Naomi in 'undisciplined' shocker

Everyone knows that Naomi Campbell was always the 'unpredictable super' in a crowd of fairly sensible models, including Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Claudia Schiffer. But now Naomi's former agent Carol White has given an interview revealing the full extent of the model's imperious ways.

Carol told The Telegraph, 'Christy and Naomi are very different characters. Christy was a dream, very professional and calm, whereas Naomi was less disciplined and used to get me into trouble. Mostly it was because she was late, but sometimes she just didn't turn up. I used to lie to her about what time she had to be at a job, but she soon worked that out, so I had to lie further. If the call time was 10am, I would tell her it was 8am so she would think it was 9am, but I still had to cross my fingers that she'd be on time. She missed planes too. Once after she missed a flight to Austria I had to organise a private jet to get her to the job because the money was so huge she had to be there.'

She also reminisced about Naomi's flighty attitude, saying, 'Another time a Dutch nursery named a rare black tulip after her and asked her to promote it. Hundreds of the flowers were driven to London in a refrigerated van to fill a studio. Naomi was supposed to lie in the middle of them for a commercial, but she didn't turn up for the shoot - she was sick. These poor guys watched the tulips wilt in the studio and the ad never happened.' Naomi Campbell; flower killer...
