Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock has reportedly been attacked at a restaurant in London.
The star was relaxing with friends and grabbing dinner when a man approached her to give a “clean slap on her face.”
“He was really aggressive. He seemed like he had been drinking,” a source said.

The alleged incident occurred when the man came up to Leigh-Anne’s table at London’s VQ restaurant and started hurling abuse at one of her friends – so the 25-year-old jumped to her defence.
“He kept saying, ‘if my girlfriend was here, you would both feel really intimidated,'” one diner told The Sun.
“Leigh-Anne’s friend wasn’t going to let it go. She kept saying ‘no I wouldn’t, no I wouldn’t’. And Leigh-Anne started going, ‘Maybe I would, maybe I would.’
“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.”
Other diners told the publication that they looked on stunned as they heard the smack which left Leigh-Anne’s hair “stuck to her face.”
“She looked completely shocked,” another source said about the incident.
“She was laughing about it at first but then she completely broke down crying. Her friend was comforting her.
“Leigh-Anne kept saying she wanted to go home. She walked off hysterically crying.”
The musician’s friends then supposedly called the police and they all left the restaurant together. She did not need to go to hospital.
