The photog who was attacked by Kanye West at LAX Friday is the SAME paparazzo who was attacked by Britney Spears in the famous umbrella incident ... TMZ has learned.

The pap -- who goes by the name Dano -- was on the receiving end of crazy Britney's Mary Poppins-style attack back in 2007.  The word on the street was that Dano was more than a tad aggressive.

After the umbrella incident ... Dano put the umbrella (she left it on the street and he picked it up) on eBay.  He also put the Ford Explorer she dented on the website and the bidding reached more than $30k. 

But those figures are small potatoes ... we're told he also raked in a fortune from his video of the incident.

As for Friday's incident ... we broke the story .... Dano wants to press charges and Kanye is now a felony suspect for attempted robbery.

Wake up people, Kanye is telling them secrets; he told y'all in his song "New Slaves"..............."I'm bout to wild the F out, I'm going Bobby Bushay"......and later said"......then later said "I'm bout to air shtuff out now what the F they gon say now"......Well everything is smoke and mirrors, Kanye's message never comes across bcuz he's always painted as crazy, same as DMX, same as Katt Williams. Joke about race and sex, Rap about violence, drugs, and women, but mix politics or government in and watch what happens to people's careers and the timing of when they are in the news all the time.

Look at Tupac, rapped about Thug Life, women, violence, and was everywhere......the minute he started talking about change, he was dead in a few years; and that's because he had a voice that people listened to and took to heart...wake up SHEEPLE. Stop quick posting and look at the whole picture; you don't have to agree with me, just do some damn research

Too bad the people dano is stalking cant sue him for being a POS.

sounds like the photog is up to no good, and is a money grubber at the expense of people who he pushes to the edge. If he was harassed the way he harasses others, hed probably snap too, the only difference is it wouldnt make the TMZ front page

Kanye thinks he's God, and he seems mad as hell that the rest of us don't see it that way. And this relationship with Kim, and a new baby have not brought out the best in him.

Dude made it clear he didn't want to be bothered and this douche persisted. Don't care for Kanye, but honestly these paps constantly overstep their bounds all the time

I knew there was a reason the papz hid his face. He has done this before and for money. There is nothing wrong with him, he just saw an opportunity to get more money for the sleazy things he does. Again, I'm not a Kanye fan but bull$hit is bull$hit. Kanye stupidly engage this idiot & the papz want money, this is why he stalks the airport. Halle Berry should check to see if this is the idiot who stalks her & her family.
