Paula Abdul assaulted at a party, suffered concussion, spinal injuries

Paula Abdul filed a report with the LAPD on Tuesday about an assault at a party that happened Sunday and reportedly left Paula injured.

An LAPD lieutenant told Us Weekly the story:

“At 9 p.m. April 4, Paula Abdul came into the Hollywood Station to fill out a police report involving an incident at a party at 1 a.m on April 2. She said a man at the party grabbed her by the arm and threw her against a wall. She claimed to have a concussion and spinal injuries. She told officers that she sought her own medical treatment and that she would agree to have her injuries photographed at a later date.”

According to Us Weekly, Paula reportedly “ran into former CAA agent Jim Lefkowitz” at a party, and he “took offense to Abdul’s ‘smirky attitude,’ and after a heated discussion, the agent ‘accidentally-on-purpose bumped into her’ so hard that Abdul ended up sprawled on the floor.” Paula’s ex-boyfriend, Dante Spencer, “rushed to Abdul’s defense and punched Lefkowitz in the face, our witness says.” He later “received stiches for a cut below his eyebrow,” according to the magazine.
