Ben Affleck’s daughter, still a pre-school have troubles with other parents and local councillors because of the father being famous. The little Nursery School in Santa Monica, California has become a target for paparazzi ever since Violet, 3-year-old, became a student there and parents and teachers claim the photographers are robbing kids of a peaceful arrival. Some worried parents claim they’ve been physically and verbally abused by the snappers, and one alleges her four-year-old was almost run over by one of them !!!

Richard Bloom, member of the Santa Monica City Council is now leading a charge to create school buffer zones, where the photographers cannot stand. An attorney, told the Los Angeles Times, “If this were an isolated thing that had happened once or twice, I wouldn’t be spending my time on it.”

The councillor admits he has spoken with the parents (Garner and Affleck) about their concerns: “They expressed to me that they understand this is a part of their lives that they have to accept, but it’s not something that other people should have to experience.”

Bloom joins Los Angeles City Council member Dennis Zine among those leaders trying to restrict paparazzi access in Tinseltown. Zine has spent the past 18 months pushing measures to create buffer zones throughout Hollywood.
