0719_britney_spears_kanye_west_x17_akm-gsi_article
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.

I admit Kanye was taunted but as an adult he has to respect our laws. You just cannot punch someone because they bother you verbally. What I like to see is for Kanye to learn a lesson and spend time in jail and I would like to see the photographer get no money from any lawsuit. Or if the judge to give him one dollar and the photographer has to pay his own lawyer fees. The photographer is a complete ******* and is looking for a pay day but on the other hand Mr. West is a thug and has anger management problems. I worry about what this man will do to a woman and a baby when he gets angry. Just like Chris Brown. These are two men that I do not want my children looking up to.

Did KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN flee to Miami,Florida to escape the family drama?? What's in Florida that California doesn;t have? She probably has more money squirreled away than any of them. TMZ,

That paparazzi is an instigator. It is obvious that it is his M.O. to instigate and push as many buttons as possible to get this outcome.

Why don't they ever fight back. Like Kayne can even fight. Probably slaps like a girl. I would LOVE to see a photog fight back and punch his lights out.

This case is such a slam dunk even those incompetent DA's from OJ's case (Marcia Clark and Chris Darden) could convict Kanye.

Man, Kanye West needs to get a life and just shut the **** up. His dumb ass should have known that once you become famous. You dont have a private life no more!! Everything is known to the world.

He never speaks of the alleged baby. Complications there?? In Jenner's sociopathic world, everything is always rosy. New mother's don't stay trapped in the house, especially when they have 2 nannies. What gives? They are hiding something~

Taking pictures when people don't want them taken may be your "right" but being a dick has consequences. You can't have it both ways. If you're going to harass people, expect them to get mad.
