Kanye West sure does know how to stay in the headlines and it’s probably not bad thing considering he did just drop a new studio album recently. However, some say he’s not too happy “Yeezus” wasn’t the huge hit he thought it would be and it’s probably bittersweet for him to see his “bff” Jay Z dominate the charts and slay his first week album sales for “Magna Carta Holy Grail.” If that’s not difficult enough, his high-profile relationship with reality star Kim Kardashian seems to get more buzz than his new music, and people are more interested in seeing his daughter North West than buying his album. But if there’s anything he hates more than disappointing album sales, it would have to be the paparazzi. Kanye has a longstanding record of going off on the paps, but it looks like he may have managed to do the worst damage possible. The rapper just attacked another paparazzi at the LAX airport this afternoon and this time the paramedics were called to the scene. TMZ reports:
Kanye was on his way out of the airport when he was swarmed with paparazzi, snapping pictures. One photog was especially aggressive — not a TMZ photog — and probed Kanye with a bunch of questions.
Kanye told the man not to ask him questions, but he kept going — and Kanye attacked, attempting to wrestle the camera from the guy’s hands, and the man fell down. Kanye then immediately jumped into a waiting car and took off. Paramedics and police rushed to the scene.
Kanye wasted no time and fleeing the scene and left the pap on the ground as the ambulance was called. The Los Angeles Times just confirmed the police have launched a battery investigation.
