A New York Post source confirms that men "knocked over and robbed" the model when she tried to hail a cab, resulting in a torn ligament for Campbell - as well as a sincerely scary experience.
“It was terrifying," the insider tells the newspaper. "Naomi believes the assailant had been watching her, casing her out, and waited for a moment to strike when she was alone."
Immediately following the ugly incident, Campbell's boyfriend - billionaire Vladimir Doronin - flew her by private jet to Vail, Colordao. She was treated there by an orthopedic surgeon and currently uses a wheelchair and/or crutches to get around.
The French police are still investigating the matter and security has been increased around Campbell.
She is resting comfortably in Miami and will launch a new show titled "The Face" next month. We wish Naomi a full recovery.
