Naomi Campbell has allegedly been left with a torn ligament in her leg after being robbed last month
Naomi Campbell may have put her brushes with the law well behind her, but she was reportedly the victim of a violent crime recently after being mugged on the streets of Paris.
The New York Post report the British supermodel was violently mugged after hailing a taxi in the French capital. The paper claims Naomi was ‘knocked over and robbed,’ and left with a torn ligament in her leg.
It is thought to be a pre-meditated attack and Naomi believes ‘the assailant had been watching her, casing her out, and waited for a moment to strike when she was alone.’
The attack has forced Naomi to use crutches and she's been seen using a motorized wheelchair although the model did not want to comment on the incident, simply telling the publication: ‘I am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine.’
Immediately after the assault, Naomi’s boyfriend Vladimir Doronin is believed to have flown her to Colorado to be treated by a top surgeon before increasing her security team.
The injury meant she had to bow out of plans to attend Roman Abramovich’s New Year’s Party in St Barts and instead spent the 31 December in Miami.
We hope she's feeling better now!
