The paparazzi strikes again (literally!), as one overzealous shutterbug went a bit too far and wound up sending Jessica Simpson pal Ken Paves to the hospital.
According to TMZ.com, Jess and her entourage were exiting Madeo in Los Angeles, when they were swarmed by photographers. While all of the regular madness was taking place, one pap hit Ken near his eye with a part of a camera -- leaving him with blood trickling down his face!
Jess and Ken finally managed to get to their car, and the driver took them straight to the hospital to get the hair stylist checked out.
See, there are some really tough aspects to being friends with Jess -- other than having to listen to her talk. We hope Ken gets well soon!
