• Naomi Campbell is reportedly recovering from a vicious attack and mugging at the hands of Parisian thugs over a month ago. The supermodel allegedly wanted to keep the incident under-wraps as Parisian police continue to investigate. Campbell was reportedly “knocked over and robbed” when hailing a cab. She suffered a torn ligament and has since been treated by J. Richard Steadman, a top orthopedic surgeon, in Vail, Colo. Campbell’s billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, has increased her security. When contacted over the phone she said, “I’m sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine.” However, according to the police in Paris, there is no record of Campbell’s attack. [NY Post] [Daily Mail]
