Babestation Model Zoe Lewis Out Of Work After Being Glassed On Night Out
A Babestation model has been told she won't be able to pick up any shifts after she was glassed on a night out.
Zoe Lewis, from Worcester, UK, was out on the bank holiday Sunday at Flints Bar in Sutton Coldfield when a woman smashed a Prosecco glass in her face, leaving her with three-inch deep cuts.
The 28-year-old has subsequently been told by Babestation that she will not be able to work while her wounds heal.
Speaking to Birmingham Live, she said: "They [Babestation] have said there is no way at the moment. If there's any wounds or scarring, or any sudden changes to my facial appearance, even if you bump your head, you can't go there as it will give them bad publicity.
"They say you need to look as you do in your photos, they're really strict on it. It pays for my bills - I'm self-employed so if I don't go in, I won't get paid.
"I was just thinking, 'This stupid girl has done this to me and I did nothing to her.'"
Ms Lewis said the assault unfolded after two girls sat in her friend's seat while he went to get a glass of water at the busy bar.
She said: "She was just mimicking for a couple of minutes what I was saying - 'No, you can't sit there,' and gesturing her arms the same as I was.

"We decided to get up and go as I was getting annoyed and my friend said 'come on then, this obviously isn't going to end well'.
"As I stood up she just launched the glass of Prosecco off my head, out of nowhere, she threw it off my head.
"I've never been in a fight before, I thought she slapped me, so I didn't know she'd actually scarred me. My reaction was to get up and go. That's when my friend grabbed me and said, 'You're bleeding, you need an ambulance.' I was just in sheer shock."
Ms Lewis subsequently spent six hours in A&E - from 11.30pm until 5.30am - where they glued the wound back together.
West Midlands Police are now appealing for any witnesses to the assault to come forward.
In a statement, they said: "Police are investigating reports of an assault at a bar in Belwell Lane, Sutton Coldfield at 11pm on Sunday (25 August). Enquiries are ongoing.
"We know there were large crowds of people in the bar at the time and therefore encourage anyone who saw the incident or with any information to contact us."
A spokesperson from Babestation told LADbible: "We were very shocked to hear about the unprovoked attack on Zoe and wish her well.
"Zoe was at work today taking call from here fans. We have been communicating daily with Zoe and hope that the attackers are identified."
