Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne at the Center of Attack on Photographer

Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne were at a center of a fight that saw their two filmmaker friends arrested for allegedly assaulting a paparazzo and leaving him with a broken arm after he tried to photograph the stars.

Robbie and Delevingne had finished a meal at the Patagonia Sur restaurant in Buenos Aires, Argentina at around 03:00 on Sunday when they were approached by photographer, Pedro Alberto Orquera.

Robbie’s friend and business partner, movie producer Josey MacNamara along with key grip Jac Hopkins, supposedly took umbrage with the paparazzo for trying to take photos of the actresses.

MacNamara, Hopkins and Orquera reportedly pursued Orquera outside of the restaurant before smashing the camera. According to reports, the impact of the fall broke the right arm of Orquera and left him with a number of injuries.

MacNamara and Hopkins were arrested by Argentinian police and taken in for questioning in connection with the incident, while Robbie and Delevingne fled the scene.

Orquera meanwhile was placed into a neck brace and stretchered to the nearby Argerich Hospital, where he remains following initial treatment. Published photos show Orquera awaiting surgery for his broken arm. The paparazzo claims he is preparing to file a lawsuit against the British filmmakers.

The 61-year-old photographer told Argentine news outlet TN that he had been commissioned by a magazine to track down Robbie and Delevingne in Buenos Aires.

Although he broke his arm in the attack and suffered several cuts, Orquera was able to protect his camera equipment and the shots he had taken.

“I suffered a brutal aggression. “A miracle saved my life,” the photojournalist claims. “I’m not sure what would happen if I fell to the ground with the speed at which those people pursued me .”


” They never took my material… When I fell to the floor [the camera], the material was broken but I managed to salvage it,” Orquera adds.

In an interview with TN, Orquera explained that his arm was severely injured and it is unknown whether he will regain full use of the limb.

“I have a cast in my right arm. My arm is severely compromised. I don’t know when I will be able to use it again,” Orquera claims.
