Axl Rose's reps have issued a statement about the scuffle that took place between the Guns n' Roses singer and a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday night. The statement reads, "Mr. Rose, who was about to enter a security checkpoint when the altercation took place, was approached by a group of unchecked and unruly photographers who became aggressive with the singer and female members of the traveling group. [He] was not injured during the unprovoked attack and was able to board his flight without further incident."
A witness captured the scene on a video that seems to contradict that description. It shows a cursing Rose running over to confront a photographer, then landing a solid punch to the shutterbug's head.
