Melbourne, Mar 17 : Nicole Kidman's bodyguard and assistant is in the news - for beating up a paparazzo trying to snap pictures of the pregnant star.
According to the Daily Telegraph, a paparazzo - known as Jeremy- at the pic agency FlynetOnline.com was left in need of medical attention after Kidman's minder and fitness trained David Garris got into a scuffle with him on Thursday.
Some of the incident was caught on tape, and in it, Garris can be seen approaching the photog's side of the car.
According to the Daily Telegraph, after that, the images are blanked out, but the audio captures the snapper's outrage and anguish as Garris allegedly hits him, saying: "You can't (expletive) chase me, you're (expletive) with me ... I'm (expletive) sick of you guys."
Flynet.com accuses Garris of "stealing" the photog's camera.
It also showed off Jeremy's bruised and battered face.
Flynet.com reports that the police in Santa Monica are currently investigating the incident.
