Brian Austin Green, Megan Fox

Sued For Alleged Brutality

On the Beach

3/26/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0326_brian_fox_launch_EX_v2Brian Austin Green is being sued by a celebrity photographer who claims he was brutally beaten by the actor as his wife, Megan Fox, egged him on.

Delbert Shaw claims in a lawsuit that will be filed this morning in L.A. County Superior Court ... he was taking pics of the smoking hot couple last December on the beach in front of the Four Seasons Resort in Hualalai, Hawaii ... when Brian and Megan allegedly made verbal threats against Shaw. 

According to the suit, it escalated when Megan yelled to her hubby, "Are you going to let him get away with that?"

Shaw alleges Brian defended Megan's honor by hauling off and pummeling him, causing severe injuries. To add insult to injury, Shaw claims Brian threw his iPhone into the deep blue sea.

Shaw says Megan was egging Brian on during the entire incident.

He's suing for unspecified damages and is represented by attorney Sark Ohanian at the law firm of Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley, LLP in Beverly Hills.

Calls to reps for Fox and Green were not returned.

True, beating on someone is illegal. But shouldnt the NONSTOP HARASSMENT of jerks with cameras getting in someone's face also be illegal? Dimwits....

Stupid, Stupid, Stupid . . .
These two should have known better than to get caught up in a situation like this. If you're in a public area, dressed in next to nothing, and have "B-" grade celebrity status, well, you're going to have your picture taken. Get over it.
Have people learned nothing from years of watching the Sean Penn type antics???
WHAT A WORLD.

TMZ "journalists" strike again! The FOUR SEASON's Resort Hualalai is in KAILUA-KONA Hawaii (the Big Island) it's not in HUALALAI.
.
Another missed opportunity to FACT CHECK 1st. Jeez Harvey really? I know your staff falls a bit short on intelligence but come on dude, at least get them to check their facts 1st

Those pics are not of any altercation. The guy on the ground in front of Brian was walking w/the 2 of them.

Yea I don't agree that just because you make X amount of money/are a celeb, that means you can be stalked 24/7. I know people say they "need" the publicity, but come on. Not everything every celebrity does is about getting camera time. Let them enjoy the beach for one lousy hour for God's sake

It's SO white trash to "egg on" your husband while he beats on someone.

I am sorry, but he doesn't look severly beaten. Just trying to get some extra money. He is a leach.

Why did this jerk wait this long to file this suit. If he had let them alone, he would have gotten his ass whipped.

Enough is enough with these paps. Give them some of their own medicine. Get the name and address of all of them and stalk them. See how they like it. Harass them with phone calls, emails, sit outside their houses and photograph everything they do. Run credit checks on them and publish the results. Get their tax returns and publish those too. Run criminal checks and let everyone know all the grimy details. If they are divorced, reveal all the personal details. THEN THEY TOO will know how it feels to a 'STAR'!!
