Looks like supermodel Naomi Campbell (and her super temper!) has a new weapon! 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.”

“Media reports circulating that Naomi Campbell attacked a photographer in Lipari, Sicily are completely untrue,” her rep said. “The photographer was seen following Naomi Campbell on a small boat, taking photographs, the day after the alleged incident.”
