Last year, model Brittny Gastineau’s face was unrecognizable after she was brutally beaten by street artist Retna. Retna’s troubles continue with news of his arrest last night at Hollywood hot spot Craig’s restaurant.

As reported by 'TMZ,' Retna got into a violent fight with a paparazzi and was hauled away in handcuffs and charged with battery. Retna, however, is ancient history to Brittny as It has been reported that she has moved on to dating Latin Superstar Luis Miguel.

Britt has now put the past behind her and re-emerged with a glamorous new look. A source involved with the Warner Music Grammy bash at Chateau, which is incidentally Luis’ label, said, “Brittny looked gorgeous and was in good spirits, she made the rounds and worked the room like a pro, she has definitely turned a new page in her life.”

Indeed, sources close to Brittny say that after a difficult 2014, she has turned her life around and is doing better than ever.

“Last year was difficult for Brittny but that is all in her past and she has moved on and has somebody very special in her life,” said the source.

After dating Luis for a year in 2012, the pair split but a source close to Luis said he always loved her, “Luis fell madly in love with Brittny but at the time he was touring all over the world and they drifted apart.”

After being seen in Mexico city a few weeks ago with Luis, Brittny returned to LA and re-emerged into the spotlight while making the rounds at Grammy parties — including the Keurig®After-Party at The Continental Club — and wowing the crowd with her stunning new look.

“Brittny's life has completely changed for the better” says a source, adding that Brittny credits her close friends (like Kim Kardashian) for their unwavering support that helped her through a difficult time.
