Sydney - Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown was granted an interim restraining order against a well-known Australian paparazzo who she claimed threatened her and put her life at risk.

The singer, who is a judge on the hugely popular talent show X Factor Australia and lives for much of the year in Sydney, alleges that Jamie Fawcett endangered her while she was in a kayak on Sydney Harbour last week.

In a Sydney court lawyers for Fawcett, Australia's self-styled "Prince of Paparazzi", agreed not to "loiter" within 50 metres (160 feet) and not contact Brown, who attended the hearing in a figure-hugging blue dress.

Case will return to court


His lawyer Roland Day said Fawcett agreed to the orders on the understanding "that he is still able to be a photographer and do his job", Australian Associated Press reported.

Brown made made her name as "Scary Spice" in the massively popular 1990s group Spice Girls, which also featured Victoria Beckham, wife of English footballing superstar David Beckham.

The order will remain in place until 22 November when the case will return to court.
