Chris Martin allegedly hit a photog with his jeep as he left a fancy Santa Monica restaurant, but there's something really odd about this one.
Chris and Gwyneth Paltrow went to Giorgio Baldi Restaurant with their 2 kids and all was fine, but on the way out a photog runs up to take their photo and says he was struck by their jeep. An ambulance was called and the pap was taken to the hospital.
Here's the weird thing. The photog who took pics of the accident was standing across the street. It's unclear why a cameraman would be so far away, because there was a clear shot of the family from the restaurant side ... right on the sidewalk. In fact, 3 other photogs were perched right there.
We've never seen a photog take pics from across that street ... so, as we said, it's weird he's the one who got shots of the accident. Also, he and the guy who allegedly got hit have worked together.
And as the injured photog is taken away on a stretcher, he's looking directly into the camera.

NFL Pro Bowl
Wives Dragon Players ...
To Wild Welcome Party
1/23/2015 3:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Antonio Cromartie, Drew Brees, Golden Tate, Chris Harris Jr. were among the players at a Pro Bowl welcome party at the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix Thursday night -- and came face-to-face with giant snakes, lizards, and alligators.
The Phoenix Herpetological Society brought the creatures, and its prez Russ Johnson tells us most of the players hung back while their wives and kids rushed to pet the animals. He adds some NFLers did eventually come over ... after a couple drinks.
Liquid courage never hurts.
FUN FACT: The huge lizard Terricka Cromartie is holding (or maybe it's holding her) is a water monitor. Looks like a Komodo dragon, but it's not. The more you know.

Celeb Realtor Kurt Rappaport
K.R. Owns the Best Pad in L.A.
1/21/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jay Z and Beyonce may think they lost out on the best house in SoCal -- that's because they never laid eyes on Malibu mega-realtor Kurt Rappaport's $100M palace ... and it's insane.
Don't get too excited ... he's not selling ... but consider this -- the sprawling 22,000 sq-ft Malibu paradise sits on 6 acres and comes with the longest private pool in the entire state -- 168 epic feet.
Kurt, who brokers deals for a slew of celebs, is a patient guy ... it only took 7 years to build the place with a $60M price tag. That's a modest $40M return in the year and a half since completion.
But if you're looking for another reason to hate your life, consider Rappaport is only 43.
Now step away from the ledge.

Couldn't nobody hold Diddy or his son down this weekend -- the two were drainin' bottles (of Ciroc of course) at Justin Combs' 21st birthday.
Diddy's definitely a cool dad ... the rapper threw his son an epic '90s-themed party at a mansion in Bel Air for all his friends along with celeb drop-ins like Justin Bieber, Khalil, Kendall Jenner, Madison Beer, and A$AP Rocky.
Check out the photos from inside the bash ... not sure if the Statue of Liberty was a b-day gift or a party guest. Moment of the night -- we're told a boozy Diddy toasted his son and bragged about JC's enormous trust fund.
