Nicole Richie Paparazzo:

She's No Angelina Jolie

12/1/2010 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Richie's bid to get a permanent restraining order against a paparazzo has been continued, but the photog is now taking a stand, telling TMZ Nicole's not worth stalking because she's a C-plus celeb and "no Angelina Jolie."

Fabricio Luis Mariotto says in legal papers, "I think it's unfair to put all the responsibility of Ms. Richie's frustrations with the entire industry in only one professional, specially when this person has not taken photographs of Ms. Richie or her family for at least 8 months."

Mariotto got nasty, telling us, "Nobody wants to wait at her house.  She's not Angelina Jolie."

Richie won a temporary restraining order against Mariotto, after she took the pic (above) of him at her daughter Harlow's preschool. Richie says Mariotto has been harassing and inciting her family.

In his papers, Mariotto says "I've never been at the school before, I did not know it was there.  As soon as I realized that I was at the children's school and that Ms. Richie seemed upset, I left."

The temporary restraining order will remain in effect until the next hearing.

120110_geragos_pap_videoUPDATE: Outside of court, Richie's lawyer Mark Geragos called Mariotto a "problem" ... while Mariotto claimed the opposite.

She's such a C list celebrity and no one cares enough to wait..but he sees her, takes the pic that no one cares about, then sees she is upset and leaves,then probably sold it for $$(cause no one cares)...Bull****!!

This guy is a menace who gives paps a bad name.

This guy is NOTORIOUSLY bad about stalking celebs. He knew he was outside a school! I've never been to a child's school...that looked like it was something other than a school, with kids making noise...running about etc, people walking in and out with kids. Come on what a pathetic thing to say. He's now trying to down-play what he was doing by saying she's just a C-lister, maybe she is...but he was stills talking her. Her photo is clear evidence of that, he just didn't like having HIS picture taken.

I love to see celeb kids as long as your not in their faces scaring them or invading private time. I know Violet, Jen and Bens kid enjoys it but most don't and seem really terrified. Do it at a distance please. If your standing behind a bush and peeking through a window it's very wrong. When your child is smiling ear to ear and showing their bloomers to the papz that's too much.
