Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is taking it easy on paparazzi overseas during Paris Fashion Week as footage has surfaced showing him comparing them to the infamous aggressive ones in the United States.
Footage of Yeezy briefly interacting with a French photographer has started to make its rounds online.
“Don’t ask me no questions though,” Kanye said as he stepped out of a vehicle. “Don’t ask questions, just take the video. Don’t do like the LA, like, I like how you guys move out here. You guys have total respect for yourselves. I respec that you’re photographing and you also take time off like at 8 o’clock, you’re not a people’s houses. I just really appreciate and respect that. I understand that you have to make a living. So, [let me] shake your hand, I appreciate that.” (Storm Shadow Crew)
The footage comes in light of Ye expecting to take legal action against Los Angeles-based paps for trespassing onto his property last week.
Kanye West is trying to flip the script on the paparazzi and will press criminal charges on one of the two photographers who recently showed up at his Hollywood Hills pad at 4 A.M., reports TMZ. As recently reported, two photogs showed up at Yeezy’s crib in the wee hours on Friday (September 27) to litter him with questions about his beef with Jimmy Kimmel. They were promptly spazzed on by Ye. According to the report, West has security camera footage of one of the men trespassing on his private property and will take the extra step to try and get him prosecuted for criminal trespass.

Kanye and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian are currently in France for fashion festivities.
After his headline-making feud with Jimmy Kimmel, Kanye West escaped the madness and headed to Paris for Fashion Week on Saturday. Mr. West avoided LAX, the site of many of his paparazzi run-ins, and traveled to Paris via San Francisco on a commercial flight. Kim Kardashian left their daughter North back home with her family and joined him on the trip. The fashionable couple was greeted by photographers as they made their way through Paris. At one point, Kanye was seen smiling as he spoke with some of the locals. (Rap-Up)
Prior to landing overseas, Ye faced off with a photographer early Friday (September 27) in Los Angeles.
Kanye West strikes again. In a matter of 24 hours, the 36-year-old rapper has managed to verbally attack late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and flip out on another paparazzo. Still facing charges of battery and attempted grand theft in an airport altercation with a photographer over the summer, West lashed out at another shutterbug around 4 a.m. Friday. According to TMZ, unwanted photos of the “Black Skinhead” singer were being snapped outside his former bachelor pad when his short fuse began to rear its ugly head. (New York Daily News)
West was pushed to the edge when asked about his publicized feud with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.
In a video obtained by the gossip site from X17 Online, photographers set off West when they started heckling him about his Twitter feud with Kimmel hours before. “Good morning, Kanye,” a photographer said. West immediately fired back, “Shut the f–k up.” “Are you mad at Jim Kimmel? Do you think he was too much with you?” the photog continued about his social media rant. “How’s it going?” “Don’t’ say anything to me,” West angrily replied. “You are outside my house at 4 a.m. telling me, ‘How’s it going?’ It’s not going good. … Y’all here to make money off of us. That’s how it’s going.” (New York Daily News)
