Naomi Campbell Reportedly Mugged in Paris

Naomi Campbell Says She's "Fine" After Reportedly Being Mugged in Paris



The torn ligament that has kept Naomi Campbell in a wheelchair and on crutches is reportedly the result of being mugged.

While the supermodel has kept the cause of her injury quiet, a source told Page Six that a band of thugs "knocked over and robbed" Campbell while she was trying to hail a cab in Paris over a month ago.

"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," the source said. "Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up."

The jewelry Campbell was wearing at the time of the attack may be why she was targeted. She's said to have reported the theft to French police, and was advised not to talk about the event while it's under investigation. The most she's said about the incident is, "I am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine."

Campbell is reportedly recovering in Miami after being treated by an orthopedic surgeon in Colorado. Her active tweeting of inspirational quotes and affirmations suggests she just wants to put the whole thing in the past.
