Watch Kanye West Go After a Paparazzi
Kanye West‘s hatred for the paparazzi has been well-documented by the media. So when photos surfaced of Yeezy grabbing for a photographer’s camera after said photog asked a rather rude question, we figured the outcome wouldn’t turn out well.
Luckily, the photographer got away unscathed with camera intact. Now video has come out showing what really happened on that eventful night Yeezy decided to get grabby-grabby with the shutterbug.
As we previously reported, West and his boo, Kim Kardashian, were leaving a Miami-area steakhouse as the paparazzi swarmed around them snapping pictures. Coincidentally, Kim’s ex-boyfriend, Reggie Bush, and his pregnant girlfriend, Lilit Avagyan, were dining across the street at an Italian restaurant.
So when Kimye made their exit, a camerawoman yelled out, “Kim! Did you know Reggie is here [in Miami] having dinner? Did you wanna go congratulate him on his pregnancy?” Well, technically, it’s Avagyan’s pregnancy not his, but it’s awkward question nonetheless.
In any case, the photographer’s question pushed Kanye’s “attack” button and he walks right up and tries to grab for her camera. “What the f—, Kanye?” she asks during the scuffle. After the brief skirmish, she then apologizes, “I’m sorry Kanye, it’s just my job.”
In the end, no one was hurt and everyone got their flicks in. At the end of the video, the photographer announces into the camera, “Kanye West just tried to beat me up!”
Not quite, but it was close. Just be glad that Kanye didn’t turn your camera into scrap metal.
