Kanye West’s dad was a paparazzo according to Kanye..
Kanye was in a deposition in a civil lawsuit brought on by a celebrity photographer when he revealed the news..
And we laughed and laughed. J.K. We didn’t laugh. But maybe we did, a little.
That’s not all Kanye’s dad was, according to the rapper:
My father was a paparazzo himself. My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counselor.
This is how we feel when Kanye talks..
Smile, nod, agree, and don’t make any sudden movements.
My mother was the first black chair of the English department in Chicago State. They didn’t raise me to be out here wrestling with random paparazzi in front of LAX.
Okay, so this one is quite impressive.
Kanye also claims he likes the paparazzi:
Sometimes I get in the car with the paparazzi. Paparazzi help me to park.
Well, that’s kind of nice.
What else does the paparazzi do for you Kanye?
The paparazzi watch my car and makes sure that cops don’t give me tickets. There are some nice guys out here trying to just feed their family.
At first we’re all ‘This doesn’t sound like the Kaye we know..’
Then he added:
And then there’s a******* like the guy you’re representing.
And we’re all “There he is..”
The night of the alleged paparazzo attack Kanye claimed he had just heard his grandfather Portwood Williams Senior was on his death bed and he was in no mood for questions:
And this guy is asking me about dumb s***… So, you know, I’m sorry that I tried to grab his camera. But I obviously didn’t try to hurt him. I’m not here to hurt people.
This is a Kanye we really like..He’s being awfully likable.
The paparazzo in the alleged attack claims he suffered physical and emotional abuse.
