Martin Lawrence To Fight Assault Allegations

LATEST: Funnyman MARTIN LAWRENCE is going to court to fight accusations he insulted and slapped a woman at a Hollywood party.

Model JENNIFER PALMER claimed the BAD BOYS star struck her in February (04) and charged him with battery and assault.

Lawrence has denied the allegations against him, insisting Palmer was attacked by someone else.

And others are standing by the comedian-turned-actor - a fact which has angered Palmer, who has told American scandal show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, "There were two people that I know that are afraid to come forward because their livelihood depends on their career in the entertainment industry."

She alleges there has been a cover-up to protect Lawrence.

The trial is set for 9 February (04).
