Kanye West serving community sentence lecturing at fashion schools

Newlywed rapper Kanye West has been spending his community service sentence teaching at fashion schools across California.

The Stronger hitmaker was ordered to complete 250 hours of community service in March (14) as part of his punishment for a misdemeanor battery charge relating to a clash with paparazzo Daniel Ramos at Los Angeles International Airport last summer (13).

He has since found a way to serve his time and indulge in his love of design by working with students at various colleges, where he has been taking part in class lessons to share his own experiences in the fashion world.

West was photographed at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College on Monday (23Jun14) in what TMZ.com editors report was his third visit in the past six weeks.

The hip-hop star, who pleaded no contest to the battery charge, was also sentenced to attend anger management classes and serve two years' informal probation.

He still faces a civil suit from Ramos, amid allegations West punched him in an unprovoked attack.
