Terri Seymour attacked by wild fan at American Idol finaleMay 21st, 2009 - 4:55 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 21 (ANI): Television presenter Terri Seymour was attacked by a wild fan after the filming of American Idol finale.
The former girlfriend of American Idol judge Simon Cowell was left gasping, after the woman twice her size pounced on her and tried to choke her.
“It was all so sudden…. Very scary. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. She came over to me and said, ‘You’re that girl from TV, right?” the Mirror quoted Terri as saying.
“And I said, ‘Yeah.’ The next thing I know, this woman had me in a headlock and tried to choke me,” she added.
Terri was saved as the security arrived quickly, and dragged the huge woman away from her.
“The woman was double her size and if she had been on her own she would have had no chance against her. Thankfully her producer was with her and managed to drag the woman off and alert the police,” a source said.
The attacker was taken into custody, charged with battery, and later released on a bail of 52,700 dollars. (ANI)
