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.

Both of these people are weird and disgusting, alot of celebs get married and if they want privacy they make it happen,these two are media whores and announce everything they are doing,if it wasn't for the papparizi they would not get any publicity at all because neither of them are that popular!

I don't know that I have ever referred to a male as a SKANK, but this guy fills the bill.

He is an ignorant loud mouth, disgusting pig anyway. I hope they sue his ass and after stranding them in the middle of a wild animal park where they could have been killed, they deserve to pay big time for their little beat up fest. Just who the hell does this moron think he is anyway. He and his cheap little harpy girlfriend are no more special than the dirt under my feet.

I wish this had happened in the US and he and his goons were charged with attempted murder. I also wish I could be foreman of the jury that convicted that s***bag.

BIG Blind British Blunder... attacking Mustafa Quraish and Manan Vatsyayana. Brand and Perry would be lucky to have their photos taken by these guys. When the men find out who they hit they will feel very sorry.

I cannot feel bad for people when they bring it on themselves. No normal person likes being followed. You truly bring it on yourselves when you know how he is in the first place. Leave them alone. If you can't get the hint then maybe a punch to the head will work.

The more I read about these stories of Brand getting his 'body-guards' to behave this way, it reminds me of Sean Penn, behaving the same way. I wouldn't expect for Brand to personally go and do this but his behavior is more and more erratic and irritating. He is no better than the people who are photographing him! What garbage.

Russell is funny..I have seen him interviewed on a number of talk shows lately.

I do believe the guy has big time emotional problems and is phony beyond belief..
