Rihanna

Bodyguard Throws KO

Punch to Pap's Face

breaking news

062612_rihanna_punch_splash_launchFirst Drake vs. Chris Brown ... and now ANOTHER fist fight over Rihanna ... but this one ended quickly.

It all went down Sunday night in London ... when a paparazzo (not a TMZ guy) got too close to Rihanna ... and one of the giants protecting the pop star unleashed a right cross that connected ... HARD.

Keep your eyes on the huge guy with the bald head ... who was trying to clear out a space in front of Rihanna's ride as she tried to exit the Whiskey Mist nightclub.

The bodyguard wasn't in the mood to talk things out with the photog ... and fired off one punch that sent the shutterbug down for the count. It's unclear if the pap ever got up.

Rihanna missed the action -- she was already inside her car when the knockout punch was thrown.

How are all these people getting away with assaulting paps? It's illegal to punch someone - even if it's "because" they're sticking a camera in your direction.

Wow tmz really over sold this story. That wasn't a knock out punch, it wasn't even a hard punch. In fact if u look closely the reason the guy fell is cause he tripped, u can see him back on his feet 1 second later.

Isn't that illegal? Just because someone is famous it doesn't give them the right to more access to public spaces then others, correct?

If I push someone or hit someone on the street because they are "in my way" I get arrested.
Why not the same here?
