Whoa! This is scary!
Naomi Campbell was mugged and robbed on the streets of Paris last month, which caused injury to her leg in the form of a torn ligament.
The supermodel was seen using crutches shortly thereafter, although the nature of her injury was not revealed at the time.
A source said of the incident:
"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."
The supermodel herself has not responded to comments about the incident except to say, "I am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine."
Shortly after the horrible incident, Naomi's billionaire boyfriend Vlad Doronin reportedly flew her out to Vail, Colorado to get treated by renowned orthopedic surgeon J. Richard Steadman, who has also treated athletes like Alex Rodriguez.
He also increased security so his lady love won't be hurt ever again.
Judging by her most recent appearances, Naomi seems to be doing well, and we hope she stays safe!
