Is it wrong that when I first read this story, my thought was Karma’s a bitch? For years, Naomi Campbell has reportedly slapped and assaulted people all over the globe. While in Paris, a couple of weeks ago, the supermodel finally got a taste of her own medicine.
According to Page Six, Naomi was “violently attacked and robbed” in Paris while she was trying to hail a cab. She was “knocked over and robbed”, suffering a torn ligament in the meantime.
One source said, Ã¢â¬ÅIt was terrifying. Naomi believes the assailant had beenÃÂ watchingher, 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.
Ã¢â¬ÅHer leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up,Ã¢â¬Â the source said. It is not known what the thugs stole from her, but itÃ¢â¬â¢s believed they were targeting expensiveÃÂ jewelryshe may have been wearing.
The beautyÃ¢â¬â¢s billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, immediately flew her by private jet to Vail, Colo., where she was treated by J. Richard Steadman, one of the top orthopedic surgeons in the world and the founder of the Steadman Clinic, which has treated many athletes, including Alex Rodriguez.
Naomi, 42, has been using a wheelchair and crutches to get around following the attack, which happened over a month ago. Our source added she has not spoken publicly about the assault nor told friends, at the request of FrenchÃÂ policeÃÂ who are hunting down the thugs.
We are also told Doronin has upped security around Naomi, as a precaution.
The modelÃ¢â¬â¢s spokesman and agent declined to comment. When reached by phone, the Naomi said, Ã¢â¬ÅI am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine.Ã¢â¬Â
Naomi has remained positive since the attack. She has been tweeting inspiring messages and threw a New YearÃ¢â¬â¢s Eve bash at herÃÂ houseÃÂ on MiamiÃ¢â¬â¢s Star Island. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s now resting in Miami and preparing for next monthÃ¢â¬â¢s launch of her TV show Ã¢â¬ÅThe Face.Ã¢â¬Â
That’s too bad….. right?
