Kanye West joins the pantheon of musicians (Bjork, Miley, Akon, just to name a few) who have physically lashed out at paparazzi. But the battle rages on as Daniel Ramos, the photographer whom West engaged with, is now suing him, reports Hip Hop Wired. Ramos claims he spent two weeks in crutches and continues to use a cane after the altercation, which can be seen below.
The scene unfolded at LAX airport, as Ramos asked West, “Why can’t we talk to you?” while cameras swarmed and flashes went off. “What you’re trying to do is get me in trouble, so I’ll have to pay you $250,000,” West replied before forcibly grabbing Ramos’ camera and driving off.
Ramos is now serving West with a lawsuit for assault, battery, and interference with Daniel’s civil rights. West has yet to make a statement about the incident.
