Mike Epps, who is known for his comedic talents in films and on stage, didn’t think it was funny when a paparazzo kept annoying his wife at her birthday celebration at a Detroit club last Saturday, so he reportedly took matters into his own hands, literally!
The ‘Hangover‘ and ‘Lottery Ticket‘ co-star hosted a birthday dinner for his wife, Michelle, and after party for his show at Detroit’s famed Key Club. A photographer allegedly kept pestering Epps’ wife with questions and pictures while the couple was dining at the establishment, which is touted as “Detroit’s most romantic soul food restaurant.”
According to Epps who spoke to TMZ:
“It was a private celebration for my wife’s birthday. I asked the photographer numerous times to not film, but he refused to let up. I then attempted to retrieve the tape from the camera.”
In other words, the photographer got a beatdown. Watch what happened here.
Epps is no stranger to photographer run-ins. Just two years ago, the celeb went buckwild when a photographer came a tad too close for comfort at LAX. Epps went on a tirade and verbally attacked the intruder by calling him practically every word for “homosexual.”
Earlier that same year, Epps’ fists also had a run-in with a process server.
Hell hath no fury like the invasion of a funnyman’s space!
