Canadian singer Avril Lavigne has revealed she was left bloody and bruised after a bar scuffle in Los Angeles over the weekend (05-06Nov11), alleging she was brutally targeted by five others in an unprovoked attack.
The Complicated hitmaker and her boyfriend, reality TV star Brody Jenner, were enjoying a night out at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel when Lavigne allegedly became involved in an argument with another woman in the early hours of Sunday morning (06Nov11).
Jenner reportedly attempted to intervene and was allegedly struck on the head with a bottle during the commotion. He later sought hospital treatment for his injuries.
Lavigne has now addressed the reports, confirming she was involved in a brawl but denying suggestions she started the altercation, which she claims left her with a black eye and a bloody nose.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com she writes, "I don't fight. I don't believe in it. To clear things up I got attacked by 5 people last night out of nowhere. Not cool. My face is f**ked. As in black eye, bloody nose, hair ripped out, scratches, bruises and cuts.
"So not OK to be abusive to others. Violence is NEVER the answer."
Jenner adds, "Interesting Saturday night... Just got (out) of the hospital with a new scar on my face... Charges/chargers!!!"
