The X-Factor Australia judge Redfoo has been glassed at a pub in Sydney's eastern suburbs in the early hours of Thursday morning, according to witnesses.
The attack occurred at the Golden Sheaf Hotel in Double Bay just after 12.30am and left the singer bleeding from a cut to his head, according to those who were in the pub at the time.
Police said officers were called to a hotel on New South Head Road early on Thursday morning following reports of a glassing.
Police will allege a 21-year-old man approached the 38-year-old singer in the hotel and threw a glass at him in an unprovoked attack. Redfoo was believed to be in a private area of the pub at the time.
The glass struck Redfoo above the right eye, cutting his face. He was treated at the scene by paramedics.
The attack left patrons who were in the hotel at the time stunned.

Police say the younger man attempted to run from the hotel, but was stopped by security guards who detained the man until officers arrived.
The younger man was arrested and taken to Waverley Police Station and charged with malicious wounding.
He was granted conditional bail to appear at Waverley Local Court on September 24.
Redfoo, whose real name is Stefan Kendal Gordy, is best known for being part of electronic dance music rapper duo LMFAO which went into hiatus in 2012.
He also dated tennis star Victoria Azarenka from 2012 until earlier this year.
