Naomi Campbell Received Blood Diamonds

British Supermodel Naomi Campbell has admitted that she was given diamonds in the form of “small dirty looking stones”. These stones turned out to be diamonds from men she believed to be representatives of former Liberian dictator Charles Taylor. Miss Campbell, 40, was subpoenaed to appear before the UN war crimes tribunal, where Charles Taylor stands accused of 11 charges of war crimes in Sierra Leone, including counts of murder, rape and sexual slavery.

In court, Miss Campbell said she’d actually been gifted a selection of smaller gems following a 1997 charity bash at Nelson Mandela’s house. Two men knocked on the door of Campbell’s room late at night, explaining. They handed her a pouch which she opened the next morning and found it contained “a few small very dirty looking stones”.

Naomi Campbell also testified Thursday that she had never heard of Charles Taylor, Liberia or blood diamonds when she met the Liberian dictator in 1997.

Denzel Washington to play Alvin Greene in Movie

Alvin Michael Greene, the Democratic U.S. Senate nominee in the 2010 United States Senate election, wants Denzel Washington to portray him when the movie of his life is made. Greene continues to receive national media attention in the wake of his confounding victory last month. He just told the Times Sunday that there has been a high level of interest in developing the project, and he even has an actor picked out to play him.

Denzel Washington is taking some time away from his incredible career right now. He was spotted on vacation in Portofino, Italy on Monday, July 12. Joined by his beautiful family, wife Paulette and their sons John David and Malcolm, the talented actor enjoyed some rest on a luxury yacht while also stepping out on the town with friends for a dinner and drinks.
