Comedian Mike Epps is accused of punching a former flame in the mouth after she tried to confront him at an event.

According to TMZ, police were called to the Haunted House 2 premiere after party at Lucky Strike in Downtown L.A. to investigate claims of assault. Simone Shepherd, who claims she had a previous romantic relationship with Epps, alleges the actor punched her in the face after she tried to confront him.

Shepherd called the police and filed a report, but the cops said there was no signs of injury. Epps also told police he never touched her. To prove her case, Shepherd posted a photo of her bruises on social media.

Epps claims he allegedly told Shepherd he wanted privacy because he was with his wife. Shepherd grew belligerent, throwing a drink at both of them. TMZ reports Epps asked security to escort her out of the party.


Although Shepherd claims she was in a romantic relationship with Epps at some point, the Sparkle star insists she was nothing more than a fan.

This situation can potentially get messy. Epps has been married for eight years and dated his wife a couple of years before that. So if Shepherd had a romantic relationship with Epps, she was the side chick.

No arrests were made. The investigation is on going.
