Nick Lackey admits that he "overreacted" on a female photographer on Sunday night when he reached into the woman's car and seemingly tried to snatch her phone from her hands.
The bizarre exchange occurred in Los Angeles on March 27. According to TMZ, who has video of the incident, Nick and his wife were having dinner when he saw a woman across the street taking pictures of them from her car. The "Love is Blind" co-host made a beeline for the woman, allegedly hitting her car window and shouting a not-for-print obscenity. Vanessa was telling the woman (from the across the street) to open her car door.
As Nick walked away, the woman rolled down her window and asked him why he was "so mad."
"Is paparazzi still a thing?," he asked in a dismissive tone before reaching into the car in an apparent attempt to get the phone.
Nick then laughs at the woman and said, "Why you taking pictures of people on the street?"
The woman, who's recording the incident on her phone, tells Nick she's a photographer "looking for celebrities."
"So you found some," Nick said with a grin. "We're here, we're here."
The woman then accused Nick of being drunk, saying she could smell alcohol on him.
A separate paparazzo later saw Nick, Vanessa and another woman walking to a hotel after dinner. The 98 Degrees singer continually said, "You're still the worst, you guys are still the worst." He then flipped off the paparazzo.
On Monday, the singer addressed the video on Twitter, claiming he and his wife were being "harassed."
"Last night, after enjoying a great dinner with my wife and our dear friend, the paparazzi harassed us as we walked back to our hotel. I clearly overreacted," he wrote. "I've been in this game long enough to know that their antics are sadly part of the deal. Stupid of me. Done."
He added, "However, for TMZ or anyone else to say that I was violent or that I 'got physical' with someone is reckless and absolutely false. Once again, TMZ likes to crate their own clickbait narrative. Life's too short, we move on."
Vanessa has not addressed the incident.
