Kanye West grapples with paparazzo in airport bust-up

Kanye West was involved in a fracas outside a Los Angeles airport on Friday (19Jul13) after confronting a paparazzo and wrestling him to the ground.

The Stronger hitmaker jetted into LAX airport and was making his way to his chauffeured car when he spotted a man filming him on a video recorder.

Video footage of the incident shows West shouting, "Don't talk to me!" before rushing at the unnamed man and wrestling him to the ground. The paparazzo then ran away from the star, who made his way to his waiting car.

The man was later treated by airport medics and taken to hospital.

The rapper previously lashed out at snappers in May (13) after he walked into a street sign, and he was charged with three criminal misdemeanours when he smashed a photographer's camera at LAX in 2009.
