Some teenage weasel is accusing Nick Lachey of rouging him up after the punk tried to take a picture of Nick in an elevator with his camera phone. Younes Renak, 18, said he was in an elevator in the building that Nick's new squeeze Vanessa Minillo lives, when Nick "went crazy when he tried to snap a photo of him inside an elevator at 2am, and began pushing him around." Nick's lawyers are saying that it was just not a matter of a kid trying to take a picture with his cell phone, but that the teen in question "started harassing Lachey at a drugstore and then followed him into the building and the elevator." The punk ass kid is now considering suing Lachey and putting another notch on the list of frivolous lawsuits in America. Hooray! Renak's lawyer adds, "It was a cell phone (camera), wasn't a paparazzi kind of thing. We're talking about an 18-year-old kid taking in life in the big city."
Oh give me a break!! I am the first to admit that I am totally impartial to Nick and more than likely always take his side. But saying that, we all know that he seems to be a pretty mellow guy. Considering he is used to people taking his picture wherever he goes, I highly doubt he randomly chose to rough this kid up without provocation. I do believe that this kid was probably some obnoxious 18 year old weasel that went beyond snapping a photo of him on the street. Following Nick from the drugstore and then into the elevator of Vanessa's building and then going as far to snap a cell phone picture of him to his face is annoying and lame. With anyone, paparazzi or the average Joe, if you are going to pull out a camera and take a photo of anyone without their permission, in a private residence no less, then also be prepared to possibly have your ass kicked as a consequence.
