The 25-year-old singer admits she received the injury while 'drunk as a skunk'
Leigh-Anne Pinnock suffered a painful-looking drunken injury over the weekend.
The Little Mix singer, 25, took to Snapchat yesterday morning to show fans a bruise on her cheek, just below her eye.
With a make-up free face and a messy ponytail, Leigh was lying in bed with a pal and chatting about the night out.
When she lamented: ‘My face hurts,’ friend asked what happened. Leigh then replied: ‘I fell out of a car, drunk as a skunk.’
Eep. Leigh-Anne’s Snapchat came hours after reports emerged that she was recently ‘attacked’ by a man at a London restaurant.
A source told The Sun: ‘He kept saying: “If my girlfriend was here, you would both feel really intimidated.”
‘And then he said something like “shut up” to Leigh-Anne’s friend. Leigh-Anne turned around and said: “Don’t say that to her,” or: “Don’t be rude.”
‘And he walked around the table and leant into her and gave her a clean slap on the face.’
Leigh-Anne was reportedly left in tears by the incident, with the witness adding: ‘He was really aggressive. He seemed like he had been drinking.
‘She was laughing about it at first but then she completely broke down, crying. Her friend was comforting her.
‘Leigh-Anne kept saying she wanted to go home. She walked off hysterically crying. Her friend had her arm round her. She looked a mess and she was crying her eyes out.’
