Photog: MJ-Obsessed Attackers Waited for Me

11/24/2009 5:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The photographer who says he was attacked by angry Michael Jackson fans is finally telling his side of the story -- claiming his attackers were "laying in wait."

Ed Frommer: Click to watch
The photog, Ed Frommer, claims he was "jabbed" with a baseball bat several times by three MJ fans over a defamation lawsuit he filed against Debbie Rowe. The lawsuit stems from an encounter between Frommer and Rowe that went down in front of a Chinese food restaurant back in July.

Photog: MJ-Obsessed Attackers Waited for MeAs we first reported, Frommer claims three men pulled him out of his car in Lancaster, Ca and began screaming "leave Debbie alone" -- while shoving a bat in his chest.

Frommer doesn't think Debbie put the men up to it -- but he warns he's taken "precautions" to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Why oh why didn't the fans get a rope and go after Murray? The po in CA are obviously incompetent. How much time does justice for the murder of Michael Jackson take? I guess if you want to get away with murder, CA is the place go. Maybe the paps should be covering that.

No kidding, yeah how doe s it feel Mr.Pap?Being targeted, and hunted like an animal?Pretty scarey huh?Awwwwww poor hypocritical jerk!And even the photogs who are suing Debbie Rowe, you guys ask for it, come on, MJ had one of you idiots in his face 24/7, I am surprised no one got pics of him in the bathroom, or shower, you photogs are ruthless, and you are the disruptive ones, not MJ and certainly not his fans. When they say get the dam camera out of my face, then get the dam camera out of his, or her face, if you don't well you are still abusing the person, and they have a right to react.

Cautious    

I dont believe they were MJ fans gave him a jab. They are not fans of Debbie Rowe either, so I think they are nr acquaintances willing to frighten him off.

Makes matters worst really.

I never read anywhere that MJ fans gave paps a poking or a beating.
