The model also says other stars have endured similar experiences
Naomi Campbell sympathizes with Kim Kardashian West – who was robbed in Paris at gunpoint a few months back – as she went through a similar experience in 2012.
She explained on the Wendy Williams show: “I’ve gotten to know Kim in the last few years, and she’s a really great girl. I sympathize with her a lot.
I kept mine on the down low, but in 2012 I was attacked in Paris. They followed me from the airport. They attacked me. They opened my car door and said, ‘Naomi Campbell, we’re going to kill you.’ I didn’t make it so public; I didn’t want it to be. I think there’s a picture of me in a wheelchair at the time.
I had taken a plane from Switzerland to Paris, which is like one hour. I didn’t call security – it was just a quick trip.”
And the 46-year-old model considers herself lucky after realizing something seemed “weird” about the situation. This prompted her to escape before anything truly bad took place.
She added: “I was going to see my lovely papa, Azzedine Alaïa. I went to the car, and it wasn’t my normal driver. And it was weird because… the windows were down in freezing cold November. I was like, ‘Wait a minute! This is weird…
I wanted to stop at the pharmacy – thank God the pharmacy was closed. My papa called me and said, ‘My daughter, where are you? We’re ready to eat dinner.’ At that point I abandoned the idea.
Thank God it was outside Azzedine Alaïa’s shop – that’s the entrance to get into the house – because they came out and saved me, basically. You decide in a split moment – I don’t know if I’d ever do this again, in hindsight – ‘Am I going to let this guy take my bag with all my passports or am I going to fight for it?’ My decision was, ‘I’m not letting my bag go.’
I was outside the home of Azzedine Alaïa, and I was in the car with blacked out windows. The driver was in on it. There’s a whole ring. It’s been happening for a few years now.”
Naomi also claims other stars have endured horrifying experiences, although she refused to disclose any names.
