Kanye West breaks up a fight between photographers trying to take pictures of him

Kanye West

KANYE West became an unlikely peacemaker yesterday when he came to the aid of two photographers who were fighting over him.

The rapper had to pull apart the two men as they came to blows trying to get a good candid shot of Kanye at Los Angeles airport.

Kanye, 38, had just arrived on a flight and was mobbed by fans as he came into the busy terminal but happily stopped and signed autographs.

But he was forced to step in as two photographers got into a heated tussle with each other as they fought and tried to grab each other’s camera equipment.

Yeezy pulled the two men apart and held one, who appeared to have been injured, to calm him down.

And he was soon smiling again as he hugged his knight in shining armour to say thank you.


It was something of a role reversal for the star, who had a very public altercation with a photographer in 2013 at the same airport, for which he was charged with misdemeanour battery and sentenced to two year probation.

His good deed couldn’t have come at a better time for the star who has been generating headlines for all the wrong reasons in the last couple of weeks.

He begged Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for £1billion (£600million) after revealing he was £36 million ($53million) in debt before declaring that Taylor Swift was only famous because of him in another one of his famous Twitter rants.

Something that prompted Hollywood actresses Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn to poke fun at him.

The three stars are currently filming new movie Bad Mom, and Kristen posted a snap of the three of them holding utility lighters on her Twitter page with the hashtags #prayingforkanye #BADMOMS
