Chris Martin Allegedly Hits Photographer With His Car

Chris Martin Allegedly Hits Photographer With His Car

Chris Martin got himself into a sticky situation this weekend after he allegedly hit a photographer with his Jeep while leaving E Baldi restaurant.

The 37-year-old singer was leaving the restaurant with Gwyneth Paltrow and their two kids when a photographer reportedly ran up to the car to take a photo as they left.

The photographer says he was hit by the car and an ambulance was called to take him to the hospital.

TMZ, which has pics from the scene, says the story sounds “weird” though as there was another photographer across the street from the restaurant snapping photos of the whole incident, even though photographers reportedly never stand across the street from that restaurant.

    oops. whats with the paps…why put yourself in a position to get hit, stalking celebs?

    Sounds like a set-up by the low life paps.

    Definitely a set up, but even if it wasn’t, it the paps are going to attack and stalk these people, then they deserve whatever happens. Personally, I think there should be a law that they’re not physically allowed within 30′ of any celebrity. It’s out of control and I can’t believe it’s legal. Someone is going to get really hurt some day.

    I doubt Martin hit him and left ~~ he would have way too much to loose.

    However, he did run over the curb close to the man. The front right tire can clearly be seen off the road and on the curb which is very strange.

    Chris is a good man. Had he hit someone, he would have been out of the car immediately, pap or not, and helped them. He’s totally changed his attitude towards the paps who he used to lash out at years ago, and has befriended them, so that they would just leave his kids alone, which they have. Would never “hit and run”anyone. And is always aware of being an example to his his children, who were in the car, so even if HE knew was scam, would for their sake gotten out and checked on this guy to teach them that’s what you do. He’s still horrified about the school Vespa incident, sincerely personally handled dealing with the school, parents whose kids where on the bus that Gwyneth cut off and more. This is one “article” that should be taken down I think, as something is WAY OFF here. Just checked back in to see if had been removed, as have a friend who is very close to his children that is very upset that this is being “reported”.

    Why is that man leaning against a moving car when all the other photogs are a distance away?
