According to the New York Daily News, photographer Sandra Rose says she was approached by the singer at a recent party in Atlanta and berated about snapping pictures of him in St. Barts with his stylist, Tameka Foster-Brown.
Rose writes on her Web site: "Usher pushed my camera away as he walked by. There were no words exchanged between us and I thought that was the end of it. But he took me by surprise when he doubled back and thrust his finger in my face - his long manicured nail lightly grazing the tip of my nose.
"'Don't you dare!' he cried as 20 or so guests looked on in stunned silence. 'Don't I dare what?' I thought, as he glared at me with nostrils flaring.
"I totally ignored him as he proceeded to scream obscenities in my face. It was clear that Ush was attempting to draw me into a confrontation with him."
Meanwhile, Usher's rep has denied Rose’s claims, telling the New York Daily News, "This story is exaggerated. Usher simply asked the photographer not to take his photo. However, she made several attempts to bypass his security to snap his photo against his will. He never put his fingers in her face and was not in close contact with the photographer."
