Kanye West Sued by Injured Paparazzo Over LAX Camera Scuffle

Daniel Ramos, a paparazzo who claims that
West put him on crutches, says that he is
suing the rapper because he doesn’t ‘want
what happened to me to happen to anyone else’.
Daniel Ramos, a
photographer who was
involved in a camera
scuffle with Kanye West
at LAX in July, has filed
an assault and battery
lawsuit against the
“Black Skinhead” rapper.
Accompanied by his
attorney Gloria Allred,
Ramos spoke to reporters
in a press conference on
Wednesday, August 21.
During the press
conference, Ramos claimed that West’s action
caused injury to his leg. He apparently was
forced to use crutches for two weeks following
the incident and is using cane. “He’s still in
pain,” Allred added, as quoted by Wenn.
The high-profile attorney also revealed in the
Wednesday event that she alerted West’s
attorney, saying that her client sued the
rapper for assault, battery and interference
with his civil rights. “It will be important for
Kanye to apologize. That would be a start…
Kanye needs to do the right thing,” she
Speaking of his reason to sue, Ramos said, “I
was just trying to do my job. I don’t want what
happened to me to happen to anyone else.”
Ramos’ attorney also filed restraining order
against the rapper.
West was passing through a crowd of
photographers who waited for him at Los
Angeles International Airport when the
incident happened back on July 19. A video
obtained by TMZ shows the rapper turned to
one of the photographers and said, “What
you’re trying to do is get me in trouble, so I
step out and have to pay you like $250,000,”
before wrestling Ramos.
Last week, the L.A. County district attorney’s
office decided not to file a felony charge.
However, the case was referred to the city
attorney who could file misdemeanor charge.
