Shanna Moakler, Paris Hilton Have Dustup
Moakler and Hilton file police reports after facing off at an L.A. nightclub
Tensions between Paris Hilton and Shanna Moakler reached a boiling point early Wednesday morning at Los Angeles hot spot Hyde Lounge, resulting in both women filing police reports, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Both Hilton and Moakler accuse the other of battery in separate complaints filed at the Hollywood division of the Los Angeles Police Department, an LAPD spokesperson told PEOPLE Wednesday. Details of the allegations were not disclosed.
One eyewitness tells PEOPLE that Hilton was at Hyde with exes Paris Latsis and Stavros Niarchos while Moakler was at the bar with Dancing with the Stars star Cheryl Burke.
At around 1:30 a.m., the clubgoer says, “You could hear a collective gasp around the place – Stavros had an empty cocktail glass in his hand and Shanna was standing there wet.”
According to the witness, Moakler got napkins from the bartender to dry off, then left with Burke and came back 10 minutes later with police, who walked through the club with her, but didn’t take any action. (Through her rep, Moakler says at no point at the venue did she receive assistance from police.)
Moakler’s publicist, Susan Madore, tells PEOPLE Moakler and Hilton exchanged words, and Niarchos pushed Moakler down some stairs, bent her wrist back and poured a drink over her head.
“She was not drunk,” Madore said. “To my understanding there was no fight, there was an exchange of words that lasted 12 seconds.”
Hilton’s rep, Elliot Mintz, says Moakler struck Hilton: “(Paris) said she was having a conversation with Stavros and the lady came out of nowhere shouting obscenities and struck her on the side of her face by her jaw and then continued to shout at her.”
Mintz would not comment on the allegations against Niarchos. A rep for Niarchos could not be reached.
Tensions between Hilton and Moakler began when Hilton was spotted in a lip-lock with Moakler’s estranged husband, Travis Barker, at a New York club last month.
At the time, Moakler told PEOPLE she felt betrayed, but added, “In order to maintain a positive atmosphere for my children I’ve decided not to exacerbate the situation by commenting on each new aspect of Travis Barker’s personal life.”
In Las Vegas for a party on Sept. 30, Moakler told PEOPLE of her ex and Hilton, “I wish the happiest for both of them. I’m closing the door and moving forward. I’m a mom. I’ve got three kids. I’m a role model.”
Barker, who starred in the MTV reality show Meet the Barkers with Moakler filed for divorce from his wife on Aug. 8.
On Wednesday, Barker himself had an accident: The drummer broke his arm while shooting a video for a new song, “When Your Heart Stops Beating” with his band Plus 44. Per doctor s orders, Barker is to stop using his right arm for eight weeks.
