Kanye West attacked a photographer again, you ask? Not exactly. Photographer Michael Vasquez just sued Kanye for allegedly beating him up (with a little help from his security), but the incident actually went down quite a while ago. How long ago, you ask? May 2008, when Kanye performed at a Casio Anniversary party. That’s two and a half years! Dude wasn’t even abusing auto-tune yet! How did this guy stay quiet when Kanye was arrested for smashing a camera a few months later?
According to the suit, West followed his performance (which featured topless women wearing space helmets) by joining his goons in a little paparazzi beatdown, causing “physical, mental and emotional illness” for Vasquez. “His agents, servants and/or employees acting in the course and within the scope of their employment, detained and/or threatened and/or caused plaintiff to suffer injuries.” The pap’s lawyer wouldn’t comment on the delay, but if Kanye and George W. Bush could work out their grievances, surely these two can as well.
