Taking pictures is a tough job, but someone has to do it. Celebrity photgrapher Jabari Tilgham, 30, has filed a lawsuit against Sean "Diddy" Combs, his company Bad Boy and four of his bodyguards, claiming that he was beat up at a party co-hosted by the rap mogul. 

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Tilgham was one of only 12 photographers allowed inside Club Mansion in Atlanta for an event hosted by Diddy and Rick Ross. He claims that Diddy's personal bodyguards singled him out and beat him up.

In the lawsuit, Tilgham's lawyer says that a security guard who worked for the club signed an affidavit confirming his story. The suit was filed on Friday in DeKalb County State Court.
