No love lost between Kanye West and paparazzi
The rapper was briefly arrested in northern England on Thursday night after an apparent altercation with a photographer outside a night club in the city of Newcastle.
Photographer Tony Blackburn claimed West lashed out as he was leaving the club with some female company, shoving the camera into the snapper’s face and causing a small cut on his nose.
British police didn’t think the incident merited a charge against West after questioning him about it. But it all sounded reminiscent of a scuffle West had in September at Los Angeles International airport with a photographer and a TV camerman that ended with a broken camera.
West wasn’t charged in that case either.
