So Apparently Naomi Campbell Didn’t Really Assault Her Driver

Weird. I guess when you peg a few assistants with cell phones and are arrested for assaulting officers at an airport, people are quick to believe your limo driver when he says you hit him. But apparently, that’s not what happened with Naomi Campbell on Tuesday. Driver Miodrag Mejdina has recanted his story that Campbell smacked him so hard in the back of the head that his face hit the steering wheel, which is what he’d told police. They’d been looking for Campbell for questioning. “This whole thing has been blown out of proportion and I apologize to Ms. Campbell for causing that to happen,” the driver said. “[I] got angry and overreacted.”

Naomi was pleased to hear this public statement. “I was accused of unacceptable behavior towards a driver in New York,” she said. “I have worked very hard on correcting my previous wrongdoings and I will not be held hostage to my past. I try to treat everyone with respect and I am pleased the driver has apologized. I would like to put the last few days behind me and move on.” Now, maybe she can go a year without a similar incident?

T.I.’s Akoo Jeans Ad Has Done Its Job, Now It Can Be Taken Down

Two things remain true when it comes to marketing: 1) sex will always sell and 2) even negative publicity is good publicity. The recent controversy surrounding a sexually suggestive ad for T.I.‘s Akoo Jeans proves both. The billboard incited complaints from Newark’s Mayor Cory Booker and residents because it features a woman with her head pressed against a man’s crotch, her tongue wagging through her lips, one hand pulling on his pocket, and the other hand reaching between his legs to tug on the back of his jeans. He has his hand grabbing the back of her head. So it wasn’t a huge stretch to assume she was about to give him a beej. Some say the ad sexualized black women, but I think a black woman was used because Akoo is an urban clothing company. Plus, the ad isn’t any more sexual than the photos on American Apparel featuring women of all races. The Akoo ad is not racist, and I’m not even sure it’s sexist, but it is definitely in poor taste. No one wants to be met with soft-core porn as they drop the kiddies to school. And now, they won’t be because CBS Outdoor, which owns the billboard space, has decided to take the ad down. But did anyone even know T.I. had a clothing line before this controversy began? No? Well, then, the ad did its job. [Essence.com, The Associated Press] Keep reading »

Naomi Campbell Attacks Again … A Driver This Time!

Ah dang, Naomi Campbell! Just when I thought she had learned her lesson after picking up trash in NYC, she goes and attacks another person. The NYPD is currently on the hunt for Naomi after she allegedly punched and slapped her driver, while sitting in the back seat of the car while he was driving. The driver says he then stopped the car in midtown Manhattan and called 911 on her ass, which caused Naomi to jump out of the car and run away. [DailyRecord.com]

So I could go out on limb for my girl and suggest that she was overcome with grief for Alexander McQueen and stressed about the plight of surviving Haitians and just lost it, but we all know that would be true for any excuse. But really, if I were nine inches taller (I don’t enjoy being around excessively tall women) and worked for Naomi, I’d anticipate a BlackBerry flying at my head or a slap across the face at all times, so I’d never turn my back on her. I’d be ready to duck at any moment. In fact, I’d squat whenever she entered a room. And I’d have it in my contract that she had to double my pay for the day if she tried to inflict pain on me. Just something for you future employees of Miss Campbell to think about. You’re welcome. Keep reading »

Threesome Alert: The Charlie Sheen Trial Is About To Get Juicier

Hold onto your hats, folks, because Charlie Sheen’s domestic abuse trial is about to become a bigger, hotter mess.

After the jump, some bombshells that will supposedly come out during the trial. Keep reading »

Did Tiger Woods Knock Up A Porn Star?

Tiger Woods has two kids. In a parallel universe, he’s got several more. On Monday, adult film star Joslyn James told “Inside Edition” that Tiger got her pregnant in 2007 and 2009. But she never told the golf superstar that she was carrying his child. Elin Nordegren’s pregnancies overlapped with her own, and James “didn’t want to ruin anything,” she says in the provocative interview. There’s not much to ruin now. Read more Keep reading »

It’s Time For Lindsay Lohan To Stage A 12-Step Comeback

Lindsay Lohan just can’t stay out of the news. In the last week, her “she said/she said” dispute with ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson raised eyebrows, she made headlines for failing to appear on the arm of billionaire Richard Lugner at the Vienna Opera Ball (in what was to have been a paid appearance), and she ignited controversy with her Jesus-themed (crown of thorns and all) Purple cover. Each week, it’s something new bizarre. She’s long-since turned into a punch line.

While many Hollywood observers think she’s reached the point of no return, there are still some devoted fans hoping for a career resurrection. Lindsay’s got the talent (see “Mean Girls,” “Bobby,” and “A Prairie Home Companion”), she just needs to make a few life changes and she’ll be back on top. In fact, we’ve put together a 12-step program to help get her started. Pay attention, Lindsay, we just might be saving your career. Now put down the bottle and start reading.

“Biggest Loser” Trainer Sued For Pushing Diet Pills That Don’t Work

Isn’t it kind of messed up when celebs use their fame to push pills that don’t work—or worse, that could be dangerous? That’s just what “Biggest Loser” trainer Jillian Michaels did when she threw her weight (pun!) behind a diet supplement called “Jillian Michaels’ Maximum Strength Calorie Control.” The trainer is now facing a $5 million lawsuit because, surprise, the pills don’t really do anything.

In His Quest To Be “Clever” John Mayer Offends Everyone, Especially Black Women

Yesterday, we reported some off-color remarks John Mayer made about Jessica Simpson in Playboy. Jessica could have taken his comparison of her to “sexual napalm” positively or negatively, depending on how she felt about herself and their relationship. But his musings about black women and use of the N-word weren’t as clever as he hoped, but cemented his status as the biggest jerk with a mic. Let’s dissect what he said and how he tried to apologize, after the jump. Keep reading »
