Pau Gasol Blocks The Spanish Paparazzi’s Shot

Larry Altman of the DAILY BREEZE here in Los Angeles was first to report this week Pau Gasol calling on Redondo Beach police officers to throw a scare into the Spanish paparazzi.

Gasol, who lives in Redondo Beach, told officers he saw the men following him before he got into his car. They tailed him with such tenacity that he was unsure if he was being stalked or if they were photographers, Redondo Beach police Sgt. Phil Keenan said.

Officers spotted the black sedan and pulled it over on Diamond Street near Catalina Avenue, just west of the police station. The occupants turned out to be credentialed paparazzi with a Spanish news agency and were allowed to leave, Keenan said.

Police escorted Gasol home.

(Pau’s girlfriend: Shy she ain’t)

Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. TIMES:

“They had laid in wait for him for a while and then when they didn’t take any pictures of him when they had the chance and followed him after that, he thought there was something nefarious on their mind,” said Redondo Sgt. Phil Keenan.

They didn’t take any pictures of him when they had the chance? The Spanish paparazzi has never tailed Gasol in Los Angeles until now. So what changed?

Who knew SbB was so huge in Spain? After we introduced you yesterday to Pau Gasol’s lovely new, 21-year-old live-in girlfriend Silvia, I received a mountain of email from our brothers and sisters in Espana.

Included in those emails was a lot more information about Silvia, including her last name and details of her life. I’m not going to share a lot of that stuff, but I will provide you screen shots of a reality show Silvia signed up for in 2008.

Silvia was part of the cast of the Spanish reality show CIRCUS. The premise was a competition to find the next great circus performer.

Silvia’s specialty was the trapeze, which is curious as I’m not too sure what these photos have to do with that endeavor.

She made it to the last episode, which was nationally-televised in Spain, before being voted off the show by viewers. Gasol I’m sure was aware of it, as the show was a national obsession in his home country. (For all I know that’s where he first spotted her.)

Translation of comments she made about the show in response to a fan’s question in an online chat:

Q: I write to you from Seville. My question goes for Silvia. For time, they gave program in tele, in Four, that not memory comose called, that left people who made pirouettes, was like a contest, and during the parties that you were in Seville, I realized that was a girl sounded much to me. Soon giving him returned, I put in basketMe and I saw that it was Silvia. You participated in the contest? What so was the experience? A greeting and thank you very much!

Silvia: Hello Seville! Indeed, I am Silvia and the program to which you talk about is Circus. I participated and it was a grand experience. I learned new disciplines and the experience was very positive. I remained until the last day of elimination.
