Kanye West Attacks Photographer, Paramedics on Scene
Whoa! This afternoon TMZ reports that Kanye West went off on yet another photographer — and this time things got physical, with paramedics called to the scene.
Reportedly, five photographers surrounded Yeezy while he exited the LAX terminal. One particularly vocal one — who doesn’t work for TMZ, the outlet claims — fired question after question at the rapper, asking him to respond to recent rumors (likely one of the hundreds involving Kanye’s girlfriend Kim Kardashian and their new daughter North West).
“Come on, Kanye, be cool, man,” the photographer says as Yeezy’s about to enter his car. “Why can’t we talk to you?”
This last question — probably referencing Kanye’s July 12 rant against the paparazzi, which, oddly enough, was on his trip out of LAX — catches the rapper’s ear. Yeezy proceeds to stare the photog down (it’s scary, guys) before approaching him.
“Come on, Kanye. I don’t want to fight with you,” the paparazzo says with a hint of warranted fear in his voice. “Dude, seriously. I don’t want to fight with you, man. I’m just asking.”
“I told you don’t talk to me, right?” says Kanye, still all dead in the eyes. “What you’re trying to do is get me in trouble so I [inaudible word] off on you and I have to pay you like $250,000.” Then Kanye charges, the camera spins, and we’re like, “Yeezy! Why didn’t you listen to your own damn advice?!”
