As Naomi Campbell becomes a mom of 50, we look back at the supermodel’s scorching love life – from pop stars and actors to business tycoons and oil magnates …
2019: Liam Payne
Naomi was linked to One Direction star Liam Payne, 23 years her junior, following her breakup from Skepta and his breakup from Cheryl.
They would have enjoyed a few dates, but it was short lived in the end.
It started with a seemingly harmless flirtation on Instagram, liking and commenting on each other’s steamy posts.
Liam described her as ‘perfection in a person’, labeling him as ‘a beautiful soul’. They were subsequently spotted performing musician Davido’s concert at The O2 in London.
There were reports that Liam was bragging about the couple’s “ stunning ” sex, but when Naomi was outright asked about the rendezvous on The Jonathan Ross Show, she said the rumors were “ humorous. ” Every romance seemed to end shortly after.

Their raunchy cover of GQ magazine, only in their underwear, drove fans wild.
But the rendezvous of rapper Skepta and Naomi soon seemed finished and dusted.
About the shoot Naomi said afterwards: ‘We actually did that shoot on our own, it was not for any publication, and when I saw the photos, I thought:’ no, no, no, we have to come out …
So I started making some calls. It wasn’t like I was going to wait months for it to come out – it either has to come out in the next few or it won’t come out at all. ‘
It did come true, with the duo participating in a joint interview at the time and playing coy about any romance. To this day it’s still unclear, but Skepta seemingly mentioned Naomi on one of his tracks in 2020. They are thought to be still close.

2017: Louis C. Camilleri
In 2017, it was alleged that Naomi was dating Egyptian multi-millionaire Louis C. Camilleri, who was 66 at the time.
The supermodel would enjoy a string of London dinners with the businessman, which was worth over £ 150 million.
Naomi reportedly met Louis through their shared love of Formula 1, as they attended the same races and reportedly met and bonded at the events.

2016: Hassan Jameel
In July 2016, Naomi looked cozy with billionaire businessman Hassan Jameel when they attended the British Summer Time Festival in London together – although their romance was never confirmed.
In 2017, the supermodel was alleged to have had a falling out with singer Rihanna after she was spotted opening a steamy show with Hassan, 32, in Ibiza.
The Sun reported at the time that Naomi was unhappy that the singer and Hassan, who split in early 2020, had fallen so hard – because she hates feeling “ second best. ”

However, their relationship started and ended in 2008.

2007: Gerard Butler
It was rumored that Naomi and the Scots action star were an item in 2007 when they were seen together several times.
Ostensibly a friendly ex to many, Naomi has since been seen hanging out with him at events, despite their alleged romance fading away.

2005-2006: Badr Jafar
Naomi and oil heir Badr Jafar were reportedly a couple for ten months.
Apparently, for Naomi’s 35th birthday, he rented eight floors of the Burj al Arab hotel in Dubai to throw her a £ 1 million party. He himself has an estimated worth of £ 2 billion.

2002: P Diddy
It’s still unclear how romantic Naomi and music star P Diddy were, but they were linked in 2002.
Since then they have been very good friends and are thought to regard each other more as siblings.

1998-2002: Flavio Briatore
Flavio Briatore – Benetton’s boss – worked at Naomi from 1998 until they split up in 2002.
The Italian – who is 21 years older than Naomi and is worth £ 258 million – said after their split: ‘She’s great, but better as a boyfriend than a girlfriend!’
Naomi later said to Marie Claire, “I’m not going to be a trophy. If you expect me to eat breakfast in high heels in the kitchen looking like I just got off a fashion magazine, it’s not going to happen. ‘

1995: Leonardo Dicaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio was known for a revolving door of romances, a penchant for models, and seemingly uninterested in settling down, Leonardo DiCaprio may have been a kindred spirit to Naomi when they linked up in 1995.
However, the couple’s dalliance was fleeting. They turned out to have remained pally ever since and can be seen chatting at events on many occasions ever since.

1993-1994: Adam Clayton
Although she has never been married, Naomi was previously engaged to U2 bassist Adam Clayton after getting together in 1993 and despite their 1994 split, the stunner has always spoken affectionately about the musician.
In a 2015 interview with the Irish Independent, she mused, ‘I’m friends with the whole thing [of U2]. The whole band was great. Their children are all grown up.
‘It’s nice to know people for so long and still be in a relationship … I only have very positive things to say about him. I am very proud of Adam. ‘

1992: Robert De Niro
In the early 1990s, Naomi was briefly associated with Hollywood star Robert De Niro.
But when she broached her then-dating life, she told WSJ, “ For me, privacy is important to know each other, and I’m always worried my job won’t allow it.
‘But I have manners. I learned that from Robert De Niro. Being alone doesn’t mean you are lonely. I don’t have time to get bored, and I don’t have time to be lonely. ‘
