The model uploaded photos of the view from Nobu, Malibu, where she'd been having dinner beforehand. Police sources said they did not think she had been drinking but that she was texting and driving 

'She identified herself properly and signed a written promise to appear in court,' a Beverly Hills Police Department spokesman said of the incident.

A representative for Harvey did not immediately respond to inquiries on Monday morning.

Lori is one of his seven children. Her mother is his third and current wife, Marjory. 

The 22-year-old is a model and was until recently dating P Diddy. 

Neither she nor the rapper confirmed the romance, but his 21-year-old son - who is a friend of hers - told Hollywood Life earlier this year they were having 'private time'. 

The pair were seen in Italy in August together and then again in September in Cabo San Lucas. 

Lori however unfollowed Diddy on social media earlier this month. 

It was reported that she had seen him with an another woman, Gemini actress Nicole Olivera, and that was the reason for the rift. 

Lori had earlier been linked to Diddy's son, Justin Combs. She was also previously engaged to Dutch basketball player Memphis Depay.
