Tim McGraw

Slap Victim Lawyers Up

Pay Up, Or Else

7/26/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

072514_tim_mcgraw_slap_launch_v4The woman Tim McGraw bitch slapped during a concert earlier this month has taken the first step in slapping Tim back ... with a lawsuit.

Jesslyn Taylor has hired a lawyer who has already contacted Tim's people ... and it's pretty obvious she wants Tim to ante up ... or face a personal injury lawsuit.

Her lawyer, Eric Hertz -- a Georgia personal injury attorney -- tells TMZ his client was NOT trying to grab Tim's junk when he hauled off and slapped her.  He says she was nothing more than an enthusiastic fan who was part of the show's "interactive environment" and merely wanted a touch.

Hertz says Jesslyn is furious Tim's been slinging mud at her by claiming she was aggressive ... trying to rip his jeans ... and she was thrown out of the concert as a result.  He says she feels humiliated and for starters wants an apology.

Cops told us they side with Tim and feel he's the victim.  

When you hire a P.I. attorney to contact someone who slapped you, you want one of two things: money or a lawsuit to get you money. 

We reached out to McGraw's reps ... so far no word back.

Countersuit. Then slap her again. Physically and for court costs and attorneys' fees. Then, slap her for me. Thanks :)

I hope he goes to court over this, and I hope that he files criminal sexual assault charges against her, as well as a counter suit against her worth more than she is asking for from him.

Either way, he shouldn't have bitch slapped her. He obv likes women all up on him on that way cause the stage and fans were constructed that way. It's not an accident. Ironic, he mistakingly kicked a guy out of his last concert here in paso Robles accusing a guy of slapping a woman, when on fact he was breaking up a fight b/n two woman. Tims a douche, ppl get it

Raging fancy tight pants didn't want his jeans being ripped that his stylist had already carefully ripped. We all saw the video and there was no junk grabbing. If someone nearly tipped his hat off of his head, he'd probably punch her out. I don't think fans should have to endure anything like this during a show. Do you think Ricky Martin would ever punch an excitable fan? Probably not, cause he's a nice guy who appreciates that you paid so much for a ticket.

You have the right to hit anyone who sexually assaults you, it is called self defense.

Oh well. Sucks being famous but I guess the lawsuits come with the territory. Especially considering how hard it is to get by nowadays. You are an easy target. It's best to keep ur hands to yourself Tim since you make way too much $$$.
