Such is our love for Russell Brand that we didn’t initially believe this story until we saw the whole thing playing out in photos, including the ones above. According to TMZ, photographer Timothy Jackson was in a car, snapping pics of Russell and lady friend Oriela Medellin Amieiro in New Orleans, who were in Brand’s Mustang. There were other photogs around, too, but Brand got out of his car, reached into Jackson’s and snatched the phone out of his hand. The photos show him dropping a phone on the ground. And then we see him standing as if he just tossed something in the air. According to the police report Jackson filed, he threw the phone through the (closed) window of a nearby building.
Oh, dear, Rusty. We know those paps can get annoying, but we’ve heard you talk a lot about how meditation has helped you get over a lot of things, including your many addictions. Sounds like you need a special mantra for this one. Imagine a warm light traveling over you, ignore its similarities to camera flashes, and accept it as public adoration rather than the prying eyes of the media. And when you figure that out, I think we know a celebrity or two who could use it as well (cough, Chris Brown, cough). Also, could you tell us more about Oriela? She seems like an interesting catch!
