Justin Timberlake facing off with a photographer outside a Beverly Hills hotel (July 14th 2009)

Justin Timberlake apparently got into it with a paparazzo (singular form of “paparazzi,” in case you didn’t know). JT reportedly pulled up to a Beverly Hills hotel sometime Tuesday afternoon (Jul 14) and confronted a photographer trying to get a shot him.

According to witnesses, a “staring contest” ensued, which was eventually broken up by hotel staff. No physical altercation took place, but the confrontation did make for some good pics and a little comedy!
