Naomi Campbell in yacht trash rumpus

Italian cuisine provokes £30k 'rampage'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

WSA Supermodel Naomi Campbell allegedly caused £30k worth of damage to her lover's £1.5m yacht after an Italian chef's "romantic meal" for the two nautical lovebirds failed to float her boat.

According to The Sun, 36-year-old Campbell and Dubai-born prince Badr Jafar had moored the 100-ft "Nasma" in Viareggio on the Tuscan Riviera and summonsed the cook from a local restaurant to create a "memorable, romantic meal".

Sadly, the chef - known only as "Andrea" - failed to correctly interpret the international jetset definition of "romantic", and served up a "simple tomato, mozzarella and dried ham starter" accompanied by a local white wine.

Campbell immediately told him "where to shove it", which provoked a verbal retaliation in "colourful Tuscan dialect" which in turn triggered a textbook supermodel tantrum during which Campbell allegedly "lashed out at antiques, light fittings, china plates and glasses".

An eyewitness in Viareggio harbour reported: "All hell seemed to break loose. All you could hear was shouting and screaming in English. There was the sound of plates being broken.

"Some of the crew later said the kitchen was a complete mess and the curtains and cushions had all been ripped apart."

Campbell recently appeared in a New York court on a charge of second degree assault on her housekeeper who suffered four stitches to her head "after being hit by a mobile phone following a row". She has previously been accused of attacking her personal assistant with a BlackBerry. ®
