Fan forces selfie with Jennifer Lopez
In other news, singer Jennifer Lopez might have experienced one of the scariest moments in her life after an aggressive fan tried to take a selfie with her.
Lucky enough, she was with her boyfriend Ben Affleck, who was there to protect her from the overzealous fan.
The actor and his singer beauty were at the airport leaving Venice, Italy, where they had attended the annual film festival held from September 1 to 11.
From photos shared by Page Six, one could spot the two holding their hands as they walked when a maskless fan got a bit too close as he tried to get photos with the couple.
Before his security arrived, Ben had to deal with the aggressive man, pushing him away as Lopez watched, standing behind him.
