Celebrity chef ‘was assaulted’ by ex

Erica Wang has been arraigned on assault and weapon possession charges after leaving English needing seven stitches to a wound above his eye, after striking a blow with the sharp edge of a Chopard watch – according to the New York Post.

The alleged fight took place on 14 September (09), three weeks before English jilted Wang, 33, at the altar.

The couple were due to wed in Miami, Florida on 3 October (09).

According to his lawyer, English decided to press charges against his ex after she gave an interview to the Post, attacking the chef, which he felt damaged his reputation.

Daniel De Benedictis says, “(He) felt he had to move forward to protect his credibility”.
