Model Selita Ebanks doesn’t play when it comes to her man.

Ebanks was involved in an altercation with Telemundo model Liza Irizarry over her boyfriend Terrence J at a Miami club last year. Ebanks allegedly hit Irizarry in the face and broke her nose. Now she’s suing for assault and battery in Hudson County Superior Court, near Ebanks’ New Jersey home. She seeks cash for pain, suffering and medical bills.

According to the New York Daily News, Irizarry claims she was headed inside Miami’s Dream nightclub at about 5 a.m. last November when she saw Terrence J leaving. Since she had known Terrence for years, she greeted him with a kiss on the cheek. Ebanks, who she believed was drunk, didn’t like the exchange.

“When she saw me, she said, ‘Don’t be kissing my man,’ Irizarry told the New York Daily News. “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.”

Irizarry suffered a complex nasal fracture and nasal obstruction that required surgery days later.

“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.”

Irizarry was not happy with Terrence reaction to the situation.

“He did nothing,” she said. “I even texted him later that day to tell him that wasn’t cool and asked him what the hell was up with Selita. I never disrespected either of them. He never responded.”

Ebanks’ lawyer Paul Rothenberg said the suit ‘is nine months old and completely without merit.’
