Naomi Campbell continues to recuperate in a Sao Paulo, Brazil, hospital after doctors removed a small cyst earlier in the week, says a rep for the facility.
“We have been instructed to not release any information regarding Naomi,” a Sirio Libanes Hospital spokeswoman told the Associated Press on Wednesday. “All I can tell you is that she is still at the hospital and that she is recovering very nicely.”
On Tuesday, the British supermodel’s London rep issued a statement saying, “Naomi Campbell was admitted to hospital [Monday night] to have a small cyst removed. Following the successful procedure, she is now resting and is looking forward to getting back to work. She would like to thank he doctors who have kindly looked after her.”
On Wednesday, neither the hospital spokeswoman nor Campbell’s publicist, Jeff Raymond, would say how long Campbell, 37, would remain hospitalized, though the Sirio Libanes rep said she was being cared for by David Uip, one of Brazil’s leading experts in the treatment of infectious diseases.
