Ben Affleck

I Didn't Kick the Paps ...

They Were Scaring My Kid!

3/2/2013 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0302-ben-affleck-x17Ben Affleck didn't kick anyone yesterday and was merely trying to get the paparazzi to back off ... because they were scaring his daughter ... this according to sources close to the Oscar winner.

Ben was holding 4-year-old Seraphina yesterday when they encountered a large mass of paps. According to our sources, the photogs got too close for comfort and little Seraphina started crying because she was afraid. 

According to our sources, Ben asked the paps (none of whom work for TMZ) twice to back off and when that didn't work ... he said "You need to be this far away" and swung his leg to demonstrate. 

Our source says Ben never had any intention of kicking anyone and he was merely trying to protect his daughter from the paps ... who he feels have been getting more and more aggressive.

He should have just said "Argo f**k yourself" ... but they probably haven't seen the movie.

Mr. Affleck: There is someone called a boydguard (for those that can afford them). If you want to protect your family from the Pap Leaches, then hire a few bodyguards, and have them with you when you are in public. It's just that simple!

Honestly, if you're within kicking distance, you're too close. Back the eff off.

TMZ you go out of he way to proclaim the slimy paps aren't yours and yet you publish their photos anyway. Just calling a spade a spade. All I see is a dad trying to be protective his daughter. Good for him and too bad he missed.

A minimum distance law for paps is long overdue, especially when children are involved.

"None of whom worked for TMZ'...really? Unless of course one of them turned up something big, then TMZ would buy it in a heart beat. Come on, be honest. Don't try to spin yourself as some wholesome and good organization. Somehow we're supposed to believe your above that. Come on TMZ, don't try to spin us!! TheOtherSpin
