Russell Brand's Guards Accused of Tiger Park Attack

10/22/2010 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Russell Brand sat and watched as his bodyguards beat the crap out of four news photographers in the middle of a wild tiger sanctuary in India today ... this according to the photogs.

The four photogs -- employed by the AP, Reuters, Agence France-Presse and the Hindustan Times -- claim they were inside a jeep, following the comic through the wild animal park ... when two bodyguards from Brand's group jumped out of their ride, approached the photog's jeep and punched the living daylights out of the driver.

The photogs say they tried to come to the driver's defense ... but the bodyguards began pummeling them too. Eventually, the photogs claim the men stole the keys from their jeep ... leaving the snappers stranded in the middle of the wild animal park.

Brand is set to marry Katy Perry at a resort near the wild animal park in the next few days.

We called Indian police for comment -- but they kept hanging up on us. Calls to Brand's people were not returned.

Can anyone explain to me why this is happening? I get that both Brand and Perry are celebrities and are in the public's eye, but aren't they allowed some semblance of privacy? The fact that their wedding information was leaked is bad enough, but now paparazzi are stalking them at a time that should be private?

What celebrities will do to have a private, memorable wedding.
Stalkarazzi take things to far. It is all about the money shot.
If they want the money shot, they need to take the hard knocks.

There are many celebrities who get married without the knowledge of the public and/or papparazzi, they have been telling that they were geting married in India for weeks. As far as Brand is concerned he is a rude crude jackass!

Why would you guys make poor Gary call up Indian police? At least we know you don't have any TMZ spies in Indian police.

So, just cause you want privacy-it's ok to have your bodyguards beat the sh*t out of someone? Nice.

Not sure why anyone really cares anyway-they both suck.

Ha and the Piece of **** that he is marrying are nothing but talentless Fame Whores. If their marriage lasts more than a year it would be a big surprise. He is a complete A-Hole and she is a Bitzh
