Troubled supermodel Naomi Campbell will not face charges following her October arrest for allegedly attacking her drug counselor.

The 36-year-old beauty was taken into police custody in London on Oct. 25 after her female therapist claimed she had been scratched in the face by Campbell.

The Crown Prosecution Service have confirmed they will not press charges against Campbell.

Speaking to British TV network Sky News, Campbell says, "What's awful about it is it's dropped--none of it was concrete evidence to be held.

"It was so hurtful, almost to the point of depressing, and that's what's awful about it.

"I have to be very careful who I'm around, what I say ... I prefer not to be round someone on my own any more because I just don't know the agendas that people have."

Campbell: 'I'm a Target'

Naomi Campbell insists she is a "target" of people hoping to make money off of her, after a string of assault lawsuits have been filed against her.

The British beauty, 36, has been accused of attacking several former employees this year, but insists she is innocent in all cases.

Campbell tells Sky News, "It's been really like a tough year in terms of like the accusations and stuff like that. It's been very hurtful and blown out of proportion.

"But I can't stop getting on with my life. I have to get on with my life. I can't pay too much attention to this negative stuff.

"I don't like to live in the negative. I like to stay in the present moment and stay positive.

"It's just like, 'Where does this come from and why?' I just feel like I am a target. People have told me for months and years, 'You're a target.' But it's only just kind of sunken in that I am a target."

Former maid Gaby Gibson claims Campbell beat and racially abused her earlier this year, while housekeeper Ana Scolavino alleges she threw a cell phone at her head in January.

Campbell's former friend Yvonne Scio says the supermodel punched her in the face at a Rome hotel in July 2005, and her former assistant Amanda Brack is also suing the beauty for verbal and physical abuse.
