Naomi Campbell To Testify About Her Blood Diamond from Liberia

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has received a subpoena to testify about the blood diamond she allegedly received from former Liberian president Charles Taylor. The request comes from the attorney of Naomi's modeling agent, Carole White. White, along with actress Mia Farrow, is testifying about Naomi's receipt of several uncut diamonds at a dinner party at Nelson Mandela's house in South Africa in 1997.

Charles Taylor is being charged with using the sale of blood diamonds to purchase weapons for revolutionaries involved in a bloody rebellion in Sierra Leone. Naomi has famously refused to comment on the issue, saying that she does not want to get involved, Zimbio informs.

Prosecutors allege that Mr Taylor received diamonds from Sierra Leone rebels shipped in mayonnaise jars, and took them to South Africa to exchange for weapons. Under cross-examination, Mr Taylor was asked about the alleged gift. “Total nonsense,” he replied. Ms Campbell has also denied receiving a diamond from Mr Taylor. “I didn’t receive a diamond, and I’m not going to speak about that. Thank you very much. And I’m not here for that,” she told ABC television last month before storming out of an interview.

The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund said that there was no record of Ms Campbell giving it a diamond, Times Online reports.
