Irizarry accuses the Victoria Secret swimsuit model of punching her in the nose after giving Ebanks boyfriend Terrence J a friendly kiss on the cheek. Irizarry and the Think Like A Man star had known each other for years, but Irizarry said that a tipsy Ebanks did not take kindly to the gesture.
Irizarry and Terrance J are old friends, the model claims. But when she greeted him at the club, Selita reportedly interjected, “Don’t be kissing my man,” and a physical fight ensued.
“When she saw me, she said, ‘Don’t be kissing my man,’” Irizarry said. “I said to myself, ‘So what, that’s my friend.’ That’s when she hit me on the nose. I went to swing back — that’s when all her friends jumped in. I felt hair pulling and fists coming at me.”
The 34-year-old is now suing the VS model for a complex nasal fracture and nasal obstruction that required surgery days later.
In the suit to be filed at the Hudson County Superior Court near Ebanks’ New Jersey home, Irizarry is seeking cash for pain, suffering and medical bills .
“I’m so angry, because she thinks she can get away with anything,” Irizarry said. “You shouldn’t be allowed to put your hands on anyone for no reason. Me saying hello to someone doesn’t give you the right to hit me.”
Ebanks was never arrested or charged, though Irizarry filed a police report and sent them her medical records. The curvaceous model says she hopes her actions send a stronger message to those in the fashion world.
“We hope that with an action like this, Miss Ebanks will no longer attack or assault anyone,” Steinberg said. “We think this is a very simple case of assault and battery by a woman, who maybe used her status and stature to feel like she could get away with something.”
No word from Ebanks as of yet, she’s been busy promoting her her new swimwear line, Sass. Selita must have been drinking Peach Ciroc.. It will cause you to act very un-model like.
