Tim McGraw
is on the offensive today after a video surfaced of him reportedly “slapping” a female fan at a recent show in Atlanta.

The country star’s rep reached out to “Billboard,” downplaying the rumors and saying it was more of a “swat.”

“He instinctively swatted to try and keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded in doing), and so he could get to more fans who were trying to slap hands with him before the end of the show,” his rep told “Billboard.” “He didn’t know who had grabbed him and was trying to keep his pants from being torn.”

TMZ posted the video this week, and the singer clearly motions at someone before making a gesture that seems to ask, “What are you doing?”

Sources at the Atlanta police department told TMZ that the woman has not filed charges and she is “the aggressor.”

McGraw then readjusts his jeans and stands tall with his hands on his hips. Watch the video for yourself and tell us what you think is going on in the comments!
