Supermodel Naomi Campbell was released from the hospital on Friday in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she underwent surgery to remove a cyst from her abdomen.

"The patient has recovered well from her surgery," the hospital Sirio-Libanes said in a statement. One of the doctors who operated on her said Naomi is "perfectly fine" and he has recommended that she stay in Brazil to rest before resuming work.

Local media reports say the supermodel left the hospital by helicopter to an undisclosed location to avoid the paparazzi. She also reportedly told the hospital personnel to disconnect her phone because she didn’t want to be bothered. Sources say her behavior was downright diva-ish!


Naomi was reportedly planning on throwing a big party following her release, however TMZ is reporting that’s not the case. "I take my health very seriously — so to suggest that I would host a party following an operation is ludicrous," Campbell said, adding, "I would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and concern over the past week and for the fantastic service I received at the hospital."
