On Wednesday, August 21, Gloria Allred announced she had been hired by the photographer Kanye West attacked at LAX (Los Angeles International airport) this past July. Allred is planning on filing a lawsuit against West on behalf of her client for injuries received during the attack.
In July, as West was leaving LAX with a bodyguard he allegedly shoved the paparazzo to the ground and began screaming at him for taking pictures. The paparazzo is accusing West of causing injuries that required paramedics to respond to the scene.
The photo agency claims that Kanye West “shoved the photog to the ground and yelled at him after trying to take a few snaps. Kanye came out of the terminal and attacked the videographer by allegedly grabbing his shoulders and punched him. The paramedics were called to the scene and the victim was rushed to the hospital.”
Allred along with her client held a news conference at her office yesterday in Los Angeles. As planned, she said that the lawsuit that she will “condemn the support that some celebrities have given Kanye West for his attack on “paparazzi.”
