Hilary Duff, 9 Months Pregnant, Confronts Relentless Paparazzo: ‘He Continues to Stalk Me’
Hilary Duff put her foot down towards a relentless paparazzo on Saturday (September 22), calling out a persistent photographer for following her around while she was running personal errands.
The actress, who is currently nine months pregnant with her second child (her first with boyfriend Matthew Koma), put the paparazzo on public blast this weekend, accusing him of following her all the way from her sister Haylie's house to her son's soccer game.
The Younger star uploaded a video of her confrontation with the man on Instagram.
"Followed me to run errands. I politely asked him to let me be and he continues to follow and stalk me down like pray [sic] for hours now," Duff wrote in the caption for the clip. "This is not ok. I am 9 months pregnant. When people say that’s what you get for signing up to be a celebrity it honestly makes me sick. This is every day of every month and it’s simply not ok. If a non 'celeb' (I’m sorry to use that word) was dealing with this the law would be involved."
In the video, Duff politely asks the man to stop following her and tells him that he's making her feel uncomfortable.
"I'm nine months pregnant, I have the flu, and I've asked you once to leave me alone, can you please stop taking my picture? You're like, hunting me down," she tells him, to which he complains that he "didn't get any photos."
This is hardly the first time Duff has lamented the aggressive nature of the paparazzi. She's even sung about the topic.
On her 2007 song "Dreamer," off her album Dignity, the pop star slammed the paparazzi, singing:
"I'm at the grocery store and there you are, just watching me
Pick up my clothes from the cleaners and look who I see
I try to lose you in my car
But you won't go away
Come on, buddy, don't you think you've overstayed your stay?
Don't you have better things to do with your life
Than hang around and stare at me, and complicate mine?"
