Naomi Campbell - Supermodel Naomi Campbell Victim Of Violent Paris Street Robbery

The supermodel Naomi Campbell suffered a torn ligament in her leg after she was attacked and robbed in Paris, theNew York Post reports. The incident happened over a month ago but Naomi has kept a low profile since then and the incident has only just come to widespread public attention. It is thought that she was targeted for her expensive jewellery.

A source told the news site “It was terrifying. Naomi believes the assailant had been watching her, casing her out, and waited for a moment to strike when she was alone. She was attacked in the street as she hailed a cab, and robbed… Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up.” Naomi reported the incident to the cops in Paris and her boyfriend, the billionaire Vladimir Doronin, flew her to Colorado, where she was treated by J. Richard Steadman, a top orthopedic surgeon.

Naomi has not spoken about the incident, in public. This is reportedly at the request of the police, who are still trying to track down the thugs that assaulted her. When NYP contacted Naomi to find out more about what happened, she said “I am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine.” Publicly, she has shown no signs of distress, despite having to rely on a wheelchair and crutches to get around and has instead been tweeting messages of inspiration to her online followers.
