Feisty supermodel Naomi Campbell was attacked and mugged in Paris over a month ago leaving her wheelchair bound and using crutches since.

Although it happened over a month ago, she was asked by French authorities not to make it public whilst they investigate; and it has only come to light as she was seen in New York in a wheelchair.

The attack, which occurred whilst the supermodel was hailing a cab, left her with a torn ligament in her knee and has resulted in her travelling to the US for surgery. She has also increased her security since the attack.

One source told the New York Post:

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.

However, when called by the New York Post to comment, Naomi told the paper that she was “fine”.

Good to hear she’s recovering then!
