No love lost between Kanye West and paparazzi


There’s not much love lost between off-duty celebrities and the paparazzi, but Kanye West really, really doesn’t like them.

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.
