The video begins in media res, and Duff is polite but firm, challenging him when he claims to have no taken any photos (which, in her Instagram caption, she says is untrue) and repeatedly and patiently using the word "please". She continues, "and I've asked you once to leave me alone, can you please stop taking my picture?" Please leave me alone.

Duff is now nine months pregnant with her second kid, she says in the video's caption, and she's sick of being followed around by photogs all day.

Duff wrote on Instagram that the man had been tailing her the entire day. "I am 9 months pregnant", she continued. "You're like hunting me down". This is every day of every month and it's simply not OK. "If a non "celeb"... was dealing with this the law would be involved".

The star, who turns 31 on Friday, is due to give birth to a little girl, her first child with boyfriend Matthew Koma, in the coming weeks.

She added: "Women are so bad ass, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how's strong and handsome you are!" The baby will be a half-sister for her six-year-old son Luca with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie.

Pompeo: Trump willing to meet Iran's Rouhani at United Nations this week
Rouhani made the comments at a military parade Saturday commemorating the start of Iran's eight-year war with neighboring Iraq, which began back in 1980.

Duff is not alone.

Vanity Fair has reported before that the price tag associated with constant security for a celebrity is well into the millions, so believe it or not, for most stars, spending money on this all the time isn't feasible or financially responsible.

In the clip, Hilary, who is expecting her second child, can be heard pleading with the snapper to leave her in peace, especially as she is battling illness while heavily pregnant. The actress told "The Today Show" she blocked in the photographer's vehicle and walked up to his window. "Do you realize how much you are putting my kids at risk?"

After the paparazzo griped about not getting any photos, Duff said his presence made her feel "very uncomfortable".

Bell told "Today" that she politely asked the photographer to delete the images - and he did.
