According to the rep, Simone got into a heated conversation with Mike’s wife at the premiere, and when Mike stepped in to separate them, he punched Shepherd in the face.

Although cops say Simone showed no signs of injury at the party, she says her jaw got swollen later that night … which is when she took the selfie below.

Shepherd has been in several short films and the reality series “Reality Hell.”
