Nicole Richie is going after the paparazzi.
It starts with one particular celebrity gossip media member she has beef with, but sources say it's just the start of a bigger campaign she's waging.
KEEP YOUR DISTANCE: Nicole says the paparazzi hasn't been.
Nicole wants a permanent restraining order against Fabricio Luis Mariotto, whom she photographed stalking her 2-year-old child, Harlow, at school.
She's not scared, but Harlow is frightened beyond words, Richie says.
Nicole told the judge how Harlow has seen Mariotto and other photogs hounding and inciting her and it's taking an emotional toll on her daughter.
