Band blog labels photographers at LAX airport 'unruly'

Guns N’ Roses have written a blog claiming that frontman Axl Rose was involved in an “unprovoked attack” with photographers at Los AngelesLAX airport on Wednesday (December 10).

The MySpace blog, posted on Myspace.com/gunsnroses, counters a report on US gossip website TMZ.com which reported that a photographer has video footage of Rose “punching him in the head”.

The Guns N’ Roses blog from the band’s official page stated that Rose “was unhurt last evening when he was accosted by an unruly group of paparazzi” at the airport.

It was explained that Rose was “approached by a group of unchecked and unruly photographers who became aggressive with the singer and female members of the travelling group”.

An unnamed photographer told TMZ.com that the altercation started when paparazzi members tried to take pictures of a woman walking with Rose.

It was claimed that the photographer, an employee of the National Photo Group, was on the receiving end of an attack and that the the incident was captured on video – which has not been released.

Rose was en-route to Taipei, Taiwan to kick-off Guns N’ Roses‘ tour of Southeast Asia.
