It seems Kanye West has changed his tune and lifted his strict ‘no-speaking ban’ on the paparazzi!
Earlier today, the anti-pap rapper had yet another run-in with TMZ’s cameras. The brave paparazzi dared to approach ‘Ye while he filled up his car in Calabasas. Rather than flip his lid (again) Kanye stopped and gave the photogs what they wanted: the gift of conversation.
West explained his previous freak outs, saying he felt like Daniel Ramos, one of the cameramen he got into a physical altercation with, set him up and pressed him at the wrong time. According to ‘Ye, the incident at LAX in July came just after he learned his grandfather was dying.
Kanye has been charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft in the incident.
He also goes on to explain that he reacts the way he does because he’s a protective papa. Yeezus fears his daughter will have to grow up being chased by the paparazzi.
Head over to TMZ for the full video of Kanye’s chat with the paps.
