Naomi Campbell Settles Suit Filed by Ex-Maid

Remember when Naomi Campbell's ex-maid filed a suit against her, claiming the supermodel struck her when she couldn't find a pair of her Stella McCartney jeans? And called her a "violent super-bigot"? The suit was filed in 2006, but of course you do. Campbell and her former housekeeper, Gaby Gibson, finally settled. The terms of the agreement weren't disclosed but Campbell's lawyer said, "Everybody's happy with the way it ended." We can speculate about whether Gibson got a truly satisfactory amount of cash, or we can remember details of jeans incident. We choose the latter:

Gibson also alleged that the famously fiery beauty... poked fun at her broken English, called her a "bad Romanian" and yelled "You are not in the Third World anymore, stupid!"

Gibson's lawyer hasn't commented on the settlement.
