It was bad timing...
Kanye West has revealed that his altercation with a photographer at LAX in July happened in part because he had learned his grandfather was dying. You know the report by now; Kanye was leaving LAX when paparazzo Daniel Ramos began peppering him with questions and he warned Ramos, but then went after him when the questions continued.
TMZ spoke with photographers today amicably, explaining that he thinks Ramos set him up by antagonizing him and that his emotional state contributed to his going after the man. Kanye held his own today and stayed cool, even as one photographer tried to get under his skin.
