Naomi Campbell Mugged In Paris

Last month in Paris, Naomi Campbell was knocked to the ground and robbed while she was trying to hail a cab. The NY Post says that Naomi suffered a torn ligament in her knee during the mugging which she thinks was carried out by someone who had been watching her for some time and wanted to get her alone. She is lucky nothing else happened to her. Naomi does not say how much the mugger got, but it was late at night and she had been out for the night, so, probably not that much. Now, if we were into conspiracies we could say she came up with that story to explain the torn ligament, but what if it was someone or something else that caused it and she won't say.

Must have been an ex personal assistant.

Is it wrong that I'm glad karma finally bit Naomi? I know it's mean, but she's such a bitch.

cbb said...

Cdaners, I know you can find the blind this relates to!

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

My first thought as well, karma is a bitch.

My first reaction was: Couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

My second reaction was: I'm being a total bitch hag.

So, glad she's OK. Hopefully, she will learn something from it. But, really I'm probably fooling myself.

Sidenote: Enty - LOVED the blind reveals yesterday. Now THEY were juicy.

She is a bitch but getting robbed is serious.

PuggleWug said...

The mugger had some cojones. I'd be afraid I would get my ass kicked.

Henriette said...

The mugger must have thrown her down hard to tear a ligament. Was she fighting with him or her?

MBK said...

Couldn't have happened to a nicer gal (although I'm glad she's okay).

Seachica said...

I'm finding it hard to believe that Naomi was ever alone. Doesn't she go everywhere with a posse?

Pini 27 said...

I can't believe that she would not have a car waiting. I can never find a taxi stand in that town. Although copious amounts of Kirs don't necessarily aid the navigation process.

My first thought was she didn't publicize it because she is so nasty that she didn't want to give everyone a moment of glee.
For which, most of us instantly feel guilty the very next moment.

PuggleWug said...

Is a torn ligament worse than a break? Those who I know who have had damage to their leg never needed to ride in a hover-round because of it.

PuggleWug said...

Then*

PuggleWug said...

Crap, I meant than. I can't delete my comment, so I will just pretense I never corrected myself with the wrong one.

PuggleWug said...

Pretend*
Damn you, autocorrect!

Anna said...

If it's not true, then she probably had knee or hip replacement surgery but doesn't want fashion industry to realize she's having an old-person surgery, and will remember she's not 18 anymore.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Her boyfriend is a Russian oligarch, and it is it unthinkable that he has some shady connections and equally shady enemies.

Vicki Cupper said...

As much as I dislike her, that really sucks.

Pogue Mahone said...

I thought she was the one used to knocking people around? I wonder how she liked it now it was reversed?

Christopher Cruz said...

Agreed! Karma is finally catching up with her!!!

DBZee said...

@Puggle - thanks for the morning giggle. :)

Torn ligaments can be as bad as a bone break, depending on where it's located. Too much pressure (ie, weight bearing) can make it much, much worse, requiring surgery to replace he ligament with an artificial one.

DBZee said...

*the - heh, time for my own fight with the keyboard.

hunter said...

I'm with the conspiracy theories, I don't think it was a mugger but something FAR MORE SINISSSSSSTERRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really though, I think it was something else.

Roman Holiday said...

When I read this my first thought was HA! But that is mean and no one should ever be mugged - even Naomi! She looks good in her hoveround though:)

Rox (used to be Roxxx) said...

I have zero sympathy and I don't even feel guilty about it.
Seeing as how her 'boyfriend' is still married to his wife, I wonder if the wife had anything to do with it....

auntliddy said...

I think, that like The Orient Express, her victims got together and hired a hit- literaly- man to get payback. Its hard to have any feelings for such a nasty human.

it took forever said...

Hmmmmmm, want to know how she really got that injury.

rhinovodka said...

I don't feel sorry for her at all. She is an ugly person.

ParalyticPossum said...

This.

Kewi said...

Same thing I was thinking, I wonder if she had time to throw her phone at her attacker.

JSierra said...

A torn ligament? What, did she get mugged by a linebacker or rugby player?

And I find it a little hard to believe that she is totally alone. I don't know this girls life at all, but from the pics I have seen she is always surrounded by people.

