'Mobile Device' Redefined

NOON -- Diamonds, it seems, aren't just a girl's best friend – they can also be used to keep staff in line. Supermodel Naomi Campbell is back in court today, accused of lobbing her "jewel-encrusted BlackBerry" at her housekeeper's head.

The 35-year old model is alleged to have thrown her fancy version of the popular communications device at the help after accusing her of stealing a pair of jeans, reports the Times of London. Campbell could face up to seven years in the clink if convicted of the attack.

And, as it turns out, this isn't the first time Campbell's used a cellphone as a weapon. In 2000, she pleaded guilty to assaulting an assistant with her mobile phone and was sued by another assistant for the same thing in 2003.

As for that bling-laden BlackBerry? Tackier than a French kiss from Paris Hilton. — Dan Jones, Site Editor, Unstrung
