NAOMI Campbell was yesterday accused of hitting her former maid and calling her a “dumb Romanian”.Gaby Gibson branded the supermodel a racist and said that she asked her: “Are all the women in Romania as pathetic as you?”

Her claims — made in civil court papers filed in New York — came as Campbell, 35, appeared in criminal court charged with assaulting ANOTHER ex-maid.

The catwalk queen, who denies the charges, may now face Boy George-style community service such as cleaning the streets if she strikes a plea deal to avoid jail.

Ms Gibson, 40, is suing Campbell for millions over claims that she subjected her to “repeated discriminatory assaults based on national origin”.

She says that Campbell told her “You’re not in the Third World any more, stupid.”

Ms Gibson says she hit her and vowed to charge her with theft when she failed to find a pair of Stella McCartney jeans.

When asked if Campbell was racist, her lawyer David Breitbart said: “No. People are trying to extort money from her.”

Campbell yesterday appeared at Manhattan Criminal Court to answer claims by ex-maid Ana Scolavino, 38, she threw a mobile phone at her head.

The model — who faces up to six years if convicted — arrived in a 4×4 with a team of bodyguards.

The case was adjourned while lawyers work on a deal.

Mr Breitbart said Campbell may do community service if she accepts a plea bargain.

But he said the task has to be “palatable” rather than street sweeping like pop star Boy George, adding: “Helping raise funds for cancer research would be better.”