If only Nokias where still popular. She could have chucked that at his head and probably killed him on the spot. Those things are ruthless.

Supermom said...

Scary as much of a bitch she is I feel kind of bad if that's what happened. I was viciously robbed at gunpoint with my attacker on me and I'm scared of my shadow to this day :-(

lalaland said...

Oh no @Supermom! So sorry u had to go through that :( My house was broken into when I was home alone at 12. Thankfully the guy took off when he saw me, but I still jump at any sound when I'm home by myself :/

MsPink Kitty said...

I doubt it was her lover's wife, they vacation together and take photographs together. Both women in that situation are twisted.

The lover isn't too much better. As for hints of the Russian mafia. Nothing would surprise me.

Torn ligament, does that mean she is now retired from runway modeling? Will she ever be able to walk in a pair of Louboutins again... the plot thickens!

lalaland said...

Naomi is a crazy bitch but I wouldn't wish something like that on anyone. However, I'm not so sure I believe this is what really went down.

Agent**It said...

I liked the "hip surgery" theory:)

QueenBee said...

I am throwing the bullshit flag on this. You don't hail cabs in Paris. You get cabs at taxi stands on the street, or call a cab. This is fishy.

Rox (used to be Roxxx) said...

Ms Pink Kitty:
Seriously, they vacation together??!!! Wow - that is sick. I thought the wife hated NC? Which is obviously so much healthier.

nudibelle said...

Bullshit.

Tuxedo Cat said...

I totally think it could happen. Trying to hold onto a purse, or being suddenly dragged could definitely cause a torn ligament. She's tall, but not very heavy.

I wouldn't say I like Naomi's personality, but I respect her long modelling career. I mean, how many models become household names.

CK76 said...

But is she a household name more due to her modeling or her other escapades?

Mango said...

Her boyfriend's a bazillionaire. She considers herself so precious I'm very surprised that she doesn't have a bodyguard.

Agent**It said...

Apparently, there was no police report filed. Maybe she tripped over her enormous ego ?

Lola said...

Hailing a cab? Bitch, please. Assuming that Naomi would even lower herself to ride in a cab...hailing one? Herself? That's what peasants are for.

Kowalski said...

One good push onto concrete, and I tore a knee ligament. It was horrible. It hurt so gd bad. That was 15 years ago, and the damn thing still pops and aches when I walk too long on it.

Supermom said...

That's my worst nightmare a home robbery/invasion!! Thank goodness he left :-)

Mari said...

Well that's it then. No police report, no "mugging".
Yeah, I mean we all know NONE of her acquaintances are shady.

JoElla said...

She did it while chasing some poor person down, wanting to throw a phone at them.

Tuxedo Cat said...

@CK76

I'm not sure how old you are, but she's been one of the top models for years. There were a few years where she was in every fashion magazine.

Naomi, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista sort of ran in a pack and bragged that they wouldn't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.

bekH said...

Good point Enty! If it were really a mugging, why are we hearing about it a month later? Bitch paaaaaleeeze! She'd have been milking this for all she could get!

astrogirl said...

Daily Mail has a different story. She was mugged by motorcycle robbers while sitting in a limo...

Agent**It said...

hi astro, NY Daily News also reporting same info and state that there is now a police report....interesting...

hothotheat said...

I was mugged and beaten in the foyer of my apartment building 10 years ago. Still don't have any sympathy for her. One story I read said she went to the police but declined medical treatment (yet she tore a ligament).

Somethin's not right here, but I'm not sure why you'd lie about a injury to your leg.... If she were hiding an assault because of her bf, she wouldn't even say she was assaulted. And how does someone on a motorbike mug someone sitting in a limo? She's hiding something.

astrogirl said...

I agree. "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" ;)

HAILSwebzine said...

Goooood! Hate her.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Even her quote about it was douchey:

"I don't talk to the press, but I'm fine." Something like that. One of the entertainment shows had the quote.

Anna Namuss said...

Someone was watching her for a while? Honey, put down the coke straw, no one is watching you, no one cares. Paranoid bitch. Someone took her purse, and pushed her to the ground. Now she knows what it's like to be assaulted for no reason, maybe she'll think twice before slapping and hitting her employees.
