Naomi Campbell was injured in Paris mugging




Model and serial phone-thrower Naomi Campbell was injured in a mugging in Paris when she was "knocked over and robbed" while hailing a cab more than a month ago, the New York Post says. She apparently suffered a torn ligament and called the cops.

“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," a source told the Post. "Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up."

Her billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin flew her to Vail, Colo., to be treated by orthopedic surgeon J. Richard Steadman, the Post says. If Steadman's name sounds familiar, it's because his Steadman Clinic has treated Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, among others. The 42-year-old Campbell, meanwhile, has been using crutches and wheelchair to get around, which probably does wonders for her already famously good mood.
