Man sues Rod Stewart claiming he broke his nose with a football

Mostafa Kashe claims he received injuries during 2012 live show in Las Vegas

A man who attended a Rod Stewart gig is claiming that he left with a broken nose after the singer kicked a football at him.

Mostafa Kashe is taking legal action against Stewart after reportedly being injured at the gig in Las Vegas. The New York Post reports that a performance at Ceasar’s Palace in October 2012 included Stewart kicking footballs out into the audience, as he does at all of his live dates, with one hitting the man in the face and breaking his nose.

However, as he claims in court papers seen by the publication, Kashe states that the ball that he says hit him was kicked with “sufficient force so as to potentially injure patrons”. He has filed a suit against both Stewart and his promoter, AEG Live, at Clark County Court​ in Nevada​.

“Stewart has significant experience in the sport of soccer and experience in kicking soccer balls, having previously tried out for a professional soccer team in the UK and regularly playing in amateur soccer leagues since his youth,” the complaint said.

Kashe is seeking damages for lost wages, attorney’s fees and cosmetic damages worth over $10,000 (£6,000).

Meanwhile, Stewart’s former Faces bandmates recently dismissed his suggestion that the band would be getting back together in 2015. Stewart previously said that both he and Ronnie Wood would likely play with his old band in 2015.
