*Model Jessica White was 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, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
Sources said that when White 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.
White, who insists Kian hit her first, tried to cover her face in the elevator, said a witness.
White, meanwhile, didn’t walk in this year’s show, which will air on CBS Nov. 30.
“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,” said White’s lawyer Mark Jay Heller. “Jessica’s hopeful that the television will soon flash a news story that I favorably disposed of the criminal charges against her.”
