Michael Jackson Fans

Beat Me

11/24/2009 11:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124_debbie_rowe_exd_tmz_02-1A photographer who is suing Debbie Rowe claims he was attacked with a bat by three men who were yelling, "Leave Debbie alone."

Photog Ed Frommer
is suing Rowe, claiming she defamed him by "lying" to police by saying he intentionally scratched her face and struck her. Frommer has sued Rowe for $7,500 in small claims court.

Frommer told cops on Sunday at 11:15 PM in Lancaster, CA, three males began following him in two different cars and ran him off the road. Frommer told police they got out of their cars -- one of them wielding a bat and poking him in the chest. They were yelling, "Leave Debbie alone."

Frommer doesn't think Debbie Rowe is behind it, but believes there are rabid Michael Jacksonfans out to get him.

This guy seems way too aggressive and this time he pisssed off the wrong people.
That's what he gets for stalking. If he lived to talk about it,they did not hit him hard enough.

I don't condone violence but it's really hard to feel sympathy for any pap snapper. Snappers tend to be the rabid ones, no doubts about that.

They were in it for the money    

I don't condone violence, but why does the media need to hound Debbie Rowe? You guys didnt hound before Michael died, what makes her so important now? She had children for him and was paid quite well and still is paid quite well, Like Prsicilla Presley, this woman will NEVER marry again because of the money being floated her way. Lancaster is a long azzed way from Los Angeles, there's no news going on in Lancaster/Palmdale. Personally I think she could tackle anyone who got in her face and they'd have more than a sratch!

MJ had security from the group NAMBLA. I don't know if they were actually fans of MJ's or if NAMBLA or just doing their job.

WTF?! How can he sue Rowe if he "doesn't think she is responsible"?! I am mucho confused! God, people have no shame! They will do ANYTHING to get their hands on MJ's money. So sad.

Gee, too bad they didn't use the bat on him. Maybe he would change his occupation. He deserves everything he gets and hopefully more some day. They photo guys are leaches.

MICHAEL JACKSON FANS DON'T DO THIS. SOUNDS LIKE ANOTHER PAPARZZI TRYING TO GET ANOTHER STORY. SOUND LIKE IT WAS SOMEONE ELSE THAT ROWE KNEW NOT ANY MICHAEL JACKSON'S FAN. WHY WOULD ANY FAN WANT TO DO SOMETHING FOR HER. SOUNDS LIKE FROMMER SHOULD HAVE LEFT HER ALONE AND NOT KEPT PUSHING. IF SHE DID HAVE THESE INDIVIDUALS DO THIS THEN SHE SHOULD BE ASHAMED AND ADMIT TO IT. HARD TO BELIEVE BECAUSE OF WHAT U HEAR ABOUT PAPARZZI'S AND WHAT THEY DO TO GET A STORY.

While I don't condone violence or unlawful acts, I think some MJ fans have just about had it with untruthful press about Michael. No one should act out as these 3 appear to have (according to the Pap) but after losing Princess Di to hounding, and then Michael, maybe it is time to change the way we look at what is really news and what lines should not be crossed.

Swarming Debbie was crossing the line and I have not blamed her one bit for her outburst that day. Good for her!

And rabid? Why is that adjective always used for dedicated fans of Michael's?
