Naomi Campbell puts trial behind her to focus on charity.

NAOMI CAMPBELL is determined to put behind her the "negativity" of her time on the stand at The Hague War Crimes trial, so that she can devote her energy to charity work.

"I am sensitive but I don't want to buy into negativity, and I'm not going to buy into it," Campbell said on Sky News.

In August, Campbell was forced to testify at the trial of Charles Taylor after it emerged the former Liberian ruler had given the Streatham-born model 'blood' diamonds.

"So as far as I was concerned, I was used as a scapegoat. For me, buying into it would be stopping what I'm doing, which is not me, because then I wouldn't be able to help the people that I do help. And that's what counts to me today."

Campbell was at the forefront of celebrity fund raising after the Haiti earthquake and now she is drumming up support for victims of the Pakistan floods.

"We're going on a worldwide tour, beginning in London," she said.

"Then Milan, Paris, Moscow and Shanghai. All proceeds go to Fashion for Relief, supporting Pakistan flood victims."
