Paparazzi Battle Bodyguards At Pitt + Jolie Home
Two paparazzi photographers have been involved in a scuffle with ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT's bodyguards, after they were found hiding in the grounds of the stars' French home.
The two men, who were wearing camouflage gear in a bid to go unnoticed, were discovered by members of the Hollywood superstar couple's security team at their rented French chateau on Thursday (24Jul08).
As they were being escorted from the grounds, one of the snappers allegedly went "berserk" and lashed out.
It is claimed he even bit a bodyguard and yelled that he was infected with Hepatitis C.
Tony Webb, head of the team guarding the stars' estate, says, "We caught the two and tried to escort them off the property and the guy's just gone berserk, thrashing out, kicking and actually biting one of the security people, breaking his finger, drawing blood and screaming that he had Hepatitis C."
The men were thought to be trying to get exclusive snaps of the couple's newborn twins before they are unveiled for the first time in a U.S. publication - which has paid $11 million (GBP5.5 million) for the pictures.
Earlier this week (begs21Jul08) Pitt threatened legal action against any publication which prints photos of his family at the French house after an ad agency offered to sell snaps of the family playing in the grounds of their home.
Pitt's lawyer says, "The family are really fed up that these people are trespassing so we're going to try to get restraining orders and use the law to do whatever we have to to keep them off the property."
