Naomi Campbell has settled a legal dispute with a former housekeeper who claimed the supermodel struck her and called her names for not being able to locate a pair of jeans.

While terms of the settlement have been sealed, an attorney for Campbell said that both she and former employee Gaby Gibson were satisfied. Gibson was under the supermodel’s employ from November 2005 through January 2006, the Associated Press reports.

An attorney for Gibson did not return calls for comment. In the course of the case, Campbell denied Gibson’s claims and was never charged with any crime.

Campbell, 38, has a spotty history with housekeepers. In 2007, she was ordered to attend anger management classes and complete five days of community service after she pleaded guilty to assault for throwing a cell phone at another housekeeper, Ana Scolavino.

In June last year, Campbell was sentenced to 200 hours community service and fined $4,500 after pleading guilty plea to assaulting two police officers in London’s Heathrow airport the previous April.
