Naomi Campbell a 'racist', claims former maid

'Dumb Romanian' sues battling supermodel

WSA Naomi Campbell's former maid is suing the battling supermodel over claims that she called her a "dumb Romanian", the New York Times reports.

Gaby Gibson, 40, filed papers on Tuesday in a New York court which allege Campbell subjected her to "repeated discriminatory assaults based on national origin". Specifically, Gibson claims Campbell asked her: "Romanians are not usually as dumb as you?"

Gibson described Campbell as a "violent super-bigot" who "called her names and threatened to press charges for theft when the model was unable to find a pair of Stella McCartney jeans".

Campbell was yesterday before the beak in Manhattan Criminal Court on a charge of assaulting another former maid with a mobile phone. She appeared for just five minutes, "dressed in a form-fitting empire-waist charcoal dress decorated with a black bow at the chest", as the NYT notes, before making good her escape in a black Cadillac Escalade.

The DA's office and Campbell's lawyer are apparently working on a deal whereby Campbell will cop some community service in lieu of hard time. This will likely not, however, be purging New York's mean streets as did Boy George last summer - sentenced "to sweep sidewalks for five days...as punishment for falsely reporting a burglary at his downtown apartment" - since her lawyer David Breitbart "suggested that cleaning up was just not Ms Campbell's style".

Breitbart said he hoped she might be sentenced to "community service in a hospital, like Memorial Sloan-Kettering or Mount Sinai". Campbell is due back in court in January to discover her fate. ®
