We're pretty sure that if you stopped the douchey behavior and just went to work every day to support your family the paparazzi would quickly lose interest!
"Now, I find myself unemployed and without the ability to secure non-entertainment related engagements because the enormous Media interest, cameras, reporters and public interest makes it impossible to carry on normal daily activities, let alone find, secure and maintain a job with an employer who is willing to be exposed to the daily Media intrusions that has impeded by life."

We think your 15 minutes are more than over! Quit hanging on!
