Naomi Celebrates 40th Birthday With Subpoena?

21May10

Naomi Campbell will surely put on a brave smile tomorrow when her billionaire boyfriend, Vlad Doronin, throws her a lavish 40th birthday party at the Hotel du Cap with every celebrity from the Cannes Film Festival. But the excitable supermodel must be worried.

Prosecutors of former Liberian President Charles Taylor, on trial at The Hague for war crimes, have asked the judges to subpoena Campbell to testify about “blood diamonds” she allegedly received from the warlord in the middle of one night in 1997.

Taylor is on trial for inciting a bloody rebellion in neighboring Sierra Leone. Prosecutors say Taylor was in South Africa to buy weapons for the rebels with the diamonds.

When Oprah Winfrey asked Campbell about the diamonds during an appearance on her show earlier this month, Naomi said, “I don’t want to be involved in this man’s case — he has done some terrible things and I don’t want to put my family in danger.”
