The woman accused of attacking Leonardo DiCaprio with a broken beer bottle has pleaded not guilty to charges.
Aretha Wilson maintained her innocence in a Los Angeles court on Thursday. She stands accused of one count of assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly slashing the Titanic star’s face outside a 2005 party.

Reports suggest she mistook the star for a former boyfriend.

She also claims DiCaprio started the altercation by taking offense at remarks she was making towards him.

Wilson was recently extradited from her native Canada to the United States to face charges and is currently behind bars in lieu of $150,000 bail.

DiCaprio has volunteered to testify against the 40 year old at her upcoming trial. If convicted, she could face up to seven years in jail.

She is due in court again on 13 October.
