Paris Hilton is accusing Shanna Moakler of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" of punching her in the face early this morning in an unprovoked attack at a Los Angeles nightclub.

The 25-year-old heiress arrived at Hyde Lounge just before 2 a.m. today, when Moakler "shouted a barrage of obscenities and attacked her," Hilton's publicist, Elliot Mintz, told

"She called me right afterwards and told me that she did not need to go to the hospital, but that she would file a police report," Mintz said.

Mintz says Hilton filed a police report at the Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood Division. Police confirmed to The Associated Press that a report had been filed concerning Hilton, but didn't offer other details.

Moakler's representative, Susan Madore, told that she had not spoken to her client yet, and could not confirm or deny the report.

"I can't say for certain why this happened, but Moakler is known to be upset by rumors that Paris is dating Travis Barker," Mintz said. "Those rumors are not true. They are not dating."

Barker -- the former Blink 182's drummer -- and Moakler filed for divorce in August. They previously starred in the 2005 MTV reality series "Meet the Barkers."

Mintz is apparently referring to a piece in the Sept. 13 issue of People magazine headlined, "K-I-S-S-I-N-G Travis Barker & Paris Hilton," in which Hilton and Barker were reportedly spotted holding hands on Sept. 7 at Hyde Lounge -- the same spot where Hilton and Moakler had their alleged confrontation.

"A match made in reality-TV heaven?" the magazine asks. "Four days later she and the rocker (who recently split from wife Shanna Moakler) made out at N.Y.C.'s Butter, says an onlooker. Still, Hilton's sister Nicky tells Scoop the two are 'absolutely not' dating. (Barker's rep had no comment.)"

A subsequent article on People's Web site headlined, "Paris Hilton, Travis Barker: Makeout Party!" cites sources who say the heiress and the drummer "snuggled" at New York City club Butter on Sept. 13 -- and, the following night, were spotted "making out" at the New York City nightclub Marquee.
