The term "papped" is informal slang and is derived from the word "paparazzi." It is used to describe the action of being photographed, typically by paparazzi, who are photographers who take candid pictures of celebrities, often without their consent, in various public or private settings. The term is commonly used in the context of celebrities or public figures being caught on camera by paparazzi photographers.

Here are some examples of how the term "papped" might be used:

"The actress was papped while leaving the restaurant with her co-star."

"The singer was papped at the airport, and the photos were quickly shared on social media."

"Even when trying to have a low-key vacation, the royal family members were papped by photographers hiding in the bushes."

"The celebrity couple tried to avoid being papped by using a private entrance, but the paparazzi still managed to get a few shots."

In these examples, "papped" refers to the act of being photographed by paparazzi, often in a way that invades the subject's privacy. The term is commonly used in tabloid media and celebrity gossip contexts.

The word comes from an Italian film, Fellini's "La Dolce Vita," and its photographer character, whose name is Paparazzo.
