Cameron Diaz And Justin Timberlake Claim Attempted Assault By Car-Wielding Paparazzi


The nation's second-ranked "cougar" (behind Demi Moore, of course) Cameron Diaz, and her top-of-the-charts boy-toy Justin Timberlake, were reportedly leaving a friend's house yesterday evening when a paparazzi leaped out of the bushes and began to take pictures of the SexyBack couple. The pair then claim to have chased the photographer a short distance, but after he got into his car, everything changed. The paparazzi photog then reportedly:

"...got into his car and drove toward Diaz and Timberlake, causing Diaz to jump out of the car's way."

Which although by the way, is what we generally do when standing in a street and a car drives toward us. But despite that bit of common sense and wisdom, Diaz is seeking to press charges and gave statement to police after the incident.
