The paparazzo who was hit by a car and killed thought he was documenting a huge Justin Bieber story. One of his closest friends called in to talk about what went down right before the deadly accident.

Plus, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's unborn baby is making tons of money ... for the porn industry! Yeah, it's weird ... but, good or bad, everyone's got something to say about the latest celeb fetus among us.

And, not surprising ... Katt Williams was arrested again. But what is surprising is the lucid, yet controversial, point Katt made about gun ownership and kids.

OOOO, I wish Harvey was sitting in front of me, I'd go up one side of him then down the other.
.
BTW, when a gay man refers to heterosexuals as MOUTH BREATHERS and BREEDERS is that less offensive then your "F" word?

Harvey was not offended when the N word was used 110 times in the movie Django Unchained,but he's offended when Sheen used the F****t word one time,you can't have it both ways

Scuse me, how does KOBE get away with a windshield that darkened in. Most people are pulled over and given citations. Just wait till a cop pulls over Kobe for that infraction we'll hear Raquel go off on how he was pulled over for being BLACK and not for an outright break of the law.

The Photographer is at fault - he should have been paying attention. Maybe this will be a lesson for all photographers -- mind your own business and do not lose track of everythoing just to get a photo of a celebrity.

If there is blame to be placed, it's the photag. I cannot even believe that Justin, whom I do not care for, is being blamed. Photags know that they are in a risk taking business... Take note all you other annoying paps!

Temptation; a thing each of us has to weigh for ourselves. Only in hindsight will we know if the end justified the means. Seeing JB smoking on a pipe is not a thing I would risk my life for or even desire to see. How did Chris know it was marijuana in the pipe, it could have been another substance. However, the money Chris would have gotten from his work had he gotten the shot could have been outrageous – the mother lode lottery to those in the industry. The officer did try.

I have to disagree with a lot of people on here who blames the guy who died.
Having paparazzi comes with the territory of being a Celeb. This guy was doing his job to make a living. A lot of Celebs have people tip off the paps so they can get pics or an interview. They go out to get pics or a story to come back to sell it to OR work for sites like TMZ -that all of us come here to read, comment or bitch about. I agree some paps go way too far at times, but I don't believe this was the case here. Some paps are stalker-ish and stake out at Celebs homes, around children... and causing any kind of danger is going way too far.
It was never stated that he didn't look both ways. Rate of speed is definitely a factor in this case. It may not of been intentional, but I believe she should be cited. That is why they have the MOVE OVER LAW: If a patrol car is pulled over to the side of the road, you have to change to the next lane (away from the stopped vehicle) or slow down by 20 mph.
I highly doubt this guys friend was trying to "profit" from his death. That is was an ignorant comment.
