Naomi Campbell nuts over brazilian
By Rav Singh
CATWALK diva NAOMI CAMPBELL is nuts for a Brazilian businessman — and has sparked rumours that they have secretly got engaged.
I can reveal that the supermodel has completely fallen for wealthy Marcus Elias and has been flashing the giant diamond ring he bought her.
They only met TWO WEEKS AGO at a party for fashion mag Vogue in Sao Paolo, after Naomi arrived in South America for the Bahia Carnival celebrations.
Marcus, 49, arrived with stunning local actress and model Ildi Silva, 24. But he soon switched his attentions to Naomi, 37, and they ended the evening cuddling up together.
A party guest told me: "They were all over each other and looked perfectly suited. Now Naomi's wearing a sparkling diamond ring and everyone is wondering if they've had a whirlwind engagement."
Marcus then whisked Naomi by private jet to the beautiful coastal resort of Trancoso. And Naomi later told of her love for balding Marcus at an A-list party hosted by Brazilian minister of culture Gilberto Gil in Salvador.
The Streatham beauty, renowned for her fiery temperament, giggled: "Marcus and I are so happy together."
And she even told a friend: "I want to have a Brazilian baby this year!"
The pair enjoyed a romantic dinner together at Gero restaurant in Sao Paolo before Naomi jetted back to the UK for London Fashion Week.
Marcus, owner of Latin America Equity Partners, remained tight-lipped about his relationship with Naomi.
Asked about their romance, he said: "I don't know what you are talking about. It's not elegant to speak about such things. That was my upbringing—Mum told me not to speak on such matters."
Naomi has been linked with a string of high-profile men, including F1 boss FLAVIO BRIATORE, ROBERT DE NIRO, P DIDDY and U2 bass player ADAM CLAYTON.
A pal said: "Naomi is in love with Marcus and everything Brazilian."
