Model Jessica White is beautiful,  but under that pretty facade you wouldn’t imagine the troubles she has gone through. She admits to being molested at 14, overdosing on drugs and the assault charges for beating a woman up over a taxi cab.

On Being Molested at 14-Years-Old

“I had to go through the hurt secretly. I look at modeling as a savior, because [it allowed me] to leave and travel to Paris and New York when I could finally relax and be out of the abusive environment.”

On Overdosing at 20-Years-Old

“I was going to lose everything, but I was lucky, because I came face to face with evil, and it wasn’t something I liked seeing.”

On the Assault Charges

“I never denied getting into an altercation, but people painted me to be the bad girl, which was 110 percent false.[…]I was flagging a cab, and she came from behind me and pushed me.[…]I didn’t strike her until she hit me in the face. I don’t lash out at innocent people.”
