It is not unusual to find groups of paparazzi taking pictures of celebrities. That has earned them an infamous reputation. We can see how it would be frustrating to get followed for minutes with flashing camera lights, so saying the paparazzi guy is a nice guy sounds strange.
Nobody likes getting followed – it is the nemesis of celebrities (and everyone else). But somehow, for some reason, Michael likes his paparazzi stalker and had a good conversation with him. No doubt, this story is a hoax. This man just needed to put how big he is out there – big enough to get followed around by paparazzi.
