Music producer Kanye West's burly bodyguard almost beat an overzealous fan to the ground for stepping in front of Kanye and otherwise hindering his forward progress -- just so the fan could take a photo.
If the bodyguard had put his boot on the fan's neck the media would have blamed Kanye, and Kanye would probably be forced to pay the fan hundreds of thousands of dollars to the fan.
This is why celebs hire bodyguards to put a little distance between them and overzealous fans who are trying to get paid.
Are you sure you want to be a celebrity?
