A police chief has confirmed supermodel Naomi Campbell was mugged by two assailants in Paris last year (12).
Breaking reports suggested the British beauty was hailing a cab when she was violently attacked by thugs, who left her with a torn ligament, and now a French official has spoken out about the incident, revealing two men on motorbikes tried to steal Campbell's handbag on the night of 21 November (12).
A statement to Reuters reads, "There was an attempted robbery with violence."
Campbell filed a formal complaint with the police in Marais, where she declined a medical examination of her injuries, but she allegedly received treatment from a top orthopaedic surgeon after boarding a jet to Colorado.
The 42 year old has yet to comment on the attack. She is believed to be recovering in Florida, ahead of the launch of her new TV show, The Face, next month (Feb13).
