"Jar of Hearts" singer Christina Perri had to fight off a wannabe car intruder in the middle of the night last week ... after the guy allegedly tried to force his way into Perri's ride ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Perri called police early Friday morning claiming she was behind the wheel of her car, waiting to pull into a L.A. building around 2 AM ... when an unknown male approached her vehicle and opened the driver's side door.

Perri claims the man instructed her to "move over" and tried to shove himself into the car -- but she wouldn't budge ... and a struggle ensued.

Perri told cops she fought the man off ... and began honking the horn to attract attention.

The suspect eventually ran away ... but not before allegedly striking Perri in the head and body a few times during the altercation. Perri said she did not need immediate medical attention

Cops responded -- and are now investigating the situation. So far, cops have not identified a suspect.

A rep for Perri had no comment.

Why do they put this crap all over their ams? If you have to have ugly tattoos, couldn't you put them on your butt where no one would ever see them?

Yay. Good for her. He could have raped her and shoved her out the door if she didn't fight back. She is tiny too. That is great. I would always look around me before getting into a car, especially at night, and lock the door if anyone shady is nearby lurking.


Sometimes you feel like locking the doors just being past shady people in traffic. Why not? You can usually just hit a button and lock all the doors. Roll up the windows from the buttons.


Especially if you have a nice car or are nice looking or just a nice seeming person, you are a target. You have to always be on the lookout for these creeps if you are in a sketchy area.


Probably the combination of the honking horn and the fighting back is what got rid of him. That was smart thinking. It is like fighting off a wild beast. You need to use fear and intimadation back.


I don't know who this lady is either, but now I want to know more. I am sick of criminals getting away with things and stars acting so weak and helpless that they need court orders against love letters.

If her goal was to be as white trash as possible by having all of those gross tats all over her...she has met it.

Tattooing a woman is like slapping a bumper sticker on a BMW....
not smart, not classly, and just icky. Now she is stuck with them, and she will be 50 someday....what are these knuckleheads thinking?

Wow, old picture. If you think she has some nasty looking ink here, you ought to see the lopsided "La Mia Famiglia" prison tat chestpiece.
A couple more of these and she'll be giving the late Amy W. a run for her money. Too bad, really.

First I was thinking, WHO IS THIS PERSON? Then I thought, She looked like she could have been good looking if it wasn't for all the ugly Tatoo's all over her. Now I'm thinking Skank!!! You want a little butterfly on the Ankle, I can live with that. The large whore Tat on the lower back and worse all the Tats this woman has is just a big turn off. Nothing more sexy then beautiful clear tat free skin.

HELPFUL HINT OF THE DAY . . .
If you find yourself driving around L.A. at 2am in the morning, "KEEP YOUR DOORS LOCKED" while you drive!!!!!!
She's very lucky, and I'm glad that she's safe.
GOOD LUCK.
