Interest in vegan food has been booming across the rich world. Celebrity claims of veganism are everywhere: Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Serena and Venus Williams, Lewis Hamilton, Mike Tyson, Beyoncé, take your pick. (source)

According to grammar rules, is this sentence right (marked with a word in bold)?

To me, it's more like to be "Celebrity who claims of veganism are everywhere".

Is this an omission?

Yes, it is correct. The word claims is a plural noun there, not a verb. The word celebrity is a noun used as an adjectival modifier. The phrase celebrity claims means "claims by celebrities".
