Lindsay Lohan has been arrested after allegedly punching psychic Tiffany Eve Mitchell at New York’s Avenue nightclub in the early hours of Thursday morning – in a row over Max George from The Wanted.
Lindsay Lohan, 26, was at Avenue in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking district, where she is believed to have punched Tiffany Eve Mitchell, 28, a blonde psychic card reader from Florida.
The flame-haired star is said to have a crush on Max George, 24, and attempted to get backstage to see the hunk after his chart-topping band supported Justin Bieber at Madison Square Garden.
Despite being banned, she met up with the boyband at the celebrity haunt, and the evening descended into chaos as Max George started chatting up another woman – not married Tiffany Mitchell – riling Lindsay Lohan.
Max George split from his fiancée, British soap star Michelle Keegan, in August. A close friend said: “Max is a single guy, he is flirtatious, and a lot of women find him attractive. He’s free to play around.”
Max George tweeted “eventual night” on Thursday afternoon.
Lindsay Lohan and a friend joined Max George and his bandmates Jay McGuiness and Tom Parker at the club.
Apparently a fight broke out near where a riled Lindsay Lohan, a very drunk Max George and the Mitchells were partying – and it is not yet clear how it involved The Wanted singer.
But Tiffany Mitchell’s husband Wayne Stevens said outside their Upper East Side home: “We didn’t know it was Lindsay Lohan and it just kind of escalated because someone else had a brawl out in there.
“The bouncer was having a fight with someone else, and I grabbed my wife right next to me and my friends had their wives.
“Then there were girls behind us and after it was over, one of them went and pushed my wife pretty hard – I don’t know why she pushed her.
“About five minutes later she comes round and tells my wife <<I need space>> and then she just punched her.
“After that, the bouncer didn’t want to help, nobody wanted to help, and they said <<there’s nothing we can do>>, so I went and called the police myself.
“A bouncer told me they’re not throwing her out because she’s Lindsay Lohan – I said <<well my wife got punched by Lindsay Lohan>>. We couldn’t understand why the bouncers weren’t throwing her out.”
He added: “My wife is still very sore, she’s very distressed, her cheekbone is aching. She’s all mindboggled right now, I’m going to take her to the doctor.”
When asked about Max George, Wayne Stevens said: “I could see there was something else going on, but we had nothing to do with it. We were just caught up in something that was nothing to do with us.”
This morning, Lindsay Lohan – still clad in her tight green mini-dress and black heels from her night out – left a Manhattan police station with a jacket over her head, while Tiffany Mitchell, Wayne Stevens and a friend were also seen leaving another precinct.
