Paparazzo Seriously Injured in Spears Madness

11/13/2007 12:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Miraculously, the victim was released from the hospital last night with only a tire mark on his arm. Not a single broken bone, and no internal injuries. Lucky guy!

TMZ has confirmed a paparazzo on a motorcycle has been injured while chasing Britney Spears.

The accident, first reported by That Other Blog, happened around 5:00 PM tonight, roughly a mile from the Beverly Hills Four Seasons Hotel. Several cars were in line chasing the pop princess when one hit another photog on a motorcycle, throwing the rider off the bike and onto the road. We're told the rider was seriously injured and transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. His current condition is unknown.

UPDATE: We're told that the injured person is what is known as a "spotter," and does not actually carry a camera. He will follow the star and tip off other photographers to her whereabouts. We hear he's fairly new to the Britney beat, only appearing on the scene in the past several days.

How exactly would one explain to the children how their daddy (or mommy) died? "Sweetie, I have to tell you something. Daddy (or mommy) was chasing a girl who eats out all the time, and loves her starbucks, and well, he died for that."

Geesh!!

Its K-Feds fault . IF K-Fed wouldnt hire people ( with Britneys money ) 24/7 to keep a eye on Britney then maybe this guy wouldnt be in the hospital fighting for his life.

BOGIE, YOU'RE AN IDIOT & APPARENTLY NOT A PARENT. JUST BECAUSE SHE'S 27 YRS OLD & HAS 2 CHILDREN DOESNT MEAN SHE DOESNT NEED GUIDANCE & HELP RIGHT NOW & NOT FROM LAWYERS OR AGENTS OR THE LIKES OF THOSE MONEY HUNGY PEOPLE.

PARENTS SHOULD BE THERE NO MATTER WHAT, DO A FRIGGIN INTERVENTION, GET HER OUT OF THERE & HELP HER. LET HER TAKE HER FITS BUT AS PARENTS IT'S OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE THERE, NOT SIT BACK & COUNT THE $$

I don't understand how this story turned into one of talking against Kevin or even talking against Britney (and I am NO fan of hers). Someone is seriously injured. These paps do what they do because we go to all the sites, buy the tabloids, and watch celeb TV shows. We demand it and they deliver it.

You can say that you think it's good that this poor guys is seriously injured but if we stopped demanding the dirt - and face it , you all love it or you wouldn't be here - maybe things would settle down.

However,I do think this is more proof that she should not drive with her kids. It's just too dangerous right now. She can do what she wants without them but putting them in danger isn't smart and it's clearly dangerous out there right now.

I hope the guy is OK and no one else is hurt.

You people can be really cruel and somewhat twisted.
