Despite reports, Colin Farrell not involved in street fight

Truth rating: 0

“Farrell in London club brawl,” screamed a headline in a post by the British OK!,” which claimed “reformed bad boy” Colin Farrell was “embroiled in a brawl outside a London club” over the weekend.

The site noted that outside the famed Café de Paris nightclub, Farrell “got involved in a heated exchange with a fellow partygoer,” and “the altercation threatened to turn violent when the other man lunged at Farrell, but his pals managed to pull the Irish actor away and avoid it turning into a full-blown fight.”

Other sites had similar headlines including, “Colin Farrell Turns Drunken Street Fighter In London,” and even showed photos of the star allegedly getting into fisticuffs. 

While Farrell has successfully battled the bottle, he did not battle anyone in London.

The person pictured in these inaccurate accounts is not Farrell, who was nearly 5,500 miles away in Los Angeles.
