Could his inherent hatred of the paps all be down to buried Daddy issues?!
Kanye West has revealed that his DAD worked as a paparazzi.
Yes, it turns out that rather unexpectedly Daddy West was an ol’ paparazzo! Bombshell, much?
The revelation came out during Kanye’s current course case for the whole ‘smacking a photographer in the face’ incident at LA airport last year.
“My father was a paparazzo himself. My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counselor,” the 37-year-old told the defense.
“My mother was the first black chair of the English department in chicago State. They didn’t raise me to be out here wrestling with random paparazzi in front of LAX,” he added.
Kanye then said that he does have respect for some paparazzi (the ones like his Dad, anyway) just not the one that he knocked out…
“Sometimes I get in the car with the paparazzi. Paparazzi help me to park,” he said.
Undeniably, very handy.
“The paparazzi watch my car and makes sure that cops don’t give me tickets. There are some nice guys out here trying to just feed their family. “
“And then there’s a******* like the guy you’re representing.’
A few bad apples springs to mind.
THE CASE CONTINUES!
