Naomi Campbell was mugged and suffered torn ligaments as a result of the brutal attack that took place in Paris, New York Post reports Jan. 3. Several sources claim the supermodel was hailing a cab when she was suddenly knocked over and robbed by thugs.
The incident allegedly occurred last month and the report is now hitting the Internet.
“It was terrifying," a source told NYP. "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 reported the mugging to French police.
There's no word on what exactly was stolen from Campbell, but it's speculated that the robbers were seeking her expensive jewelry.
The alleged mugging helps explain the crutches and wheelchair that the 42-year-old supermodel has been using. Campbell hasn't commented on the mugging -- nor has her spokesman or agent.
