Axl Rose Fights Stalkerazzi Photographers At Airport: Axl Camp Issues Statement

Sadly we are living the age of Trash Media Zombies where celebrities can't even go to the airport without being harassed by stalkerazzi photographers. Do we really need photos of a celebrity going through the motions at LAX? Apparently someone thinks so and their victim this time was Axl Rose and he apparently wasn't too happy about it. The Guns N' Roses frontman got into a bit of fight at the airport on his way to the Far East to kick off the GNR tour this coming weekend.

Details are still a bit sketchy, with most the reporting about the incident originating from a LiveDaily article in which they report, "At Los Angeles International Airport, Rose got into a scuffle with a paparazzo that ended up with a few bloodied participants."

We now have Axl's side of the story from the PR firm LCO, who issued this press release: Axl Rose, lead singer for the legendary rock group Guns N' Roses, was unhurt last evening when he was accosted by an unruly group of paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

At the time of the incident, Mr. Rose was en-route to Taipei, Taiwan, to kick-off Guns N' Roses' tour of Southeast Asia including shows in Taiwan, Korea and Japan. Mr. Rose, who was about to enter a security checkpoint at LAX 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.

Mr. Rose was not injured during the unprovoked attack and was able to board his flight without further incident.
