In 2000 she was arrested for striking her assistant with a mobile phone and forced to do community service. In 2008 she attacked a police officer at Heathrow airport over a lost bag. The award-winning fashion icon was banned from travelling with British Airways and given a second round of community service for her outburst.
The super-model has said that her volatile temper could have something to do with being abandoned by her father before she was born.
Campbell describes how, before overcoming her drug addiction in 1999, she lost many friends, had no motivation to work and felt emotionally and physically drained. Eventually she knew she had to face herself and deal with the consequences of her actions.
The model says that she has no regrets about what she did and believes she is finally moving on from the “baggage” of the past.
“It’s work in progress. I’ve apologised, accepted responsibility, I did my community service,” she told interviewers.
Campbell has since developed a close relationship with Nelson Mandella, describing him as a huge inspiration and a person to go to when she needs help.
