Naomi Campbell: I'm "Never Gonna Get Away" From That Phone-Throwing Incident

Naomi Campbell in Elle Magazine February 2013

Despite championing charities the world over, Naomi Campbell says she'll never quite escape her checkered past.

In an interview featured in the February issue of Elle, Campbell — referring specifically to the 2007 case in which she pleaded guilty to throwing a phone at her personal assistant — said, "I'm never gonna get away from it. It's part of my history. I was remorseful and regretful. I've served. I did that time. And I never want to be in that position again."

But starring in Oxygen's new reality series The Face, which debuts next month, may help change how she's viewed.

"The first time I saw her cry in an elimination I thought, 'She's in this,'" said Oxygen executive Rod Aissa. "The public will see the Naomi that her friends know. That doesn't come across in a picture, but it does come across on television."

Still, the pictures of Campbell in Elle are worth a look. A selection of them here in the gallery.
