The thug who attacked Little Mix singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock in a London restaurant has been handed a restraining order.
Terroll Lewis, 27, of West Norwood, south London, who admitted attacking the star at VQ restaurant in London, was slapped with a three-year restraining order which bans him from contacting Leigh-Anne, according to the Daily Star.
Appearing at Highbury Magistrates, he was also given an electronically-tagged curfew and ordered to pay £625 in costs, £200 in compensation as well as a £85 court surcharge, the Star reports.
The ruling came after the incident in November last year, which left Leigh-Anne “in a state of shock, embarrassment, and humiliation,” according to a victim impact statement from Leigh-Anne, who did not attend court because of illness.
District Judge Robin McPhee told Lewis: “You had gone over to the table, the conversation had clearly taken a turn you didn’t like.
“You used your size to intimidate and then slap her.
“I am aware that because of her position as a member of a particular pop group she is more vulnerable to approaches from members of the public.
“You were no more than a member of the public who had gone over to engage her in conversation.
“There was an argument. Clearly, your temper got the better of you on this occasion.
“Miss Pinnock is entitled to go out in public and eat in a restaurant without being molested in the way that you did on this occasion.
“We need to prevent that from happening for the foreseeable future.”
