According to reports, Leigh-Anne and a female friend were in the restaurant following a night out in Mayfair's Drama nightclub when an altercation took place between themselves and a male diner.

Speaking to Leigh-Anne and her friend, the man reportedly said: "If my girlfriend was here, you would both feel really intimidated’."

It has been established that the women contradicted this remark in a move which appeared to aggravate the diner, with a source saying: "And then he said something like ‘shut up’ to Leigh-Anne’s friend."

"Leigh-Anne turned around and said, ‘Don’t say that to her’ or ‘don’t be rude’ and he walked around the table and leant into her and gave her a clean slap on the face," the source added.

Chris Brown has been arrested at his LA home after spending hours locked in a bizarre standoff with police over allegations that he pulled a gun on a female visitor.

Police are believed to have found at least one gun, other weapons and drugs in the performer’s home.  He has reportedly been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

TMZ reported that Chris taunted police by saying “Come and get me”.

While hiding in his home, the 27-year-old star also used social media to share a series of videos in which he claimed he was being unfairly demonized.

Beauty queen Baylee Curran alleged that she was forced to flee the Look at Me Now singer’s house after he pointed a gun at her for looking at some jewellery which his friend was displaying.


The 2016 Miss California also claims that as she tried to leave, members of the singer’s team withheld her mobile phone in an attempt to force her into signing a non-disclosure agreement.

She told TMZ Live that her past experiences with Chris were always positive, but that this time he appeared to be out of it, possibly due to the influence of drugs or alcohol.



Controversial presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign manager has been arrested in Florida with assault charges.

A recent report from the Jupiter Police Dept said Corey Lewandowski was charged for unintentionally grabbing a former reporters arm "against her will," reports CNBC.

"Mr. Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge," Donald said in a statement. 

"He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated." The incident allegedly took place at a Trump campaign event at the beginning of this month.



It doesn't seem to be the best of times for Conor McGregor lately as one of his trainers has been arrested in relation to a deadly assault in Dublin.

The Herald reports that Jonathan Dargan, who coached Conor in Taekwondo for a number of years, is a doorman at the popular Dublin nightclub Lillie's Bordello.

The Tallaght man was arrested by Gardaí investigating the death of Patrick Mullally, who was punched over the weekend in his bid to break up an argument, and later died from his injuries.

Mr. Mullally was on his way home from his own retirement party at the time.

After being questioned for a few hours at Terenure Garda Station, Mr. Dargan was released without charge. According to the Irish Independent, he was not previously known to Gardaí and had a clean record.

It's thought Mr. Dargan ended up in a verbal row with a woman close to him on the night in question, with Mr. Mullally attempting to step in to intervene.

No other information has been released. 



World renowned chef, Marco Pierre White's estranged wife Mati Conejero has been charged with attacking her own sons, the Daily Mail reports.

She told the online mag, "There are two charges, one is one son, and one is the other. I'm not speaking to the press. When the time's right I will."

Mati was arrested in September on suspicion of bodily harm after her sons, Luciano and Marco Junior made an allegation of assault.

Luciano, 21 and Marco Jr, 20, are both models and also appear on the London social scene quite often. The couple also have a 13-year-old daughter, Mirabelle.

It is now requested that she makes a court appearance at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on March 7.

For legal reasons, the details of the assault cannot be released to the media. 


We know January is a crappy month for everyone, but former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter is making this month hell for himself.

The singer was arrested earlier this month at an infamous Florida bar called the Hog's Breath Saloon. 

According to TMZ, Nick "was originally escorted out of the Hog's Breath Saloon for unruly and disrespectful behaviour."

Mr Carter then became aggressive, "striking and choking" the bouncer after he was thrown out.

And now the bouncer, Skylar Carden, has filed a lawsuit against Nick, where he is stating the singer physically assaulted him. 

This comes less than a week after the 35-year-old publicly apologised on Twitter.

Last Saturday, he posted a tweet saying: "I am human and at times it can be a struggle to balance a healthy lifestyle. I'm not perfect and for that I am sorry."

He then went on to share another tweet: "When we fall we have to get up and keep on walking. I hope you stay by my side and continue to walk with me."


We reported yesterday that Chris Brown was accused of punching a woman in a Las Vegas night club, but now it seems the tables have turned as Chris is planning to SUE the accuser.

A source close to Chris told TMZ that the pop star will be filing a lawsuit against Liziane Gutierrez, the woman who claims he punched her in the eye.

