Ken Paves—hair stylist and frequent escort to Jessica Simpson—was hospitalized Saturday night after suffering an injury from a paparazzo’s camera, TMZ reports.

Paves and Simpson were leaving West Holly

wood restaurant Madeo when a swarm of paps descended, leading to a mad rush. During the photog frenzy, one pap’s camera hit Paves near the eye, causing an injury that left blood trickling the stylist’s face.

After Paves ushered Simpson to their waiting ride, the driver rushed to a nearby hospital, where Simpson joined Paves as he was treated for his injury with stitches.

As of yet, no police reports have been filed.
