Supermodel Naomi Campbell has revealed that she was once attacked in Paris, under similar circumstances as Kim Kardashian.

“I sympathize with her a lot…because in 2012, I was attacked in Paris,” Campbell said on the “Wendy Williams Show”.

She said that her attackers had followed her to the airport. They opened her car door and said “Naomi Campbell, we’re going to kill you.”

Campbell’s friend, shoe designer Azzedine Alaia rescued the star. Campbell also said that a number of other high-profile people had been robbed in Paris. But she refused to reveal their names, saying it was not for her to say. She said that these incidents have been happening for a few years now.

Campbell said that she had kept the story out of the media because she wanted privacy.

Last year, Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint at her Paris hotel. Five armed men stole several million dollars of her jewellery.

Mallika Sherawat was also attacked in Paris last year. Three intruders sprayed her with tear gas in the hallway of her apartment building, while struggling to take her purse. Luckily, she fought back and nothing was stolen.

Turns out Paris isn’t the romantic and peaceful destination we imagined it to be!
