LOS ANGELES: TARA Reid is alleged to have had a meltdown in an LA clothes shop - because they refused to give her a discount.

The American Pie actress is said to have started shouting at shop assistants at the All Saints store on Robertson Boulevard when they told her she had to pay full price. She is alleged to have “demanded a discount” claiming she deserved it “because of her fame”.

An eyewitness told a reputable US newspaper: “She was screaming. She had to be escorted out by security. She seemed drunk.” The 37-year-old actress had been shopping for an outfit for the Coachella Festival when the altercation is alleged to have taken place.

Tara’s rep defended her entitlement to a discount saying she’s a “walking billboard for the brand” and denied claims she was drunk. The spokesperson said: “Tara gets a huge discount with All Saints in the UK and Paris because she’s a walking billboard for them. She gets photographed ... so they give her huge hook-ups.”–TS
