The 45-year-old supermodel Naomi Campbell was sentenced to six months of imprisonment. The Sicilian court issued this verdict for beating the photographer Gaetano Di Giovanni, attacked by the model in 2009.
Six years ago, Naomi Campbell hit the face of the Italian photographer with a bag, and then also scratched him for photographing her during a date with the Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin. The lovers were resting on businessman’s yacht and decided to have dinner at one of the nearby islands of Sicily.
In 2009, Naomi Campbell’s lawyers were able to negotiate with the photographer and settle the matter out of court. However, Sicily’s prosecutor insisted on the trial with the decision which is now disagreed by Campbell. The model and her lawyer Guido Carlo Alleva intend to appeal from the Court’s judgement.
