Washington, (ANI): The photographer accused of sparking Madonna"s riding accident has denied the claims, saying he was not clicking pictures when the incident happened. The Queen of Pop was rushed to a hospital in New York with minor injuries and bruises after she fell off her horse while riding in the Hamptons on April 18.
Her publicist Liz Rosenberg held paparazzi responsible for startling the singer"s horse by taking surprise photographs. But snapper Thomas Hinton claimed even though he was the only one taking photos, he had left before the 50-year-old took the tumble.
His pictures allegedly showed the superstar in an enclosed paddock with the paparazzo taking shots behind a gate. “If I had startled the horse, I would have gotten pictures," Contactmusic quoted him as telling TMZ.com.
