This is LA. Of course he won't suffer any real legal consequences. But because of his pap run-ins, he will now insist on moving to France with his demon spawn. His simpleton pig baby mama can come too if she wants. Pimp Mama Kris will never allow this. Let the games begin...

Sure hope TMZ is there when he gets arrested and put in handcuffs! I want to see that picture. Poor North, she will grow up being so ashamed of her parents behavior.

Angry black man syndrome. This is why racial relations rarely change.

How crazy is he going to be when he's out with his daughter and they try to get a picture I understand the paparazzi can be annoying but he should of stayed away from the Kardashians then who would care about him. I still don't know why people follow the Kardashians what do they do besides try and endorse everything on the planet oh ya and make sex tapes

Are you all ****ing retarded? He barely touched him. I you think that was assault, you either didn't watch the video or have lived very sheltered lives.

**** me, americans are stupid. Probably due to all the inbreeding.

The real reason Kanye is so pissed is because Kim's after baby body is disgusting and he can't tap that 21 yr old Canadian bartender any more.

I'm sure that TMZ is looking forward to having "wall to wall coverage" of Kanye when it comes time for his big court date over this incident.

Lots of juicy Lindsay Lohan type drama ... Kanye West tough guy style. I'm sure we'll be seeing lots of sneers, dirty looks and gangbanger style "evil eye" looks from him.

FUN, FUN, FUN
