Tom Brady likes operating out of the shotgun on the football field. Gisele Bundchen's bodyguards seem to like operating them as well - against paparazzi.
That's the allegation of a federal lawsuit by a couple of celebrity gossip photographers who claim they were under fire - literally - from her security team.
The men claim they were shot at while attempting to cover the sexy pair's April wedding. Who says everyone who works in gossip just sits around in PJs?
Echoing allegations made at the time of the soiree, Yuri Cortes and Rolando Aviles claim that they were shaken down by Tom and Gisele's security detail.
After managing to escape, the photographers fled in their SUV.
They look so nice. But step back or they'll have you SHOT!!!!!!
That's when the guards opened fire, allegedly, which blew out the car's back window and "narrowly missed striking" the celebrity gossip photographers.
Sounds like a pretty traumatic experience, and forwhat purpose? Not even a glimpse of Gisele Bundchen nude is worth that. Well, probably not anyway.
The photographers and their fellow plaintiff, the Agence France-Presse, are seeking at least $1 million in damages. Tom and Gisele had no comment.
