Christina Milian

My Kobe Salad

Was Tainted with ABC Gum!!!

9/19/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christina Milian got a little something extra at an L.A. restaurant last week ... after she took a bite of her Kobe beef salad ... and allegedly got a mouthful of ABC gum.

Sources close to Christina tell TMZ ... she was out to dinner at Mexicali restaurant in Studio City ... and halfway through her salad, she felt a weird, chewy substance in her mouth.

Christina spit it out, and looked in horror as she eyed a giant wad of chewed gum. She then made a beeline for the bathroom and threw up.

We're told the restaurant comped her meal. But Christina is still freaked out about what happened, and filed a complaint with the L.A. Department of Health.

TMZ spoke with a rep for the Dept., who confirmed a complaint was indeed filed.

Christina tells TMZ, she's lookin' for a lawyer, but says, "The most important thing to me is to make sure my health is okay. Ever since the incident I have not eaten out."

11:21 AM: Mexicali owner Allen Ravert tells TMZ, “We have been here for over 17 years and always had an A rating from the health department ... We have cameras in our kitchen and didn’t see anything."

Alan adds, "Our cooks don’t chew gum. Whether there was gum in [Christina's salad] or not I couldn’t say – I never saw it.”

This is the same location where I found glass and a battery in my margarita a couple years back. Haven't been back since.

I think this is the best thing to happen for her pathetic career, it created a story so people will know she is still alive.

There's all kinds of stuff in your food bet you didn't know pizza sauces are allowed 30 or more fly eggs per 100 grams or 15 or more fly eggs and one or more maggots per 100 grams. Canned mushrooms may have “over 20 or more maggots of any size per 100 grams of drained mushrooms and proportionate liquid” or “five or more maggots two millimeters or longer per 100 grams of drained mushrooms and proportionate liquid” or an “average of 75 mites” before provoking action by the F.D.A. Peanut butter may contain approximately 145 bug parts for an 18-ounce jar; or five or more rodent hairs for that same jar; or more than 125 milligrams of grit. So gum is the least of her worries.

Yea its gross but wtf is she talking about "worry my health is ok". What does she think she got. F*ckin paranoia, people are insane today. Freakin fear instilled in everyone. Children born today will be afraid of their own shadows. Airports almost dont let people through, people in a couple of years will wear helmets just walking on the streets, it wont be enough to lock your door at night; the house will lower underground at a push of a button... crazy world.

Oh god. Calm down, Princess.
Sure, I'd be grossed out but I'd spit the gum out and forget about it after a few minutes. What an idiot.

A lawyer? Really? Over a piece of gum? Worried about your health? Come on!?! What a little diva! No wonder your career dried up the second it got started. Difficult, much? Grow up, Princess. Mistakes happen. Gross, yes. Unfortunate, yes. Need to lawyer up over a piece of Trident? No. Quit being a spoiled brat and grow a pair. This is the real world. Stuff happens. Deal with it and move on.

I have been to that restaurant many times, the food is kinda gross. It is better known for it's Margaritas. Really not surprised this happened.

Not a fan    

I don't think most people would eat out if they really knew what really goes on behind the scenes in restaurant kitchens (I speak from experience and having working in over 25 'high-end' restaurants). Luxury restaurants are also not exempt, in fact they are some of the dirtiest and grossest.

Check the bathroom before you sit down to eat, that is how you can *usually* tell how clean a restaurant is.
