Naomi Campbell Assaulted by Muggers in Paris


Model Naomi Campbell was roughed up in the streets of Paris over a month ago and details are beginning to emerge about the frightening attack.

The 42-year-old was targeted by thieves as she tried to grab a cab.  During the attack Campbell was violently thrown to the ground and suffered a torn ligament and is reportedly still using crutches and a wheelchair to get around.

Naomi believes that she was being watched and that the robbers waited for her to be alone before she was physically accosted.  French authorities are investigating the crime and cautioned the model to downplay the situation as they attempt to get some leads on the muggers.

Naomi's billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, flew Campbell by private jet to Vail so that she could be treated by top orthopedic surgeon J. Richard Steadman.

Could it have been a failed kidnapping?  That has likely crossed Doronin's mind because he has reportedly beefed up her security.

Page Six contacted Naomi's camp but they declined comment other than to say that she is "fine."

Campbell has been resting in Miami as she prepares for next month's Oxygen network launch of 'The Face' hosted by photographer Nigel Barker and featuring supermodel coaches.
