Supermodel NAOMI CAMPBELL sustained a leg injury after she was mugged in Paris, France, according to a new U.S. report.
The beauty was hailing a cab in the French capital when she was violently attacked by thugs, who left her with a torn ligament.
Campbell went to police to report the incident, which happened over a month ago, before boarding a private jet to Vail, Colorado, where she received treatment from a top orthopaedic surgeon.
A source tells the New York Post gossip column Page Six, "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."
Campbell was first spotted using a wheelchair last month (Dec12) but she has kept quiet about how she was hurt.
She is now believed to be recovering in Miami, Florida, ahead of the launch of her new TV show The Face next month (Feb13).
It was that fucking maid she belted getting revenge.
Perhaps they thought that she was Dillie Keane.
Nous vous avons dit que nous étions dur.
She didn't have a phone to throw at them?
R2, why that would simply be taboo...
It was more likly of bunch of Muzzie teens!
Isn't this a Jay-Z and Kanye song?
That's one brave mugger.
Bless you, R6. I have had their song about doppelgangers as an earworm all morning, and now this thread.
"You wouldn't believe how many people stop me in the street and tell me, 'I know who you are; you're Naomi Campbell...."
Wonderfully warbled by Ms Keane herself.
Did she get slapped?
Why is this now being reported? Answer in last sentence. Launch of "The Face" next month.
R10, just love me some FA! Saw them at the Fringe Festival this year. Still so funny...
What part of the cite did this occur?
Getting her just desserts?
Who could have done such a thing? Stick a pin in International Whos Who.
But how does Naomi feel about Les Miserables? THAT'S THE IMPORTANT QUESTION BEING IGNORED HERE.
Paris sounds dangerous. I'm not going there!

Like I always say, life is short, get your just desserts first!
Tore 3 ligaments once, had maybe a crutch. And I am nowhere near the terror she is.
Wheelchair great prop tho.
Glad she saw a top ortho, too, instead of one of those kerbcrawling Parisian practitioners of orthopaedia.
Someone posted on another site that this may be some oligarch mafia warning to her Russian BF no way is Naomi taking a taxi and no way is she getting robbed by some small time crook without a fight.
Naomi dear, they meant to do more than simply mug you. Watch your step. Whoops, I mean sorry about the leg thing.
Girl, it must have been scary.
Feel bad for her, could have been worse. BUT... Karma is a bitch.
R5 is right. Its Karma, baby.
It's too bad they didn't slice up that ugly mug of her's.
Probably her dealer.
Dozens of models, agents and photographers desperate to take the credit for this selfless act.
Naomi!! Champagne for Lulu!!
Karma, Nigga. KARMA.
The article says this happened more than a month ago. Why is it in the news now?

Eh, she's feisty, but her past victims have been employees or staff, no? That doesn't mean she'll take on random criminals. If this even happened, that is.

Too bad you're subliterate.
Agree with R24 - there is no way someone as grandly self-obsessed as her would be standing in the street, alone, late at night, looking for a taxi. My guess would be she's had some sort of surgery and doesn't want to remind anyone that she's of an age now that minor surgeries will start to be necessary.
Maybe she twisted her leg that time she fell off the Vivienne Westwood shoes and now it's catching up with her 42 year old bony knees. Or she got a cramp from all the backpedaling she did trying to deny that she was paid in (untaxed) blood diamonds.
Also, given that she's got an international reputation as a cunt, wouldn't someone at the hospital have tweeted this? Either way, when karma slaps back it hurts.
Yes. Everything is going according to plan.
Niggahs in Paris.
Her former maids and employees pooled their money for a hit man. Too bad he ran away before he finished the job.

There are several versions of this story going around.
The NY Post says, Naomi Campbell was injured when she was violently attacked and robbed by bikers on a Paris street.
The supermodel was set upon by thugs on November 21 in the historic 4th Arrondissement as she tried to get into a car. Her leg was injured in the attack, with the model suffering a suspected torn ligament.
The paper Le Parisien cited police sources that Campbell had been attacked by two bikers at 7 Rue de Moussy. It said the thugs had attempted to steal her bag, but failed. It added that Campbell had refused to seek emergency medical care.
Sheesh, she's lucky...She could have gotten a blood clot from flying immediately after the ligament tear...
7 Rue de Moussy is the address listed for the top designer Azzedine Alaia. Naomi has been the longtime muse and a close friend of the Tunisian-born designer. They met when she was a teenage model. She often stays with Alaia, who she describes as a father figure, on trips to Paris.
Couldn't happen to a nicer girl.
I'll bet you ten bucks she wasn't mugged, she got into a fight with her dealer.
"It said the thugs had attempted to steal her bag"
How Lindsay Lohan gets her Birkins.
Purse-snatchings from thugs on motorbikes are common in Paris.
Good. This bitch deserves it.
Has anyone seen or heard from Tanya Harding?
Mug that bitch!!!!
What did the mugger get? Brass knuckles? Frying pans? Her enemies list?
Or did he win a bet?
He - how does it feel, bitch!
About time the bitch was on the receiving end.
I hope the mugger beat the shit out of her before he ran off. She's needed a good ass whoopin' for a long time. Just deserts, I say!
The mugger got the cell phone she threw at Rosario!!! Hahahaha
