Terroll Lewis — a 27-year-old bodybuilder who attacked Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock last year — has been given a restraining order following an incident at London's VQ restaurant. Back in December, Leigh-Anne shared a photo of her bruised face with the caption "my face hurts" on Snapchat after Terroll attacked her in the restaurant; and he's now been banned from going near her for three years.
The vlogger — who has over 100,000 followers — told Highbury Magistrates Court he only meant to "push" Leigh-Anne's face; but since CCTV footage apparently showed him striking the star, he was given a three-year restraining order, an electronically tagged curfew, and £625 (approximately $800) fine.
The victim impact statement read on behalf of Leigh-Anne — who wasn't in attendance at the hearing due to illness — explained that the attack "did not leave any cuts, bruises or marks." It continued: "The boldness of the guy to assault me like that left me in a state of shock, embarrassment and humiliation."
District Judge Robin McPhee ruled: "Miss Pinnock is entitled to go out in public and eat in a restaurant without being molested in the way that you did on this occasion."
