The British beauty has been accused of attacking a photographer (and putting him in the hospital!) while on vacation in Italy with her billionaire beau Mikhail Prokhorov. The photog, Gaetano Di Giovanni, says Campbell scratched and bruised his face after she slapped him and hit him with her handbag. "First she hit with her bag, screaming at me and then she tried to slap me," he detailed to an Italian newspaper, "I managed to avoid her – but her nails still got my eye."

The Washington Post also has an exclusive with Gates, where he says, "I studied the history of racism. I know every incident in the history of racism from slavery to Jim Crow segregation.
