Adam Lambert Tangles With South Florida Paparazzi, Reps Quiksilver

The hat that started it all.
Adam Lambert is already in South Florida before his sold-out Sunday performance at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood -- and he's already getting in trouble. Knowing that the guy is a controversy magnet from the review of his Houston performance last week, it's not surprising that photographers were swarming him Thursday on Miami Beach. According to TMZ, the singer was accused of misdemeanor battery by one of the photographers who approached him, and photos of the incident suggests that some mild fisticuffs occurred.

Judging by Lambert's account of the events on Twitter, the biggest concern of the day was the goofy Quiksilver straw hat he was wearing at the time. This should not put Lambert's performance in jeopardy, right?

From Lambert's Twitter:

More awkwardness on the beach here. We will monitor this situation closely.
