Laptop-lob 'paparazzi scum' sue Denise Richards

Claim 'emotional stress' over Canada rumpus

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Two paparazzi who allegedly got on the wrong side of former Bond girl Denise Richards are suing the highly-talented actress and Playboy model, the BBC reports.

In November last year, there was a bit of a rumpus at a casino near Vancouver during filming for Blonde and Blonder, when Richards reportedly got into a scrap with the snappers and threw their laptops from a second-floor balcony, in the process doing minor damage to an 80-year-old woman and a 91-year-old woman sitting in the lobby below.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police looked into the matter, and that was the last that was heard of it - until now. Scott Cosman and Rik Fedyck have filed suit at Los Angeles Superior Court claiming Richards called them "paparazzi scum", assaulted them, and projected said laptops at the River Rock resort in British Columbia.

They're also suing Richard's Blonde and Blonder co-star Pamela Anderson, "claiming she and Ms Richards lied to authorities about the confrontation". The suit claims the pair "made repeated false and defamatory statements to law enforcement and various media outlets which were deliberately calculated to embarrass, humiliate, and ridicule the plaintiffs".

The planitiffs apparently suffered "emotional stress" and loss of income when clients subsequently ditched them. Richards and Anderson have remained tight-lipped on the allegations. ®
