He was returning from LAX, after attacking a TMZ photographer on leaving the airport. Another photographer attempted to do the impossible – ask Kanye West what happened earlier?
West said: “I appreciate it, but don’t talk. Don’t talk to me. I don’t want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anyone I know. And tell everybody never talk, to anyone, that anyone knows – don’t talk to themselves. Don’t talk ever again.”
Despite his protestations that the photographers were attempting to incite him to attack them in order to have an award for damages paid, West still made his attack.
In 2008, the rapper was arrested for smashing camera equipment after he was approached by paparazzi at the same airport. Police are investigating the latest incident, which may result in a different result from his earlier situation when the charges were dropped.
