Brody Jenner, Avril Lavigne take bar fight to the cops
Ask Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne: Sometimes date night in Hollywood can turn bloody.
After Jenner and Lavigne were involved in a bar fight at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, leaving both halves of the famous couple with injuries, police are now involved in the scuffle.
Though no specific location has been given, the two were reportedly partying on the premises when someone started some mess with Avril. Thanks to AFI Fest, the Roosevelt has seen A-list traffic all week long, and the joint plays host to popular lounges including the Spare Room.
Brody stepped in, apparently, to break up the scuffle and wound up taking a broken beer bottle to the head. Police and emergency response were called to the scene, but the only man left standing was Brody. He declined medical treatment on site, filed a police report, then drove himself to the hospital.
"Interesting Saturday night... Just got of the hospital with a new scar on my face.. Charges/chargers!!!" he tweeted.
Avril suffered worse, she said on Twitter, claiming 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."
Jenner's manager released a statement Monday night: "Brody Jenner is recovering at home after being assaulted in an unprovoked attack this past Saturday night. He appreciates all the calls of support and well wishes. As this is an ongoing police investigation, there will be no further statements at this time."
So we wait to learn more after the police do their thing.
