Campbell's ex-agent told a 'pack of lies'

Naomi Campbell's former agent has been accused of telling a "complete pack of lies" about a gift to the supermodel of alleged "blood diamonds". Testifying at The Hague, Carole White said Ms Campbell was given the stones by the former Liberian president, Charles Taylor. Ms White said Ms Campbell knew she was to receive the diamonds. But Mr Taylor's defence team suggested she invented her story to support a $600,000 (£375,935) legal dispute with Ms Campbell over alleged unpaid royalties from a perfume deal. Mr Taylor's defence lawyer, Courtenay Griffiths, said: "Quite frankly, Ms White, I suggest that your account is a complete pack of lies." Ms White repeatedly denied making up her account of what happened at a party hosted by Nelson Mandela in Pretoria, South Africa, in 1997.
