Sugababe star Amelle Berrabah is "devastated" following her arrest after fighting another girl on Sunday - but insists she is "innocent".

The 23-year-old pop star has been accused of attacking an 18-year-old girl in a nightclub in Surrey, south east England on Sunday morning.

She was partying at the Bar Med club in Guildford, Surrey in the early hours when she got into an argument with a fellow club goer. She was dragged outside by a bouncer, but continued to fight with the girl outside the club.

But speaking from America, where she joined the band after being released on Sunday without charge, she insists she did nothing wrong.

She explains, "I am devastated this has happened when things were going so well with the band. We've just had a great tour and I was just having a drink with my sister Laila relaxing on a day off.

"What happened was unbelievable and my sister got hit by one of the boys in the group.

"I am the innocent party here and the other girls should be the one punished, not me."

Surrey police said they were "continuing with their enquiries".
