Naomi Campbell Mugged In Paris

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.

She didn't have a phone to throw at them?

R2, why that would simply be taboo...

by Miareply 601/04/2013

Isn't this a Jay-Z and Kanye song?

by Miareply 801/04/2013

That's one brave mugger.

by Miareply 901/04/2013

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.

by Miareply 1001/04/2013

Did she get slapped?

by Miareply 1101/04/2013

Why is this now being reported? Answer in last sentence. Launch of "The Face" next month.

by Miareply 1201/04/2013

R10, just love me some FA! Saw them at the Fringe Festival this year. Still so funny...

by Miareply 1301/04/2013

What part of the cite did this occur?

by Miareply 1401/04/2013

Getting her just desserts?

by Miareply 1501/04/2013

Who could have done such a thing? Stick a pin in International Whos Who.

by Miareply 1601/04/2013

Mon Dieux!!

by Miareply 1701/04/2013

Paris sounds dangerous. I'm not going there!

Like I always say, life is short, get your just desserts first!

by Miareply 2001/04/2013

Phonus balonus.

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.

by Miareply 2401/04/2013

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.

by Miareply 2501/04/2013

Feel bad for her, could have been worse. BUT... Karma is a bitch.

by Miareply 2601/04/2013

R5 is right. Its Karma, baby.

by Miareply 2701/04/2013

Probably her dealer.

by Miareply 2901/04/2013

Dozens of models, agents and photographers desperate to take the credit for this selfless act.

by Miareply 3001/04/2013

Naomi!! Champagne for Lulu!!

by Miareply 3101/04/2013

The article says this happened more than a month ago. Why is it in the news now?

[quote] no way is Naomi taking a taxi and no way is she getting robbed by some small time crook without a fight.

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.

[quote]It's too bad they didn't slice up that ugly mug of her's.

Too bad you're subliterate.

by Miareply 3301/04/2013

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.

by Miareply 3401/04/2013

Yes. Everything is going according to plan.

by Miareply 3501/04/2013

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.

by Miareply 3901/04/2013

Sheesh, she's lucky...She could have gotten a blood clot from flying immediately after the ligament tear...

by Miareply 4001/04/2013

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.

by Miareply 4201/04/2013

I'll bet you ten bucks she wasn't mugged, she got into a fight with her dealer.

by Miareply 4301/04/2013

"It said the thugs had attempted to steal her bag"

How Lindsay Lohan gets her Birkins.

by Miareply 4401/05/2013

Purse-snatchings from thugs on motorbikes are common in Paris.

by Miareply 4501/05/2013

Good. This bitch deserves it.

by Miareply 4601/05/2013

Has anyone seen or heard from Tanya Harding?

by Miareply 4701/05/2013

Mug that bitch!!!!

by Miareply 4801/06/2013

What did the mugger get? Brass knuckles? Frying pans? Her enemies list? Satisfaction?

Or did he win a bet?

by Miareply 4901/06/2013

He - how does it feel, bitch!

by Miareply 5001/06/2013

About time the bitch was on the receiving end.

by Miareply 5101/06/2013

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!

by Miareply 5201/06/2013

The mugger got the cell phone she threw at Rosario!!! Hahahaha
