flag-ultra-localIt was a Palm Beach young society lover’s spat — and it ended up in criminal court.

Real estate empire heir Matthew Reibling was sentenced to probation and anger management counseling after pleading guilty to battery this month.

He was accused of roughing up young society stalwart Victoria Racanati on a West Palm Beach street in November.

Reibling, 27, was nabbed Nov. 15 after an incident at the late-night takeout window at the Havana restaurant on South Dixie Highway.

Reibling’s dad and uncle run Taurus Investments Holdings, a real estate developer that specializes in major projects such as malls and hotels worldwide. Matthew represents the company in South Florida.

Racanati, 27, is the daughter of Jupiter multi-millionaire Phyllis Tobias, the widow of former CNBC analyst  and Wall Street big Seth Tobias.

The latter died while swimming in the backyard of his Jupiter mansion five years ago.

And Racanati was to star in a reality television series set in Palm Beach that never was picked up for broadcasting.

According to court records, meanwhile, the two then-lovers were arguing over Reibling being drunk and wanting to drive home.

He allegedly took Racanati’s iPhone and flung it to the ground — then got his hand on Racanati and pushed her to the ground, scraping her knees and hands.

There were folks waiting by the window for their food, including an off-duty Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy, who forced Reibling to stop and called 911.

Racanati told cops Reibling threatened to “firebomb” her apartment if she complained about the incident.

Racanati also obtained an injunction against Reibling that orders him to stay away from her.

“We just had to protect her from Mr. Reibling,” said Anthony Barbuto, Racanati’s lawyer.
