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 ...

Yeah his kid ought to be proud of that in a few years.
The guy is certifiable and that's the exact reason his relationship with KK won't last.

Good thing the paps were there. Other wise this fool would have no one to blame hid childish and idiotic behavior on.
The photogs helped make his carrier. Without them many people would never know who this ass is.

I really think he does have a right to not be photographed hell i wouldn't even get in my mother in laws wedding photos last week. Imagine having your photo taking every time you did anything. then you slime balls post him hitting his head in a moment of pain and embarrassment. shame on you TMZ.

hahahaha as soon as they capture something embarrassing, all of a sudden he hates being photographed and filmed.. I wonder how long it'll be before he starts demanding that this video be pulled from the internet?

He's screwed if he doesn't like people to take pics of him. That's how Kim gets paid.

Because the gazillions of dollars you make off of the public doesn't mean a thing to you rich a-holes right? No one else deserves to make a living and pay their bills??? YOU signed on the dotted line Kanye, when you made your first million. SO SCREW YOU!!!!
