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.

they should leave the kids along. However celebs need to understand that they get paid millions of dollars to do what they do and sadly, they belong to the public. Personal life and privacy = not in the cards. You have the money to pay for privacy thou..so try that instead of getting new handbags etc :)

Want to come work my crappy office job everyday for under 2000 every two weeks Nicole? I promise no one will follow you or your kids around with cameras... :) just a thought
