Naomi Campbell is known for her temper tantrums and feisty temperament, and now the supermodel has become embroiled in yet another assault allegation.

The 46-year-old reportedly engaged in a scuffle with her PR ‘minder’ last year, which left the man – who is 20 years her junior – with a bruised face. Naomi had apparently suspected the publicist of tipping off the paparazzi to her whereabouts while recovering from a foot operation, and made a desperate grab for his phone.  ‘At the time, Naomi had had an operation and was in a wheelchair or on crutches, and the photographers seemed to know where she’d be,’ reveals an insider. ‘She wanted to get the phone off the PR man because he was texting in her presence and she grabbed it.’

This isn’t the first such case for Naomi, who has been accused of nearly a dozen assaults and has four court rulings against her.

In 2000, she famously admitted to hitting her assistant Georgina Galanis with a phone. Georgina also claimed the model had threatened to throw her out of a moving car.

Naomi has also admitted to throwing a phone at her housekeeper, and attacking policemen and photographers.

The supermodel has since changed PRs and is denying his version of the incident. ‘She does regret snatching the mobile phone because she was a bit paranoid about being followed by paparazzi, but she has no idea about him receiving any injuries,’ says a pal.
