Model Naomi Campbell had to testify that she once accepted blood diamonds from former Liberian president Charles Taylor.
The trial in The Hague, where Taylor is accused of trading weapons training for rebels in Sierra Leone for the diamonds. Millions died in Sierra Leone during the civil war.
"I did not want to be here," she said. "I just want to get this over with and get on with my life, this is a big inconvenience for me."
She also said she had never heard of Taylor or Liberia.
During her testimony, while at a benefit for Nelson Mandala, two men came to her hotel room delivering the diamonds. Her explanation?
"I get gifts given to me all the time, at all hours of the night," she told the court. "Sometimes without notes. It is quite normal for me to receive gifts."
Wow! What demented arrogance.
