Wolf 'Attacked' At Madonna Show

Singer PATRICK WOLF has accused security staff at a recent MADONNA concert of assaulting him and his boyfriend for sharing a kiss in public.
The gay British star claims he was handcuffed and "beaten up" by bouncers outside London's Wembley Arena after they threw him out for smooching his partner while watching Madonna's Sticky + Sweet tour in September (08).
And Wolf, who was bedridden and forced to take painkillers while he recovered, insists the alleged attack was committed because of the pair's sexuality.
He tells music blog EQ, "Three songs in, me and my man were kissing and there were loads of conservative straight couples around us that complained. And then the bouncers came up to me and said, 'Can you stop that? This is a family venue.' No joke...
"The bouncer said, 'You know we can do this the easy way or the violent way' and I said, 'I'm staying so you do whatever you want.' And then they just grabbed both of us. We were beaten up outside Wembley, handcuffed. These guys were like football bouncers.
"The police came and it just went on and on and on. My man's face covered in blood. I couldn't move for like a month. I had to lie in bed on painkillers for ages. They totally twisted my arm and my legs - it was just mad.
"They are currently researching the CCTV - it's just really nuts. We basically got beaten up by the police."
And as a result of the incident, the Bluebells hitmaker has vowed never again to listen to the Material Girl.
He adds, "You know it means I can't be bothered to listen to Madonna ever again - which is good because it means I have more time for better music. You live and you learn.
"You get into scraps with bouncers the whole time, but that was one step up because there were like seven of them and they just wanted to have a go because they were bored. There was a lot of quite homophobic s**t going down which I was really p**sed about seeing - it was a Madonna concert, y'know!"
