Naomi Campbell is usually the one who’s laying hands on someone, but if Page Six’s latest report is correct, the super model unfortunately just got an awful taste of her own medicine when she was attacked and robbed in Paris while trying to hail a cab.
One source told the NY Post column that Naomi suffered a torn ligament in her leg during the attack which left her pretty distraught.
“Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground,” the source said. “She was understandably very upset and shaken up. It is not known what the thugs stole from her, but it’s believed they were targeting expensive jewelry she may have been wearing.
Naomi appears to have been by herself, or at least without her billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin. He reportedly flew her by private jet to Vail, CO, to be treated by orthopedic surgeon to the star athletes, J. Richard Steadman, as soon as he heard the ne ws. Since the incident, which is said to have happened about a month ago, Naomi has been using a wheelchair and crutches to get around. And aside from notifying French police, the 42-year-old has kept the attack on the hush hush, not publicly speaking about it, or disclosing to many friends. A source added that Naomi is still a bit spooked about the whole thing:
“It was terrifying,” they said. “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.”
Naomi’s rep has declined to comment on the situation and when the post contacted her, all she told them was:
“I am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine.”
I won’t say this is karma, but Naomi may know how it feels now to have someone unnecessarily put their paws on you. But here’s hoping to a speedy recovery and safe travels in the future!
