NEW YORK (Reuters) - A fragrance marketing company is suing Naomi Campbell for breach of contract, saying the supermodel withheld millions of dollars in profits that she owed the company for a fragrance it helped her develop.

Campbell "has made millions of dollars from the sale of fragrances and cosmetics products conceptualized, created, developed and marketed with the assistance of" Moodform Mission, said the lawsuit, filed by Moodform on Monday in New York State Supreme Court.

A representative for Campbell was not immediately available for comment.

The fragrances at issue are Naomi Campbell, Cat Deluxe and Seductive Elixir.

Moodform said Campbell sent regular payments, as was required by her contract, to the company from 2001 to 2008, but that those payments abruptly stopped and that Campbell has "ignored" communications from the company since then.
