Britney Hunted by Crips and Bloods?

2/11/2008 9:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The gang of shooters chasing Britney Spears all over L.A. might be infiltrated by some folks who have actually shot ... a gun or two.

Rush & Molloy report that the paparazzi pack on Spears' trail now includes members of the Crips and Bloods, mainly because it's a full-out war out there. "I've heard stories of fights, of car tires being slashed, cars being blocked in," says one ex-snapper.

Indeed, says one photo-agency head, "whoever muscles their way to the front gets the best picture." Says another, "It's too dangerous ... She goes through a yellow light, you go through a red. People break laws."

McCartney and Mills – Court Showdown Begins


Paul McCartney and Heather Mills showed up to court in London on Monday, where Mills could be after as much as $150 million of the ex-Beatle's loot.

But today, it's Macca who's crying poor, saying that he didn't make any money during their marriage. Heather says his tour made tens of millions, but Paul claims that it lost $6 million. Of course, Paul is worth $1.6 billion, so there's clearly some coin there.

Reports have suggested that Mills intends to cross-examine Sir Paul herself, and to conduct her legal defense on her own.

Party Favors: Heidi's John Just a Plumber ... "Jaws'" Scheider Dead at 75 ... Was the Writer's Strike Worth It?


Heidi Fleiss says that the, ahem, gentleman (John Owen) who was with her when she got popped for pill possession last week, was her plumber, according to the Daily News, and that he "didn't even have enough pot to roll a joint." Fleiss also says she'll produce the scrips for the meds in question. ... Actor Roy Scheider, best known for his roles in "Jaws" and "The French Connection," died Sunday in Little Rock, Ark. No cause of death was given. ... After all the sturm und drang caused by the Writers Guild strike, the L.A. Times wonders, more thoughtfully than most, was it worth it?

I seriously hope none of you morons has anything to say about her driving skills when the article clearly addresses the paps who chase her around town and not her.

Bloods and Crips after Britney, please that sounds dumb. Roy Scheider rest in peace, bro. Heather Mills deserves $l.oo dollar and a kick in the ass. Let her hobble off on one leg. Heidi, I've seen dead people that look better.

I loved Roy Scheider. Especially in the movie All That Jazz, in which he came to peace with dying. It was a great movie. He made a lot of movies excellent. Peace be with his family.

"I've heard stories of fights, of car tires being slashed, cars being blocked in."

Do your homework TMZ...Roy Scheider suffered from cancer for the past several years. His wife has said that he died of complications from a staph infection (New York Times). There is this little thing called the internet that allows you to search for info!!

Not that you should believe everything you read/see (clearly everything on TMZ is taken with an awfully big grain of salt)!!

Why can't people just back off? I hope that new law goes into effect, prohibiting the paps from getting closer than a car length away from ANY celeb. Otherwise something really bad is going to happen. The guy whose foot got run over deserved it. What do you expect when you're right on top of someone? He's lucky it was only his damn foot!

This must really be a shocker for Paul - this is actually his FIRST divorce

Wonder what life must have been like for Linda during their marriage?

There was never any public controversy

To #8...TMZ isn't the only media outlet saying that. I heard it on the local news this morning and nothing was mentioned about a staph infection. They said he died of some sort of cancer.

#8 and #12 - lots of times infections like that are the immediate reason a person with end-stage cancer dies, but they are still basically dying of cancer. A healthy person won't die of a garden variety staph infection, but a person who's already just hanging by a thread is vulnerable to anything. The infection was the immediate reason, but that's how terminal cancer works.

Bloods and Crips, cmon this is silly, she is not Gang Worthy! Cmon, pleassseeeeeeeeeeeeee move on..........

Also, I may be the one person who believes Heather Mills was abused, I am sure, outside of his public persona, lies a dark side to Paul M. The huge gigantic fame and drugs does give one a "dont even think you can mess with me mind set" and Heather and Paul were in-love, (probably more of a sexural relationship that at first felt like love) but that 'wore off' and things got ugly. What Heather should do, is STOP trying to prove to the world her side, that just wont ever happen. Take what is offered and go live a nice life with your daughter... and best wishes to her.

HEY GOVERN ARNOLD....ARE YOU OUT THERE? WHAT THE HECK...WHEN WILL LAWS BE MADE...THIS IS JUST GROSS! TO ME HOLLYWOOD USED TO BE ABOUT CLASS AND GLAMOUR...IT'S SO DIRTY, CHEESY AND LOW LIFE NOW. CELEBRITY WORSHIPPING IS WAY OUT OF HAND AND LAWS NEED TO BE MADE TO KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE. SEE THE WORD "PEOPLE"....IT MEANS CELEBRITIES INCLUDED...SINCE THEY ARE PEOPLE JUST LIKE THE REST OF US.

TALENT SURROUNDS YOU AND I EVERYDAY...YOUR NEIGHBORS, CO-WORKERS, RELATIVES & FRIENDS....HAVE THE POTENTIAL AND TALENT JUST AS THE CELEBRITIES DO...IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT THOSE CELEBRITIES EITHER MADE THE EFFORT TO PUT THEIRSELVES OUT THERE...WERE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME...OR HAD OPPORTUNITIES.

THEY ARE NOT JESUS! SO, STOP SLOBBERING AND FREAKING OUT EVERYTIME YOU SEE THEM! I CRACK UP LAUGHING AT PEOPLE LIKE TOM CRUISE...KATIE HOLMES,..VICTORIA BECKHAM...DAVID BECKHAM....WHO REGARD THEIRSELVES SO HIGHLY....AS IF THEY ARE ABOVE OTHER PEOPLE...IT'S HILARIOUS TO WATCH...AND IF YOU CAN PUT YOURSELVE IN THAT EQUAL POSITION WITH THEM....YOU WILL LAUGH TOO!!!

GET A LIFE...RESPECT YOURSELF...DO NOT PLACE THEM ON A PEDASTAL....AND JUST ADMIRE THEM IN A HEALTHY RESPECTABLE WAY. SUPPORT THEIR TALENT. PERIOD.

I HOPE THAT THE GOVERNMENT WILL FINALLY STEP UP AND PUT LAWS PROVIDING SAFETY IN PLACE. MAYBE THEN PEOPLE LIKE BRITNEY CAN LEAD A LIFE OF FEELING LIKE THE REST OF YOUR PEOPLE.
