Nicole Richie - Richie's Maternal Instinct To Protect Family

NICOLE RICHIE has defended her decision to wage war on a paparazzo she accused of harassment, insisting the legal battle was necessary to protect her family and privacy.
The mother-of-two fought for a restraining order against Fabricio Luis Mariotto in a bid to keep photographers away from her daughter Harlow's Los Angeles school.
She settled her case with Mariotto out of court on Wednesday (01Dec10), agreeing to drop her request for a permanent injunction against him if the snapper stays away from the socialite, her fiance Joel Madden and their two kids until 2015.
Richie admits the move may have an impact on Mariotto's career but believes she had to follow her instincts as a mother.
She tells U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, "I don't want to prevent anyone from making a living, but at the end of the day, we all have to follow certain guidelines and we all have to answer to somebody.
"At the end of the day, as a mother, I have to protect my children. It's instinctual, right or wrong, you have to protect your children.
"There are certain guidelines for everyone. For you, for me, for everyone. And it has to be the same for everyone. We all have to be safe."
