Supermodel Naomi Campbell reveals to Wendy Williams that she has been attacked in Paris, in a similar way that Kim Kardashian has been. The 46-year-old says that her attackers threatened to kill her.
Naomi Campbell sympathizes with her friend, socialite Kim Kardashian, as they both have been victims of terrifying attacks in Paris. But while the reality star’s robbery at gunpoint was all over the media in a matter of hours, the 46-year-old model kept her experience private for years.
Campbell was attacked in 2012, on her way from the airport to fashion designer Azzedine Alaia’s home. “They followed me from the airport. They attacked me”, she begins telling show host Wendy Williams. “They opened the car door and said, ‘Naomi Campbell, we’re going to kill you.’”
Campbell adds that she was a little suspicious when it wasn’t her regular driver who was picking her up from the airport. She also found it strange that the car that was waiting for her had the driver’s window rolled down.
The moment she was attacked, Campbell said that she decided in a split second what she was going to do. “My decision was, ‘I am not letting my bag go.’” Luckily for her, the car pulled over in front of Azzedine Alaia’s apartment and her friends came out and saved her. She also states that the driver was in on the attack/robbery. “It’s a whole ring that’s been happening for a few years now”, the supermodel added, mentioning her sympathy for Kim’s experience, in the fall of 2016.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian is back on social media, after an absence of a few months, following the robbery in Paris. The 36-year-old mother-of-two has posted several pictures of her, husband Kanye and kids North and Saint, starting January 4.
