Who is Naomi Campbell’s mum Valerie Morris-Campbell?
Valarie was born in December 1951 and turned 69 in 2020.
Naomi never met her dad as he abandoned her mother when she was four months pregnant and went unnamed on her birth certificate.
When Naomi was young she spent her early years in Rome where Valerie worked as a modern dancer.
On their return to London, Naomi lived with relatives while her mother travelled across Europe with the dance troupe Fantastica
How is Valerie related to Richard Blackwood?
Valerie was once actor Richard Blackwood’s stepmum.
It was after she married his dad Cliff in the 1980s – at the time, Richard was 10 and Naomi was 12.
Their parents later divorced and, in an interview with The Guardian in 2000, Richard said: “We were closer when we were younger.
“She’s got her life to lead, and I have my own.
“Our parents were together for only seven years.
“But we speak from time to time. Naomi’s good people.”
