Millionaire socialite Jacqueline Kent Cooke has filed a cross complaint against the California lawyer who says she bloodied him with a designer purse on New Year’s Eve and spewed anti-Semitic remarks at his mother.

Matthew Haberkorn, 52, of the Bay Area, told the Daily News he was asked to appear with his lawyer at the 19th Precinct stationhouse on the Upper East Side Thursday morning to receive a desk appearance ticket for his alleged role in the scuffle.

Cooke, 29, meanwhile, has been charged with assault and was awaiting arraignment in a holding cell in Manhattan Criminal Court Thursday.

“She alleges something happened around the corner that wasn’t on the video, but nothing happened,” Haberkorn said Thursday before turning himself in.

On Wednesday before turning herself in, Cooke claimed to have no knowledge of the incident.

“There’s nothing that happened on New Year’s Eve,” she told a News reporter Wednesday. “I was here in my apartment.”

Haberkorn’s 77-year-old mom, wife and four daughters were getting their coats at Caravaggio on E. 74th St. near Madison, when Cooke, standing behind them with her boyfriend, got impatient, and blurted, “Hurry up Jew,” according to Habkerkorn and his wife. “Hurry up Jew, I got places to be,” she added, they say.

“We all got places to be,” Haberkorn’s wife Linda Thomas said she shot back. “You know what? I take total offense at that. You’re small-minded.”

Cooke jumped the line and grabbed her coat and then stormed outside.

In the scuffle, part of which was captured on cellphone video, Haberkorn confronted Cooke over the hate speech, and she smacked him with her $300 mirrored glass purse.

She then smacked him again and flopped to the ground.

Thomas said she also went to confront Cooke, and the socialite told her, “Why don’t you use your money to get a nose job?”

Cooke sported a finger sling when she answered the door for a News reporter Wednesday and claimed she got it caught in a cab door.

In the scuffle, part of which was captured on cellphone video, Haberkorn confronted Cooke over the hate speech, and she smacked him with her $300 mirrored glass purse (the same purse she’s holding in this photo above).

She then smacked him again and flopped to the ground.

Thomas said she also went to confront Cooke, and the socialite told her, “Why don’t you use your money to get a nose job?”

Cooke sported a finger sling when she answered the door for a News reporter Wednesday and claimed she got it caught in a cab door.

“She either sprained her finger when she hit me or when she fell to the ground,” Haberkorn said.

“I didn’t touch her at all. I didn’t do anything to her boyfriend but he was holding on to me.”

But wait… this isn’t the first time Jacqueline Kent Cooke had a brush with the law… There’s also that one time in Boston!

Jacqueline Kent Cooke’s Boston Mug Shot

You’ll remember Cooke as the daughter of former Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke. Once upon a time, she was an SMU student — though she dropped out because she said her trust fund couldn’t cover tuition. An alert Front Burnervian points us to news that the heiress was arrested in Boston.

Police said Cooke pulled up her skirt to moon the officer, and then gave him the middle finger, before eventually getting into the BMW and starting the engine. … Police said Cooke then asked the officer, “Do you know who I am?” and told the officer that “$1 billion goes a long way” and that he would lose his badge, according to the police report.
