The world is getting more and more dangerous for the paparazzi. First Alec Baldwin throws a celeb-hounding photographer against a car, and now Jennifer Love Hewitt's fiancé, Brian Hallisay, allegedly roughs up a snap-happy pap.
As E! reports, the pregnant Client List star was dining out with Brian — who, not so coincidentally, is also a Client List star — at a Toscana restaurant in Brentwood, Calif., on Sept. 6 when he confronted a photographer. When the guy refused to stop taking photos, Brian allegedly got violent.
The photographer says that the camera hit his face during the scuffle, resulting in an injury around his eyes.
Jennifer, taking pity on the beat-up photographer, allowed him to take a few more photos. But that didn't placate the guy, who then filed a battery report against Brian with the LAPD, which tells E! that the department has begun an investigation.
Brian plays Kyle on The Client List, but has also appeared in Bones, CSI: NY, Privileged, and Ringer. He started dating Jennifer in March 2012, and in June 2013, the couple announced a double dose of good news: they're engaged and expecting.
Here's hoping the rest of Jennifer's pregnancy is a little less stressful!
