Oil of Olay model Shawna Christensen paid a visit to the Manhattan district attorney's office yesterday, hoping to set the record straight about the monied brawl which broke out at Double Seven a couple weeks ago.
If you need a refresher: models Natasha Poly, Anja Rubik*, Jessica Hart, and (we now learn) Shawna Christensen were involved in a violent altercation between two opposing gangs of aristo-pals.
Poly, Rubik, and Christensen were hanging out with businessman Adam Hock, when Jessica Hart apprached the group, started taunting them, and somehow all hell broke loose.
Within some short amount of time, Hock had punched Prince of Monaco Pierre Casiraghi, former Paris Hilton boyfriend Stavros Niarchos, and Carine Roitfeld's son, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld. Prince Casiraghi was rushed to the hospital (possibly with a broken jaw) and Hock was charged with four counts of assualt.
According to Christensen's statement to prosecutors, Hock should be cleared of all charges because he was acting in self-defense. The model claims that Restoin Roitfeld provoked the brawl by pummeling Hock's shoulder with a 1.5 liter bottle of Grey Goose magnum, worth $500.
Hock claims that his opponents were motivated by pure jealousy: “I feel I was victimized by several drunk, entitled guys who felt they deserved the prime table with the most beautiful girls. They expected to be treated like the royalty they are. They didn’t get what they wanted, and it pissed them off.”
Um. It happens to the best of us? Who among us hasn't reached for a club and found only an overpriced bottle of topshelf vodka? Sorry, but I can't really relate to any part of this story
