When affronted by an obtrusive paparazzo at LAX on Friday, rapper and Kim Kardashian's beau Kanye West decided to confront the snap-happy photog and try to swipe his camera.

Police were flagged down by the paparazzo in question, “who alleged that he was taking pictures of an individual when he was battered by the subject,” “Us Weekly” reports, citing an official statement from LAX police.

“LAFD was notified, responded to the location and transported the victim to a local hospital for medical attention,” the statement continues. “A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing."

Because the new parent and “I Am God” rapper tried to snatch the photographer’s camera, he has been named a felony suspect for attempted robbery, according to TMZ.

TMZ also managed to get their hands on a video clip of the altercation, which is just one of numerous showdowns between Kim Kardashian’s main man and the paparazzi.

Earlier this month, West made his feelings for overzealous photogs very clear, saying, "I don't want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anyone I know,” he said, according to “Us.”

For some reason, we doubt that the paparazzi will heed the 36-year-old rap star’s lament.
