AceShowbiz - Kanye West's beef with paparazzi still continues. The 42-year-old "Donda" artist and his family were out and about when he was involved in a verbal argument with photographers on Sunday, June 4 in Los Angeles.
The rapper was with her new wife Bianca Censori and his youngest son Psalm during the outing. Ye wasn't happy being hounded by photographers, so he decided to stop his car and deal with them himself.
A video obtained by TMZ saw the Chicago star yelling at the paps and demanding that they stop following him. "Like seriously, bro. Like I want is you to f**king stop bothering me," the Yeezy designer snapped at the paparazzi.
The news outlet noted that the incident took place when Ye and his family were either going to church or leaving the church.
Despite Ye's confrontation, the paparazzi didn't seem to leave the musician alone. Some pictures that circulated online featured Ye playing with Psalm, who brought his bike, in the lot of whatever facility they were at for church. Ye, who donned a black top with padded shoulders and leggings-shoes, could be seen carrying his little boy's bike with the latter riding it.
In contrast to his father, Psalm rocked an all-white outfit for the occasion. Meanwhile, Ye's wife Bianca opted for a rather interesting fashion choice. She wore an all-black outfit that included a huge foam circle that circled her body and covered her shoulders and neck. Her head, face, and entire body, meanwhile, were covered in a thin black gauze that also restricted her arm movement. She paired the look with knee-high black leather boots.
The incident arrives after Ye was sued by a photographer. Nichol Lechmanik accused the rapper of assault, battery and negligence after he threw the paparazzo's phone into the street during a heated argument earlier this year.
In a press conference on Thursday, June 1, Nichol insisted that she was just doing her job as a celebrity photojournalist. "He reached into my car as if he were going to hit me, he grabbed my phone out of my hand and then angrily threw it into the street," she said. "He caused so much fear that I have not been the same since."
"He has no right to assault me, batter me or cause me to be afraid to pursue my profession," Lechmanik, who became emotional, continued. "I want Ye to know that he cannot do what he did to me without facing consequences. I am determined to stand up for myself to let him know that he must change his abhorrent behavior."
In her lawsuit, the paparazzo is seeking damages, claiming she sustained "great mental and emotional pain." She also claimed that she suffers from "lost earnings" as she's prevented from doing her job. The suit additionally calls West's conduct in the incident "willful, wanton and malicious."
