Naomi Campbell Annoys Passengers With Special Treatment

Once a diva, always a diva! Naomi Campbell was back to her old ways while on a flight from London to New York recently. Fellow passengers on her flight became annoyed when learning she was allowed to cut in line at JFK to get through customs faster. But in true New Yorker fashion, people weren’t amused with her antics, and started booing the supermodel.

A source tells the New York Daily News, "An older lady was about to have her passport checked, but she was told to wait so Naomi could go first. It pissed off a lot of people."

However, Campbell's lawyer Marty Singer has defended the star, insisting it is normal procedure for any celebrity to be escorted through customs first - to avoid unwelcome attention.

Singer says, "She was not treated any differently than any other high-profile individual. American Airlines offered to escort her. She did not ask for it. It's done for security reasons, so high-profile passengers aren't besieged by people."

A spokesperson for American Airlines has refused to comment on the incident.

We totally understand that airports would do that for mega celebrities, but we’ve seen plenty of celebrities wait in line just like everybody else! And plus, Naomi isn’t exactly an A-lister at the moment, so we’re sure she would have been just fine waiting.
