According to multiple reports, ex-BET host Terrence J and his girlfriend Jasmine Sanders were involved in a hit and run crash in Studio City, CA early Tuesday. But a rep for the model says she was not even in the car.
Police are still searching for the couple after a $200,000 Mclaren that was registered to Terrence crashed into a tree around 12:30 a.m.
Witnesses reported seeing a Black male and a female fleeing the scene. The female was reportedly driving the car.
Jenkins and Sanders both had a lot to lose if cops charged them with DUIs.
Jenkins, who has starred in movies such as Think Like a Man (2012), is a host of E! News. He is best known as co-host of BET’s video music countdown show “106 & Park”.
Sanders is an in-demand model with print and runway contracts.
