Younger star Hilary Duff has shared a disturbing video in which she begs a paparazzo to stop stalking her — only for the photographer to complain that she'd wasted his morning.
The actor and singer, 30, is heavily pregnant with her second child and can be heard pleading to be left alone in the video, posted to her Instagram account.

This guy has been at my sons soccer game this morning then followed me to my sisters house and was basically parked in her drive way to get photos. Followed me to run errands. I politely asked him to let me be and he continues to follow and stalk me down like pray for hours now. This is not ok. I am 9 months pregnant. When people say that's what you get for signing up to be a celebrity it honestly makes me sick. This is every day of every month and it's simply not ok. If a non "celeb"(I'm sorry to use that word) was dealing with this the law would be involved
"I'm nine months pregnant and I have the flu, and I've asked you once to leave me alone — can you please stop taking my picture? You're, like, hunting me down," she begs.
"I'm just asking you to please leave me alone for the day. You've hunted me. I feel very uncomfortable. Please leave a pregnant woman alone."
Incredibly, the paparazzo counters her plea, arguing that she hasn't provided him with a good enough photo opportunity yet.
"I lost my whole morning, and I didn't get no photos," he tells her.
"That's not my fault! Please leave me alone. It's the weekend, sir, please."
Captioning the video, Duff explains that the photographer had followed her from her son's soccer game to her sister's house, where he "basically parked in her driveway to get photos".
"I politely asked him to let me be and he continues to follow and stalk me down like pray [sic] for hours now. This is not OK. I am 9 months pregnant. When people say that's what you get for signing up to be a celebrity it honestly makes me sick. This is every day of every month and it's simply not OK. If a non 'celeb' (I'm sorry to use that word) was dealing with this, the law would be involved," she writes.
