Naomi Campbell-super model to super mopper
Naomi Campbell, the leggy beauty will change her glamourous outfits for a broom, gloves and safety vest when she begins mopping floors at New York's Sanitation Department on March 19, a court official confirmed on Tuesday. She has to clean up the mess she has brought on herself.
The British 36-year-old model was sentenced to community service as punishment for throwing her mobile phone at her housekeeper.
She is a recovering cocaine addict who is reputed to have a quick temper, with several tabloid stories involving violence against her staff as well as verbal abuse.
She is now included among the stars brought down to earth, like singer Boy George who attracted huge media attention when he swept streets in a court-ordered punishment in August last year.
She is estimated to have so far acquired a wealth of US$28 million from modelling.
