A video has surfaced online of Queens Of The Stone Age's frontman Josh Homme kicking a photographer in the face as she was shooting him.

The photographer, Chelsea Lauren, posted a video on her Instagram of the incident which shows a smiling Homme kick his foot back at her as he walks away. Homme's behaviour throughout the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas Concert was decidedly erratic; as well as kicking Lauren in the face, Homme sliced his forehead open with a knife and invited the crowd to boo him, calling them "retards".

Here's the video of the incident in question.

Speaking to Variety, who have pictures from Lauren's camera before and after the incident, she described how Homme "looked straight at me, swung his leg back pretty hard and full-blown kicked me in the face. He continued performing, I was startled, I kind of stopped looking at him, I just got down and was holding my face because it hurt so badly."

Lauren has said that she intends to file a police report today. Homme has made no comment on the incident so far.
