That’s gotta hurt.

A teenager working as a paparazzi photographer was accidentally run over by a chauffeur carrying British pop star Robbie Williams, who understandably looked shocked after the incident Sunday night in London.

The young photographer was trapped under the vehicle after both of his legs were run over.

Witnesses say Williams was crying inside the car after the accident. His handlers quickly whisked him and his crew away in a different car. Police were  called at the scene, and the pap was taken to the hospital. Fortunately, his injuries were minor.

Williams, who has sold 55 million records worldwide, has been acting as mentor to the aspiring pop stars as they faced the public vote for the first time this week.
