Adam Lambert Gets into Brawl with the Paparazzi
Judging by the photos that have surfaced online, Adam was out at the beach, planning to have nice day all for himself.
Somehow, the paps managed to track him down, even if he was in disguise, decked in shorts, a tank top, oversized shades and a huge straw hat.
In fact, the only thing that could have given him away for the glam rocker fans know on stage and in magazines was the fact that he had a mani-pedi in black polish.
As they started taking his picture and provoking him, as Adam himself says on Twitter, he lost his temper and got into a minor scuffle with one of the photographers.
While some pictures show that Adam grabbed the guy – either in an attempt to take his camera or to force him to leave – they don’t say who won, that is, if he managed to get away from the unwanted attention.
In the aftermath of the minor incident, Adam took to his Twitter to explain what had happened – and to point out that this kind of intrusion in his personal space is simply not ok.
“Eeew paparazzi killed my peaceful afternoon on the beach! #howisthisok?” Adam asks in his first tweet. He then goes on to explain what happened.
“They’re real good at provoking, but there ain’t any pics or video of the b.s. they spew out... Haha well... I lost my temper for a sec but wow it felt great lol MIAMI!!!” the singer further says.
Then, after seeing the pictures the photographers managed to snap of him, he tweets again to say they’re “hilarious” and to jokingly apologize for the unglamorous straw hat.
“Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. - I was attempting a disguise- clearly failed. Hahah,” Adam notes on the same note.
JustJared says the incident took place on September 16, on South Beach, Fla., but doesn’t mention who started it or how it ended. Neither does it say whether the paparazzo in question is thinking of pressing charges, as they usually do in such cases.
