Jessie Hughes, the lead singer of the band Eagles of Death Metal, made a shocking claim during an interview with the FOX Business Network, saying he believes the Paris terrorist attack on his band and concertgoers may have been an inside job.

Hughes said he thinks security guards at the venue may have been involved in the attack that left over 130 of his fans dead..



“When I first got to the venue and walked in, I walked past the dude who was supposed to be the security guard for the backstage. He didn’t even look at me. I immediately went to the promoter and said, ‘Who’s that guy? I want to put another dude on,’ and he goes, ‘well some of the other guards aren’t here yet,’ and eventually I found out that six or so wouldn’t show up at all.” h/t foxbusiness

Hughes stopped short of making a definitive statement out of respect for the police investigation but said, “It seems rather obvious they had a reason not to show up.”


The full interview will air on the FOX Business Network’s Kennedy on Wednesday and Thursday at 8 pm ET.
