The Boyzone star was furious after a drunk reveller made fun of his height...
The Boyzonestar is claimed by The Sun newspaper to have reacted angrily when the man made fun of his height and then proceeded to lift him up in the VIP area of the event.
The paper quoted a witness as saying: "The man was showing off to his mates after they were laughing at Ronan for being small.
"He always assumed Ronan was a lot taller and caught him unawares by lifting him up in the air for a prank."
They added: "Not surprisingly Ronan wasn't happy at first and had a few stern words. After the punter was carted off by security, he saw the funny side.He always thought he was average height."
The 35-year-old pop star, who is 5ft 8in tall, recently announced his divorce from wife Yvonne.
A spokesman for Keating stated: "Ronan was accosted by a man who was very drunk at a bar backstage. The guy picked him up and he was removed from the area by security."
