Kanye West Avoids Felony for Paparazzi Scuffle But He Could Still Be in Trouble (VIDEO)

GossipMonger 3

Kanye WestKanye West and Kim Kardashian got a piece of news they've been waiting for since July. The rapper and new father will not be facing felony charges for one of his (many) scuffles with paparazzi -- this one last month at the Los Angeles airport when he was caught on video lunging at the cameras.


Turns out the DA's office took into account Kanye's clean record and the fact that no weapon was used before deciding not to prosecute.

But all is not perfect in Kimye-land. The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office may not be interested in pursuing felony charges, but baby North West's daddy may still have to pay the piper for snapping at the paps.

The case is now in the hands of the city attorney's office, which has the option to hit Kanye with misdemeanor charges in the case. 

The irony of Kanye's legal trouble in the case is not lost on anyone who listened to the video of the incident. Kanye was heard saying to the photographer in question that he (the photographer) was just trying to get Kanye in trouble, baiting him so the rapper would have to pay big money for hurting him ... seconds later, the video shows Kanye moving in on the cameraman. Check out below:



Do you think Kanye should be charged?

Even if he had committed a felony, he still would not have been charged. It seems all celebrities are above the law - what shame.
