LATEST: Paula Abdul has a quick-thinking photographer to thank as she prepares to fight an assault charge - she now has a picture to prove her claims. The former pop star-turned-American Idol judge claims she suffered spinal cord injuries as the innocent victim of a club brawl at Xenii in Los Angeles. And now a picture showing Abdul passed out on the floor as her ex-boyfriend DANTE SPENCER and security guards scream at each other is being used as part of the police investigation into Abdul's claims. Some revellers have mocked the fallen pop star's allegations, claiming she made up the assault charges after she was refused access to the trendy club.
