Relentless paparazzi photographers go all out to try to snag the best photos to get top dollars. Photos of some celebrities can instantly bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars per photo, and often times the families of celebrities are caught in the middle.
Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner are no strangers when it comes to being stalked by paparazzi. The two women gave emotional testimonies before the California Assembly Judiciary Committee in support of a bill that would increase paparazzi penalties and broaden the definition of harassment to include photographing a child without the permission of a legal guardian.
"I love my kids. They're beautiful and sweet and innocent, and I don't want a gang of shouting, arguing, law-breaking photographers who camp out everywhere we are - all day every day - to continue traumatizing my kids," Garner said.
"We aren't just whiny celebrities. We're moms who are just trying to protect our children," Berry said.
West, who at first tried to ignore the photographer, ended up scuffling with him as he tried to seize his camera.
The Los Angeles County district attorney's office confirmed that it won't be prosecuting West over the incident. The photographer sustained minor injuries.
Some states are pushing to pass laws that protect celebs and limit the access of paparazzi, but the photographers say the restrictions violate their First Amendment rights.
