Kanye West Ain't Going Down Without A Fight, Ya'll
Just like that time in his song where he went into a French restaurant and didn't immediately get given croissants and so demanded that the French restaurant "hurry up with his damn croissants" (that's deep, dude), Kanye's latest lawsuit has revealed that this is a rapper who knows what he wants, and he ain't about to take nobody's bullshit lying down...
So, Kanye is being sued by a guy who maintains that he was attacked by West while trying to take photos of him at Los Angeles International Airport. The suit alleges that West turned, spoke to Ramos and then, "without warning or provocation," he attacked him with punches and attempted to wrestle the camera from Ramos' hands.
The 36-year-old hubbie of well-known down to earth sleb Kim Kardash' has responded to the lawsuit filed against him by paparazzo Daniel Ramos by playing the classic "some of my best friends are black" - revealing that his dad was once a celebrity paparazzo, too. West reportedly told the lawyers:
My father was a paparazzo himself.
This is apparently only partially true - Kanye's old man was reportedly a photojournalist (and also a medical illustrator, Black Panther, and Christian marriage counselor.)
And Yeezus admitted that he's got paparazzi friends, too!
Sometimes I get in the car with paparazzi. Paparazzi help me to park... The paparazzi watch my car and makes sure that cops don't give me tickets. There are some nice guys out here trying to just feed their family.
What do you guys think? Are you of the "he's a celebrity, he signed up for it, he shouldn't be punching paparazzi" camp? Or would you also have walloped the nosy photographer? (Which also makes you a bit hypocritical, given that you're reading this gossip-mongering, right here...)
