady’s reputation precedes her, and if she doesn’t like people jumping to conclusions she’s got a long road of not committing crimes in front of her.

    I’ll tell you what’s a crime: that rhinoplasty. Hi-yo! I think she’s been in the industry since she was in her early teens. I’m almost certain she was fourteen years old when she appeared that Culture Club video.

  30. greekfrk says:

    And why doesn’t someone have the nads to cold cock her in the jaw when assaulted by her?

  31. j. ferber says:

    Her cheeks look like they have ping pong balls in them and her neck is pulled so taut I can see the striated muscles. She is a real-life Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: with her billionaire boyfriends she’s fawning and demure while she kicks the asses of the poor. Her good friend Iman said Naomi was a bitch, but she brings it. Not so much anymore. Why in the world can’t she be held accountable for her transgressions?

  32. trashaddict says:

    One or maybe even two fights would be one thing, but this woman really needs to spend a few days in a real jail with cellmates who won’t put up with that kind of shit. The fashion community show themselves off as complete morons by continuing to give her and Kate Moss work. The rest of us manage to control our inner child while earning a tenth of the pay and I am so sick of hearing about her shitty entitled behavior.

  33. Chana says:

    She needs anger management classes. Like, weeks of them. Not two days. I don’t think jail will do anything for her, just like jail didn’t affect Paris Hilton’s ridiculous arse.

    She needs a court-ordered, at least 5 to 6 week course. Two days isn’t going to do anything for a habitual abuser.

    Megan, I seem to take the tone of this post as WTH why is Naomi Campbell on the loose and allowed to attack people?

  34. Seer says:

    She sounds like she has mental or emotional issues. There are people who are bipolar (if that’s her problem), and it’s not just happy-sad. It can be violent and enraged – and then low, for example. At times and without warning, she becomes so full or rage that she loses control.

    Apart from anger managament, she needs a good therapist. She needs help.

  35. NicoleAM says:

    I hope the next person she hits is packing heat.

    Driving a taxi or limousine offers immigrants the opportunity to begin climbing the ladder in pursuit of the American dream. The job requires hard work and the earnings are modest, but taxi and limo driving offers independence and the opportunity to make hard work and hustle pay off.
