Apparently, they do things differently in Costa Rica. Even celebrity weddings can get pretty wild and woolly.
Armed bodyguards opened fire on two paparazzi at Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's (second) nuptials this weekend, held in Costa Rica. And the paps say bullets blew out the windows of their SUV.
"Thank God I'm all right. At that moment, I thought I was going to die," lensman Rolando Aviles told the New York Post.
"The bullet went between us, missing our heads," Aviles said. "If the bullet had been a little more to the left or right, it would have killed one of us. I said, 'They're going to kill us,' and that's when I hunched down to cover myself. When the glass broke, that's when my friend started driving really fast."
Aviles and Yuri Cortez, both vet INF photographers, say they got permission from Gisele's neighbor to shoot the wedding ceremony from about 300 feet away.
But the couple's bodyguards spotted them and chased them. The pair ran back to their SUV. But the guards got them and took them back to the wedding house.
Aviles quoted the guard as saying, "Tom Brady just wants to talk to you. It's OK, nothing's going to happen."
But when the photographers went to Gisele's house, they were reportedly met by three members of the wedding party and five security dudes.
The QB's reps said Gisele had an exclusive wedding picture deal with a Brazilian mag. After the photogs escaped, they ran back to their car and floored it. That's when the shooting started. Paps said they found a .38-caliber slug in their SUV's front cabin.
"I could have lost my life for the sale of some pictures that Gisele didn't want published. Are they insane?"
What do you think?
Are celebs within their rights to stop people from photographing private events? And for ruining their exclusive deals?
But with guns? That seems a bit crazy.
