Naomi Campbell's former business agent has told a war crimes court the fashion model flirted with former Liberian President Charles Taylor at a 1997 dinner and he arranged to send her a gift of uncut diamonds.


Carole White's testimony contradicts the British model's statements at the Sierra Leone Special Tribunal.


Campbell downplayed her contact with Taylor, saying she received an unexpected gift of "dirty looking" pebbles the night after the dinner. She told judges Friday she did not initially realize they were diamonds or who sent them.


Prosecutors say White's testimony Monday could help prove Taylor traded guns for uncut diamonds with rebels in neighboring Sierra Leone during its 1992-2002 civil war.


Taylor says he's innocent of war crimes.
