One of Rihanna’s bodyguards was reportedly involved in a physical altercation with a London photographer. Apparently the photographer got too close to the singer while she was making her way out of Whiskey Mist Nightclub in London over the weekend.
Rihanna had already jumped into her waiting car when the bodyguard took issue with one photographer, who failed to move back from the singer’s vehicle. It remains unclear if the photographer was knocked out by the hit.
In video footage of the clash, obtained by TMZ.com, the bodyguard, who has not been identified, is seen swinging at the unnamed photographer, punching him to the ground. It is not known if the photographer sustained any serious injuries in the altercation. Rihanna has been working on new material during her stay in the English capital city.
I have mixed feelings about this whole situation, as a Bodyguard I would not have had her exit the location that way, I cannot tell by the video if bodyguards were sent to clear a path for her, at the same time the Bodyguards were telling the paparazzi to step back and make way for her. It seems as thogh the paprazzi tried to get closer to the vehicle when she was alreay inside which for a Bodyguard is a Sin to allow that! By now it is well known by paparazzi that Bodyguards are there to provide security/safety for her so they sould keep their distance or risk getting punch! We have to keep in mind that the Bodyguards don’t know if this guy is a legit photographer or someone trying to hurt her.
