John Lydon charged with hitting woman

Sex Pistols singer is now being sued

Sex Pistols lead singer John Lydon has been charged for hitting a woman in Los Angeles last year.

In January 2007 Lydon allegedly beat Roxane Davis, an assistant producer in a reality television show the star was taking part in.

Davis claims the singer hit her because he didn’t like the hotel room he had been put in.


Lydon was charged in a civil lawsuit filed by Davis but now, according to, she is suing the Sex Pistols singer for sexual harassment and assault.

Lydon‘s spokesman said the frontman was unavailable for comment.
