SUIT FILED OVER GISELE BUNDCHEN WEDDING

Two paparazzi snappers are suing supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her new hubby Tom Brady over an alleged shooting incident at the couple's Costa Rica wedding. The two men, already identified as Yuri Cortez and Rolando Aviles, are claiming the bodyguards shot at them, shattering the rear window of their car, as they attempted to get unauthorized snaps of the wedding ceremony last spring. The photographers tell TMZ.com they got proper clearance to take the photos from a nearby property, but Brady's security team demanded they hand over the cameras and equipment after spotting them taking snaps. The celebrity photographers were attempting to make a very quick escape in a sport utility vehicle, when the security men opened fire and showered the vehicle with bullets. In the suit, filed in New York City yesterday, the two men claim the bullets "narrowly missed" striking them. The photographers allege Brady and Bundchen were negligent in hiring and training the security team. They are seeking more than $1 million in damages. The Boston Herald previously reported the paparazzi were from the INF photo agency and were hiding in bushes near Bundchen's beachfront home in Mal Pais, taking pictures of the event when they were caught by the newlyweds' security guards. The New York Daily News published a photo of the shot-up car in April.
