A video of Game spitting at a fan during a concert in Australia surfaced on the net last night (March 5). But, the rapper tells XXLMag.com that, while he did spit, it didn't actually hit the fan. And, that he only spit in retaliation to heckling from the lady and her male friend.

“This girl and her dude were at the concert, and we had a meet and greet,” he said. “It was like 100 people, plus we have to get to an after-party, so we [focused on] doing everything on schedule. You shake my hand, I sign one thing from each person and take a picture with each person. So, they wanted to hold up the line, and there’s other people behind ’em, and we got time constraints. They acting crazy, [saying], ‘we paid all this money and we can't even chill!’ I guess they wanted to chill, go back to the hotel and smoke with a nigga and be my kid’s godfather. So, security had to take them out because they got a little crazy.”

The altercation didn’t end there, though. Game adds that while the rowdy twosome was escorted from the meet-and-greet, they managed to make their way to the after-party, where they also acted recklessly.

“We go to the after-party and here are these same two people,” the Interscope signee continued. “They by the VIP [area], kind of doing the heckling shit, and throwing shit, throwing Red Bull cans. But ain’t none of it hitting me. The dude starts spitting loogies and drinking shit and spitting it. The shit started getting closer and closer to where we was at. He keeps spittin’ and finally, the fuckin’ shit hit me. So I went over and I fuckin’ spit.”

While he did admit to spitting, Game says his saliva didn't actually hit anyone.

“My spit hit the fuckin' ground," he alleged. "That girl didn’t have no spit on her. The dude didn’t have no spit on him. They just saying some shit, making a scene, and then they left.

"That video don’t show me spitting on nobody," he added. "I didn’t spit on nobody, but, I definitely tried to spit on the bitch. I just missed. But I’m not the best at aiming spit. Me, to get up and spit on somebody? I’m not doing that unless I’m provoked." —Adam Fleischer
