Tara Reid allegedly had a meltdown in a Los Angeles boutique.

The 'American Pie' actress is said to have started shouting erratically during a shopping spree in All Saints over the weekend when she was refused a discount.

An eye witness told The New York Post: ''She was screaming. She had to be escorted out by security. She seemed drunk.''

Tara, 37, was shopping for an outfit to wear to the Coachella music festival at the edgy brand's outlet on Robertson Boulevard when she became enraged at being asked to pay full price.

She then ''demanded a discount'', claiming she deserved it ''because of her fame''.

The blonde's representative strongly denied the claims when the New York Post newspaper asked for a comment, insisting the paper wasn't 'Team Tara' and explaining why the actress should be entitled to a discount.

The spokesperson said: ''Tara gets a huge discount with All Saints in the UK and Paris because she's a walking billboard for them.

''She gets photographed ... so they give her huge hook-ups. We told them we get a discount, and they said they'd email the press team.

''She was definitely not drunk. People love to say Tara's hammered and this and ... whoever is saying that is not on Team Tara.''

Staff at the store checked whether the actress could get a discount, but Tara flounced out empty-handed when her request was denied.
