LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Hairspray” star Nikki Blonsky says the July 29 Turks and Caicos airport brawl between former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Bianca Golden and her own family has destroyed the Blonsky clan.
“The hardest part for me is to see my parents walk around in severe upset and sadness,” Nikki told People.
The 19-year-old actress tells the mag that she and father Carl have been “completely destroyed” by the incident in the airport and says she lives “every day in pain.”
According to Nikki, Bianca’a account of the incident on “The Tyra Banks Show” on Oct. 8. was “absolute lies.”
As previously reported on Access, Carl Blonsky plead not guilty to his charge of grievous bodily harm, which carries a maximum punishment of five years. Nikki was charged with actual bodily harm.
They are both scheduled to return to court together in Turks and Caicos on December 1.
Golden was also charged with actual bodily harm and is due back in court on Nov. 24.
Following the airport brawl, Golden’s mother, Elaine Golden, was airlifted to a Florida intensive care unit. She suffered a cracked skull and broken nose.
