Kanye West may be busy planning his wedding to Kim Kardashian, which will take place in France later this year, but it appears that he has a couple of legal issues to settle before then. And it sounds like he has settled the case with a photographer, where he was accused of attacking him at the airport. And while he may be changing how he does things these days, he still has to address this issue. According to a new CP24 report published on March 17, Kanye West has pleaded no contest yesterday to the misdemeanour battery against a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport.

He pleaded no contest, but claims that he is innocent. “West entered the plea through his attorney and did not attend the court hearing. He was sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger management therapy sessions and 250 hours of community service,” reveals the report. There was no settlement for the photographer and his plea cannot be used against him, in case the photographer decides to file a civil suit.

West has also settled a lawsuit from a younger man, who claims that West beat him after attacking him in a medical office. The young man supposedly tried to call out Kim Kardashian and threatened her life. This was settled with a rather large amount of money. What do you think of his legal issues?
