Pretty Girls Gone Bad: Beautiful Women Who Unexpectedly Got Into Ugly Fights

December 5, 2012  |  

Some of these women may seem like they’d never get into a fight, in the words of the Real Housewife of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield, don’t let the cute face fool you. Although these ladies may be pretty, they’re definitely not afraid to break a nail or suffer a scratch while delivering a beat down at any time.

Selita Ebanks

Selita Ebanks may be a model, but some of her behavior has been anything but. Back in November of 2011, Ebanks allegedly punched Liza Irizarry, a model on Telemundo, in the face, breaking the poor woman’s nose. Irizarry claimed she was punched for giving Ebank’s boo Terrence J. a kiss on the cheek – a claim that Ebanks and her lawyers vehemently denied. Either way, Irizarry suffered a complex nasal fracture and obstruction severe enough to require surgery. A police report was filed against Ebanks, but charges were never brought.

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan may have once been a sweet, freckle-faced young Disney star, but her recent actions seem to indicate that she’s far removed from that now. Just five days ago, Lohan was arrested for allegedly punching a woman in the face in a New York City nightclub. Not many details have emerged as to why such an assault may have occurred, but sources are saying that the two women were seated near each other in the club, and Lindsay wasn’t too happy about it.

Jessica White

In 2010, Sports Illustrated model Jessica White was arrested for repeatedly beating a woman in the face and pulling her hair over – get this – a cab! The events transpired outside of a New York City lounge at around 5am, following a party White had to celebrate her breaking up from Sean Penn. The victim suffered abrasions and swelling to the face.

Faith Evans

In the 90’s, Faith Evans was the pretty girl with the soulful voice. She was married to Biggie Smalls which didn’t affect her “quiet” image much – until reports started coming out that the singer had, on multiple occasions, gotten into scuffles with women Biggie had slept with – the most notable being Lil’ Kim.

Teyana Taylor

Much may not be known about Teyana Taylor; the baby-faced newest addition to Kanye West’s entourage, but her Miami club fight in March still came as a surprise to many. While celebrating Queen Latifah’s birthday, Taylor and a stripper by the name of Skrawberry (not a typo) got into a huge fistfight which eventually became a massive brawl. In the end, a club window was shattered – though Taylor appeared uninjured.

Naomi Campbell

In addition to abusing at least two of her assistants, Campbell has gotten into a slew of brawls all over the world. Two of her most recent fights have been with fellow model Marcelle Bittar in a Brazilian restaurant, and Miodrag Mejdina; her New York City chauffeur (which really just consisted of Campbell punching the driver in the head). Campbell has even been accused of assaulting her best friend for wearing a similar outfit as her.

"Whitney Houston PF"

Whitney Houston

The beloved Whitney Houston will always be remembered as a beautiful and talented woman with an amazing voice. But though the superstar was all of those things, she surprised all of us when we learned that she was also not afraid to get down in a fight. In 2003, the Jersey girl called-in to a radio interview with Wendy Williams, during which Houston made it very clear that she would not be afraid to “meet [Wendy] outside.”

"Pilar Sanders PF"

Pilar Sanders

Since filing for divorce, Pilar Sanders’ many scuffles have seriously shocked. First she got into a physical altercation with ex-husband Deion Sanders’ aunt, Laura Jones, in the Texas mansion she once shared with Deion. Then Pilar got into a fight with Deion himself, for which she was charged with assault and jailed overnight.

"Lionel Richie and Brenda Harvey"

Brenda Harvey

The infamous 1988 beating of Lionel Richie and his mistress, delivered by Richie’s then-wife Brenda Harvey, will not soon be forgotten. The events were shocking – all of them, but particularly Brenda’s arrest and assault charge. In the end, the incident casted Brenda in a whole new light; much different than had been thought.

  • Kaori

    If these WOMEN weren’t ‘pretty girls’, would it have been more expected for them to get into a fight?

  • Guest

    I thought you said pretty girls!! T. Taylor looks like a hoodrat!! Oh please!!

  • MImi

    The title of this article just has me rolling….it implies that “pretty” girls are not expected to fight but “ugly/unattractive” girls are. Let me tell you…no one is above giving or taking an a$$ whoppin when it is deserved. LMBO!!!!

  • WhatHuh?

    This list says “pretty girls” yet Lindsay Lohan is on here?? I’m done

  • IllyPhilly

    Pretty, ugly, young, old, if you are not five ears old at your cubby fighting over the blue crayon you’re a loser. Celebs fighting celebs is never really fighting anyway. It’s hugging and weave pulling until the camera guys break it up. And some beg for it to hurry up and end (yeah you paws on ’em guy)

  • sexcgenius

    I reguse to read this BS. Why is the writing highlighting barbaric behavior? Is the best she thinks blacks have to offer?

  • pretty girl/ugly girl if you fight just to be a butt-hole, you’re stupid.

    • IllyPhilly

      Amen

  • WAIT! Sean Penn was with a BLACK CHICK?! I thought he was some type of super RACIST, or some sh**?! Didnt Madonna say he was racist?…
    Welp, goes on to prove you cant believe everything you hear/read…

    • I know right?

    • MImi

      No he is not a racist. He actually moved to Haiti after the earthquake in 2010 and has been helping rebuilding the country.

      • OH! Okay! Kudos to Mr. Penn then! In both aspects!

      • Kaori

        That doesn’t make him not racist, if it were true that he is.

        • MImi

          Well I can’t say for sure he is not a racist but if someone has dated black women and is trying to rebuild a a country full of black people than I wouldn’t think he is racist. Racist people usually don’t help people they hate. I have yet to meet a racist that wanted to date me and/or help me with anything. He is being a humanitarian by helping Haiti….racist people are not humanitarians because they usually hate anyone that don’t look like them so my guess is that he is not a racist.
