Miley Cyrus has a reputation for cranking out hits - but if a new allegation against her is to be believed, her latest hit could land her in court instead of the top of the charts.

The “Can’t Be Tamed” singer has been accused of battering another person during a night out at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department told TheWrap.

The alleged altercation occurred at approximately 1:15 a.m. on Sunday, after the victim began speaking to Cyrus’ fiance, Liam Hemsworth. An argument ensued, according to a battery report filed by the alleged victim, during which Cyrus, 19, pushed the other person.

No visible injuries were reported, and no charges have been filed.

The incident is currently under investigation, according to the LAPD spokeswoman, and detectives are expected to question Cyrus over the matter.

A spokeswoman for Cyrus told TheWrap that the battery claim is “completely false and erroneous.”
