Naomi Campbell (born London, 22 May 1970) is an English model. Scouted at the age of 15, she established herself among the top three most recognizable and in-demand models of the late 1980s and early 1990s,[3] and she was one of six models of her generation declared “supermodels” by the fashion world.[4] Her personal life is widely reported, particularly her relationships with prominent men—including boxer Mike Tyson, Badr Jafar and actor Robert De Niro[5]—and several highly-publicised convictions for assault.[6]

Early life

Campbell was born in Streatham, South London, the daughter of Jamaican-born dancer Valerie Morris.[7] In accordance with her mother’s wishes, Campbell has never met her father,[8] who abandoned her mother when she was four months pregnant,[7] and who went unnamed on her birth certificate.[8] She took on the surname Campbell from her mother’s second marriage.[7] Her half-brother, Pierre, was born in 1986.[9] Campbell is of Afro-Jamaican descent, as well as of Chinese Jamaican ancestry through her paternal grandmother, who carried the family name Ming.[7]

During her early years, Campbell lived in Rome, where her mother worked as a modern dancer.[5] Following their return to London, she was left in the care of her maternal grandmother, Ruby, while her mother travelled across Europe with the dance troupe Fantastica.[9] At five years old, Campbell was enrolled at the Barbara Speake Stage School,[9] and at the age of ten, she was accepted into the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, where she studied ballet.[7]
