Miranda Lambert may be the wrong person to get into a fight with, after all. The country singer reportedly got into a brawl recently where she ended up emptying a bowl of salad in a woman’s lap while eating out at a Nashville steakhouse.
On Sunday, while dining at Stoney River Steakhouse, Nashville, the singer, who was accompanied by her mother and a family friend, had quite an aggressive reaction when a couple on a neighboring table started to gripe about trivial matters.
Sources close to the country star told TMZ that “an older man started beefing with Miranda’s buddy, and things started spiraling out of control”. It started when a member of the singer’s party was verbally attacked in the men’s restroom “with a wisecrack about millennials and their phones”.
The issue then escalated after the man from the restroom came into the restaurant and went up to the singer’s table to continue the argument. The man reportedly “came up to Miranda’s table and started screaming”, with further reports claiming that the singer had to be restrained. This is what eventually led to the country singer dumping the salad bowl onto the man’s wife’s lap. It was allegedly done to prove a point. The singer hasn’t commented about the matter as yet.
The police were consequently informed about the brawl, but by the time they reached the steakhouse, Lambert and her party had left, so no formal complaint was lodged about the issue.
Fans would know that the singer has never been one to run away from confrontation, given how she handled the success of her own song, ‘Drowns The Whiskey’, saying it went to number one because she sang with “a dude.” “Yes, I had to sing with someone with a penis to get a number one,” the 35-year-old songbird said in an interview last November for The Washington Post.
“It is interesting that I haven’t had even a Top 20 in a long, long time,” she said. “And then it goes number one because it’s a dude. But you know — if we went and looked at how many singles or records were sold for the Top 10 songs right now, I’d probably triple it on record sales. So it doesn’t matter.”
The native Texan later clarified that her problem wasn’t with Aldean personally, adding that her issue was with the industry as a whole. “I do like this person, Jason Aldean, a lot,” the songstress explained. “So it was a great song with an old friend.”
