Comedian and actor Mike Epps is accused of punching a woman in the face during Wednesday night’s premiere of “Haunted House 2” in Los Angeles, Calif.
According to the victim, Simone Shepherd, Epps punched her during an after-party at Lucky Strike in downtown L.A. Epps claims to have never touched the woman. Soon after the alleged incident, Shepherd filed a police report that notes she showed no signs of injury. Later, Shepherd took a photo showing a bloated right cheek.
Supposedly, Shepherd used to work as a ghost writer for Epps and confronted him about something during the party. When he asked for privacy, he claims she grew belligerent and threw a drink at him and his wife.
Other sources claim Shepherd and Epps used to share a romantic relationship.
The case is currently under investigation.
