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 ...

I have never been fond of Kanye and seeing this behavior tells me I was right. No excuses for this kind of behavior from celebs. You knew what you were getting into when you sought the spotlight, so take in like a man instead of a crazed mouse!

OK, this is how WEIRD I think this whole situation is : 1) He hates all paparazzi; 2) Kim makes her living off being photographed & her every move is recorded 4 her stupid a$$ show !! Why & I repeat Why would he even stoop 2 her level - I'm sure he can & has been w/ much classier women !! The questions keep on lingering......

Nobody made him walk into the pole, he did that all by himself, so why get mad at the paps? I have to admit, it was kind of funny!!!

I assume the photographer didn't have a license to carry concealed, or else he would have defended himself with deadly force (which would clearly have been justified). I don't care how rich you are, but if you go around constantly acting like a (faux-) thug, yer gonna get smoked.

What an *******. The only reason he is a rich celebrity is because people know who he is and see his PICTURES in the press. Acting like this makes him looks like the ******* that he is.

Regardless of how one feels towards the Kanye and the Kardashians there needs to be strict paparazzi laws here in the United States much like France.


The paparazzi have no right to be gathered like packs of dogs outside of Hollywood hot spots. They absolutely have no right to be inside or outside of airports!

Oh get over yourself. Can't take the fame? Your fault for knocking up Kim Kardashian. Also, poor photog.
Should have watched where you walked then, Kayne. No one to blame but yourself for walking like that.

I understand Kanye may want privacy with his pregnant partner but does he understand the life & business she leads? Kim relies on media attention in her private life to promote her business, reality tv show & celebrity. To suddenly now act as though they don't want the attention is hypocritical and need to make it public they don't want this attention, otherwise they ARE ASKING FOR IT!!!!
