RIO DE JANEIRO – One of Rihanna’s bodyguards started throwing punches at photographers in Rio de Janeiro this Sunday as the Barbadian songstress was leaving a restaurant, local media reported while airing a video of the brawl.
The bodyguard’s fists started flying when he found a crowd of paparazzi milling around the door to the restaurant where Rihanna had dined.
The photographers, who posted a video online of the enraged bodyguard as he came out swinging, were waiting to snap pictures of Rihanna in her transparent apparel.
According to several local media, five of the photographers went to a police station intending to file a complaint against the bodyguard, but changed their minds when he said he was sorry.
Rihanna was in Brazil to give a concert Saturday on the last day of the Rock in Rio music festival.
