After allegedly laying the smackdown on former “The City” sidekick Samantha Swetra last month, “Boardwalk Empire” star Paz de la Huerta has been slapped herself — with a lawsuit.
TMZ reports that Swetra filed suit against the HBO actress in a New York court on Friday, claiming that she has sustained permanent damage after a scuffle with de la Huerta last month. According to the suit, Swetra was “assaulted, beaten and battered” by de la Huerta, leading to “severe” injuries, “some of which … are permanent in nature.”
Swetra is seeking unspecified damages in the suit.
De la Huerta, who was arraigned earlier this week, has been charged with multiple counts of third-degree assault, criminal possession of a weapon, attempted assault and harassment in relation to the incident. The actress allegedly punched Swetra in the face and threw a glass at her leg at Manhattan’s Standard Hotel on March 20. The melee reportedly occurred at approximately 4 in the morning, after de la Huerta took a liking to Swetra’s male companion and was told to back off by the reality-TV personality.
De la Huerta plays flapper girl Lucy Danziger on the HBO series, which debuted in September.
