Perri called police after a man tried to force his way into her car last week.
(TMZ) - "Jar of Hearts" singer Christina Perri had to fight off a wannabe car intruder in the middle of the night last week - after the guy allegedly tried to force his way into Perri's ride - TMZ reports.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ. Perri called police early Friday morning claiming she was behind the wheel of her car, waiting to pull into a L.A. building around 2 AM when an unknown male approached her vehicle and opened the driver's side door.
Perri claims the man instructed her to "move over" and tried to shove himself into the car, but she wouldn't budge, and a struggle ensued. Perri told cops she fought the man off and began honking the horn to attract attention.
The suspect eventually ran away, but not before allegedly striking Perri in the head and body a few times during the altercation. Perri said she did not need immediate medical attention.
Cops responded and are now investigating the situation. So far, cops have not identified a suspect. A rep for Perri had no comment.
Perri gained popularity with her song "Jar Of Hearts" last year and now has a song on the Twilight: Breaking Dawn soundtrack.
