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, “It was terrifying. Naomi believes the assailant had been 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.
“Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up,” the source said. It is not known what the thugs stole from her, but it’s believed they were targeting expensive jewelryshe may have been wearing.
The beauty’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 French police who are hunting down the thugs.
We are also told Doronin has upped security around Naomi, as a precaution.
The model’s 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.”
Naomi has remained positive since the attack. She has been tweeting inspiring messages and threw a New Year’s Eve bash at her house on Miami’s Star Island. She’s now resting in Miami and preparing for next month’s launch of her TV show “The Face.”
That’s too bad….. right?
