Campbell fires back at former model boss

Campbell fires back at former model boss

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has taken aim at her former boss, blaming him for her reputation as an awkward diva.

The Brit insists she'll never forgive Elite chief John Casablancas for the comments he made about his one-time top model when she left his agency - because they've stuck with her.

Firing off about the father of The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas in the new issue of America's Giant magazine, Campbell said: "He had to attack me because I decided to leave. Models can leave agencies. I was not under a written contract.

"I was shocked to see how he acted. He started that first rumour (that I was tough to work with)."

But Campbell insists she has had the last laugh - because she's still working with the world's top photographers: "The people that love me, love me and that's what matters to me."
