The paparazzi didn’t listen to Kanye West and paid for it. While leaving LAX on Friday afternoon, photographers swarmed the rapper as he walked to his car. One chatty cameraman decided to ask him some questions, but Kanye was not having it.
“Why can’t we talk to you?” asked the paparazzo, who obviously wasn’t following Kanye’s don’t talk orders.
Kanye then approached the photographer, who backed away as he got closer.
“I told you don’t talk to me, right? What you tryna do is get me in trouble so I’ll have to pay you like $250,000,” said ‘Ye.
He then tackled him to the floor while trying to grab his camera. The other paps kept snapping before Kanye got in his car and drove off.
Paramedics and the police were called to the scene. According to the Los Angeles Times, L.A. police have launched a battery investigation.
Just last week, Mr. West got into a scuffle with a TMZ cameraman at LAX and issued him a stern warning: “Don’t talk to me at all. Tell everybody, never talk to anyone.”
