Kanye West Could Still Face Felony Charges For Paparazzi Scuffle
False alarm, Kanye West fans! The rapper, who was supposedly facing potential felony charges following a run-in with a photographer at LAX, could still be on the hook, contrary to earlier reports that his case would likely be dropped and he would face no criminal charges whatsoever.
"The investigation is still ongoing and no determination has been made as to whether charges will be filed or not," the LAPD Robbery and Homicide division told Us Magazine in a statement.
Uh oh! That doesn’t sound good, but then again, it’s far too early to determine anything. The first reports were that Kanye could face felony attempted robbery charges, because he lunged at the aggressive photographer and tried to take his camera away. But, says a source for Us, teh whole thing got blown way out of proportion.
"Kanye is fine," said the source. "He didn't hurt the pap. They were just heckling him as usual. Kanye went to grab the camera and the guy fell being so dramatic."
Considering that this photographer, known as Dano or Deano (reports vary), is the pap in question here, we have no problem believing he pulled a soccer flop. After all, this is the same guy who provoked an umbrella-wielding, recently shaved Britney Spears back in 2007,according to TMZ. With that track record, it's hard to believe any charges be lodged against Kanye would stick, but you just never know how these things will go. Stay tuned!
