A video posted this afternoon at TMZ.com shows music star Kanye West leaving the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX and going after a paparazzo who was peppering him with questions on the sidewalk. It looks real, although there's some history. West appears to say something about the celebrity hounder trying to goad him into violence and a lawsuit — and then he falls for it and chases the pap around a car before seeming to physically assault the photog. TMZ reported last week that West had decreed that TMZ stalkers should never talk to him again — the website says the pap attacked today was not theirs.
TMZ says in a followup that the LAPD is investigating West as a felony suspect because he allegedly attempted to rob the pap of his camera. Paramedics were called to treat the downed paparazzo.
