LOS ANGELES — Canadian singer Avril Lavigne and her boyfriend are recovering after being attacked outside the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood early Sunday.

Celebrity news Web siteTMZ.com reported that five people attacked Lavigne and The Hills star Brody Jenner.

Lavigne, 27, whose hit singles include “Sk8er Boi” and “Girlfriend,” addressed the incident on Twitter. “I don’t fight. I don’t believe in it. To clear things up I got attacked by 5 people last night out of nowhere. Not cool...” Lavigne posted, adding that she had suffered a black eye, bloody nose, hair ripped out, scratches, bruises, and cuts.”

Jenner, 28, the stepbrother of the celebrity Kardashian siblings, tweeted “Just got of the hospital with a new scar on my face.”

No arrests have been made, although a spokesman for Los Angeles Police Department told Reuters they were aware of a “skirmish outside in that area on Sunday morning.”
