BETHLEHEM, Palestinian Territories — British super model Naomi Campbell celebrated her 42nd birthday in the Holy Land on Tuesday after a late-night arrival in Tel Aviv, press reports and an AFP correspondent said.
On Tuesday morning, Campbell and her entourage paid a brief visit to the Church of the Nativity in the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, the traditional birthplace of Jesus Christ, the correspondent said.
They then stopped off for lunch in the nearby Casa Nova Palace hotel, the correspondent said.
Campbell arrived late on Monday, touching down in a private jet at Ben Gurion airport with her billionaire boy friend Vladislav Doronin and a group of around 15 close friends and six bodyguards, Israel's top-selling Yediot Aharonot daily reported.
She drove straight to Jerusalem for a night tour of the Wailing Wall and the adjacent Western Wall tunnels, after which the party retired to the city's prestigious King David hotel, the paper said.
It was not immediately clear how long the London-born model would stay in the region.
