Kanye West had another terse encounter with a paparazzo at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Friday (12Jul13) after demanding the chatty videographer stop talking to him or "anyone that anyone knows".
The rapper was caught on camera arriving at LAX to catch a flight out of L.A. and offered up an odd rant about his privacy as the TMZ.com cameraman shot footage and professed his love and admiration for the hitmaker.
West raged, "I appreciate that but don't talk... don't talk to me... I don't want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know... and tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows... Don't talk to themselves... Don't talk ever again."
The pap refused to heed West's warning and when he asked about a possible sequel to the rapper's Watch the Throne album with Jay-Z, Kanye snapped and charged the guy, snatching for his video camera.
West, who was arrested for smashing a TMZ.com staffer's equipment at the same airport in 2008, has become paparazzi prey ever since he started dating Kim Kardashian, who gave birth to the couple's first child last month (Jun13).
The pair has had several run-ins with members of the photographic media in recent weeks.
