Paparazzi caused Bloom crash

Orlando BloomThe Los Angeles Country District Attorney will not file charges against Orlando Bloom in regards to his October 12th crash in which his two female passengers were injured. They’ve ruled that Bloom was not intoxicated, but dazed following the crash, and that it was likely caused by pursuing paparazzi in four cars and one car containing fans. As for his walking away, they say he went about “60 feet from the scene in an apparent attempt to avoid the paparazzi’s continued pursuit.” He then returned to the car, greeted the first police officer on scene with a handshake and stood by while the two women received attention from the paramedics. Bloom got in the ambulance to accompany them to hospital.

    Why do dumb actors run away from papparazzi when they are only taking their photo not trying to shoot them.Actors obviously went into acting to get attention and it’s not unknown what being a famous actor is like for people.

    some papparazzi and fans go way to far on a regular bases, famous people need space and privacy just as much as we do.

    Are there not limits to how close these paparazzi can get? Are actors not at least entitled to “personal space”? I recognize that they have chosen to be famous and have to accept a certain amount of attention for that, but this sounds like a situation where the public was put at risk. I can’t imagine all these cars following Orlando were in single file, diligently obeying the rules of the road… Public safety has to come before the public’s curiosity 100% of the time.

    paparazzi should let star alone they should not have the right to photograph star when there walking, driving or when there just having a good time they should do it only while the stare are in an ex; awards or while there promoting there film.
