Naomi Campbell is to be dragged into Vladimir Doronin’s messy divorce case.
Billionaire Vladimir Doronin’s estranged wife Ekaterina is planning to cite his relationship with Naomi Campbell as the reason for the end of her marriage.
Supermodel Naomi Campbell, 41, might be one step closer to marrying the Russian, but sources close to the couple say she is devastated because Vladimir and Ekaterina Doronin had been separated for ten years before she started dating him in 2008.
Vladimir Doronin, 49, had a 7-year long relationship with another woman before he met Naomi Campbell.
“Naomi is pleased that Ekaterina has finally agreed to give Vladimir a divorce, but she is upset she is planning on blaming her for the marriage breakdown. She is no homewrecker,” says a friend.
“The truth is that Vladimir had been separated from her for a very long time when he and Naomi got together.”

Ekaterina Doronin has been married to property mogul Vladimir for 24 years and they have a daughter, Katia, 15. She is believed to want a substantial slice of his huge fortune.
Ekaterina Doronin has said of her husband’s romance: “It’s a ridiculous affair. Vladimir is married to me and we are still a couple. Naomi is deluding herself if she thinks she can take my husband.”
Naomi Campbell, who is the face of Vladimir Doronin’s property company, started dating the tycoon – dubbed the Russian Donald Trump – after meeting him at the Cannes Film Festival.
“Vladimir and Naomi are very much in love and are happy together,” says a friend.
“But this is going to cause them both a fair amount of stress. It’s ridiculous that Naomi is being dragged into this.”

Once boasted of being a future Bond girl, but Ana Araujo has had quite a fall from grace since she parted from Rolling Stone rocker Ronnie Wood.
During their two-year romance, which ended last October, the 30-year-old Brazilian was seen at the very best showbusiness soirees. But now she is working as a waitress in Holland Park, West London.
“It’s a case of how the mighty have fallen,” says an associate. Ana has told pals she wants to find another wealthy bachelor.
Kim Kardashian’s claims that there is nothing between her and Kanye West were blown out of the water today when Amber, the rapper’s ex-girlfriend, said his affair with the reality TV star led to their split.
Amber, 28, also claimed that Kim Kardashian was seeing NFL star Reggie Bush at the same time as she was seeing Kanye West – who was in a serious relationship with Amber at the time.
In an interview with Star magazine, Amber said Kim Kardashian, 31, was one of the main reasons she and Kanye West, 34, broke up.
Amber said: “She’s a homewrecker! They were both cheating. They were both cheating on me and Reggie with each other.”
Amber also said that Kim Kardashian instigated the affair by sending sexy pictures of herself to him as well as calling and texting him.
“She was sending pictures, and I was like, <<Kim, just stop. Don’t be that person>.”

Amber said she also emailed Kim Kardashian asking her for an explanation but was disappointed not to get a reply.
Amber said: “I thought at least she’d be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded.
“It’s very important that us women stick together and we don’t f**k each other over like that.”
Amber does thank Kim Kardashian for helping her find true love in the arms of rapper Wiz Khalifa, 24.
Amber explained: “I want to thank her. Because if she was never a homewrecker, then I never would have met Wiz, and I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now.”
Amber’s claim comes a few weeks after Kim Kardashian and Kayne West were spotted together at a party in New York and Kayne was “all over” her – just a month after she filed from divorce from husband Kris Humphries.
In November, she hinted that the pair may have at one time been more than friends when asked on the Wendy Williams Show if Kim and Kanye.
“I mean, Come on, like, you know,” she laughed. “Come on! We’ll keep it cute.”

A source told The New York Daily News: “Kanye was eating Kim up like she was a piece of cake. He was all over her – caressing her head, touching her waist.
“I think he was dying to kiss her, but there were too many people in the room.”

“There is nothing going on romantically,” the insider said.
“Kanye and Kim are just friends and have been forever.”
