Naomi Campbell assistant recalls BlackBerry assault trauma

'She got really, really upset'

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

WSA The personal assistant allegedly attacked with a BlackBerry by battling clotheshorse Naomi Campbell has appeared on US TV to give the full, gory details.

Amanda Brack, 20, entertained The Tyra Banks Show earlier this week with claims that the supermodel attacked her three times, spat in her face and threw her passport in a swimming pool.

The infamous PDA incident, Brack claims, occurred not in Rio de Janeiro as previously thought, but rather in Mexico when Campbell allegedly "cornered her against a wall over problems with flights and luggage". Then, Brack recalled: "She got really, really upset and slammed her Blackberry in my face."

Brack went on to claim that the only thing which saved her from a righteous techno-beating was Campbell's hairdresser, who intervened to pull off the enraged bitchslapper.

Brack also claimed that Campbell's international litany of abuse included the launching of a friend's mobile phone at her head (New York); spitting in her face (Morocco); and cutting up her passport and chucking it in a swimming pool (also Morocco).

Campbell's other alleged escapades encompass: throwing a cell phone at the head of housekeeper Ana Scolavino (New York); causing £30,000 worth of damage to former lover Badr Jafar's yacht (Tuscan Riviera); and going mental outside the aformentioned ex-squeeze's flat at 3.30am (London).

Campbell, meanwhile, is in Australia for a "private engagement". She landed aboard a Quantas flight at Sydney yesterday and, according to News.com.au, gave a Qantas flight attendant a piece of her mind with: "Fuck off" and "I am never flying Qantas again."

The outburst was attributed to Campbell's mistaken belief that Qantas had tipped off the media as to her arrival in Oz. In fact, representatives of The Saturday Daily Telegraph just happened to be waiting for another VIP arrival when they heard she'd landed. Ms Campbell set them straight, too, telling members of the Lucky Country's press to "Fuck off" and "Respect my privacy".

Campbell is still awaiting trial in New York on the Ana Scolavino second degree assault rap. We suspect the US media will not much respect her privacy when she is eventually hauled before the beak. ®
