Naomi Campbell arrives in India to celebrate boyfriend's birthday

Jodhpur: British supermodel Naomi Campbell has arrived in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, to celebrate the birthday of her Russian billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin, who turns 50 on November 7.

Around 80 celebrities are expected to attend the four-day gala, which will take place at different locations.

The couple, who have been dating since 2008, have zeroed in on the Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur for the pre-birthday bash on November 06, which will see the attendance of the leading celebrities from Hollywood as well as the modelling world.

According to media reports, the catwalk queen has splurged 500,000 dollars to have Diana Ross perform at her boyfriend's birthday bash, which will take place at the lavish Umaid Bhawan Palace.

She has reportedly sent e-mail invitations to all the guests, which has a picture of Doronin posing underwater in true James Bond style.

Campbell has also planned an elephant polo match in the area, which has not gone down too well with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

The organisation has planned to approach the Animal Welfare Board of India and Rajasthan Wildlife Department to send Campbell a legal notice, asking her not to violate India's animal cruelty laws.

Though elephant polo is not illegal in India, organisers of such events were forced to cancel the matches in wake of rising opposition from animal activities.

In 2010, Doronin threw a grand party for his girlfriend on the French Riviera, flying in the Black Eyed Peas and Grace Jones.

The guest list included Donatella Versace, Kate Moss, Giorgio Armani, Jennifer Lopez, among others.
