Kanye West Claiming Self Defense In Criminal Battery Case

September 24, 2013 11:00 AM by Suzy Kerr

They may want to change Keeping Up with the Kardashians to Keeping Up with Kanye, because the drama surrounding the rapper’s recent run-in with the paparazzi just keeps unfolding. Back in July, Kanye West was involved in an altercation with a paparazzo at LAX, and the pap filed battery charges against the Yeezus singer. West’s response: Ain’t nobody got time for that, it was self-defense!

According to court documents, the photographer, Daniel Ramos, says he was simply standing with other paps near the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX. When West walked by, Ramos asked if he could speak to him. That’s when Yeezy snapped, shoving the photog and trying to steal his camera. Ramos claims he was injured during the mini-brawl and is suing West for undisclosed damages on the grounds of criminal battery and attempted grand theft. Formal charges have been made, and an arraignment is scheduled for October 10. If West is found guilty, he could face up to a year in prison.

But Kim Kardashian’s man is fighting back, claiming that Ramos was the instigator. West’s response to the lawsuit says that the photog caused him to believe his safety was in immediate danger, and his actions were merely self-defense. In unrelated news, Kanye West has also declared himself to be the number one rock star on the planet. Hmmmm.

So what will Kim Kardashian and baby North West do if daddy Kanye is thrown in jail? How will Kanye fare in the big house? And more importantly, what will the world do without their biggest rock star? We can only dream that the drama could unflod on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but with Kanye putting the kibosh on filming his family, we may be out of luck!

Are you buying that Kanye West was acting in self defense? Comment below and let us know.
