New father Kanye West got involved in an airport brawl with an LA-based photographer named Danny Ramos last July 19, a month after his girlfriend Kim Kardashian gave birth to their daughter North West.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office did not pursue to prosecute, however high-profile attorney Gloria Allred filed a civil lawsuit against the rapper, alleging assault, battery, negligence and violation of civil rights during the airport scuffle.
In a video footage, Kanye was overheard saying, “What you’re trying to do is get me in trouble … so I’m going to have to pay you like $250,000.”
Allred said the suit was being filed since the rapper has not apologized yet to Ramos after punching him in an unprovoked attack without warning.
Ramos, in an interview said, “All I had done was ask him a question. I was terrified when Kanye started to come at me.” He added, “I told him twice, ‘I don’t want to fight you. However, he attacked me anyway.” Ramos, who managed to hang onto his camera but fell to his knees, claimed that he is still in pain and has to use a cane in order to walk. According to a hospital record, Ramos suffered from a contusion and muscle pain.
The claim was countered by West’s lawyer, saying that he was just trying to call the attention of the paparazzi to stop taking a photo of him.
