By Ryan Naumann

Former Victoria Secret’s model Erin Heatherton is being accused of living the high life with expensive vacations and spending sprees, all while refusing to pay her debts.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Heatherton’s ex-business partner is accusing the model of screwing her over by spending $50,000 on designer clothes and spa trips, instead of paying bills.

Earlier this year, Leo DiCaprio's ex-girlfriend filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy listing $6,465.57 in assets and $560,242.13 in liabilities. One of her creditors is her ex-business partner, Clare Byrne.

In newly filed documents, Bryne demands Heatherton’s debt not be discharged and her bankruptcy be dismissed.

She claims Heatherton’s bank records reveal the model was spending wild prior to filing for bankruptcy. Bryne takes issue with Heatherton dropping $12,380 on spa trips, $1,500 on technology, $18,000 on designer clothes and over $10,000 with online purchases.
