Supermodel and “Empire” star Naomi Campbell is throwing her 45th birthday party this weekend at a private château in the South of France in a glamorous continuation of the Cannes Film Festival celebrations.
Campbell has rented a sprawling château near Cannes for Saturday night’s lavish bash. She’s been planning the party with electric race-car team owner Bert Hedaya — a wealthy scion who we are told is Naomi’s current boyfriend — and art dealer Joe Nahmad, sources exclusively tell Page Six.
The party is also a “getting out” celebration of sorts for billionaire art dealer Helly Nahmad, who served five months in jail for running a celeb-studded, $100 million gambling ring and has just been released from house arrest.
His lawyer, Ben Brafman, confirmed Helly, who runs the Nahmad Gallery at the Carlyle Hotel, had been “approved by the court for international travel” for the first time.
Others expected at Campbell’s bash — now an annual celeb-heavy event in Cannes — include Leo DiCaprio, Sean “Diddy” Combs, oil heir Brandon Davis, nightlife guru Richie Akiva, and fellow top models including Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn and Gigi Hadid.
