Naomi Campbell “air rage” row turns nasty
Details of supermodel Naomi Campbell’s “air rage” outburst in April came to light in court on Friday, and very nasty it sounded too. According to the prosecution, there was a lot of swearing and shouting, some flailing arms and legs, spitting and general accusations of racism, all on a British Airways aircraft preparing to take off for Los Angeles. The reason? A lost piece of luggage.
Bad blood between Campbell and the airline that reportedly banned her over the incident turned sourer still after the 38-year-old subsequently accused someone on the flight of calling her a “Golliwog supermodel”, explaining that it was “not the passenger”. BA has come out with a firm denial of any allegations of racism, but we may not have heard the last of the infamous April 3 inflight incident just yet.
