Catwalks and catfights

Well, it's nice to see that she's mellowing with age.

New York Police were on the lookout for stroppy Amazonian supermodel Naomi Campbell yesterday, after she slapped and punched her chauffeur. As the driver managed to bring the car to a halt, the leggy lout leapt out and went on the run, like a cross between Barry McGuigan and an immaculately dressed gazelle.

Of course, it's not the first time that the pouty pugilist has laid into her employees - she seems to have a habit of slapping around her subordinates, like Russell Crowe with a migraine and a parking ticket.

In 2000 she pleaded guilty to attacking her assistant with a jewel-encrusted mobile phone (no tacky pay-as-you-go handset for Ms Campbell), and again in 2007 when a pair of her jeans went missing. Over the years she's attacked so many of her staff she makes Gordon Ramsay seem easy-going.

Interestingly, it was announced today that the British public have voted Naomi the UK's angriest celebrity, thanks to her history of titanic tantrums. Let's just hope that the voting records have been destroyed, so that no-one wakes up to find the aggrieved beauty standing on their doorstep brandishing a Vertu handset.

After the incident in New York, Naomi's spokesman Jeff Raymond begged for understanding (he's probably used to that), stating "There shouldn't be a rush to judgement." And quite right too, after all, there's no reason for anyone to fly off the handle.

Standing up for (rather than to) his intimidating boss, he added "Naomi will cooperate voluntarily, and there is more to the story than meets the eye." The driver's right eye to be precise.

Still, the good news is that it shouldn't take the police too long to apprehend our on-the-lam lovely. Anyone who remembers her famous Vivienne Westwood fall knows that she won't get far on foot.
