Romijn-Stamos Suffers Verbal Attack From Photographer
A rabid photographer crossed the line and verbally assaulted Rebecca Romijn-Stamos Wednesday, and the entire ugly incident was caught on tape.
Wednesday night in New York, at a private screening
of Rebecca’s new movie, "The Punisher," Romijn-Stamos,
was feeling sad after her breakup from her husband John, and
chose not to pose for photographers. This caused the paparazzo
to break into a long, frequently obscene tirade that included
statements like, "I can’t believe this, what a diva!"
and, "Now I know why your husband left you!"
Rebecca appeared on "The Howard Stern Show" Friday
morning to explain what happened after the photographer yelled
at her. "I kept on walking, went down the escalator, and
I thought I was going to lose it," she told Stern. "I
was shaking, and I started to cry and just left."
The offensive paparazzo is named Steve Sands, notorious for
bullying celebrities. Just last year, our cameras caught him
getting physically carried out of the opening of Gabriel Byrne's
Rebecca’s people tell "Extra" that they’ll take no
legal action against Sands and won’t even dignify the incident
with a response.
Friday morning, Romijn-Stamos, still a bit shaken by what happened,
appeared on "Good Morning America" to set the record
straight about her breakup -- specifically about reports that
John Cusack contributed to the split.
"All of it is fabricated," Romijn-Stamos insisted.
"I have a puppy. That's who's in my life right now. I haven't
been going out." And after what happened Wednesday night,
it would be hard to blame her.
