LOS ANGELES—Police officials are investigating a photographer's allegations that Kanye West hit him at the LAX airport on Friday, July 19.
West was being videotaped and photographed by paparazzi at the airport when the rapper allegedly said, “What you're trying to do is get me in trouble, so I step out and have to pay you like $250,000.”
The video then shows West approaching the photographer and what looks to be the two men falling towards the ground.
The photographer reportedly told the Los Angeles Airport Police that he had been attacked by someone he was snapping pictures of. The individual was then taken to a local hospital to receive medical attention while the LAPD began investigating the allegations against West.
Police are reportedly referring the case to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office since the photographer wants to press charges against West.
