(Newser) – A tip for anyone planning to attend a Tim McGraw concert: He does not appear to like it very much if you grab his pants. TMZ obtained two videos from a Sunday show in Atlanta—shot from different angles—that appear to show the country singer slapping a female audience member after she ripped his jeans. But, a rep insists to E!, McGraw didn't actually hit the fan: "Someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn't let go as he was moving through the crowd. He instinctively swatted to try and keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing!), and so he could get to more fans who were trying to slap hands with him before the end of the show. He didn't know who had grabbed him and was simply trying to keep his jeans from being torn."

McGraw has always been an arrogant azz. When he made a duet with his wife she made him sound like an amateur. He has not done a duet with her since. She needs to find a real man.

What he does or doesn't do at a concert has no affect on any of us.
