Good for her! This man has clearly taken this WAAY too far!
Nicole Richie has been forced to take out a restraining order on papparrazzo Fabricio Luis Mariotto on behalf of her daughter, Harlow, because the man has gone to EXTREME lengths to photograph the celebrity child!
According to Richie's petition for a protective order:
"[Mariotto] drives erratically around my children and others, yells, screams and attempts to scare us so that he can photograph our reaction. He trespasses on preschool property to photograph the children. He has often left his car in the middle of a busy street just to chase me for a photograph. His predatory behavior caused and continues to cause severe emotional distress as I fear for the safety of my children."
Holy shiz! That is absolutely horrific!
What is this man thinking?! He's doing that to A CHILD.
Luckily, Mariotto must legally stay at least 100 yards away from Nicole, fiancee Joel Madden, as well as both children - Harlow and Sparrow - and their preschool.
As he should! He should be ashamed of himself!
Hopefully this will keep other paparazzi from displaying similar reckless and harassing behavior!
Good for you, gurl! Thank goodness you stood up for your rights!
