Kanye West

MELTDOWN

Goes Berserk on Pap After Smashing Head on Sign

5/10/2013 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


So much for a cooler, calmer Kanye ...

West just emerged from a restaurant in L.A. and exploded on a photog -- not a TMZ guy -- screaming at the cameraman to stop taking photos, ASAP.

Minutes before the incident, Kanye had banged his head into a metal sign while trying to hide his face from a pack of paparazzi ... and blamed it on the snappers.

West restrained himself from going after the paps in the moments after the head-slamming, only to emerge from the eatery minutes later ... even angrier than he was before.

The pap told West he had just arrived on the scene -- and meant no harm.

West eventually turned around and went back into the restaurant. It's unclear if Kanye ever laid a hand on the photog.

Inhale, exhale ...

He's obviously stressed out of his mind. Must get annoying to have them around all day everyday. Although it is still odd the amount of anger from someone taking your picture.... Something I'm sure he's used to by now.

Dear Little Little ManBoy, Appreciate your pic being taken because it is the only thing keeping you in the spotlight. You are a joke that is no longer funny. Don't worry most gay guys that don't come out of the closet are angry too.

Im not particularly a Kanye/Kardashian fan, but can you really blame him for getting angry? I understand the photogs are doing their job(a ****ty job, but a job) but do they really need to always be in people's faces? they're just going out to lunch, who the hell wants to see pictures of that?

If photographers were following my every move, I'd go ballistic on them too. Give the celebrities some peace and quiet. They will be nicer to everybody.

That piece of **** low life lives in the US of A this a free focken country and we take pictures of who ever the hell we want to when out in public - get over yourself you piece of crap. That wimpy photog tried kissing ass and it doesn't work should have "accidently" smashed the camera in his face as he ran towards it in such an agressive way.

You guys do realize that the paps were probably notified that these 2 would be at a certain restaurant at a certain time?

You know he has to be stressing. Getting with Kim pretty much killed his career. He's taking out his frustrations on the wrong people.

I don't understand why the paps don't come prepared with bananas for Kanye. That animal constantly has titi attacks. Kim will one day get a black eye and someone seriously needs to put him in his place. His mother would not be proud. The paps are just trying to make a living...don't bully them Kanye.

Hey, maybe this run in with a pole tapped his frontal lobe hard enough to knock some sense into him. Who knows, he may wake up in the morning and look at Kim and say, what the f**k.

Let's see... you're famous and love media attention. You're dating and have impregnated a "famous" media wh0re... you go out to eat a public restaurant in Los Angeles. As long as the photographers remain on neutral, legal ground.. they can do whatever they darn well please. If you want privacy, there are plenty of ways to get it... eating out at a paparazzi hotspot isn't one of those ways.
