The birth of his first child, North West, hasn't made Kanye West less petulant, as evidenced by his recent attack on a TMZ cameraman.
Kanye was at the Los Angeles LAX airport and attempted to disguise himself by covering his head with a hoodie and avoiding eye contact with other travelers. A paparazzo spotted him, however, and cordially approached Kanye, telling the rapper he was a big fan of his music.
At first Kanye was relatively civil as well, calmly telling the cameraman he appreciated the kind words, but the rapper said he didn't want any member of the paparazzi to talk to him or anyone in his entourage. Kanye said all of this while sticking his palm into the lens of the paparazzo's camera.
"Don't talk, don't talk to me. I don't want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know, and tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows, don't talk to themselves--don't talk ever again," Kanye said.
Even after the tongue-lashing, the cameraman still followed the rapper and continued his strategy of killing Kim Kardashian's boyfriend with kindness.
"I do love you though Kanye. What about The Throne 2 with Jay-Z, people are pumped? the TMZ videographer continued, referring to the sequel to the collaborative album Watch The Throne.
It's at this point Kanye lost his cool and charged towards the paparazzo, grabbing his camera.
Kanye has a tumultuous history with TMZ's cameramen, enough to fill and entire Youtube channel in fact. Back in 2008, Kanye was arrested for smashing a photographer's equipment at the very same airport.
