Paris Hilton is so distraught following a recent encounter with Shanna Maokler at a Los Angeles nightclub, she is taking out a restraining order against the former beauty queen.

The Stars are Blind singer is seeking the order in response to an incident early last Wednesday at the Hyde night spot, during which Moakler allegedly punched her in the face.

Hilton tells US publication Star: "I'm scared of her. I feel like I have to do something to protect myself."

The hotel heiress was talking to her former flame Stavros Niarchos when Moakler apparently approached her screaming expletives.

Hilton says: "She threw a punch in my left jaw so hard."

She then says Niarchos threw his drink in Moakler's face, but adds: "He never touched her. She was never touched by anyone."

Both women filed police reports regarding the incident, with Moakler claiming Niarchos pushed her down some stairs.

Moakler was reportedly unhappy about reports suggesting Hilton is romantically linked with her estranged husband Travis Barker.
