Stunned diners at the Hard Rock Cafe looked on as Avril Lavigne was dragged out of the restaurant during a meal with friends, reports The Sun.
On Wednesday night the singer was involved in a bust-up with her bodyguard after agreeing to pose for a photograph with a fan.
A fellow diner said: “Avril was just having a quiet dinner with friends when a man came over to ask for a picture.
“She seemed very happy and duly obliged. Seconds later her bodyguard came storming over and said he had to ask his permission."
“Avril looked very embarrassed and said everything was fine but the bouncer wasn’t having any of it. He grabbed her by the arm and dragged her out of the restaurant."
“I felt very sorry for Avril.”
