Naomi Campbell Punches Camera During Interview About Former African Dictator
Naomi Campbell's temper has gotten the best of her again.
The supermodel, who is already known for having a short fuse, punched a camera and stormed out of an ABC News interview when she was asked if she ever received a "blood diamond" as a gift from ousted African dictator Charles Taylor.

"I didn't receive a blood diamond and I'm not going to speak about that," Campbell angrily answered before leaving.
Actress Mia Farrow — who visited the home of South African president Nelson Mandela at the same time as Campbell and Taylor, the former president of Liberia — told prosecutors she heard Campbell describe receiving a "huge diamond" from Taylor in the middle of the night.
Taylor, 62, is at the center of an international controversy involving the precious stones. He has been accused of possessing uncut diamonds used to fuel a campaign of terror in Sierra Leone between 1997 to 2001, according to ABC News. He is currently imprisoned in the Hague and is awaiting trial.
Naomi Campbell not facing charges after driver debacle
Campbell's recent outburst is far from her first: The temperamental 39-year-old was accused of attacking her New York City driver last month, pled guilty to assaulting a police officer at a London airport in 2008, pled guilty to hitting her housekeeper with a crystal-studded BlackBerry in 2007, was accused of beating her assistant with a cell phone in 2005 and pled guilty to assaulting another assistant with a telephone in 1998.
