Suffering a leg injury after being violently attacked and robbed on a street in Paris just after Christmas, Naomi Campbell tells the press she’s “fine.”
The supermodel was attacked by thugs as she tried to hail a cab, knocking her over and robbing her and it seems Naomi is lucky she walked away with only a torn ligament.
A source says, “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.”
“Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up,” the source added. It is not known what the thugs stole from her, but it’s believed they were targeting expensive jewellery she may have been wearing.
Naomi’s billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin immediately flew her to Vail, CO where she was treated by J. Richard Steadman, a top orthopedic surgeons whose client list includes Alex Rodriquez.
The model has since been seen using a wheelchair and crutches to get around, but remains positive tweeting inspiring messages and throwing a New Year’s Eve bash at her Miami Star Island home.
Her spokesman and agent declined to comment. When reached by phone, the Naomi said, “I am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine.” Ever the gentleman, Doronin has upped the security around her.
