Speaking out for the first time since she was accused of bashing her driver, Naomi Campbell insisted Thursday that she treats "everyone with respect.
"I have worked very hard on correcting my previous wrongdoings and I will not be held hostage to my past
," Campbell, the short-fused supermodel with a history of hitting the help, said in a statement.
Campbell broke her silence after the driver, Miodrag Mejdina
, apologized for calling the cops on her.
"I am pleased the driver has apologized
," Campbell wrote. "I would like to put the last few days behind me and move on.
Campbell did not say whether she was guilty of "unacceptable behavior
," only that she'd been accused.
Her statement came a couple hours after Miodrag's lawyer issued a statement in which the driver blamed himself for the "misunderstanding."
"I had an argument with Naomi Campbell. I got angry and overreacted
," Mejdina wrote. "I regret involving the police. This whole thing has been blown out of proportion and I apologize to Ms. Campbell for causing that to happen
Mejdina called 911 on Tuesday and told cops the supermodel had whacked him while he was driving in Midtown
and then fled on foot.
He withdrew the complaint the same day and cops halted their hunt for the temperamental catwalker - who has two previous convictions for similar incidents
