Ron Galella, King of the Paparazzi
Walk This Way
Galella had a relationship with Jackie Onassis that might charitably be described as fractious. The former First Lady became an obsession for the photographer, and his behavior could be seen as bordering on predatory. Jackie O. eventually sued, getting a restraining order that was to keep him 150 ft. (46 m) away, though he broke it repeatedly. When this was reduced to 25 ft., Galella took to carrying an oversize tape measure around with him so he could pace out the distance. "Why did I have an obsession with Jackie?" Galella wondered. "I've analyzed it. I had no girlfriend. She was my girlfriend, in a way."
