I’m sure one of the kind readers of this blog will know exactly what happened between the paparazzi and John here, because I can’t tell you as usual. It’s embarrassing how little I know about the backstory of some of these photos. *gulp*
UPDATE: Jessika has explained what was going on in these photos according to the book American Legacy. Thank you, Jessika!
“The person in the car is Angie Coqueran. She is the paparazzo who, along with her business partner Ken Katz, filmed and photographed Carolyn’s and John’s fight in Central Park and were paid a rumoured sum of $250,000 for the footage. These two paps were the ones who basically camped outside their apartment and they were the reason why John started photographing the paparazzi license plates, because they just wouldn’t leave, no matter what (John threatened with harassment lawsuits etc.). So one day, John saw Coqueran in her car there near their apartment again and flipped, jumped on the hood of the car and allegedly screamed repeatedly: “I’m going to get you.” He also grabbed hold of her coat through her window and I read somewhere else that he tried to get her car keys. Carolyn tried to pull John away and started crying. Then Ken Katz came (the guy in the last pics) and they confronted him, saying: “Why the hell don’t the two of you leave us alone?” Ken Katz stated that he apologized and he and Coqueran left.”
Good grief. Sometimes I have a real issue with having these photos at all, knowing that in all likelihood they were taken by a slimeball. I think what’s forgotten is that Friday was a victim too. He was clearly very distressed in these photos and I’m actually amazed at how restrained he was. My dog would most likely bite in an incident like this.
