Lance Bass has laughed off speculation he was involved in a nightclub altercation with paparazzi, insisting the reports were fabricated.
The former 'Nsync star was said to have found himself in a tussle with a photographer after the singer's pal tried to block him from getting a shot as the pair exited London's Boujis hotspot on Sunday (23Aug09).
Further reports surfaced alleging Bass and his companion were involved in a brawl, sparked by a photo which depicted Bass grappling with his pal as he held him in a headlock.
But the singer has taken to his blog to set the record straight, insisting he and his companion were merely playing around when the pictures were taken.
He writes, "Here are the fact (sic). That was not a date, just a friend, I was laughing the whole time because we had no clue there would be photogs (photographers) outside this club that I had never heard of - and we were so blinded we couldn't see. A photog runs into my friend and they almost fall over each other. It is so funny what story you can create with a few pictures.
"I actually think it makes a better story if my friend and I were in a fight, he did have me in a choke hold for God's sake! I do feel a little better now that one of my friends knows what it is like to have pictures taken out of context. Sorry to ruin the fun, but nothing really dramatic happened."
