Enjoying a night out on the town in Hollywood over the weekend, pop-star Avril Lavigne and boyfriend Brody Jenner were allegedly jumped by five random assailants outside of the Roosevelt Hotel and beaten up. Avril tweeted about the incident, saying “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—d.” She then went on to announce she had a “… Black eye, bloody nose, hair ripped out, scratches, bruises and cuts. So not ok to be abusive to others. Violence is NEVER the answer.”
This is the second pop star beatdown to occur over the last few months. As you’ll recall, friend of VH1 Gavin DeGraw was assaulted by a group of thugs after a late night in New York City. We’re not sure why hooligans have suddenly decided to concentrate their efforts on Top 40 mainstays, but we suggest that everyone who currently has a single in the iTunes Top 100 (or, for that matter, loose ties to the Kardashian clan) take extra security with them when you hit the club for the forseeable future.
