Naomi Campbell

Former model Naomi Campbell's billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, is going to make sure she celebrates her upcoming 40th birthday with a bang. He's throwing a lavish party on the French Riviera, according to gossip reports. Naomi turns 40 on May 22nd, at the end of the Cannes Film Festival, and Vladimir plans a star-studded bash on a private yacht. A source tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "Naomi's birthday is going to be as lavish as other recent big celebrity 40th birthdays, such as Sean Combs, Jay-Z. ... Invites are already being sent out and people are expected to jet in from New York, London and Moscow. "Vladimir is planning and paying for the whole event, which is slated for May 22 in or near Cannes. There will be a series of events for Naomi leading up to the big party at a secret location, which is believed to be on a super-yacht."

Editors Note: I have never liked Naomi. She was always such a bitch when I photographed her years ago. She has never been a nice person and it seems she has been given everything in life. Just a thought....
