Kanye West is known for his dislike of the paparazzi, even going as far as to anger a lot of people by comparing the intrusion of paparazzi to rape:
“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherf*****s following me. Everybody here, they like sex, right? Sex is great when you and your partner be like ‘hey, this is what we both want to do. But if one of those people don’t want to do that constitute, that’s called rape. That is called violation.”
So, it came as a surprise to basically everybody, when Kanye recently revealed that his dad was actually a paparazzo!
The admission came during a deposition in which Kanye is being sued by paparazzo, Daniel Ramos after an incident in which Kanye grabbed his camera and got more handsy than he probably should have…
Kanye said: “My father was a paparazzo himself. My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counsellor.”
The rapper, who is married to Kim Kardashian, went on to say that not all paparazzi are bad: “Sometimes I get in the car with paparazzi. Paparazzi help me to park. The paparazzi watch my car and make sure the cops don’t give me tickets. There are some nice guys out here trying to just feed their family. And then there’s a*****es like the guy you’re representing.”
Sounds like this guy really got under Kanye’s skin – we wonder what he said?!
Well, something Kanye didn’t like, that’s for sure: “And this guy is asking me about dumb sh**. So, you know, I’m sorry that i tried to grab his camera … I’m not here to hurt people.”
Despite the rapper’s heartfelt pleas he was sentenced to 250 hours of community service, two years probation and 24 anger management sessions. Yikes! We think he’ll think twice before losing that temper again!
