Travis Barker Video -- You Gotta See This

2/22/2010 10:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained crazy video of Travis Barker and his friends threatening paparazzi outside a Calabasas restaurant -- spitting at the photogs, hitting the camera and, allegedly, slashing a photog's tires.


In the video, Travis starts out by screaming, "Where's your homeboy?" As we first reported, Travis got into it with a photographer on his way into the restaurant -- but neither of the two photogs in the video are that guy.

The photogs claim one of their phones was stolen. When one of the photogs confronts Travis' friends about the phone, a guy can be heard saying, "F**king snitch fa**ot motherf**ker, no one has your gay ass phone."

After a few more minutes of arguing, and the arrival of cops, a photog noticed his tires were slashed.

The photogs told cops they did not want to press charges. No arrests were made, but a vandalism report was taken.

UPDATE: You can read Travis' response to the incident on his Twitter page, saying in part, "Paparazzi cried like young girls when it was no longer three of them against me and my kids. Didn't they remember threatening me an hour ago? What happened to the tough guys with the cameras? It was gonna be a fair fight."

I read Travis's twitter, it is obvious he has some issues to deal with. Starting with the drugs, Travis they have you all fed up!. Next you got to deal with your anger and depression before you end up dead or in jail.

The choice is your Travis? You live the thug life all you need to do now is flash some gang signs and your a shoe in. You did more damage to your kid then the paps did.

The lawyers are going to love this, it is going to cost you several thousnd dollars to make this go away. In the end hopefully they take your kid away.

And spitting on someone is low, I bet you wouldn't have done that without your posse. Cause if you did that to me i would beat your sss and if your gang jumped in then fine beat my ass but i would make you a poor man.

Travis it is the DRUGS your taking that killed your butt buddy Grow up ya loser!

Yes maybe he did get a little out of control but we don't know the whole story. CLEARLY the video is edited for the paps favor. The decision to have his children on his reality show was by his choice. He has the right to choose when and where his children are filmed or photographed. Just because he had his children on his reality show does not mean the paparazzi gets to taunt his children while they are in public. Those children didn't choose to have their dad in the lime light and they deserve to be able to go out in public and have a normal life without a damn camera in their face evertime they walk out of their front door. I like Travis for his music and I for one don't need to see him out eating breakfast with his children. That's his business. Photographing children without the consent of a parent should be illegal just like child pornography. It's no different in my book, they are exploiting children either way you look at it.

LOL@ him whining about being photographed with his kids when he pimped them on his reality show. What a hypocrite. I bet NO ONE would have even bought this video had Travis not flipped out.. He's not even really a has-been because his band only made a few hit songs (which sucked, BTW.. total sell-out).

These celebrities use the media to hype themselves up & make money.. gain fame.. but they only want to be photographed on their terms.

Where were his kids when he was spitting and acting like a gangster? Were they watching him? It looked like he flipped off the cameraman with his kid in his arms.. yeah, I am sure he's a GREAT dad.

He's a piece of excrement.. BTW, I read his twitter. He can't even spell -- another illiterate, brain dead, celeb-tard. He doesn't even know how to spell "you're", as in "you are". Idiot.

I have zero sympathy for the paparazzi. I mean, are you freaking kidding me what you guys do is harrasment. Get off your lazy asses and get a real job and leave a celebrity who is out with his children trying to mind his business, leave him alone!

For the record, the provocation wasnt them trying to take pictures of the kids, it was when the drunk guy who was with the paps started beaking travis and asking him to fight them, IN FRONT OF HIS KIDS. Can you not understand why he wouldnt want them exposed to that? Im sure they would have had a peacful meal if all that happened was they snapped a few pictures of a family eating together, there would have been no reason for this. FIND OUT THE FACTS PEOPLE.

Don't come to TMZ, a HIGHLY paparazzi site, and COMPLAIN about the paparazzi. Counter productive much? If you don't want people filming you or taking your picture (and that includes family as well, lets be real), DON'T BECOME FAMOUS. All of this comes with the territory. Except it...because it will never change.

How long before his reps tell him to get back on twitter and apologize? Oh wait he doesn't have any endorsements so that will never happen.

We got to see Travis on drugs and it isn't pretty.

The paps are stupid, they don't want to press charges but you know for sure they are going to sue Travis.

Call the police station and tell them you want to press charges and that you changed you mind. It makes the lw suit we know your going to file a stronger case which means more money you dummies

@JM:
The drunk guy wasn't there. If Travis had issues with that supposed drunk dude, he should deal them with him and not with his 'supposed' friends.

'Gotta said, though: those photogs are REALLY NICE GUYS, 'cuz if so douchebags got me outta my own car to start so sh!t, I don't get who they are or how many they are, I get my crowbar and start BUSTING HEADS OPEN.

And then what? Those mofos even slash their tires? And they still don't press charges or do ANYTHING! Man, actually, I don't know if they've been nice or just are a bunch of PUSS!ES, but, in any case, Travis and his crew are clearly in the wrong here.

Always thought Travis was a rude @sshole. Looking at the food stamp stakepunk chumps he has in his clown posse only confirms the fact that all the wrong people died in that plane wreck.

Your a mediocre drummer, husband and father Mr.Barker

The paparazzi did provoke him. If you check out Travis's Twitter he's explains what happened. And the video is clearly edited at points where Travis or one of his friends start to actually say something that you can make out.

It's their job. Sometimes they start something to get a rise and then when they get the reaction they want, they start rolling the cameras and talking a whole different attitude just for tapes.
