Adam Lambert Posse Accused Of Battering Man, Throwing Phone In Boystown Bar

Shots and Pringles. Lambert at The Closet before the alleged incident.
Adam Lambert rolled into Chicago Tuesday ahead of his show with Queen at the United Center on Thursday—and he immediately went into The Closet. That’s a bar at 3325 North Broadway in the Boystown neighborhood.

And, a Lakeview man told police that a member of Lambert’s posse battered him and threw his phone across the bar, prompting a police response early Wednesday.

Lambert "seemed very nice." His posse? "Rude. But they have British accents, so it's endearing," the victim said.
Chicago police confirmed that officers responded to the 3300 block of Broadway around 2:30 a.m. today where the man reported that a member of Lambert's posse grabbed his cellphone out of his hand and threw it.  The offender then fled in a vehicle and no injuries were reported.

CWBChicago contacted the victim who confirmed the incident.

"He is an expert door climber from what I saw."

“I was waiting in line for the bathroom, and this guy is hanging off of the door trim and Voguing. So I’m like, ‘well, that’s interesting’ and I took a picture of him.”

Vogue!

Moments later, a “little British man named Simon got into my face with another guy asking me what I’m doing and threatening me and saying I was prohibited from taking pictures in the bar. I had no idea who they were and I didn’t know who the guy hanging off of the door trim was.”

The victim says he soon “learned [Lambert] was. So, then I did take pictures so I’d have a record on my cloud of the people who had threatened me and who they were with. And I told the security guy that...I told him they could threaten all they wanted, but if they touched me, it would become a police issue."

Returning to the bar, the victim and his friend were group texting a mutual friend when the “little British man” grabbed the victim’s arm, pulled the phone from his hand, and threw it across the bar, shattering it on the floor, the man said.

“I used my friend’s phone and called the police. They were very helpful," but Simon and a friend left before officers arrived, the man said.

"They got into a silver Cadillac SUV. The police have photos of the car and the license plate," he said.

As for Lambert, the victim says, “He seemed to be very generous with the drinks and he is an expert door climber from what I saw. He seems to know what he's doing in those departments."

And the phone? "It was brand new. Literally, I got it on Friday. The volume button and home screen buttons are busted."

  1. Maybe asking if he minded being photographed, or finding out what the policy of the bar is on taking pictures would have been a good idea. But you didn't think of that did you? But you still kept on taking pictures huh? Not too bright.

    1. If your in public you should expect to be photographed. The Closet has no photo policy.

    3. lol your comment is laughable on so many levels....Have you been to a bar on the last 5 years?!?!? Everyone has a camera and takes pics! And let's face it Adam Lambert?!?!? His 12 minutes were up 12 years ago.

    4. It wasn't the bar staff who asked him not to take pics, it was some short guy. Note that the bar doesn't seem to figure into the story at all.

  5. Seriously poster number one? Blame the guy taking pictures? Way to blame the victim asshole. It's people like you that give the human race a bad name. By the way, the closet has no policy on forbidding pictures being taken within its premises as I've been there numerous times and I can't tell you how many times my friends and other people that I've seen have been taking pictures of each other people so nice try but please fuck right off.

    1. Admitting that you go to the Closet just reaffirms that I hate you.

  6. Lol maybe if your in a public space you assume there are cameras everywhere and it's 2017 everyone takes photos at a bar...if they didn't want those pic taken maybe they should have stayed in their hotel and not been pretentious cunts.

    1. Adam Lambert is clearly being nice here & going along with being photographed - as you can see from the pictures in the article and even the guy who had his phone thrown SAYING so. How about we just treat celebrities like human beings & stop jumping on them for no reason. That's probably going to suit Adam too

  12. Um, everyone takes pics nowadays, who the hell asks a bar if it is ok?

    ReplyDelete
  13. This British guy Simon seems to be a pretentious little Pratt and probably a hanger on wannabe, as I've heard Mr Lambert is a decent guy, shame these wannabes think they're something more than they actually are

  14. Thuggery is cool with a british accent?? Once again, more of the brainwashing... God save the inner city "cool" hoods, oh yea, and the queen too.

  15. It's really easy to be jerks when you're all anonymous isnt it. What is with that comment "In case he reads this I had to google who he is" comment? What kind of prat writes that? Why do you want to make someone you don't even know feel bad? Adam did nothing wrong. I think people should read the article properly but I understand people rarely do. Adam Lambert, who is lead singer with Queen currently touring to sold out stadiums in North America & worldwide, is a nice guy who was goofing around at the bar. He does not care who takes his photo and was happy for the guy to take his pic and to hang out like everyone else and buy drinks. There are photos online of Adam smiling at the guy taking the photo as he did a silly pose etc. It was obvious Adam was fine with it and just playing along. It was the tour manager of Queen who got over-protective and went too far. So please, stop attacking the wrong person. I know it's really fashionable to hate anyone who's made a name for themselves but I wish people would stop judging others when they don't deserve it. Adam has to put up with enough crap as it is just for being gay. Which reminds me - what is "REAL gay"???

    1. Simon is not Queen's tour manager he is Adam's.
      Queen's management have more class than to be hurling other peoples property about and grabbing their arms.

    2. If Queen had any class it would not be calling itself Queen.
