Supermodel Naomi Campbell suffered a torn ligament in her leg after she was a violently attacked and robbed on a Paris street.

The 42-year-old was trying to hail a cab in the French capital when she was allegedly "pushed to the ground by a group of thugs" last month.

A source told The New York Post: "It was terrifying. She was attacked in the street as she hailed a cab. Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up."

The model's billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, was said to have immediately flown her by private jet to Vail, Colorado, to receive treatment from some of the best orthopaedic surgeons in the world.

Campbell has since been using a wheelchair and crutches to get around following the attack.
