LMFAO's Sky Blu has updated fans on what exactly went down with Republican politician Mitt Romney and airport security earlier this month.
According to Blu, he was the initial victim of Romney during an on-board dispute.
"I look at the man, like, 'Are you serious?' And then, boom, Vulcan grip comes out on my shoulder," Sky Blu revealed in an interview. "He Vulcan-gripped me real quick. The man was sitting here and said, 'Sir, put your seat up,' and, pow, and what I did was a Vulcan-grip countermove. I learned this when I was a youngster. Bam, forehead. I went upside his head one time. That was the reaction when you touch me, especially during a heated exchange, I'm gonna have to rearrange your forehead piece." (MTV)
The incident reportedly took place on President's Day (February 15).
According to a video confessional from LMFAO's Sky Blu, it all started when he leaned his seat back while the plane was still on the tarmac ... and Romney, who was sitting behind him, started yelling at him to put his seat back up. Sky Blu claims Romney then reached forward and grabbed his shoulder ... so he slapped the Presidential wannabeen's hand away. Shortly after, authorities boarded the plane and escorted Sky Blu off the flight ... and the other member of LMFAO got it all on tape. (TMZ)
Despite the rapper's claims, Romney's camp had a different perspective on the incident.
Former Massachusetts Governor Romney's spokesperson Eric Fehrnstrom claimed that Blu became "physically violent" when asked to put his seat up but never mentioned whether or not Romney put his hands on him. Fehrnstrom said: "Governor Romney did not retaliate." After hearing of the incident, the pilot returned the plane to the gate and had the passenger and his bags removed. Romney was not injured.

Blu is part of the electro-hop group, LMFAO.
LMFAO is a grammy-nominated electro-hop group from Los Angeles, California that consists of DJ/rappers Redfoo (Stefan Gordy) and Sky Blu (Skyler Gordy). Both artists are related to Berry Gordy--Redfoo is the son of the Motown Records founder and Sky Blu is his nephew. (Wikipedia)
