On Kanye West‘s “New Slaves” he raps, “‘l’ll move my family out the country. So you can’t see where I stay.” Upon returning to LA from a trip out of the country, the paparazzi were waiting for him at the airport. Kanye, who was visibly already in a poor mood, warned the photographers to leave him alone. Although Kanye knows that he’s going to have to pay up for attacking this guy, it seems that $250,000 isn’t enough to stop him from whooping his ass.
TMZ is reporting that Kanye West has been named a felony suspect in the LAX attack. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that “police suspect Kanye committed an attempted robbery when he assaulted a photog at the airport and tried to jack his camera.”
While the L.A. District Attorney’s office has opted not to press felony charges (as was initially suggested after the incident), there is still a possibility he’ll be charged with a misdemeanor.
Now, as THR reports, the videographer is being represented by Gloria Allred, a high-profile attorney known for representing controversial cases. Allred will appear alongside the videographer to announce a lawsuit against Kanye at a news conference today.
Allred will try to shame celebrity culture at large, working to “strongly condemn the support that some celebrities have give Kanye West for his attack on the ‘paaprazzi,'” she wrote in a statement, via THR.
