Tyra Banks says she was not Naomi Campbell's equal when it came to modelling.
The 45-year-old entrepreneur was pitted against the 49-year-old supermodel early in her modelling career and Tyra believes that Naomi was wary of her because there were not many opportunities for black women at the time.
She explained to The Wall Street Journal: "It wasn't a rivalry, and I'm very sensitive to that word because a rivalry is with two equals to me, whereas one was very dominant,
"She was a supermodel and I was just some new girl that got on a plane from Paris, and was studying fashion in magazines at a fashion library."
While Tyra found the feud tough at the time, she admitted that, with hindsight, she can see why Naomi acted the way she did.
