Photographers sue Tom Brady and his wife

Now that Gisele Bundchen is by his side, it looks as if Tom Brady doesn't have to rely solely on his offensive line for protection.

Two photographers are suing the quarterback and his supermodel wife for $1 million, saying they were shot at by Bundchen's bodyguards during the couple's post-wedding party in Costa Rica earlier this year.

In a lawsuit filed today in Manhattan federal court, two photographers and the Agence France-Press news agency accuse Brady and Bundchen of negligence in the hiring of security for the party.

The photographers claim the bodyguards shot at them after one of the photographers refused to surrender his camera. The two men escaped injury.

Brady's agent and Bundchen's publicist declined to comment on the matter.
