Nicole Richie:

The Paparazzi Are Scaring My Kids!

11/30/2010 9:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Richie is going after a paparazzo tomorrow in court ... but TMZ has learned it's the beginning of a campaign she's waging against renegade photogs.

Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... Nicole will appear tomorrow in her bid to get a permanent restraining order against Fabricio Luis Mariotto, whom she actually photographed stalking her 2-year-old child, Harlow, at her preschool.

We're told Nicole will testify that she's not scared of Mariotto, but Harlow is frightened beyond words.  Nicole will tell the judge Harlow has seen Mariotto and other photographers chase and incite Nicole and it's taking an emotional toll on the child.

Nicole, who already got a temporary restraining order against Mariotto, will explain that other photogs have also crossed the line with both Harlow and Sparrow.

The children will not be present in court, nor will their baby daddy, Joel Madden.

Nicole's theme when she testifies -- It's not about her, it's about her kids ... and it must stop -- and if it doesn't she's going after the photogs who persist.

It's not the paps problem. You wanted to be famous/infamous and this is what you get.

Another no talent fame whore.

PAPS DO NOT GO NEAR THE CHILDREN! I REPEAT... STAY THE HELL AWAAAAY FROM THE CHILDREN! Celebrities are one thing, but when they're kids are present and children scared. YOU ARE SO WRONG. I hope they lock that jerk away & send a msg. and TMZ staff, you better take NOTE of this... it is WRONG! She has every right to protect her child.

Good for her! I was just commenting the other day on how ridiculous it is that celebrities' children are being bombarded by paparazzi, and are even the source of material for tabloid articles. I think the only thing Michael Jackson did right when it comes to children was veiling his kids so nobody would recognize or bother them when they weren't with him.

@Passin thru my comment was to all the people saying how ugly the baby is...i HAPPEN TO THINK SHE IS CUTE..it seems like if you don't fit into the barbie doll look you have to be ugly. Anyway I don't like when people start calling babies ugly before they have a chance to grow up.

Why in the world would anyone want photos of Nicole or her children? I can't imagine why any mag or website would want them. Why? I don't get it. Nothing against Nicole, but no one is interested in her and her babies photos. I wonder who is paying for this pics. It's crazy.

Get lost, Nicole, you ugly, fly-faced bitch! No one cares about you or your kids. You still look like you do drugs.

The paparazzi should leave the kids alone.They should be completely off limits.

I think Harlow is very cute. I bet the people calling her ugly have something really ugly to look at in the mirror, yet, they think they are so hot. How funny.

Blah    

You realize she was famous before doing anything in the media like television? Her father is Lionel Richie not to mention she's pretty much tried to stay out of the spotlight since settling down. Lol @ you idiots says that's what you get when you chose to be famous. Not much choice when you have a famous family.

How disgustingly rude are some people to say that a baby is ugly? Have you no shame, did your mothers not teach any manners? If you don't have anything nice to say...then don't say anything at all. You people MUST be the same ingrates on Facebook making teenagers want to commit suicide. I highly suggest everyone of you take a hard look at yourselves and see the mean and petty comments you are making.Remember what you say online will follow you EVERYWHERE. Companies actually review your online posts to decide if they are going to hire you. Who's going to hire someone that leaves spiteful messages along with a lack of maturity.
