Vinnie Jones was involved in a brawl with his Magic Boys co-star Tamer Hassan outside a La hotel last week. Jones, 45, and Hassan, 42, were thought to be close friends, as they have both been involved in the local Us football team Hollywood United.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "Me and Tamer had words and a bit of a scuffle like a lot of blokes do on a weekend after a drink and a curry. We're making a movie together next week. It'll all be forgotten about by then." »
