Angelina Jolie’s security roughs up paparazzi in India
Bodyguards protecting Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on Saturday physically assaulted a reporter outside a hotel in India’s western Pune city where they are staying,reports said.
Indian TV channels showed footage of a bodyguard grabbing the reporter, Sam Relph’s throat, outside Hotel Le Meridien and pushing him.
Relph, a reporter with a British news agency, is covering the couple’s visit to Indian city.
‘I was taking a picture of the couple when one of the bodyguards caught me by neck and squeezed my wind pipe and said that he would kill me, if I took pictures again,’ an upset Relph told Times TV.
The bodyguards were angry that security had been breached on Friday when the media managed to take pictures of the couple leaving the hotel.
Jolie and Pitt along with their three children are in Pune for a month-long shoot of the film ‘A Mighty Heart’. The movie is based on the real-life story of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl who was assassinated by radical Islamic terrorists in Pakistan.
