The guards surrounding Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in Africa have threatened to become physical if needed to keep the Jolie-Pitt's privacy. It appears they have followed through on that threat with at least one member of the paparazzi.
The story - according to TMZ - details that a security guard at the Namibian compound may have shown that the paparazzi have more to fear than just the animals in the African outback Sunday.
A source tells TMZ that a daring snapper - who had snuck onto the property and was taking photos of Brad and Maddox, was seriously manhandled by a guard.
Here are the details:
The source tells TMZ that although the paparazzi have been lurking all around the compound, peeking out from bushes and perching in trees, the snappers had, for the most part, respected the compound's boundaries.
Sunday, however, a photographer literally tunneled his way in by digging a ditch to get on to the grounds and was taking pictures of Brad and Maddox, who were at play in the yard.
"The bodyguard literally beat the crap out of this guy," a source tells TMZ, adding, "Brad and Maddox were right there watching."
Front row seats for an alleged paparazzi beat down for little Maddox?
It will be interesting to see if any of the other paparazzi were in a position to get photos and if those will actually be released.
