Another personal assistant has come out of the woodwork and is accusing Naomi Campbell of verbal, physical and emotional attacks. From the Superficial, the assistant, from Fort Lauderdale is seeking unspecified damages for:

"assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, reckless infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment." The suit claims Campbell struck her in the face with her Blackberry, slammed her against a wall, and slapped her repeatedly across the face because a piece of her luggage got left behind during a trip to Brazil. Additionally, Campbell threw a cell phone at her face during a subsequent outburst at the model's New York apartment. Another charge claims Campbell got pissed during an April 2005 photoshoot in Morocco over some forgotten clothing and left her assistant stranded in Morocco without money, tore up her passport and threw it into the swimming pool, and left her to pay the hotel bill. Lastly, at Campbell's Park Avenue home she ripped a sweater her assistant was wearing "off her neck" and accused her of stealing it."

Wow. Ripping up a passport? We all know about the cell phone, and how it's Naomi's favorite weapon, but stranding her assistant in a foreign country with no money? Jesus. That's a new level of psychoticness.
