El líder de la banda Queens of the Stone Age Josh Homme ha sido culpado por una fotógrafa de darle una patada mientras se encontraba haciendo su trabajo durante un concierto.

Según informa Variety, el grupo se encontraba tocando en el concierto anual de la radio de Los Angeles KROQ cuando, según puede verse en un vídeo facilitado por la fotógrafa, Chelsea Lauren, Homme le da una patada mientras está tocando.

Lauren asegura que la agresión fue "obviamente intencionada". Incluso apunta a que el líder de la formación sonrió después de la patada.

Homme ha lanzado un comunicado este domingo alegando que "no sabía que había sucedido y lo siento mucho. Nunca causaría daño intencionalmente a nadie que trabajara en uno de nuestros conciertos y espero que Chelsea acepte mis sinceras disculpas".

Lauren ha contestado en Instagram que "el ataque no está bien de ninguna forma, no importan las razones. El alcohol y las drogas no son excusa". La fotógrafa denuncia que nadie del grupo haya contactado con ella.

Thank you everyone that has reached out with supportive messages. A small update, as I'm being flooded with questions: My neck is a sore, my eyebrow bruised and I'm a bit nauseous. The doctor released me early in the morning. Here are three images. Two of them as Josh looked at me, smiled and then kicked me. The other one is later after he cut his own face with a knife. I was in the pit in tears - and he just stared at me smiling. Assault in any form is not okay, no matter what the reasoning. Alcohol and drugs are no excuse. I was where I was allowed to be, I was not breaking any rules. I was simply trying to do my job. I hold nobody accountable for this but Josh himself. KROQ has nothing to do with this and I will always support them. The irony is someone had thrown an ice cube on to the very slick catwalk before the QOTSA set. I was afraid that one of the band members might slip and hurt themselves so, when the lights went dark, I used my arm to wipe down the runway so nobody would hurt themselves. Thank you to @variety for their immediate concern and care with this matter. As of now, nobody from QOTSA has reached out to me. #queensofthestoneage #QOTSA #JoshHomme
