After you read that headline, click play below to get the full effect of Naomi’s vengeance!
Naomi Campbell’s ex-protégée, Zi Li from The Face, was dropped by her agency, MIX Model Management NYC, and most figured it was because she was rubbing her nipples all over Naomi’s ex-piece Vladimir Doronin. But MIX’s president tells Page Six that they dumped Zi Lin because she was going back to China and they didn’t dump her ass for personal reasons at all. Yes, MIX’s president probably said that while Naomi held a BlackBerry to his throat, but we’ll never know.
A source is telling Page Six that Naomi did have something to do with Zi Lin getting dropped by MIX and she’s not done there. The source says that Naomi is trying to get Zi Lin blacklisted from the entire modeling agency and has asked her agents in China to show her the exit door. The source said this
“Naomi has been calling colleagues in the industry to try and stop Luo’s career. She is trying to take this woman out for no reason other than dating her ex-boyfriend. Luo was fired by her management firm, and her Chinese agent has been asked to drop her. Naomi is trying to wreck her career. She has a lot of power in the modeling world.”
However, a different source says that Naomi could give a hell about Zi Lin getting with her leftovers.
Apparently, Vladimir does think Naomi’s trying to ruin his new piece’s career and he’s doing everything he can to protect her. Some source close to Vladimir tells The Daily Mail:
“It’s really sad that Naomi can’t leave Vlad alone since he just wants to get on with his life with Luo in peace. She’s had a very successful career so far and deserves better than being bullied by Naomi. At this point, what he cares about is protecting Luo and helping to undo the damage Naomi has cruelly tried to inflict on her.”
Zi Lin screwed with the wrong supermodel. At this point, she’ll be lucky if she gets a job walking a makeshift catwalk (aka a dozen folding tables lined up) in a Rainbow fashion show in the parking lot of a strip mall in Reseda, CA. (Actually, that sounds kind of glamorous.) Zi Lin should tell Vlad that if he really wants to protect her, he’ll divorce his wife, marry her without a prenup and then get NASA to build her a BlackBerry-proof pod for her to walk in. It’s the only way!
Here’s Naomi shooting The Face UK with Erin O’Connor and Caroline Winberg in Paris today.
