This is just kind of a fun story (not really news) that I found myself drawn to because I sort of admire Nicole Richie no-nonsense attitude. Nicole was on a trip from New York to Los Angeles and a paparazzo was on the same flight as her. After landing, Nicole noticed that the man was not attending to his own daughter while trying to take a photo of Nicole, so she tweeted about it and snapped the above photos for Instagram.
Nicole’s description of events seems a little bit embellished, but let’s do this anyway: “This paparazzi (sic) dragged his poor, sweet little girl on my plane from NYC to LA. As he ran her off the plane, he dropped her ON THE FLOOR of LAX as she laid there, crying her eyes out.. Just to get his shot. #Heartbreaking #FatherOfTheYear.”
You gotta love Nicole’s spunk, right? Obviously, this dude did not book a flight to Los Angeles with his daughter in tow just so he could take photos of Nicole Richie. He was probably merely on the same flight and saw an opportunity to make a few bucks at his usual profession since he was already carrying his massive pap cam with him. I doubt he tossed his child — who was probably merely throwing a toddler tantrum — onto the floor, but the guy should have been attending to his daughter instead of snapping a photo of a celeb. Whatever the case, it’s still funny that Nicole did this to a pap.
