The model famous for looking like a ‘Human Barbie’ has been left with wounds to her face and a gash on her lip after being attacked.

Valeria Lukyanova says she was strangled by a stranger near her home in Odessa, Ukraine following a two-year hate campaign.

She said her attackers, who apparently did not try to rob her, hit her on the head and several times on her jaw.

According to Asian Town, pictures of the 28-year-old went viral online earlier this year for her doll-like features and eye-catching figure.

Ms Lukyanova claims her physique is completely natural – except for breast implants.

Today, following claims of the attack, she was nursing wounds to her head, covered by bandages, and a swollen lip.

She denied claims she was simply masking plastic surgery.

She said:

"I was attacked by the entrance of my block of flats.

"I came back home from a shop with bags and entered the door code when two men rushed from the dark and attacked me.

"They said nothing and did not try to rob me.

"It happened in a flash, they hit me on the head, several times on my jaw, then one of them began strangling me.

"If it wasn’t for my neighbour who who suddenly appeared, I don’t know what would have happened. They saw her and ran away.’

The attack took place on Halloween night.

Ms Lukyanova was discharged from the hospital today, saying she feel ‘a little better’ but her jaw still hurts ‘badly’.
