(Newser) – Call it chair-gate? Miley Cyrus and fiancé Liam Hemsworth allegedly got into a Hollywood scuffle this weekend over a bumped chair, TMZ reports. The reported victim says a friend bumped into the Hunger Games heartthrob's seat at an event, sparking a war of words that climaxed with Miley butting in—and hitting the victim in the face. Now police are investigating, but a witness tells TMZ the punch is pure fiction.
