Kanye West allegedly assaulted a photographer at LAX today.
In the video above, Kanye is headed out of LAX when photographers surround him. One photog keeps talking to Kanye, asking "What's up?" and calling him a "cool guy." He also says, "Come on Kanye, I don't want to fight with you."
Except, clearly, the photographer does want to fight. Or at least provoke a reaction. And he got one. Kanye runs up to the guy and the video cuts off. But by the look of the photos that are pouring in, Kanye tried to wrestle the camera from the photographer and the photographer ended up on the ground. Paramedics and police are reportedly on scene.
UPDATE: Here's a video of another angle of the incident via X17:
Last Friday, Kanye also got into it with a photog at LAX, telling the photog, "DON'T TALK EVER AGAIN." Kanye also flipped out at a photog who kept hassling him after he walked into a sign earlier this year. He previously got into an altercation with a photographer at LAX back in 2008.
Kanye has also ranted about the paparazzi on his songs. On "New Slaves" he rhymes, "So go and grab the reporters/So I can smash their recorders."
UPDATE: Now TMZ reported that Kanye West has been named a felony suspect for attempted robbery in regards to Friday's altercation with the photog.
