Photogs vs. Leo, Round II

Photographers who covered Leonardo DiCaprio’s tumultuous trip through Taipei Airport accused the “Titanic” star on Saturday of having insulted them. Their renewed anger was sparked by a statement issued by the star’s publicist, who said DiCaprio’s party was verbally assaulted by paparazzi when he arrived Monday, en route to Los Angeles after completing filming of the movie “The Beach” in Thailand. “DiCaprio’s transit was news, and as journalists it was our job to cover and report the news . . . But his aides obstructed our work and swore at us,” the photographers said in a statement. “We were reporters on duty, not the so-called paparazzi.”
