5:28 PM PT --
The victim wants to press charges against Kanye ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.  What's more, our sources say he's been interviewed by cops and they've determined he did indeed suffer injuries during the attack.  Cops will refer the case to the D.A. as a felony attempted robbery and not a battery case.  The routine is to go after the suspect for the most serious charge.

Perhaps everyone is misjudging Kanye. He's really a very nice, sweet man! Kris Jenner said so!

What a piece of sh*t! Kanye wants the fame without having to deal with the paps. You have to take the good with the bad. As a celeb, it's unfortunately a part of that lifestyle. GET OVER IT! There was a time when I thought you were talented, but now I know that you're nothing but a sellout. ...hooking up with a fake ass kardashian!??! Seriously, you must be desperate for fame!

Well there is one way Kanye can make all of this papp. stuff go away, IF he really wanted it to? I believe celebrities are harassed by papps. and I believe there needs to be a legal line drawn, but for now, he needs to "man up" and not allow his personal demon triggers to be set off. Seems every little thing makes him crazed, always has. He has a short fuse and makes mountains out of molehills, kinda like his own narcissistic view of himself.

So, let's be clear...your GF makes all her money by just being out there in front of the cameras, and you make yours partly as a celebrity. So now you are going to get upset at the paparazzii? They MADE you two. Sure, they can go far but there is no free lunch (well, except for them)
