Pratt was dining with his The Hills co-star and fiancee Heidi Montag when the incident at the Beverly Hills Hotel occurred. Pratt claims Madden was angry about comments he was incorrectly reported to have made about Richie's weight. [does she have any weight?]
He tells website In Touch Online, "I was sitting having a quiet lunch with Heidi when Nicole walked in and started pointing at me and then whispering to Joel. "He storms over and starts shouting, 'You've been talking s**t about my girl.' I told him, 'Please can we not do this at the Beverly Hills Hotel. This is ridiculous.' Then he started screaming and calling me names." - the high drama continues here. At least it's more exciting then his last two CDs.
