Naomi Campbell almost went through a very similar experience to Kim Kardashian West and her Paris robbery in October 2016.
The supermodel opened up about her 2012 attack in Paris for the first time.
"I like Kim a lot, she's a very sweet person," the 46-year said on The Wendy Williams Show.
"I sympathise with her a lot because, I kept mine pretty down low, but in 2012, I was attacked in Paris," she continued.
"They followed me from the airport ... They opened my car door, and said, 'Naomi Campbell, we are going to kill you," she added. "I didn't make mine so public, I didn't want it to be."
Naomi explained that she was traveling from Switzerland to Paris alone at the time. “I didn’t call security — it was a quick trip. 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 he had the window rolled down.… It was freezing cold in November. I was like, ‘Wait a minute! This is weird.’"
"I wanted to stop at a pharmacy," she continued. "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, because that’s where the entrance is to get into the house. [My friends] came out and saved me, basically."
The supermodel revealed that these attacks on celebrities are a common occurrence.
"The driver was in on it. It’s a whole ring that’s been happening for a few years now,” Campbell said.
"I very much sympathise with [Kardashian]. 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."
