Things were as rosy for the couple more than a decade earlier, when Bensimon was arrested on assault charges for hitting Stefanov.

‘She was arrested on March 5 at 9:10 a.m. for punching her fiancé in the face, and [she] gave him a laceration under his left eye. She was arrested for assault — it’s a misdemeanor,’ the New York City Police Department told People at the time.

The New York Post reported that Bensimon may have also been attacked, as a source said she was sporting ‘a fat lip.

After initially pleading not guilty, she entered into a plea deal that only required her to do two days of community service as punishment.

The former model initially pleaded not guilty to the charge of misdemeanor third-degree assault, but she later entered into a plea deal which only required her to perform two days of community service. 

Even at the time, Bensimon and Stefanov were reported to be dating on and off, and the two have continued to come back to each other in the ensuing 11 years.

The Post quoted a friend of Stefanov’s after the assault who said he claimed the two were engaged, though a source close to Bensimon disputed that claim to People and said the two weren’t even exclusive at the time.
