Brack, 19 at the time of the alleged incidents,is seeking damages for "assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, reckless infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment," said the lawsuit filed this week in a New York court.
Brack's lawyer says that in one incident, the British model smacked her assistant with aBlackberry, pushed her against a wall and then slapped her because a piece of luggage was left behind during a trip to Brazil.
