Inside Naomi Campbell’s love life from broken engagement to Liam Payne ‘romance’

Naomi Campbell's latest announcement was a joyous one – the legendary supermodel and fashionista has given birth to a baby girl, becoming a mum for the first time.

She wrote: “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother, So honoured to have this gentle soul in my life there are no words to describe the lifelong bond that I now share with you my angel.

"There is no greater love.”

The supermodel first rose to fame at the age of 15 when she quickly became one of the most well-known faces of the 80s and 90s.

With an album under her belt, cinema credits and a whole list of admirable charity efforts, Naomi has gone far beyond the early days of her career.

The Hollywood beauty has not only make herself a household name, but has also held the fashion industry accountable for its treatment of women of colour.

Naomi has gone from strength to strength in her career and utilized her fame to try and support people around the world that do not have the same platform as her own.

Throughout her spectacular career, Naomi has enjoyed a number of high-profile relationships, dating some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

Below, we take a look at Naomi's romantic history – and some of the lucky A-listers who managed to woo her.

Adam Clayton

When asked in an interview if there was anything he desired but did not have, U2 bassist Adam Clayton responded: "A date with Naomi Campbell”.

The pair met in February of 1993 and were soon engaged to be wed.

Sadly for Adam, it wasn’t meant to be and the couple soon separated the following year.

Leonardo Di Caprio

A year after her separation from Clayton, Naomi would date Leonardo Di Caprio for a short while but again, things fell apart.

Though things didn't work out romantically between Leonardo and Naomi, the pair have enjoyed a life-long friendship, even going on holiday together.

More recently, back in 2015, the Catch Me If You Can star photobombed a snap of Naomi with musician 50 Cent.

Flavio Briatore

In 1998 the Formula One racing head Flavio Briatore entered into a long-term relationship with Naomi.

Their romance spanned five years until 2003 when Naomi broke off the relationship soon after the pair had gotten engaged.

“I’m not going to be a trophy," Naomi told Marie Claire after their breakup.

"If you expect me to be in the kitchen cooking breakfast in high heels, looking as though I just stepped out of a fashion magazine, it’s not going to happen.”

Vladislav Doronin

2008 saw the arrival of Russian businessman Vladislav Doronin, best known for his real estate developments and the OKO Tower in Russia.

Naomi and Vladislav would remain together until 2013, where the couple parted ways.

The supermodel’s search for love has also seen her dating such faces as the actor Robert De Niro, Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel, Rapper Sean Combs (better known as P. Diddy to some) and American singer-songwriter Usher.

Liam Payne

Most recently in 2019, Campbell was said to be dating the One Direction boy band member Liam Payne.

While the pair reportedly managed to keep things ‘fun’ and out of the spotlight while together rumours had begun flying about the pair after flirty comments on each others' Instagram pages began to catch people's attention.

Naomi allegedly had made it clear to Liam early on that she wasn’t looking for anything serious, encouraging him to not get ‘too clingy’.

The pair reportedly lasted only four months but with clear boundaries set in place, the split was amicable.

A source at the Mirror said: "Liam and Naomi had a lot of fun together, they got on well and had a laugh. But it just wasn’t meant to be.

"They are going to stay friends – there are no hard feelings with either of them."


Naomi’s most recent ex-partner was the three-time Brit nominee, British grime MC, Skepta.

Skepta said this about Naomi: “Naomi Campbell is my favourite cover girl. She broke down boundaries by doing those early Vogue covers.”

The relationship between the pair reportedly burned out after Naomi learned that another woman would be having Skepta’s child, River.

Now, with the arrival of her daughter, it seems that Naomi has finally settled on who her true love is meant to be.
