British supermodel Naomi Campbell will be cleaning floors in a New York municipal warehouse this month as part of a five-day community service order.
Naomi Campbell admitted to an assault charge last month
The cleaning is a punishment for Campbell throwing a mobile phone at her housekeeper, court officials said.
She admitted reckless assault in a plea bargain with prosecutors at Manhattan Criminal Court last month.
As well as community service, the 36-year-old was also ordered to attend an anger management course.
Campbell has apologised for assaulting her maid - the fourth such complaint against her - and agreed to take the course.
