(AllHipHop News) Kanye West has been attached to the paparazzi since birth. During the deposition of the lawsuit between paparazzi photographer Daniel Ramos and Kanye West, West reveals his father’s past photography history.
Back in March, Kanye West pleaded no contest to a civil lawsuit from paparazzi photographer Daniel Ramos, whom he had a physical altercation with outside of LAX airport in July 2013. During the deposition stage of the civil lawsuit, West revealed to Ramos’ lawyer Nate Goldberg that his father was also a paparazzo:
‘My father was a paparazzo himself. My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counselor,
Perhaps more shocking than that admission is West explaining how paparazzi members have helped him against the law. According to West, paparazzi photographers have kept him from breaking the law on numerous occasions:
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.
While West pleaded no contest, he does maintain that he did not assault the photographer. West explains he “tried to stop his camera and stuff, he fell down, faked it and everyone was saying “Why did you hit this guy?” I didn’t hit him.”
West was sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger management therapy sessions and 250 hours of community service following his no contest plea.
