A new video obtained by a celebrity-gossip website appears to show country music star Tim McGraw slapping a female fan in the face during a Sunday concert.
The footage shows McGraw walk out into the crowd as he sings “Truck Yeah.” About half way through the clip, a woman is seen making contact with the country star. The video then captures him striking back.
Another video shows the incident from a better angle:
TMZ, which obtained the footage from the Atlanta concert, spoke to McGraw’s representative about the incident.
“Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go as he was moving through the crowd,” the unidentified representative told the celebrity-gossip website. “He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing!), and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show.”
This post has been updated with new video.
