Ya know, I can't stand this guy. He;s so full of himself it;s disgusting. That being said, I saw the footage of paps outside his house, at 3 or 4 am. It was still dark, and these a s s e s were waiting out there for him/them to come out, and I, just for a second, kind of sympathized with him. I mean really, that;s just too much. That was a different time and photographer.

I think ALL the paparazzi and all the tabloid press should ban together and have absolutely NOTHING to do with the Kardashians. No post, tweets, photos, videos... no nothing. Let see how much they like being left alone. I know I wouldn't mind not hearing another thing about any of them.

Kanye had to cancel his show here in Minneapolis yesterday. There aren't enough people interested in this self proclaimed genius - much less willing to PAY to see him.

I'm no fan of this guy, but it looks to me as if the photog assaulted him, not the other way around. Not physically, but certainly by not respecting his personal space. Have a little dignity, photogs, and stop poking the hornet's nest to get your crappy snapshot.

Gloria Allred, the chief beneficiary of all of this noise/sillyness?


"Not only was first one to the court this morning."


"But bought donuts all the way around."


Gloria said not to thank her, but to thank Ramos, as at the end of the day?


"He'll be billed for the donuts."

Kanye has been a douche his entire adult life. Do these idiots not understand that the sole purpose of these video paps is to instigate some type of verbal confrontation that sells? Just do what Courtney Cox did. IGNORE them. Don't answer a question. Don't respond. Don't make eye contact. Eventually they will realize they can't instigate a problem and they'll move on to the next sap. Paparazzi have moved on from many stars because they know they can't rile them up.
