Kanye West Sued by
Papparazzo Over LAX
Kanye West has never been shy about his harsh feelings toward the paparazzi, but after getting physical with one of them, it looks like he's going to have a new problem with the always-present cameramen.
Last month, the 36-year-old new dad found himself facing off with a paparazzi who was attempting to get video footage of Kanye leaving LAX airport. The incident, which was captured on video, involved the frustrated rapper attempting to pry the camera out of the paparazzo's hands following a verbal altercation.
The photographer persued a legal case against the rapper, after the confrontation landed him in the hospital (where he was treated for contusions and muscle strain). With the help of high-profile lawyer Gloria Allred, who represented Tiger Woods' mistresses, the lawsuit is going after Kanye for assault, battery and interfering with the cameraman's freedom of speech.
In addition to his anti-paparazzi feelings, the new dad has made it clear he takes his privacy seriously. Baby North West's parents have barely been seen since her birth!
This Friday, Kanye will make his first public appearance on Grandma Kris Jenner's daytime talkshow, where he reportedly reveals the first photo of the baby, despite the couple's original plan to release the pic on social media.
Some believe that his decision to show the photo on Kris is part of an effort to prevent cameras from trying to capture the first glimpse at the baby -- which seems like a much better stance against paparazzi than violence!
