He had been filmed appearing to slap a female fan during a recent concert, but his rep is downplaying the footage.
On Sunday, he had been doing a performance at Atlanta, Georgia when he had been walking towards the crowd,
when reports suggest McGraw turned on a concertgoer after she grabbed his manhood.
His publicist told TMZ.com that the incident wasn’t as bad as it seemed.
“Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go as he was moving through the crowd,” the rep said.
“He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans, which they succeeded at doing, and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show.”
