The Republican firebrand was caught indulging in public heavy-petting with her beau Quinn Gallagher, who is believed to be a Democrat, as well as vaping in the theater.
Toe-curling footage showed Gallagher rubbing Boebert’s breasts as she tugged at his crotch at the theater in Denver, Colorado.
Defending her actions, she told One America News Network: ‘I was a little too eccentric. I am very known for having an animated personality. Maybe overly animated personality.
‘I was laughing, I was singing, having a fantastic time. Was told to kind of settle it down a little bit, which I did but then my next slip up was taking a picture.’

Lauren Boebert has blamed her ‘overly animated personality’ for the sleazy behavior that got her and her lover kicked out of a production of Beetlejuice the musical
Footage also showed Boebert waving her hands, singing loudly, using flash photography and vaping before being aggressive with staff who removed her from the theater.
The controversial congresswoman initially denied the claims, claimed the vape smoke was actually from a fog machine and issued a sarcastic statement playing down the anger.
Boebert’s divorce from Jason, 36, her husband of 18 years and father to her four children, is ongoing after the couple’s shock split in May
But she made a startling U-turn late Friday night blaming her behavior on her ‘public and difficult divorce.’
‘The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I’m truly sorry’ she wrote in a statement.
‘There’s no perfect blueprint for going through a public and difficult divorce, which over the past few months has made a challenging personal time for me and my entire family.’
Speaking about the controversy, she blamed the media for drawing so much attention to her raucous behavior
She said: ‘We just had Kevin McCarthy, the Speaker of the House announce the impeachment inquiry.
‘We’re facing a government shutdown and trying to fund the federal government. We have wide open southern border.’
‘And what’s the top story? Lauren Boebert getting kicked out of the theater.’
Boebert’s campaign manager Drew Sexton said: ‘I can confirm the stunning and salacious rumors: in her personal time, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is indeed a supporter of the performing arts (gasp!) and, to the dismay of a select few, enthusiastically enjoyed a weekend performance of Beetlejuice.’
Boebert’s divorce from Jason, 36, her husband of 18 years and father to her four children, is ongoing after the couple’s shock split in May.
At the time Boerbert insisted that she had always been faithful throughout her marriage.
DailyMail.com revealed on Wednesday that Boebert, and Gallagher, a divorced father of a 16-year-old son, have been secretly dating for several months.
Surveillance footage from Sunday night’s incident shows Boebert, wearing a tight, low-cut gold dress and high heels, making a considerable fuss as she and Gallagher left – taking a selfie as she leaves the auditorium and angrily baring her teeth at staff.
She also gave ushers the finger. The Denver Post spoke to a pregnant woman who says she was sitting behind Boebert, but who was too scared to give her name for fear of MAGA-reprisals.
The woman claims Boebert said ‘no,’ when asked to stop vaping, sang with her hands in the air, blew vape smoke at her, kissed her date and took repeated videos during the show.
Boebert is also said to have told the complainer she was a ‘miserable’ person.
The eyewitness claims she asked to move seats in the intermission – and that staff at the theater said theirs wasn’t the only complaint about the erratic lawmaker.

It is not clear when Gallagher and Boebert’s relationship became romantic
The woman also told the Post that Boebert’s lover Gallagher offered to buy them cocktails as a peace offering, which she had to decline because of her pregnancy.
An incident report noted the two received a warning at intermission about their behavior.
But five minutes into the second act, security officials received another complaint about a person being loud and recording the show.
‘They told me they would not leave,’ an usher said, according to the report.
‘I told them that they need to leave the theater and if they do not, they will be trespassing.
‘The patrons said they would not leave. I told them I would (be) going to get Denver Police. They said go get them.’
Afterwards, Boebert and her smartly-dressed date were caught on camera walking off through the empty nighttime streets of Denver.
Once outside Boebert’s indignation quickly dissipates as she holds her new lover’s hand, dances coquettishly and twirls for him in the street as they make their way through the city – a three-hour drive from Gallagher’s home near Aspen and even further from Boebert’s home in Silt, Colorado.
