French reality Tv star Nabilla Benattia has been charged with the attempted murder of her boyfriend.

Police were called to the the Allo Nabilla star's apartment last Friday (07Nov14) following reports of an altercation between her and boyfriend Thomas Vergara. They found him with a knife wound in his chest, according to the Agence France-Presse.

The 22-year-old Tv favourite told cops she thought Vergara was a burglar and she was acting in self-defence, but surveillance footage disproved her version of the events, prompting her to change her story and tell police he had accidentally stabbed himself during a row.

She was charged with second-degree murder on Sunday (09Nov14) and changed her story again, according to Afp, telling cops she acted in self-defence after Vergara hit her several times.

Benattia shot to fame after a pregnant Kim Kardashian paid her a visit on an episode of her show.

The most recent season of Allo Nabilla ended with her boyfriend, Vergara, proposing to her. He has yet to press charges.

Benattia is currently being held in a women's prison in Versailles.
