Lee-Anne Liebenberg in bubbly bust-up

Sultry model Lee-Ann Liebenberg claims she was sexually harassed while partying up a storm at a Camps Bay restaurant. The alleged incident took place at Cafe Caprice on Sunday night, while new mother Liebenberg and a group of friends were in the midst of racking up a whopping R75 000 bill for French champagne.

According to Media24.com, Liebenberg’s polo player fiance, Nicky van der Walt, aggresively confronted her alleged assailant at around 11pm. Van der Walt apparently let his fists do most of the talking, after which Liebenberg and her friends were asked to leave the restaurant. Liebenberg posted on Twitter that she had been attacked that same evening.

“Someone touched her in an inappropriate manner. She feels humiliated and shy,” her agent said.

But the manager of Caprice is laying the blame squarely at Liebenberg’s door.

Michael Mouneimne claims Liebenberg is seeking attention.

“She wasn't harassed. A man bumped into her by mistake in the very full restaurant and she pretended that he harassed her,” he said.

Mouneimne added that the Liebenberg crowd had been rowdy.

“They were drunk and went crazy. They even showered each other with the champagne.”

Things then got even crazier. After Van der Walt allegedly laid into Liebenberg, another member of their party started hitting Mouneimne. It was then that they were asked to pay their R60 000 bill for Veuve Clicquot, Dom Perignon and Moët and leave.

The group, however, were determined to keep the party going. They apologised for the dust-up and were allowed back in just after midnight, where they spent a further R15 000 on champagne.

According to Liebenberg’s agent, the model will not be pressing charges. He also denied that anyone was drunk. - IOL

why does this not surprise me??? and all this time i thought maybe i was in the wrong...this happened to a friend and i one evening, out at One & Only hotel during the world cup... we were invited to a cocktail party... Leonardo di Caprio, Mick Jaguar and all the celebs were going to be there... lo and behold, Lee Anne and her entourage made the entire experience unpleasant.. swearing at us like a trooper an literally just falling short of becoming physical... and all this while pregnant...we were told that we are fat, nobody's, and all because we apparently were standing in her view of Leonardo... the only thing that saved the day was Leonardo di Caprio being such a gentleman...Lee Anne - grow up and get a life... one day you'll be way past your sell by date and a cow to boot!!!

Funny how these guys can just blow their money having "clean fun"! if Khanyi Mbau had been the woman in question and Kenny Kunene her man protecting her honour i am sure there would have been a lot of negative comments. It is ridiculous how it is ok for whites to be rowdy and spend thrifts but hard working blacks should always know there place and are never seen to be having "clean fun" when they have similar get togethers

Some people don't know what to do with the money, some others(many of us, don't have money to pay the rent or buy food - How sad!. The world is going in a wrong direction - money, power, sex and again sex, and some people craving for attention. Clever people with money don't behave like this.

Embarrassing attention seeking behaviour! No guilt at all on having publicised that they blew R75000 on booze when they could have cut down, still had a blast and donated a big wad of cash to less fortunate people who need it. This kind of behaviour from a "celebrity" (ya right!) should be ignored or looked down upon
