US model sees own arrest story on firm’s elevator TV
New York: American model Jessica White was left flustered before the casting call for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show when the story of her arrest showed up on the company’s elevator TV.
Sources revealed that when White, 26, took the elevator in the lingerie company’s Midtown offices, a TV had the news story about her arrest after she allegedly hit Enterprise Parking employee Vanessa Kian in the face as both women tried hailing the same cab in Chelsea in October.
A witness said White, who insists Kian hit her first, tried to cover her face in the elevator.
“Jessica White has never been shy or embarrassed about revealing her face and body for Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret, but it’s something different when she’s being misportrayed in the news,” the New York Post quoted her lawyer Mark Jay Heller as saying.
“Jessica’s hopeful that the television will soon flash a news story that I favourably disposed of the criminal charges against her,” he added.
