She regards record producers Quincy Jones and Chris Blackwell as father figures. Nelson Mandela once referred to her as his honorary granddaughter. Naomi has a half-brother named Pierre, born in 1985. She belongs to Jamaican descent as well as of Chinese-Jamaican ancestry.
She spent her early childhood in Rome where her mother used to work as a modern dancer. After that, she returned to London and she was left in the care of relatives and her mother traveled across Europe with dance troupe Fantastica.
Talking about her education history, she attended the Barbara Speake Stage School and she also attended The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts at the age of 10 and studied ballet.
She began her carer at the age of seven after she appeared in a music video for Bob Marley’s song ‘Is This Love’. Then, she was featured in Culture Club’s music video for ‘I’ll Tumble 4 Ya’.
One day, while she was shopping in a district mall, the head of the Synchro Model Agency, Beth Boldt, approached her and was offered a deal and then her career took off. She appeared in the cover of ‘British Vogue’ in December 1987 and became the first black cover model since 1966. Also, she became the first black cover girl of ‘French Vogue’ in August 1988.

She pleaded guilty for assaulting her former housekeeper in January 2007 who accused the model of throwing a personal organizer at her the past year. After a year, she was charged with assaulting two police officials and she was sentenced to 200 hours of community service and also fined 2,300 pounds and was banned for life from British Airways. Also, she was sentenced to six months probation after she pleaded guilty to assaulting a paparazzo photographer in 2009.
