Kanye West has reportedly sought help from the police after getting into a verbal altercation with paparazzi.
According to TMZ, Ye showed up at Los Angeles County Sheriff’s West Hollywood Station on Tuesday afternoon (February 14), with law enforcement sources saying he was informing deputies about an interaction with paparazzi.
The Chicago rap mogul apparently claimed he had asked the paparazzi to stop recording him and his family earlier that day. When his request was ignored, an argument ensued and almost turned physical.
After filing the report, the Sheriff’s Department said they are looking into the alleged incident.
This is far from the first time Kanye West has had issues with paparazzi and people filming him.
In January, he was named as a suspect in a police investigation after he was captured confronting a woman who was filming him from her car.
“If I wanna go see my son at a game, y’all ain’t gonna run up on me like that. If I say stop – stop with your cameras,” Yeezy said before grabbing her phone and throwing it across the street.
Law enforcement from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department reportedly arrived shortly after, with the passenger’s video being provided as evidence.
In a separate paparazzi incident that same day, Kanye West pulled up alongside a male fan and asked him to stop taking photos when he was trying to spend quality time with his children.
“Would you want me to be running up on your kids’ games like that? I wanna just see my kids,” he said. “Everybody gotta stop when I see my kids. I don’t care how many of you there are.
“You wanna hear what I want you to do? I need to see my kids without you photographing me. It’s called human rights.”
