11. Fighting Words

Both Jonathan and Drew seem more like the loving instead of fighting type, but that didn’t stop Jonathan Scott from getting involved in a bar brawl. Just days before their 38th birthday, Jonathan was out on the town with friends, seemingly without Drew, and reportedly got in the middle of an altercation. Although his sources deny he had anything to actually do with the fight, it was Jonathan that ended up being subdued by the bouncer, after which Jonathan called the cops and claimed he had been assaulted.
