Kanye West


On Paparazzi

9/27/2013 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West
went nuclear again on the paparazzi -- but this time Kanye has good reason to be pissed.

Kanye was at his bachelor pad at 4 AM, when several photogs (not TMZ) approached him as he was getting in his car to leave .... and asked about his feud with Jimmy Kimmel.

It appears Kim is also there.  Sources say he and Kim were on their way to the airport with the final stop -- Paris.

Take a look at the video.  An infuriated Kanye lunges at the photog but it does not appear there is any physical contact.

It looks as if the photogs are very close to Kanye's driveway -- but the photo agency insists they did not trespass.


As you know, Kanye is currently facing charges of battery and attempted grand theft in connection with the LAX attack, where a photog claims Kanye injured him.

TMZ broke the story ... Kanye's reps have advised him to avoid LAX ... specifically so there would be no other blow-ups with photogs.

If the paparazzi would back the f*** off and take two large steps away from the celebs. No, they rush towards, have no respect for boundaries and the ignore the celebs when they request to be left alone. How the hell does that work? There should be a law to say that they're only allowed on special occasions (awards, red carpet, extra..) and when requested by celeb. After that it's called go screw yourselves you whiny bastards. It's unbelievable how they're allowed to treat humans

Okay, 4am is out of line, but I will never understand why celebrities voluntarily choose to live in LA, right in the midst of Hollywood and yet expect not to get harassed by paparazzi. If you really wanted privacy, why not just move somewhere hmm.. I dunno, private?

I find it funny he was talking about it being 4am and he revs that jet engine to make as much noise as possible. I wish I was paparazzi and he came at me. I would be famous.

Kim OwnZ KanGay now, his life as a closet leather-pants wearing Queen are over. Soon she will have 1/2 or all of his fortune. For a guy who wrote a song about Gold-Diggers, he Hooked-Up with the Biggest Digger in the Mud-Shark Ocean.

This don't make no sense and judging by most of the comments I now know that "RESPECT" don't exist anymore. I understand that they have a job to do but damn-near in his garage...come on now...when is enough enough? Not to mention at $am when majority are sleep they are outside someone's house harrassing them then try to say he's going nuts...WOW TMZ...I would go effing NUTS to. I don;t like anyone coming to my home after a certain time...I don't care about Kanye or Kim but they deserve just as much "RESPECT" as any other person which includes you and me...Going Nuts...Wow...speechless

These photogs should not be approaching Mr. West while he is in his garage, and otherwise pestering him. I would be pretty annoyed if I went out early in the morning and was approached by people asking me goofy questions and snapping away with their cameras. Now that he has a reputation for reacting they will never leave him alone, though. Too Bad...

First, West could have shut the garage while he was inside the vehicle--it's called using a remote. Instead of ignoring photogs, West engages them even after they politely gave West morning wishes, even complimenting him. The real clincher was West’s statement, , "out here making money [taking pics of West]." Well, isn't that exactly what West tries doing when he works in the music industry, etc.,etc.? Yet, apparently, making money ONLY applies to West. Secondly, West could have immediately placed his belongings in the trunk on the way to driver’s door, but instead closes the car door, then opens it again all while ENGAGING photogs without pause. The photogs did not act aggressive, did nothing other than taking photos, politely asking questions, making positive statements all while West, not the photogs, is screaming expletives and insults without letting up at 4:00AM.

Even if it is/was 4:00AM, it is well-known several cities, including LA, are places that never sleep, 24/7 activities and if West didn’t want a person(s) talking to him, he could have said NOTHING. West’s “don’t talk to me . . . stop asking me questions . . .” is ridiculous given it’s America & last time I checked, photogs activity it's protected under the Constitution, it’s called freedom of speech and press -- just like West is protected for all the vomit he spews in music and on a daily basis to anyone listening to him. Look, West could have even asked the unidentified man, who came out towards video’s end, to place his belongings in trunk but, NO, West continued being aggressive towards photogs. It is beyond clear West relishes being the protagonist. Obviously, craves confrontation, being hostile, aggressive, mean-spirited and going into relentless tirades of expletives and believes he’s beyond reprieve. And, if that wasn’t enough, West stoops to a middle school level by name calling, “blood-sucking mosquitos . . . mosquito bully” then after getting into the car, starts by revving motor repeatedly, which is a BLATANT indicator of aggressive behavior.

Sorry for the above/below comments, but if West didn’t want photogs taking pics, funny how he hooked up, even having a child with, one member of the media whor# mongering families, Kardashians, so it speaks voluminous and voluminous of West re attention. It’s unconscionable West didn’t know exactly what he was in for. Moreover, West is addicted to the love/hate relationship with photogs (and many, many others). There is countless well-known people that get followed and have pics taken and NEVER, EVER get into it with photogs the way West does, constantly engaging people even if photogs are polite, using aggressive tone/behavior all the while hurling expletives, name-calling & affront. Lunging at people as if West was going to get physical with them (has a history of physical altercations dating back 2008). West LOVES being the protagonist, craves the attention, addicted to aggression then projects his failures or corporations not endorsing him, not because he has a NASTY personality (because he does), but West’s favorite projection for not getting his way, White America.
