And Mike Tyson had nothing to do with!
Ronnie Brown, a 25 year old model, was viciously attacked at New York hot spot Highbar earlier this week by James Leahy aka Jane Lane that left him without an earlobe!
Brown says: "I reached for my ear and it was not there. It looks like a dog mangled it."
Luckily the model was able to get his lobe reattached, but now he's worried he'll lose modeling gigs because of it.
Leahy, who is an event promoter for Aids Walk New York, was arrested and then released after posting bail. He's yet to tell his side of the story, but so far James' friends say he did it out of self defense.
If convicted the ear chomper can face up to 25 years in jail on felony assault charges.
