Kanye West

SECRET PLAN

To Avoid Photog Confrontation

9/25/2013 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0924-kanye-LAX

Kanye West has been instructed  to stay clear of the paparazzi at LAX ... to the point of flying hundreds of miles out of his way to avoid fresh confrontations ... TMZ has learned.

Kanye -- who has been flying frequently -- is finding all sorts of round-about ways of getting from L.A. to various destinations. 

One thing's clear ... getting into another paparazzi confrontation at LAX will be disastrous for his pending criminal case.  TMZ broke the story ... Kanye is being charged with battery and attempted grand theft for allegedly attacking a yappy photog.

So, for example, we found out ... Kanye and Kim Kardashian are going to Paris later this week, but they will be flying to another airport via private jet, where they will pick up a non-stop commercial flight to gay Paree.

We're told the private jet for the first leg will cost Kanye $5,000.  We're guessing he can afford it.

AHAHAHAHHA! This story is chock full'o SHYT! You can't fly a private jet from Burbank to Vegas for less then 13K ONE-WAY! To take a "heavy" jet (meaning LARGE cabin) to Paris you're talking not a penny UNDER 100K...so where is this 5K coming from?
.
Secondly WHY report this at all. TMZ did you forget that before KIMMIE birthed her "baby" - Invis-A-baby - you ran a story saying Kon-yeah was shuttling between LA and Paris on PRIVATE JETS so he cud be with his "baby mama" for all her "doctor" appointments? You didnt run stories then (well you did to do damage control). And to spin this as Kon-Yeah's way of avoiding the paps...BS.! Rumor has it he's loaded so why run a story about what he's spending?

they're flying private (cough cough) so they wont be forced to "reveal" NORF in a public place. I bet the REAL reason no one has seen that baby is because it's Butt FUGLY. It probably looks like a Kongay more then Kim (Kim doesn't look like who she really used to be).

Seriously, what was Kim thinking when she got mixed up with Kanye, and now she has this precious, innocent child with this man. He comes off as arrogant, rude, disrespectful, controlling and a hot head. He definitely proved he was all of these when he pulled the stunt with Taylor Swift.

Here it is .. It's called a choice. No other high-profile celebrity goes through what Kanye and Kim does at LAX because they make better choices. Plenty of celebs fly in/out of LAX - from Rihanna to Jennifer Anniston to Denzel. Others, who understand the type of frenzy their presence will cause, make different choices which benefit themselves, other passengers and the safety of everyone. For instance, Beyoncé, Oprah, Will Smith, Gaga, and Jennifer Lopez fly private. It's easier, they can afford it and they avoid being harassed, causing delays and dangerous paparazzi crowds. But none of their brands need public spats to keep them relevant. Non-celebs and less rich people may have to fly commercial. These folks do not, particularly when they have the means to have other options. Should Kanye be able to fly from LAX if he wishes? Of course. But why do it when it causes so much drama. On the bright side, this is a win/win for the Kardashian brand.

Whew! Good thing no one told Harvey they're big "SECRET" about flying private. Geez, imagine had Harvey been told, he would have posted a story.

I have a curious question for all you people who hate the Kardashians..So if you think the show is either fake or you don't watch it at all and every person on earth knows the tabloids lie..What exactly are you basing your hate of them off of ? Assuming you don't know them personally and you think everything out there about them is fake, then how do you know you hate them..? I don't care enough to check answers, this is really just a question you should ask yourself .....

The press just loves this type of thing; it’s a moneymaker for sure. I bet some lazy photog is just dreaming of a big fat lawsuit so they can retire and live on the money. There are ways of taking pictures without being in someone’s face – it is rude and unprofessional, but then these aren’t professional photogs they are a disease. Going after children of celebs should be criminalized with hefty fines and jail time and put a stop to this insanity.

Of all the badass men in this world Kim K could have, could someone please tell me why she would have picked him? He is rude, arrongant, and a racist. He lacks respect and manners. Needless to say he is not one of my favorite celebs........
