H.I.M. Frontman Claims To Have Been Beaten By Ex

reports that HIM frontman Ville Valo was almost forced to cancel his band's first major American tour after his ex-girlfriend beat him up.

The 30-year-old rocker was given a black eye by his former partner and suffered a burst ear drum at the hands of the unnamed woman.

He says, "She was a tough girl and she wasn't afraid to show it. She once punctured my ear-drum by screaming so loudly in my ear that it bled from the inside. If the hole in my ear had have been any bigger, I'd have had to go for surgery and our band would have missed their first major American tour.

"Violence is always pretty bad but it doesn't get any worse than being beaten up by a girl, does it?"

I feel bad for him.
I can't get into his music at all but that has to be humiliating, besides if he fought back whose side will the police and media take?...The girlfriend or the known drug using, once suicidal, frontman for a European rock band?....
