Looks like Adam Lambert did not take the advice we offered to Miley Cyrus this week.
Following that singer's tantrum at the sight of a paparazzo, THG said we understood how irritating those losers can be, but celebrities also must learn to expect such annoyances as part of the world in which they've chosen to live. The alternative is to give these parasites exactly what they are looking for: a story.
Lambert has learned this lesson the hard way, as the former American Idol finalist has been accused of battery.
The incident in question took place yesterday in Miami, as Adam attacked a photographer... who then filed a report with the Miami Beach police around 10:30 p.m.
In documents obtained by TMZ, the victim claims Adam grabbed his backpack "where the camera was placed" ... and "wrestled [the photog] to the ground forcefully." There were no visible marks of any kind on the cameraman.Cops will review the evidence and then decide if the case is worth turning over to the State's Attorney, who could choose to prosecute Lambert on a misdemeanor battery charge that could lead to a year in prison.
The odds of this case getting anywhere near that far? About as high as Glenn Beck attending the Rally to Restore Sanity.
Following the confrontation, Lambert owned up to his actions on Twitter and wrote: "I lost my temper for a sec but wow it felt great lol... I attempted to grab a camera, no punches were thrown and no one was on the ground.... It was literally harmless. If embarrassment is a crime- thats all I'm guilty of."
Now, it's your turn to weigh in. Whose side are you on in this feud?
