mekhi_cutphifer_01.jpgER doctor and 8 Mile star, Mekhi Phifer, and an attractive date had a perfectly civilized dinner at Arnie Morton’s steakhouse in Burbank. As they were leaving, Mekhi’s date went outside to smoke and Mekhi paused to speak to someone. When Mekhi arrived outside he actually saw a man SPEAKING TO his date! The enraged actor grabbed an empty beer bottle from a patio table and SMASHED the startled guy right in the face, flattening him! The bleeding victim was hustled off to the emergency room and Mekhi and his horrified date scrammed in a hurry. The next day the victim returned to the restaurant and he had stitches all over his face. He explained “I was just asking that woman for a cigarette.” We predict a lawsuit is brewing here.

    what a jerk. he needs to go to a$shole rehab. who knows what really happened, but if its true that the man who had his face smashed in was only asking for a cigarette..not being weird or harassing her,……if i were that chick, i would dump him.

    Before anybody can really make a solid statement, lets see what the other guy looks like and his date.
    If the guy had any brains to start with he’d dump the chick because any chick that smokes is stupid.

    It’s in Burbank, duh, but it sounds so much sexier to say Studio City.
    Why do people get so excited about chain restaurants anyway?

    Not just a lawsuit..but possible jail time. That was assault with a DEADLY weapon. What a dumb idiot to do such a thing.

    I hope that any woman who was considering dating this guy will wise up. He can easily turn on a woman too! I’ll bet he’s one of the types that beats the hell out of someone and then apologizes profusely. I hope they throw the book at him.

    Kitty Carlot sounds like a racist as do several posters on this thread.
    Why is it when black celebs mess up they represent their entire race but when white guys fcuk up they only represent themselves?
    Narrow minded biased b!tches.
    That said, he sounds like he was tweaking, as many WHITE actors do.

    I was with a friend and her 4-month old baby at the Griddle Cafe in West Hollywood. When we were leaving, she was pushing the stroller out the door. Meki was coming in and not only did he refuse to move out of the way for the stroller, he kicked the stroller hard out of his way. Then he sneered at my friend when she yelled at him and looked like he was going to punch her. The baby started crying and he snickered and walked away. Absolutely true story.

    I know someone who was at the incident that JC is referring to and saw everything. JC has it WRONG! The “victim” in question was a very big man who was very, very drunk. He was outside the restaurant stumbling around when another actor (not Mekhi) came out with a woman. The drunk man started getting in the woman’s face and reaching for her. The other actor was trying to protect the woman, which led to some punches thrown in defense. Mekhi came outside shortly after this started and tried to help keep the drunk man off of the actor and the woman. He did NOT hit the guy with a beer bottle. There was absolutely no bottles or weapons of any kind. The guy did end up a bloody mess, but it was not Mekhi’s doing. And from what my friend said, the drunk guy had it coming.

    Art chic, isn’t that the truth. Not once when Sean Penn, David Hasselhoff, and the guy who beat Heidi Fleiss act like uncouth cavemen are they referred to as “ghetto”. It’s just a hot headed white man. And it seems that they aren’t to quick to be fired.
    And what the hell is Isiah Washington having a personal argument with one person on a set got to do with Black people being trouble makers. Maybe they’ll start firing us black troublemakers when they start ditching no talent hacks like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, the latter who shows up on set late, drunk and high on a regular basis. If that’s not causing trouble, I don’t know what the hell is.
    And anonymous, Omar Epps didn’t do a damn thing, but he “seems” like a hothead? And you draw that conclusion based on what other than your obviously general assumption that every black man is a threat to you somehow. You folks need to shake out your sheets, give them a good pressing and get thee to a cross burning with a quickness!!!

    But when will you be sick of the “hostile” white men that you vote into the office of the Presidency? This whole country is goin to hell in a handbasket. And it definitely isn’t because of black people.

    If this story is true why isn’t he in jail. Why hasn’t the main stream press pick this up. I think the story is a bunchof garbage.

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
