Naomi Campbell has been sentenced to six months in prison by a Sicilian court for scratching a paparazzo’s eye back in 2009.
According to reports, the supermodel was given the sentence this week after photographer, Gaetano Di Giovanni, was taking photos of her stepping off of a boat with her then-boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin.
While the two were doing some sight-seeing through the streets of the Sicilian town, she allegedly hit the paparazzi member with her purse, which ended up scratching his eye. He reportedly had to seek medical attention for the following three days.
Despite the photographer withdrawing the charges, the court decided to move forward with the trail in the public interest due to “the intensity of the charges.”
E! Online reports the statement made by her lawyer, who vows to appeal her 6-month sentencing:
“We are appealing the ruling surrounding the 2009 incident,” attorney Guido Carlo Alleva said in a statement obtained by E! News. “Due to the ongoing legal process, we cannot discuss the matter further at this time.”
