    LARA Bingle is due to appear in court next month after allegedly hitting a motorcyclist and driving on a suspended licence in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

    The model has been ordered to appear at Waverly Local Court on July 3 on four charges - not giving way to a vehicle, driving while suspended, failure to give notice of change of address and not providing particulars to the other driver - following an incident in Bondi Beach on May 14.

    Speaking from Mumbai yesterday - where she is filming for her Network Ten reality series Being Lara Bingle - the 24-year-old declined to comment on the incident, stating it was "with her lawyers".

    But her new agent, Chrissy Biasotto, told The Sunday Telegraph Bingle, who lost her licence last year for speeding, would be fighting the charges.

    It is understood that motorcyclist Niki Vinnicombe suffered minor shoulder injuries as a result of the alleged accident.

    Channel 10 said that while this was not part of its new reality series, they were aware of Bingle's pending court appearance.

    "We are aware Lara was (allegedly) involved in a traffic incident. The matter is before the court and we are not in a position to make any further comment," a spokesman said.

    "We were not filming at the time."

    Bingle, the former fiance of cricketer Michael Clarke, is expected back in Sydney today - along with former manager Hermione Underwood.

    "I was working over in Los Angeles and it seemed the perfect opportunity to stop past on the way home. Hermione's never been here so it was the perfect opportunity to take her," she said of their time in India.

    "It's indescribable. There's no in between, it's either very poor or very wealthy."

    It was last week revealed that Bingle had ended her professional relationship with Underwood, but the model maintained they had remained good friends

    "Our friendship comes first and foremost. I guess with Hermione she wants to do lots of things other than be involved in my life and continually talk about me and my life. She wants to pursue her own things," she said.

    "She was there for me during the hardest time, and over the last eight months she's been so supportive."

    She was too busy talking on her mobile to even consider taking the time to look for the bike.
  14. Soooo, a Bingle bingle then?

  15. That seems to be the standard charge for hitting someone on a bike and injuring them.
  16. I'd like to know the outcome of her court case. If she doesn't get at least 12 months suspension and a hefty fine, I won't be surprised, but very angry. I guarantee if it was an unknown bike rider who did this the headlines wouldn't read "allegedly". I think Michael Clarke made the best decision in his entire life getting rid of that trash.

  19. You could only hope this trash of a show only lasts 1 week.

    This incident will be the third time in three months that she has been charged whilst suspended.
  20. Third time?!! Any of us nobodys would already be in jail!
