Kanye West just revealed that paparazzi runs in his blood and that his father was a paparazzo himself.
TMZ is reporting that during deposition for a suit filed by photographer Daniel Ramos against Kanye West for an altercation in 2013, the 37-year-old rapper revealed to Ramos’ attorney that his father was a celebrity photographer. “My father was a paparazzo himself,” he stated, adding that he wasn’t raised to, “be out here wrestling with random paparazzi in front of LAX.”
According to the report, Kanye also explained that he has respect for some paparazzi, but that Ramos was asking “dumb sh*t.”
Yeezy pled no contest earlier this year to a misdemeanor battery charge from Ramos for trying to take his camera outside of LAX airport. He has been placed on 24 months probation, must attend 24 anger management therapy sessions, pay for the broken camera and do 250 hours of community service.
