James Franco Sued for Allegedly Head-Butting Photographer at Concert

James Franco is being sued by a photographer, David Tonnessen, who claims the 38-year-old actor assaulted him at a Lana Del Rey concert back in October 2014.

In a suit filed in Los Angeles on Monday (October 17), David said he was trying to take pictures of Lana at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery when he heard some commotion and spotted James.

He went on to say that James smiled “rather demonically” at him before coming toward him “with a blank expression of joy on his face,” according to court documents. He added that James then head-butted him in the stomach and knocked him to the floor before running away.

David reported that some of his “severe and permanent physical and psychological injuries” required medical care. He is suing for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and seeking monetary and punitive damages.

James has yet to comment on these accusations.

Check out some of the pics inside of James and the photographer from the alleged attack back in 2014.
