THE SOPRANOS star Robert Iler has been caught up in a bizarre brawling rap after a fitness guru claimed he beat her up at a New York club last week.

The 20-year-old actor has been investigated by police and they've decided not to press charges, determining that the accuser, BONNIE KAYE, hasn't convinced them he was the man who hit her in a fight.

Iler's spokesman says, "Robert had nothing to do with this. He was at the party, but none of us know how he got implicated."

But Iler isn't completely in the clear - Kaye plans to file civil charges against the actor, who was put on probation in 2001 after he was found guilty of mugging two New York tourists.

Her lawyer says, "There was an altercation... and there will be more to come."
