Celebrity chef Guy Fieri has been caught on camera embroiled in a violent tussle with his hairdresser.

The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star and Ariel Ramirez had reportedly travelled on a flight together to San Francisco, California on Saturday (26Oct13) and were making their way home in a black Suv when a fight broke out.

Editors at Tmz.com caught the bust-up on tape, with footage purportedly showing an hysterical Ramirez screaming at the Tv star while punching him through the car's open door.

Fieri, who also kicks out at his employee, then slams the door and the car speeds off.

A representative for the chef has now dismissed the fight as an argument which got out of hand, saying, "A bunch of guys were messing around. Things got a little out of hand, but they're all good now."
