Naomi Campbell also had a rift with former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, who publicly branded the model as a "massive cow" and a "bitch" in 2000.
The pair apparently also ended their feud not long ago.In February 2001 pictures were published in the Daily Mirror newspaper showing Naomi Campbell leaving a Narcotics Anonymous meeting in London. In March of 2002 Campbell sued the paper citing a breach of confidentiality, as she was receiving treatment for drug addiction at the time.
The Mirror claimed that the pictures were in the public interest as Naomi Campbell had denied having a drug problem publicly and had, up to that point, not been known or proved to be a drug addict. The High Court ruled in Campbell's favour and the Mirror was ordered to pay Ã‚Â£3,500 in damages (although legal costs were thought to be around (Ã‚Â£500,000.)
In October of 2002, the Mirror won an Appeal Court ruling that the photographs were indeed in the public interest. Naomi Campbell was ordered to pay the costs of the Mirror's legal fees, a cost of around Ã‚Â£350,000.
However, in May of 2004, the Law Lords overturned the Appeal Court ruling by a 3 to 2 majority, which reinstated the High Court's original decision, and Naomi Campbell was reawarded Ã‚Â£3,500 and the Ã‚Â£350,000 legal costs.
The Mirror's legal cost is thought to be over Ã‚Â£1,000,000. The case is also thought to be a landmark in the rights of celebrities to privacy. Mirror editor Piers Morgan said at the time "This is a very good day for lying drug-abusing prima donnas who want to have their cake with the media, and the right to then shamelessly guzzle it with their Cristal champagne. Five senior judges found for the Mirror throughout the various hearings in this case, four for Naomi Campbell. Yet she wins.
If ever there was a less deserving case for creating what is effectively a back door privacy law it would be Ms Naomi Campbell, but that's showbiz."
