Kira said she was about to leave her apartment in Moscow for a modelling job in China when her boyfriend attacked her out of jealousy.
‘He threw a chair at me then brutally beat me up,’ her post read.

‘He smashed furniture in my apartment shouting at me and calling me a whore.’
Kira said it was only when she lost consciousness that her attacker called an ambulance.
The police then arrived and she was taken to hospital where she was diagnosed with concussion and severe bruising.
