New York, Feb 3 : A British paprazzo has resigned from his job, citing Britney Spears and the dangerous 'frenzy' that surrounds her every move as his reason for his decision.
Nick Stern left a Los Angeles based photo agency, Splash, warning the high speed car chases could kill the pop star.
"I don't have a problem with good celebrity photography, but there are ways of doing things - you can do things in a civilized manner," the New York Daily News quoted Stern, as saying.
The 43-year-old claims the biggest threat came from the high-speed convoy of photographers' cars and motorcycles that follow Spears' every move through Los Angeles.
"Directly or indirectly, Britney is going to come to some horrific end, or a member of the public will," he said.
"The paps are completely out of control. It's not unusual to have 20 or 30 cars pursuing her at any one time. It's become acceptable to drive at 80 mph down the wrong side of the street into oncoming traffic," he added.
