Naomi Campbell Slams Witchcraft Rumors

January 23rd, 2007 // 2 Comments

Calling Rush & Molloy directly at New York Daily News, Naomi Campbell hoped to clear up any rumors that she might be involved in Brazil’s African-based religion, Candomblé. According to Campbell, the talk of witchcraft started because she attended an event that was being held for a Candomblé priest, Tuca Franchini. From Rush & Molloy:

“I’m Church of England, Protestant. I was christened that,” Campbell told us. “I went to a party for a guy whose birthday it was [Candomblé priest Tuca Franchini].

I don’t discriminate against what religion people have. That’s what he does, but it doesn’t mean I have to be involved in it.”

Additionally, Franchini has called me to dissipate any possible rumors that he’s a follower of the Naomi Campbell School of Violent Acts. Just kidding! But I wish someone would start calling me to clear up rumors. I mean, I’ve been on the news now. I’m ready for it.

  1. Oh c’mon.

    Candomblé is so popular in Brazil. And it’s not a evil thing (can be, but…) I don’t know why you americans care so much about that.

    When Gisele and Leo di Caprio went in Xingu nobody talked about anything, but about this? Afffff

    I really like this site, but ending every one of your posts with some sad poor-me joke about how you wish you were that famous, or whatever, is getting old. It doesn’t sound self-depracating or tongue-in-cheek. Just tired.
