Naomi Campbell has been pinned as one of the most beautiful women in the modeling industry, and in the world in general. And she has made history as one of the most successful minority supermodels of all time, Tyra Banks falling in that same category along with her. As the stunning beauty has been praised repeatedly for her looks and ability to rip the runway every time she steps foot on it, that has not always been the case when it comes to her attitude as Naomi has a reputation for having a very nasty one that has left her on numerous occasions without an assistant. Not just merely having an attitude problem, Naomi Campbell has landed herself in legal trouble as she has been accused numerous times for assaulting former employees of hers when things don’t go her way and was forced to go to anger management classes over her violent attacks on her former housekeeper. While Naomi still to this day continues to struggle with controlling her temper, what happened to her on the streets of Paris not too long ago made people put the thoughts about her angry antics aside for a moment and concerned developed as it was reported that the supermodel was mugged in Paris and suffered bodily injuries as a result of it:
Naomi Campbell suffered a leg injury when she was violently attacked and robbed on a Paris street, multiple sources exclusively tell Page Six.
The supermodel was set upon by thugs as she tried to hail a cab and was “knocked over and robbed,” we’re told. She suffered a torn ligament, and reported the incident to French cops.
One source said, “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. 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 jewelry she 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 AlexRodriguez.
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.”
We’re glad to hear that Naomi Campbell is doing better after the suffering the vicious attack.
