Justice is a “terrible inconvenience”
Naomi Campbell is at The Hague today testifying in the war crimes trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor about those diamonds. Remember she lost her sh-t about those diamonds? The presenter’s face at the end of this video kills me.
Naomi’s testimony has been well documented. She says she received a pouch with some “dirty” looking stones, she said they were in her possession for just a few hours, and then she said she handed them off to someone else, acknowledging that they were “probably” a gift from Taylor and thinking nothing special of it because, in her position, she gets gifts all the time.
Campbell has been on holiday in the French Riviera with her billionaire Russian boyfriend virtually all summer. They had to subpoena her ass to testify as she had initially refused. And, not one to let this sh-t slide, she made that declaration at the international tribunal today:
“I don’t want to be here. I was made to be here ... This is a terrible inconvenience to me. Obviously I just want to get this over with and get on with my life.”
In fairness to Naomi, she claims she didn’t want to publicly make any statement because, given Taylor’s reputation, she supposedly feared for the safety of her loved ones. Apparently her voice became a little wavery at this point, the drama queen threatened to reveal herself. She managed to hold it together though through the torturous session and has since been excused. Probably went shopping to make it all better. Justice is exhausting.
