But a spokesperson for the singer says the snapper just tripped over...

A photographer has accused COLDPLAY singer CHRIS MARTIN of attacking him.

According to reports, Martin was out in London with his pregnant wife Gwyneth Paltrow when the alleged incident happened.

A spokesperson for the singer said: “Naturally enough for a man whose wife is heavily pregnant with her first child Chris’ sole concern was to ensure that Gwyneth got into the cab safely and was not impeded or harassed in any way.

“As they were not leaving together he followed the taxi for a short distance to ensure she was safely on her way when at the same time the photographer ran after the taxi tripped and fell in the process.”
