Kanye West 'Will Not Face Felony Charge After Paparazzi Scuffle'


Kanye West will reportedly not be charged with a felony following his scuffle with a paparazzi last month at Los Angeles International airport, but the rapper could allegedly still face misdemeanor charges, new reports state.

According to The Associated Press, the L.A County district attorney's office have allegedly decided not to file a felony charge, but could file the misdemeanor charge.

The video, taken on July 19th, shows Kanye getting a photographer in a headlock when he apparently made a comment to the star, resulting in him losing his temper.

Check out the clip below:

Prosecutors are said to have said that the pap "did not suffer any significant injury" following the attack, but it is "not yet clear if his camera was damaged."

A rep has been contacted for further comments.

Meanwhile, it looks like Kanye may also find himself at the centre of yet another legal battle, as him and Kim Kardashian are allegedly said to be "angry" after pics emerged of them taking baby North to a medical centre last week, with sources claiming that security guards may be to blame.

“Security guards are in trouble at building,” a source tells Hollywoodlife, adding: “They led Kim and Kanye into a specific entrance where there was a photographer hidden. Kim and Kanye had no clue this was happening or that anyone was hidden in the private garage. The security guards are allegedly getting investigated.”

The source says that Kanye and Kim believe the security guards must have known they were coming and allegedly called the photographers in order to make some extra money.

Insiders yesterday even suggested that Kanye thought that a Kardashian may be behind the pics, but Hollywoodlife's source says: “Kim’s family would never do that; their loyalty is to Kim, Kanye and North,” adding: “Kanye knows that and everyone is shocked that this happened.”

Reports that were revealed yesterday suggested that Kanye "went ballistic" over the newly released photos.

“[Kanye went] absolutely ballistic that a paparrazzo took the pictures of the family outing to baby North’s appointment with her pediatrician," a source reportedly told RadarOnline.

"Kanye was absolutely unaware that the photographer was in the parking garage of the medical facility.”
