Supermodel cat-fight: Naomi Campbell is "a bully"
Naomi Campbell is a bully according to Russian model Kira Dikhtyar, who appeared on her fashion show 'The Face'.
Kira Dikhtyar claims the supermodel was nasty to her from the moment they met filming the fashion show, which she partly blames on the fact Naomi's Russian boyfriend, Vlad Doronin, had recently left her for one of the show's contestants.
She told the New York Post newspaper: "Naomi hates Russians. She's an amazing woman, but it's very hard to work with her. She put all her [negative] energy on me. After filming ended, they sent me to doctors. I'm still recovering. The network is still paying for my psychiatrist."
A friend of Kira's added: "No matter what Kira did, there was no way to please her."
Naomi, 43, has a history of temper problems, and has had numerous charges of assault brought against her by former employees and assistants. In 2008 she pleaded guilty to assaulting two police officers in an incident which also saw her banned for life from travelling with British Airways.
Speaking about the way she handles contestants on 'The Face' last year, she said: "[I give them] tough love. I'm straight up, I'm honest. When my girls do something great, I praise them and pamper them. And when they do something wrong, I'm gonna tell them. I'm not gonna sugarcoat it, because they're not going to get it sugarcoated in the real world."
