Lana Del Rey - Photographer 'attacked' on Lana Del Rey video set

A photographer claims he was attacked with a box cutter when trying to take pictures of a Lana Del Rey video shoot.

In a lawsuit that will be filed later this week, Karl Larsen - a well-known concert photographer who regularly works for Rolling Stone magazine - that he stumbled across the singer shooting a video for 'Tropico' on the Los Angeles river by chance last June, but was confronted by three members of the production team when he started taking pictures.

According to gossip website TMZ, Larsen says in the documents that the men ordered him to stop shooting, but when he insisted he was within his rights to do so, one of them threatened to smash his camera, which is worth $14,000, and another tried to rip it from his hand.

He goes on to claim that one man then slashed his finger with a box cutter razor, cutting deep enough for him to require stitches, and another guy grabbed the camera and erased his memory card.

The photographer is seeking a minimum of $1 million in compensation against production company Black Hand Cinema, claiming they have a habit of intimidating photographers.

Representatives for both Lana and the production company have not yet commented on the allegations.
