The model and reality star known as the “French Kim Kardashian” is accused of repeatedly stabbing her boyfriend in a hotel near Paris, according to published reports.
Nabilla Benattia, who was once voted the most hated person in France, is in custody following the incident early Friday morning.
Authorities were called to the scene of the hotel in Boulogne-Billancourt following a dispute between the 22-year-old Benattia and reality show co-star Thomas Vergara, The Local reported.
Vergara, 28, is in serious condition at a Paris hospital but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, the news website reported.
The petite Benattia initially told cops that she and her boyfriend were attacked by three thugs, but later confessed that she stabbed him, a justice official told a radio station, according to The Local.
Vergara is reportedly refusing to file charges against his girlfriend.
Benattia, who is from Geneva, launched her own reality show in France late last year. Although she is often called the “French Kim Kardashian,” her own reality show did not last long.
Often ridiculed, Benattia was voted the most hated person in France last year in a poll run by Voici magazine.
