Terri Seymour – Simon Cowell’s ex – was assaulted after attending the “American Idol” finale last night.
It happened at L.A. Live – a complex that includes the Nokia Theatre where “A.I.” was taped. A 33-year-old woman walked up to Terri, asked if she was Simon’s girlfriend. The suspect allegedly attacked her and attempted to choke her.
The suspect – Janice Thibodeaux – was booked on felony battery. She’s being held on $52,700 bail.
We’re told Terri refused medical treatment. She was escorted out of the complex by three cops.
Thibodeaux is twice Terri’s size, weighing in at 200 lbs.
UPDATE: TMZ spoke with Thibodeaux’s brother and sister who told us Janice is “not crazy” and this is “way out of character” for her.
