Calvin Harris, the Scottish DJ and music producer, is still getting used to being dogged by paparazzi. The ex-Taylor Swift flame became so distracted by photographers yesterday he failed to notice the open rear door of his luxury SUV. He clipped a wall as he drove off. Ouch!

But like a true Scottish gentleman, he accepted full responsibility for the crash. He even apologized to the paps.

“I got mad as hell at a paparazzi today, I’m sorry, you did make me back into a wall but I know you’re just doing your job and I apologize,” he Tweeted after the accident.

And, this is the guy Taylor Swift dumped?

Before the two started dating, Harris was well known, but far from Taylor Swift famous. That all changed during their 15-month relationship. He became fresh meat for the tabloids.

If Harris thought he’d fade from the spotlight after Swift reportedly ended the relationship, he was wrong. Shortly thereafter, she began dating English actor Tom Hiddleston.

Now he’s playing the jilted lover. Everyone wants to know what he’s next move will be.

Yesterday, Harris had just finished working out at a Beverly Hills gym. He was attempting to leave by a back door leading to a narrow alley.

The car, a triple black Range Rover SUV, was already waiting for him, with both driver’s side doors open.

Harris marched sternly by the waiting photogs and hopped in the front seat. The paps fired off their usual questions. Someone asked who he was dating. No reply.

The DJ slammed the front door, and astonishingly, started backing up. The move was a shock because the $85,000 car has a warning light and buzzer if a door is ajar when the vehicle starts moving.

Harris must have ignored that, or misjudged the distance, as he attempted to back out of the alley. Unfortunately, he didn’t come close. The door hit the wall with an audible crunch.

Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts. Harris blamed the paps; was it their fault or his?
