Playboy model NICOLE LENZ has furiously defended her vicious catfight with singer Bijou Phillips at an Mtv Movie Awards after-party on Saturday (05JUN04).

The angry pin-up insists the attack at Los Angeles nightclub EXIS was unprovoked and that FRIENDS star Matthew Perry had to rescue her from the violent singer - who she has recently obtained a restraining order against.

The busty brunette tells website PAGESIX.COM, "Bijou jumped me! I was just standing there and this girl punches me in the face and starts dragging me by the hair.

"Matthew Perry had to take her off me and she got thrown out of the club, kicking and screaming profanity at me all the way. I don't even know Bijou Phillips."