Liziane went to the police after Chris allegedly punched her and made a statement for assault. But now, TMZ is reporting that Mr Brown is going to file a defamation suit against her today.

Chris is also said to be trimming down his friends list and won't let anyone who brings "random girls" into his parties anymore. 

It is also claimed that Ms Gutierrez also went after Jason Derulo a while back after he left her on the sidewalk outside a Hollywood nightclub. She told TMZ a week after the party that Jason tried to "get it on" with some ladies at the party, who later left crying.

We're not sure who to believe with this one!


We all know Chris Brown's history with violence; breaking all of our hearts when he assaulted Rihanna in 2009, but we thought he changed since then.

Maybe he hasn't changed as much as we thought as police are investigating the claim that he punched a woman at a Las Vegas party.

According to TMZ, the woman snuck her phone into a party at Chris's suite at the Palms Hotel. When Chris saw the phone, the woman says he "went off," yelling and shouting at her and then punching her in the right eye.

We're hoping this isn't true and Chris didn't turn back to his old ways.


Azealia Banks got herself into a little bit of bother this week. 

E! News is reporting that the rapper was arrested early Wednesday morning after she allegedly assaulted a female security guard outside a Meatpacking District nightclub, Up&Down in New York. 

The New York Police Department told E! that around 12.46am, Azealia was escaorted out of the venue "when she became verbally abusive and began to push the victim and bit the victim on the breast causing swelling and redness."

The NYPD added that "she was arrested and charged with assault, disorderly conduct and harrassment."

But what exactly got Ms Banks so riled up that she bit the woman's poor boob?!

A source told E! that the 24-year-old wasn't invited to the party in Up&Down, but arrived as a plus one. 

But when Azealia tried to go down to the party, the security guard turned her away and told her she had to have a stamp to enter. She eventually got a stamp and proceeded into the party but told the other guests that she was annoyed the security guard didn't recognise her as a celeb. 

That's how the altercation started but we're sure there was a lot of drink involved too. Azealia was released on Wednesday evening after seeing the judge. 


This morning is was reported that George Kay, Kerry Katona's bouncer husband of a year, had been arrested on assault charges. 

The serious incident seemingly took place over the weekend at the home they share and in the aftermath the reality TV star and former Atomic Kitten singer is said to be sporting bruising on her "face and arms".

And now Ms Katona, 35, has confirmed that the marriage – her third – is indeed over. 

In an official statement to New! magazine made this afternoon, a spokesman for the mother-of-five stated: “It is with deep sadness that Kerry announces the end of her marriage to George Kay.

“Her focus now will be on her gorgeous children.”

Although the pair only married last year, their relationship has always been turbulent.

They have a child together, 18-month-old Dylan-Jorge, while Kerry has four other offspring from her two previous marriage to Brian McFadden, whom she wed in 2002, and Mark Croft, her husband from 2007 until 2011.

Ms Katona and Mr Kay have been together for a little over two years. 

In the fledging stages of their union she revealed in her OK! column: "I’ve known him for 18 years, since I was at school, but I literally bumped into him one night and we’ve been together ever since.

"I’ve kept him off-radar because he’s been in jail for blackmail, which sounds a lot worse than it is, but people have said 'he’s bad news, he’s another Mark Croft.' He’s nothing like Mark."


Rihanna has finally spoken out about why she rekindled her romance with Chris Brown after he assaulted her in 2009 and revealed she thought she could change the rapper. 

"I was very protective of him. I felt that people didn't understand him. Even after," the 27-year-old singer said in an interview with Vanity Fair. 

Rihanna acknowledged in the interview that even though they don't have much of a relationship now, she still has feelings for Chris. 

"I don't hate him. I will care about him until the day I die."

The Diamonds singer is constantly linked to other men, but in the interview she said that Chris remains her "last real boyfriend."

Mr Brown attacked Rihanna inside his Lamborghini the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards and photos of her bruised and swollen face were subsequently leaked to website TMZ.

Ri-Ri also said that she blames herself as much as him for when they rekindled their romance in late 2012. 

In 2013, she asked a judge to lift the restraining order she once had against him. She felt like his "guardian angel" and he just needed "someone to encourage him in a positive way and say the right thing."

But after all was said and done, the singer revealed that she was a constant reminder to him of what he had done and she realised that her willingness to put up with his behaviour meant he would never really respect her. 

"Sometimes you just have to walk away."
