Ben Affleck

I Didn't Kick the Paps ...

They Were Scaring My Kid!

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.

The name "Seraphina" sounds like a combination of the a Crayola crayon color an and STD discovered exclusively in Kim Kardashian.

Whatever his reason was for doing it, doing a move like that while carrying his daughter was a much more real and dangerous threat to his daughter than the paps were.

Ben Affleck is a very good and decent man. Every loving father protects his children. Some of you, STOP pulling him down. He doesn't deserve it!

People who are constantly hounded by the hounds of hell [paps] should have a Stand your Ground Law just for them. Any impedance after a warning should allow one to act as of they were defending their lives. No one deserves to be treated like lab rats no matter what job they do.
