Supermodel Naomi Campbell is to be dragged into her billionaire boyfriend’s messy divorce case.
Vladimir Doronin’s estranged wife Ekaterina is planning to cite his relationship with Naomi, 41, as the reason for the end of her marriage.
Naomi might be one step closer to marrying the Russian, but sources close to the couple say she is devastated because Vladimir and Ekaterina had been separated for ten years before she started dating him in 2008.

Ekaterina has been married to 49-year-old property mogul Vladimir for 24 years and they have a daughter, Katia, 15. His wife is believed to want a substantial slice of his huge fortune. Ekaterina 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 has left the UK to set up home with Vladimir in Moscow and is said to be taking lessons in Russian. He gave her Van Cleef black earrings two years ago, but has yet to propose. A spokesman for Naomi last night declined to comment.
