Paparazzo - The Meltdown is a Strangers and Freaks mission in Grand Theft Auto V given to protagonist Franklin Clinton by paparazzo Beverly Felton via a text message in Los Santos.


Franklin Clinton, having been told by Beverly Felton to do Vinewood Blvd in Downtown Vinewood, arrives and phones Beverly. Beverly tells Franklin that Poppy Mitchell has been spotted in a police chase and that he is to follow them to take photographs. Franklin then moves to Clinton Ave to start pursuing Poppy and the officer chasing her. The three cars drive through Vinewood Hills until the police officer loses control at the junction of North Conker Ave and Fenwell Pl, flipping the car. Another police officer, however, takes up the pursuit. The chase continues throughout northern Los Santos, including through the Vinewood Casino car park, until Poppy crashes into a palm tree at the Elgin Ave and Hawick Ave junction after trying to avoid another police car on Hawick Ave.

Poppy crawls out of the car and, after standing up, begins to stagger towards the officer before sitting down at the side of the road. The officer walks over to Poppy and recognises her, mentioning the sex tape recorded by Franklin earlier, and asks her for an autograph. Poppy then states that she will do anything if the officer allows her to go free. Franklin takes a photograph of Poppy using his camera phone and sends it to Beverly. Beverly responds warning Franklin to leave the area before he is arrested, which Franklin does.
