Brad Pitt versus paps: A bloody turf war at Miraval!


Paparazzi cameramen dressed in camouflage were found Thursday hiding on the 1,235-acre grounds of Miraval, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's chateau in southern France.

A major brawl broke out, resulting in injuries and legal complaints.

But, according to the Associated Press, the paps and the head of security for Maison Jolie-Pitt tell contradictory tales.

Freelance photographer Luc Goursolas claims he broke a guard's finger and bit another guard. But that's because they were hitting him with a walkie-talkie, punching and kicking him in the head -- a wound that needed three stitches.

"I was pouring blood. I threw myself at them, put blood all over them, and told them that I had HIV so they would stop hitting me," Goursolas told AP on Friday.

Tony Webb, head of Miraval security, said Goursolas went "berserk" without cause and that his guards did not punch the photographer.

Goursolas insists he wasn't on the property but in the woods nearby. "The forest belongs to everyone. I wasn't in their garden," he told AP. Oh, and he didn't take any photos. Neither did the camo-clad video camerawoman with him. That's what they said.

OK, then why the blend-into-the-forest camo gear?
