Justin Stephens/Comedy Central(NEW YORK) -- That guy whom Amy Schumer says frightened her so badly it made her think twice about taking photos with fans is speaking out -- and he says Schumer’s not telling the whole story.

The Inside Amy Schumer star posted a photo to her Instagram Saturday of a man she says ran up to her in Greenville, S.C. demanding she take a photo with him.  "This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared the s*** out of me,” she wrote, saying he refused her request for him to stop, allegedly declaring, “No, it’s America and we paid for you.”

"I was saying stop and no," Schumer continued. "Great message to your kid. Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no."

That guy is Leslie Brewer.  He tells Greenville, SC’s WSPA-TV that yes, Schumer did become upset when he began recording her, but that he stopped recording as soon as he asked her to.  He’s also posted a brief video on his own Instagram, showing him saying “Sorry” and Schumer asking him, “Can you delete that?” followed by separate video of Brewer declaring, “And then she got mad at me.”

Brewer tells the TV station Schumer walked away, but then returned to take the photo of him she posted on her own Instagram, telling Brewer she would tell her fans about him.  “She gets mad.  She’s like ‘that’s disrespectful’,” Brewer says.  “ She turns to my daughter and wife and says ‘is this the type of example you want to set for them.” 

“I wish I would have finished recording. I wish I would have never stopped to show people what really happened,” Brewer says, noting he’s getting online backlash from Schumer’s fans, and has also been threatened online.

“I’m being looked at as somebody that I’m not,” he says.  “You know, at first it was funny but as the days go on, it is kind of like, wow.”

He adds, “I think she’s tried to paint some kind of picture of me that I am an aggressive guy and that I came up to her. If you see my video, you can tell that she wasn’t scared.  At the end of the day, I feel as though I did what every other fan would have done if they would have seen one of their celebrities.”

Schumer concluded in her Instagram post, "I will not take picture[s] with people anymore and it's because of this dude in Greenville."  She was in Greenville to kick off her 10-city comedy tour. She performed Friday night at Bon Secours Wellness Arena.

After many of her social media followers lamented Schumer's decision to cease taking fan photos, the actress changed positions.

"I'll still take pictures with nice people when I choose to if it's a good time for that," a photo she tweeted read. "But I don't owe you anything. So don't take if I say no."

Schumer later added, in part, "I am grateful to people who like my work and support me but not the ones who think that behavior is ok."

Macall B. Polay/courtesy of HBO(NEW YORK) --  Just how badly did people want to watch April 24th's season premiere of HBO's Game of Thrones? Apparently enough to curtail their primal urges -- at least for an hour -- according to one leading adult site. 

PornHub crunched its user data for the night of the show's season six premiere, and it revealed that the site's user traffic across the United States dropped 4% while the hour-long premiere aired -- while that might not seem like a lot, consider the streaming site has more than 60 million daily visitors, and the U.S. ranks as the number-one market.

The surfing resumed in the hours that followed to pre-premiere levels.

Other user data showed that naughty searches related to the series -- whether it be porn parodies of the book-based HBO show or searches for the series' frequent nude scenes -- spiked 370% in the hours leading up to the premiere.

Richard E. Aaron/Redferns(MINNEAPOLIS) — Alfred Frank Jackson, a half-brother of Prince, is among the late music legend's family members expected to appear in court Monday as the division of Prince's estimated $300 million estate begins.

Jackson, 62, who shares the same mother as his younger half-sibling, described himself as being “pretty surprised” to learn of Prince’s death last month at the age of 57. Jackson, of St. Cloud, Minnesota, shared memories of Prince in an exclusive interview with ABC News.

He remembered his brother as being “real competitive” and a “ladies’ man,” and while he acknowledged not having seen Prince in a while, Jackson said he wrote to him often.

He remembered looking out for his brother when he would get into “a few scrapes” when they were younger.

“Growing up, I protected him ... I was so much taller than him, I protected him,” Jackson said.

Prince, who died at his home in Minnesota, had no known will or trust, according to his sister, Tyka Nelson. It's expected that Prince's estate, worth an estimated $300 million, will be divided between Nelson and his five half-siblings, if state law is followed.

Frank Wheaton, Jackson’s attorney, told ABC News that a judge will lay out the laws and rules of the process during today’s court proceedings. He said he expected that a special administrator will be appointed to perform “a secure assessment of everything that has occurred in Prince's life.”

Wheaton addressed reports of disagreement and negativity among family members, including that Jackson was not invited to the musician’s memorial. Wheaton said Jackson had a “heartwarming” visit to Paisley Park, Prince’s home in Chanhassen in the Minneapolis suburbs, after the singer’s death.

“The rumor mill is at work and some of the things that have happened we know should be afforded an inadvertent behavior as opposed to a purpose-filled behavior,” he said. “Even things that Alfred has had to go through, we know that some of them were not purposeful. But nonetheless we have done everything we could to be respectful to this process.”

Wheaton added that any misgivings were put to rest after the family met.

“If you saw the hugs that were given, you would know that this is a family that loved one another no matter what ... Alfred contacted me through his brother and said, ‘I want you to be here to make certain that I have an opportunity to sit at the table’ and everyone welcomed him accordingly,” he said.
