British supermodel Naomi Campbell will swap her catwalk 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 Tuesday.
But Campbell, who was sentenced to community service as punishment for throwing her mobile phone at her housekeeper, will serve her five-day sentence indoors.
Singer Boy George attracted a media throng when he swept streets in a court-ordered punishment in August.
The New York Post reported Tuesday that Campbell had been assigned to mop floors with other community-service workers at a Sanitation Department warehouse in Manhattan. A court official confirmed the story but declined further comment.
Campbell, 36, has been accused by at least three employees of hitting or otherwise assaulting them. She has blamed her temper on lingering resentment toward her father for abandoning her as a child.
