This Just In: “Cara pulled Naomi’s weave, but it didn’t come off,” says a witness. Come inside and get deets on the supermodel showdown between Naomi Campbell and Cara Delevingne during Paris fashion week….all over pop star Rihanna!
While the beautiful people flocked to Paris Fashion Week, the real show happened OFF the catwalk. A report in the New York Post reveals that legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell and it-girl of the moment Cara Delevigne got into a screaming and shoving match – and Cara yanked on Naomi’s weave! Here’s how it all went down….
The wealthy and connected folks headed over to a swanky party for Dasha Zhukova’s Garage Magazine at Paris club Castel on Sunday night. As you can see from the photos above (taken during Jordan Dunn’s Sickle Cell event in 2014), Naomi and Cara are old friends. Or at least we thought they were. The two ladies do share is a love of pop-star Rihanna. And sources say Rihanna was the catalyst for their Spring 2015 fight.
A witness told Page Six, “Naomi accused Cara of ‘disrespecting’ Rihanna and started yelling, before Naomi pushed Cara, who pushed back.” Another witness added, “Cara pulled Naomi’s weave, but it didn’t come off.”
Well shout out to whomever attached Naomi’s unit. Now ya’ll know Naomi’s edges situation…so we don’t know what that wig/weave was hooked to. But her hairstylist deserves an award. #noshade
While Naomi and Cara and Rihanna have been spotted together at previous events (and getting along) the witness said, “Naomi was angry because she felt Cara had said something negative about Rihanna.”
Here’s what another source added,
“It was a noisy and packed party. Naomi was saying all these nonsensical things, she was ranting. There was a messy pushing match. Cara didn’t understand because there’s no problem between her and Rihanna. Cara didn’t want to be involved and was telling Naomi, ‘Get away from me!’ ”
Only one NY Post source took Naomi’s side. “Naomi didn’t do anything wrong. We are talking about a very tiny club in Paris with a very busy table — if someone pushes someone, it’s because there is no space.” SIDE EYE.
After the fight, Na Na kept it moving at Up & Down’s pop-up at Raspoutine, where a spy said, “Everyone was talking about the drama with Cara, but Naomi just smiled angelically.”
Back in Naomi’s younger days, she had a very similar fight with “Dynasty” actress Troy Beyer in the 90s. Gossips says Naomi slammed Troy against a limo outside of the Tribeca Grill (Rob’s restaurant) after she made a snarky comment about Naomi’s then-boyfriend Robert De Niro.
For long time YBFers, this story might sound eerily familiar with all the previous stories of her Blackberry-throwing-attacks on assistants and people she doesn’t like. Bottom line – DON’T come for Naomi or her close friends.
We’ll keep you posted on this story. And you can add this to the list of juicy stories about Naomi and her alleged temper.
UPDATE: Naomi tweeted that it’s all untrue, and Cara RT’d her:
Don’t know where this story has come from about @Caradelevingne and I fighting! It is completely untrue, ignore the rumours XN
