Sex Pistol Accused of Firing Fist at Woman's Face

6/4/2008 7:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Forget the Queen, God save Johnny Rotten if the brutal and despicable allegations against the punk rock legend are true.

According to a lawsuit filed moments ago in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the Sex Pistol singer allegedly beat the crap out of a female assistant and called her every horrible name in the book after the taping of a television show in 2007.

In the lawsuit, Roxane Davis claims Rotten, real name John Lydon, "cocked back his fist ... and punched her in the face" when the rocker was forced to stay in a room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel that didn't share a door with his other assistant ... a dude named Rambo.

Davis says both Rotten and Rambo unleashed a verbal tirade, calling her a "fat f**king c*nt, f**king c*nt, and fat f**king whore."

Davis, who was an employee of the show Rotten was working on, says she reported the incident to her supervisor, "but the complaints fell on deaf ears."

But get this -- Davis admits the company did give her one warning about Rotten: "Under no circumstances was anyone to touch Rotten's hair."

So far, TMZ has been unable to contact Rotten for comment.

Malcolm MacLaren created hype from Great Britain, This guy was scared of "The Ramones" when they first hit London. Total wannabe punk legend, people forget the real beginnings of Punk/Glam. It didn't happen becuz of Malcolm MacLaren.NY Dolls, Patti Smith, Television, Blondie, Richard Hell and Lou and John Cale producing from the velvets, iggy too......sorry if I left anyone out.

Damn, with a name like "Rotten" what did you expect?! He needs to be casterated! There is no excuse for that kind of behavior........drugs or no drugs!

His potty mouth sounds like someone that frequents TMZ and badgers everyone. We are all familiar with Jean Summers, Irene Gracie (just a couple of her aliases)!!!!!!!!

Well...she probably IS fat. While no one should be called a c**t, he's probably just calling it as he sees it. Is he gay?

I have to say that in my professional capacity I have worked with and dealt with both John and Rambo and honestly can say that they are the most decent, funny guys ever. I have worked under extreme pressure with them both where they could have "lost it", but never have.
I laughed when I read this! There is no way that they would have used that language to a woman, especially a well rounded woman!
Take it from me. TRUE
