Axl Rose

The Fight Video

12/11/2009 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Axl Rose annihilated a paparazzi at LAX the other night, connecting with a ferocious blow to the snapper's head -- and now we've got the video of the entire brutal beat down.

Axl Rose: Click to watch
Before the brawl, Axl warns the paparazzi about a photog who was allegedly getting close to a woman in his entourage saying, "touch her again, I'll break his f**king neck."

Seconds later, the woman can be seen scuffling with a photog -- and that's when Axl charges in and swings for the photog's head ... knocking the guy right on his ass.

As members of Axl's entourage tried to rip the Guns n' Roses singer away, the rocker continued to stomp and kick the man while he was on the ground.

Members of Rose's crew eventually tore him away and walked to their gate. In the footage, it's clear two TSA agents observed the fight, but we've learned they never notified airport police.

Axl has since posted an article on his MySpace page, in which the paparazzi are described as "belligerent" -- it also states Rose was uninjured in the "unprovoked attack."

It's no surprise stars are fighting tooth and nail with the paps.
This was a provoked attack 'caus the photog was touching someone Axl warned he'd protect. This was not an attack on Axls' behalf for touching his person. I myself would go crazy if the paps kept pushing me to the edge too. Again this makes a nice trashy story that keep celebs in the 'that mean ole...' box.
PAPS QUIT PUSHING PEOPLE TO THE VERGE OF BEING ATTACKED, IT'S ALWAYS THE WRONG GUY GETTING THE BLAME.
If the pap didn't do what he did Axl would have gone about his normal way without incident....

He's mad and venting because Tiger told him he was the only one. Surprised Harvey posted this story cause Tiger told Harvey that he's the only one. That's ok it's a tough thing to know you two were Tigers call girls

The pap wasn't looking and did not see it coming...otherwise it would not have happened. I can't say that I blame Axl. To have once had a great career only to see it evaporate into nothing...I'd be angry and bitter too.
