The on-again-off-again couple allegedly got into a heated argument while at the Las Vegas strip club Hustler, a source told PEOPLE: “She was mad about something she saw on his phone [and] she freaked out.”

The source claimed Harley, 31, then allegedly “lunged” at Ortiz-Magro as he tried to leave the club.

“She was restrained by his friend, but when he was walking out she took an ashtray from the table and threw it at his head, busting his nose and lip,” the source continued.

Reps for the pair did not respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment about the incident.

After the alleged incident, Harley returned home that night to find her home had allegedly been ransacked. She reportedly told authorities she believes Ortiz-Magro broke in. However, a source close to Ortiz-Magro claimed the reality star never broke in, but “busted a table while he was there because they were fighting.”
