Former agent Carole White: Naomi Campbell flirted with Charles Taylor

Ex-Liberian President Charles Taylor gave Naomi Campbell diamonds after a 1997 dinner in South Africa, the supermodel's former agent Carole White has told Mr Taylor's war-crimes trial.

She said Mr Taylor and Ms Campbell had been "mildly flirting" during the meal hosted by Nelson Mandela, and that the model had boasted that she had been promised diamonds as a gift from him.

Last week, Ms Campbell testified that she had unexpectedly been presented with a pouch of stones in the middle of the night by two unidentified men, and that she didn't know who the source of the gift was.
