Top 10 celebrity assaults of 2016/2017

2016 was a terrible year for female celebrities, as many of them were either harassed, assaulted or robbed in the year. In what could be described as a new fashion of robbery by men of the underworld, female celebrities have become soft targets. Unfortunately, this seems to be one of the many ways female celebrities have been targeted in recent times. From frightening stalking situations to online hacks, 2016 seems to have been an especially invasive year for women in the public eye. Same trend seems to have continued in 2017 with the most recent being that of Miss Tanzania 2016 contestant and model, Queen Nazil who was attacked by armed robbers on Saturday Jan 14, 2017 while she was returning home after a night-out with friends. The beauty queen was clubbed on the head by a machete wielded by one of the robbers. According to reports, Queen was waiting for her sister to open the gates when she was unexpected confronted by two men on a motorcycle. The men tried to snatch her handbag which she held on to. When the robbers realized that Queen was struggling to hold on to her bag she was hit on the head with a machete. The robbers left her bleeding while they sped off with the stolen bag. The contents of Queen’s handbag included an iPhone 6 model, TSh200,000 (N28,432.29) and other valuables. Queen is not the only female celebrity who has been robbed in recent times. In 2016, American reality TV star, Kim Kardashian-West was robbed on a trip to France. Early that Monday morning, Kim Kardashian was tied up and robbed at gunpoint of over $10 million worth of jewelry at her private Paris residence. In the same year, several Nigerian female celebrities became victims. Top among them includes Nollywood actress, Ireti Doyle who was attacked in Lagos. The robbers inflicted injuries on the actress, damaged her car and made away with her phone. Others are Nollywood actresses, Tope Osoba, Jennifer Eliogu, international make-up artist, Bimpe Onakoya and a host of others.
