Queens of the Stone Age Frontman Accused of Deliberately Kicking Female Photographer in Face

Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has been accused of deliberately kicking a photographer in the face during a performance in Los Angeles on Saturday night, a move the photographer says left her in the ER. Video of the incident posted on Facebook by the photographer, Chelsea Lauren, shows Homme meandering around on stage before apparently kicking her in the head and knocking her camera out of her hands. Lauren told Variety she was taking photographs from the front of the stage when Homme approached. “The next thing I know his foot connects with my camera and my camera connects with my face, really hard. He looked straight at me, swung his leg back pretty hard and full-blown kicked me in the face,” she was quoted as saying. “It was obviously very intentional,” she said. She said she spent the night in the hospital and intends to file a police report because if she doesn't, he may do it again. “That’s not right,” she said. Homme, who has previously been sued for allegedly assaulting an autograph collector at a concert, has yet to comment on the video.
