Kanye West Sued

Photog Says Rapper

Put Him on Crutches

breaking news

Kanye West left an innocent photog in crutches after a brutal assault at LAX last month -- when Kanye attempted to wrestle away the pap's camera -- so says the photog himself, and now he's filed a lawsuit against the rapper.

Daniel Ramos appeared with his lawyer Gloria Allred at a news conference Wednesday, where Gloria announced the lawsuit for assault, battery, and interference with Daniel's civil rights (in this case free speech).

Daniel -- who called himself a "filmmaker" -- says he spent two weeks on crutches after the attack, and has been walking with a cane for some time. He says he's still in pain.

Gloria argued the attack sets a dangerous precedent for celebrity-on-photog violence, especially now that various celebs are actually celebrating unprovoked attacks on photogs.

At one point, Gloria went after Kirstie Alley, Cher, and even Kylie Jenner for applauding Kanye's attack on Twitter.

Gloria says she's also asking the court to issue a restraining order against Kanye.

Ramos is suing for unspecified damages.

Celebs work hard yes they do but as a celeb also the fame, they love the camera when it promotes them but show the real random slips of real life and they hate on the Paps, My dear nephew Chris Guerra lost his life 1/1/13 filming a traffic stop working as a Pap,The hate words were stabbing words , Miley Cyrus was very mean to our family, remember these guys are just out making a living like everyone else,
