*Jessica White got into a lil’ tiff this past Saturday over a cab. But the model says she did not start the fight. White was arrested Saturday morning at 4:50 a.m. in Chelsea section of NYC after hitting the alleged victim, Vanessa Kian, in the face repeatedly and pulling her hair.

White was detained for 12 hours and was charged with a misdemeanor assault and will be appearing in front of a judge Dec. 15.

Earlier this week, the beauty hired attorney Mark Jay Heller, who reminded everyone how much of an angel Ms. White is:  

“The Sports Illustrated supermodels that I represent, such as Rachel Hunter and Jessica White, are all good sports and super people, not the type of women that get into catfights.

“Stories concerning celebrities frequently get blown up, and I’m confident that when the air is released from this blown-up story that has obviously been overinflated, all that will be left will be hot air with no substance.”

According to Heller, the young model was out celebrating her recent breakup with Sean Penn. White and her girls went to the corner of 10th Avenue and 17th Street to catch a cab when Kian approached her and supposedly hit the model’s shoulder.

“From what I understand, [White] was not the instigator,” claimed Heller.

When then NY Post called Kian at her job at Enterprise Parking to get her side of the story, a receptionist for the company said Kian “didn’t want to take calls from people like you.” Then she threatened that she’d press charges of harassment if the Post called back.
