Kanye West

I've Got Gloria Allred Problems Now

Kanye West is about to get pounded by a woman -- Gloria Allred.

Allred just said she's repping the photog Kanye attacked at LAX last month and says she's filing a lawsuit against the rapper.

What's complicating things for Kanye -- the L.A. City Attorney is currently mulling over whether to prosecute Kim K's baby daddy for vandalism and battery in connection with the attack.   Up to this point the likely outcome was that -- even if a criminal case were filed -- the photog would make a financial settlement and the case would go away.

It's possible Allred will try to score a big payday for the photog and the case would still be dropped, but let's be honest ... this case will be high profile ... which is Allred's sweet spot.   Short story -- the chances Kanye will be prosecuted just got way bigger.

Gloria's holding a news conference at 1 PM PT.  We'll be livestreaming.

This is one of those times I'm on the paparazzi's side. I saw the video clip, and the guy did nothing to cause Kanye to attack him. If Kanye don't want to answer questions, then all he has to do is remain silent, he can't demand that nobody is allowed to try and ask questions.

Flogging a dead horse for profit. The greed and opportunistic desperation of Allred and these paps to score a big payoff is ridiculous. The pap looked like he was giggling when he and Kanye were tussling. No doubt he was thinking of the money he hoped to make with his planned ploy with a celebrity.

Right on - I can't stand Glory-hole Allred but if there's ever a case of a dude needing to be dragged through the mud by this broad, it's Jizzus.

Kenya will probably just get fined, probation and a little community service. He's such a douchebag.

When Kanye was attacking that photog Kanye said "This is going to cost me $250,000" and it looks like he was right. Next time Kanye, think, yes; but then DON'T act.

I am so torn...do I root for Gloria because I hate Kanye, or do I root for Kanye because I hate Gloria?

Jenner probably paid Allred to represent this pap for this publicity. You know how this will turn out... Standard procedure with celebrities. Charges dropped and settled out of court w/ $$$. Of course the settlement will come from the media attention profits and ratings.

He's hoping he gets locked up. Then he won't have to be seen with the heffer and her calf he fathered.
