"I have worked very hard on correcting my previous wrongdoings and I will not be held hostage to my past. I try to treat everyone with respect and I am pleased the driver has apologized. I would like to put the last few days behind me and move on." —Supermodel Naomi Campbell, speaking publicly for the first time since she was accused of assaulting her New York City cab driver on Tuesday. Driver Miodrag Mejdina said earlier today that he was at fault for the incident and that he "apologized" to Campbell for "overreacting," an 180 degree turn from his original claim that Campbell had slapped and hit him before fleeing the vehicle.
