Former supermodel and upcoming reality show mentor Naomi Campbell was robbed on the streets of Paris while trying to hail a cab, resulting in a torn ligament in her leg. Where were her cell phone throwing skills when she needed them?

Based on information from a source close to Campbell, “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.”

Just like a snake. Therefore, Naomi Campbell's mugger was a giant snake. Case solved. You're welcome, French police.

“Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up,” the source added.

No word on why Campbell was robbed, but it might have been due to the incredibly expensive jewelry she was wearing at the time. Or the fact that she lives in a spaceship.

Using a few of his billions of dollars, Campbell's boyfriend Vladimir Doronin had her flown via private jet to be treated in Vail, Colo. by one of the “top orthopedic surgeons in the world,” J. Richard Steadman.

Campbell has been using a wheelchair and crutches since the incident, which occurred over a month ago. She's has been mum on the whole incident because the French police – who are in the middle of investigating – asked her to keep her famously sassy mouth shut.

Doronin has since upped his girlfriend's security detail. They must have all been going to the bathroom when she was robbed.

Campbell's representative has yet to be reached for comment, but Naomi herself said after being contacted, “I am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine." She then asked the reporter to throw their phone at themselves.
