Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has apologised after a female photographer claimed she spent the night in hospital after he kicked her camera into her face during a gig.

Chelsea Lauren posted a video to her Instagram page which appears to show Homme trying to kick the camera out of her hands during the fourth song of the band’s set, The Evil Has Landed.

She wrote: “Thanks to @joshhomme @queensofthestoneage I now get to spend my night in the ER. Seriously, WHO DOES THAT?!?”

In a later message, she said: “My neck is a sore, my eyebrow bruised and I’m a bit nauseous. The doctor released me early in the morning.”

Homme wrote on the Queens Of The Stone Age Twitter account that he was “lost in performance” and believed he had kicked over lighting on the stage.

Upon hearing that Ms Lauren was injured, he said: “I did not mean for that to happen and I am very sorry.

“I would never intentionally cause harm to anyone working at or attending one of our shows and I hope Chelsea will accept my sincere apology.”

The band were headlining on Saturday at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas concert in California when the incident took place.
