Summer of Sam beauty Jennifer Esposito is recovering after falling victim to a pitbull attack earlier this month (MAY03).

The sexy actress, who was once romantically linked to Jennifer Lopez's ex Cris Judd, was in the hallway of her New York City apartment building when a neighbour's pitbull got loose and attacked her, latching onto her leg, says a source.

A pal tells American magazine US WEEKLY, "The owner got the pitbull off Jennifer, but then it bit her again."

Esposito, 30, was rushed to an emergency room, where her injuries were treated.

Her representative says she is "doing fine" adding, "The dog is being removed from the building."
