No word on paparazzi in police log on Madonna fall
Tuesday 21 April 2009
A police report on Madonna's fall from a horse is silent on whether paparazzi scared the animal, as her spokeswoman has said.
The police report says only that the pop superstar "was a victim of a fall from a horse" Saturday and was taken to Southampton Hospital in New York State with "unknown injuries." It's unclear whether she told police anything about the circumstances surrounding the accident.
The 50-year-old singer was treated for minor injuries and bruises, according to her spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg.
Rosenberg has said paparazzi leaped out of some bushes and startled the horse Madonna was riding in Bridgehampton, a haven for celebrities and the wealthy on Long Island's eastern end.
Photographer Thomas Hinton has said Madonna's host, Steven Klein, was the only photographer around when the singer fell. Hinton said he made pictures of Madonna from a public road before and after the accident but wasn't there when she fell.
Rosenberg said yesterday she was unsure whether Madonna spoke to police about the incident but the singer stands by her statement.
"Isn't it kind of ridiculous that (photographers are) saying that they're not there when there are all of these pictures?" Rosenberg asked.
The 'Material Girl' and 'Like a Virgin' singer also was thrown from a horse in England in the summer of 2005, cracking three ribs and breaking her collarbone and a hand.
A couple of months later, she and talk show host David Letterman rode horses outside his studio as part of her appearance on CBS' the 'Late Show with David Letterman' on CBS.
