The country of Brazil has rejected Naomi Campbell’s blood.

Trying to do some good, the temperamental supermodel turned up at the HemoRio medical center to participate in a blood drive to fight a dengue fever epidemic, but officials turned her away.

No, it wasn’t anything personal — just medical. Naomi had surgery in February to remove a cyst; thus, she needs to wait longer before donating blood.


Have no fear though — the 37-year-old, who was arrested two weeks ago for assaulting a police officer in an airport, is still feeling the love in Brazil. She often visits the country and Rio Mayor Cesar Maia has invited her to be a goodwill ambassador for the city.
