On Thursday, Naomi Campbell unveiled the details behind a horrifying incident that took place in 2012.
Speaking with Wendy Williams about Kim Kardashian’s robbery in Paris, Naomi revealed, “In 2012, I was attacked in Paris, they followed me from the airport. They attacked me, they opened my car door and said ‘Naomi Campbell we’re going to kill you.'”
Recounting the story, the supermodel left Williams and the audience stunned. “I didn’t make it public, I didn’t want it to be. I think there’s a picture of me in a wheelchair at that time,” she said.

Campbell continued that she’d been traveling alone on a short trip to visit fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa and noticed the driver of the car she called wasn’t her normal driver. She didn’t think much of it, headed to a pharmacy, which was closed, and went to Alaïa’s home. The attack took place outside of the designer’s house and thankfully, friends came to Naomi’s rescue.
She went on to reveal that the driver was in on the attack and allegedly, there’s a ring of thieves in Paris who plan ambushes like this. “I very much sympathize with her [Kim Kardashian] and I felt for her right away. I hated hearing these stories of it wasn’t true because it was absolutely true and it happened to me and it’s happened to a few other people,” she said.
