Supermodel Naomi Campbell is being accused of attacking someone with another accessory: her purse.
An Italian photographer claims that his left was hurt and his face was scratched after Naomi beat him with her purse while in Sicily, the New York Daily News reports.
"First she hit with her bag, screaming at me and then she tried to slap me. I managed to avoid her – but her nails still got my eye," the paparazzo told an Italian newspaper La Repubblica. "For a few seconds I could not see a thing. I could hear that her bodyguards and her boyfriend were trying to drag her away."
Allegations of the high-fashion attack were later brushed off by one of Naomi’s reps in a statement.
“Media reports circulating that Naomi Campbell attacked a photographer in Lipari, Sicily are completely untrue,” they said. "The photographer was seen following Naomi on a small boat, taking photographs, the day after the alleged incident took place.”
To add insult to injury, police in Lipari said no complaint was ever filed about the alleged beat down.
