Naomi Campbell confronted Jack Whitehall after he made a joke about her relationship with Liam Payne.
Naomi labelled Jack a "naughty boy" after he referred to the One Direction singer as her "squeeze" when he arrived on stage to present an award with Winnie Harlow at the Brits in 2019 and Liam admitted Naomi was not happy with him either.
Jokingly challenging Jack to a boxing match in retaliation, Liam, 27, said: "Someone I happened to be with that was the person that he mentioned at the Brit Awards went in on him for saying that joke at the Brits.
"I take it as a joke, it is what it is, but she was not happy. Jack, you got me in a lot of s*** that night. So me and you are going to do a charity boxing match."
A source added to The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "Naomi marched up to Jack and said, ‘You really are a naughty boy'. The pair joked about it and she saw the funny side of it."
As Liam and Winnie arrived on stage, host Jack quipped: "Now it's time for our next award. To present it, a supermodel and supermodel Naomi Campbell's current squeeze.
"His surname's Payne, which is what he'll be in a world of if he crosses her — it's Liam Payne and Winnie Harlow."
Naomi, 50, reportedly ended her four-month romance with Liam - who is now engaged to Maya Henry - after growing "bored".
An insider previously explained: 'Liam and Naomi had a lot of fun together, they got on well and had a laugh. But it just wasn't meant to be. They are going to stay friends – there are no hard feelings with either of them."
