Chris Martin is not our favorite person in the world, to say the least. That is why we usually find ourselves supporting people who are against him. In this case, we are on the side of a paparazzo who was run over by Coldplay’s frontman earlier this year and who is now suing the famous singer.
In January this year, the photographer in question, Richard Perry, was part of a traditional pap ambush with some colleagues of his, waiting for Chris and Gwyneth to leave their home so they could get some pics.
As Martin was driving out in his Jeep, according to Richard, he made a sudden swerve just to make sure he hit the photographer. He then simply drove away.
According to the lawsuit, Chris Martin has shown, “a significant history of repeated and ongoing violent acts against entertainment news people.”
If it was anyone else, we would have commented with a simple boo-hoo.
