The Daily Beast: Stars Who Perform for Dictators

6 of 10

Naomi Campbell and Charles Taylor

British supermodel Naomi Campbell is famous for assaulting anyone who gets in her way, from friends and assistants to Heathrow Airport police. But one of her brushes with the law involved something much more sinister. After a dinner at the home of former South African President Nelson Mandela, she reportedly told people that Liberian dictator Charles Taylor had given her a huge diamond. Taylor was later brought to trial on war-crimes charges, and accused of using "blood diamonds" to buy weapons. Campbell denied the accusations angrily, refusing to answer questions and storming out of an interview about it. She testified at Charles Taylor's trial in 2010, though her involvement in the diamond controversy, has never been fully uncovered.
