Kanye West’s recent freak out at a persistent TMZ cameraman was hardly surprising, considering the rapper’s usual attitude toward paparazzi. He’s always been fairly press-averse, which is pretty impressive since his girlfriend Kim Kardashian is arguably the biggest reality TV star around. He’s made a few cameos on the show, and made a few public appearances, but now that the couple are parents to baby girl North West, Kanye is apparently laying down the law, and declared a complete publicity ban.

"He's been angling for this for a while, but with all the craziness of the last few weeks, Kanye's said 'enough is enough,' and has put his foot down," a source told the UK’s Heat magazine.

That explains the complete lack of baby photos in the press! To be fair, we were never really thought those would go public. Kanye and Kim made it clear that they would be stepping out of the public eye for a while after North was born, so even with all the rumors about photos being sold for millions, or North making her debut on grandma Kris Jenner’s talk show, we never really expected to see her until Kim and Kanye are good and ready.

This is all well and good, but also reportedly non-negotiable. "Kim loves Kanye and wants their family to stay together - he's made it clear that this is the only way," the insider added.

Uh oh. We’re on board with the privacy policy, but ultimatums? Never a good idea. Just our two cents.
