Grammy-nominated LMFAO rapper Sky Blu (real name Skyler Gordy) claims it was former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney that attacked him first during a confrontation on a flight between Vancouver to Los Angeles on Monday.

“He grabbed my shoulder, and I was like boom get off of me,” Sky Blu said in a video posted on TMZ.com. “The man assaulted me. I was protecting myself.”

A spokesman for Mitt Romney said the former Massachusetts governor asked Sky Blu, who was sitting in front of him, to raise his seat back before take off. According to his rep, the rapper responded by taking a swing at Romney. The plane returned to the gate and Sky Blu was escorted off the flight.

Sky Blu, however, says it was Mitt Romney who took the confrontation to a physical level first. Blu claims Romney grabbed him by the shoulder with a “Vulcan grip” after loudly telling him to raise his seat. “I just react – boom – get off me, you know,” Blu said, swinging a fist through the air in the video posted at TMZ. “And I didn’t take it any further than that. I just wanted the man not to touch me; that’s it.”

“I have no hard feelings toward him, Sky Blu said in the video. “I’m sure he’s a good dude. It was just an unfortunate situation.” Mitt Romney declined to press charges in the incident and Sky Blu was released from airport custody and allowed to take a later flight.

This is one of those time you just wish you had video… We’re betting there would be a lot of LMFAO watching that little catfight.
