‘We’re going to kill you’ Naomi Campbell targeted by Paris thieves

Kim Kardashian has finally made a triumphant return to social media after she was robbed in an armed heist at a luxury apartment in Paris.

Just days after the selfie queen's comeback, top supermodel Naomi Campbell has spoken out to revel that she has also been targeted by thieves in Paris in the past.

Speaking on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday, the catwalk veteran told the audience that she was attacked by an organised crime ring in 2012.

The star said that from the moment she was picked up from the airport, something felt off. 

The driver who collected her was acting suspiciously, and kept all of the car windows down for the entire drive despite the freezing November temperatures.

When she arrived at her destination, the Azzedine Alaïa store which doubles up as the designer's home, things got violent.

"They followed me from the airport, they attacked me. They opened my car door and said, ‘Naomi Campbell, we’re going to kill you.’" she told the talk show host. 

"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."

Luckily, store workers saw the violent events unfolding and rushed out to help the supermodel.

"In the interim, you decide in a very 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?," she said.

"My decision was, ‘I am not letting my bag go.’"

"The driver was in on it. It’s a whole ring that’s been happening for a few years now,” she continued.

When asked about Kim Kardashians experiences, the The Face host replied: 

"I very much sympathize. I felt for her right away. I hated hearing these stories that it wasn't true. It was absolutely true, and it happened to me and it’s happened to a few other people that I’m not at liberty to say, but are well known also."

The thieves who robbed Kim Kardashian are still at large.
