Cincinnati native Nick Lachey apologized on Twitter after a video of an incident between him and a paparazzi was posted on TMZ on March 28.
TMZ shared a video of the former Kings Island performer and 98 Degrees member appearing to approach the car of a paparazzi member, who was taking photos of him on the street.
According to TMZ, “Nick and his wife, Vanessa, went out to eat at Mastro’s in Beverly Hills Sunday night … after seeing a photog taking pics of him from her car, he made his way across the street, allegedly punching her window and calling her a ‘p**** mother f*****.’ Vanessa was yelling for her to open her car door.”
If you can’t tell, “p**** mother f*****” equals “pussy mother fucker.”
The paparazzi then rolls down her window and Lachey is shown reaching into her car and attempting to grab her phone from her hands. Watch the full video here.
A few hours after the video was shared, Lachey posted on Twitter apologizing for his actions, statin, “I clearly overreacted. I’ve been in this game long enough to know that their antics are sadly part of the deal. Stupid of me. Done.”
Last night, after enjoying a great dinner with my wife and our dear friend, the paparazzi harassed us as we walked back to our hotel. I clearly overreacted. I’ve been in this game long enough to know that their antics are sadly part of the deal. Stupid of me. Done.
