NAOMI IN COURT: Naomi Campbell is no stranger to court appearances, but according to British press reports she seems to be losing her appetite for litigation. London’s Evening Standard said Monday that Campbell has discontinued her latest court case in London, in which she accused her former personal assistant, Vanessa Frisbee, of selling a story about her to the News of the World tabloid in 2000. According to the reports, officials at London’s High Court ordered Campbell to pay 90 percent of Frisbee’s legal costs after she abandoned the case, in addition to the costs she will pay to her own legal team. The case is the latest twist in Campbell’s mixed history with the British legal system. In 2004, she won a case against London’s Daily Mirror, after the High Court ruled the tabloid invaded her privacy by publishing pictures of her attending Narcotics Anonymous. In 2008, she was ordered to perform community service after pleading guilty to six offenses — including assaulting a police officer — on a British Airways flight at London’s Heathrow Airport earlier that year.
