Supermodel Naomi Campbell injured after Paris attack
MANILA, Philippines - Supermodel Naomi Campbell suffered a sprain on her leg after being mugged by a group of men on a Paris street in December.
Sources told The New York Post that the 42-year-old supermodel suffered from a torn ligament after she was "violently pushed to the ground" by her attackers.
Police said the group of men who attacked her intended to rob her of her fine jewellery.
"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," Hollywoodlife.com quoted the source spoken to by The Post.
The attack happened a month ago and the investigation is still ongoing in France.
Campbell, on the other hand, has been using a wheelchair and crutches. Her boyfriend has also increased the number of security personnel protecting the model. - Rappler.com
