Will this stroke of good luck finally teach Kanye his lesson???

West has been completely cleared of the charges brought against him and his manager, Don Crawley, stemming from a September 2008 incident when Kanye and Don broke a paparazzo's camera outside of LAX.

West, who didn't feel it was necessary to show up to his court date, has been sentenced to a piddly 50 hours of community service.

Kanye's lawyer has told reporters that he believes his client was "wildly overcharged" and thinks the case should have been dismissed due to "justice, fairness and common sense."

    He's still an ass.

    Why are you telling us this now? We have already known this for days…….

    Wait, your story here makes no sense. He wasn't CLEARED of all charges. He was sentenced to 50 hours of community service. Not much, I admit. But he was not exactly "cleared" by any means. Cleared means charges dropped, or charges dismissed. What the heck, Perez, can nobody at your column write anymore? Seriously, it's beyond pathetic.

    LOL. Wow. I thought the world still hated him. Thats great.

    I comment on a website where my comments are public and can be googled so I haven't been really able to comment on Kanye like I want to. So here goes. Kayne is a ticking time bomb ready to implode into epic proportions worse than Britney Spears meltdown. I can say with almost certainty that he has a severe alcohol addiction problem and also mental problems. His pattern of behavior over the last few years and his interviews and his music have all progressively gone out of control. He is a narcisstic jerk who is not as talented as he thinks he is. His last album was complete trash! Lady Gaga should not have ever even thought about associating herself with such a pariah in the music industry. Good move by her to kick him off the tour! Kanye has lost millions in endorsement deals over the last few years due to his antics/crazy behavior and once again lost millions in revenue by Lady Gaga kicking him off the tour. As an artist the majority of your money is made from touring so not touring is tantamount to career suicide! Kanye should have been ordered by the judge to repay the paparazzi for damaging their thousands of dollars of cameras and equipment and ordered into rehab. Shame on the judge for not imposing a stiffer sentence on this jerk!

    Why doesn't he get charged with liquor other than residence?



  7. 7

    Again, you are at least 2 days behind tee em zee. How are we supposed to take you seriously when you are so behind with your stories that you just steal from other sites?

    "Will this stroke of good luck finally teach Kanye his lesson???"…. I doubt Kayne will learn how to NOT BE AN ASS, from this "lesson".



  12. 12

    lol, like you could do 50 hours of anything except bitch bitch bitch. boo hoo, not my camera! i'm a paparazzi stalker and i'll get in your way and piss you off on purpose for the sake of a picture, but don't touch me! i have every right to infringe on your privacy!

    By no means am I defending KW, but as usual Pumpkinhead has deliberately distorted the facts. A couple of excerpts from the AP article :
    "West, 32, was not required to and did not appear in court on Friday."
    "The photographers and the rapper have reached civil settlements over the case, …"
    "… California law allows for certain criminal cases to be settled out of court."
    "West and Crawley have already completed 12 hours of anger management classes, …"

    Um, if he was 'completely cleared' of all charges, then why is he doing 50 hours of community service? Also, this photo of him is perfect - shows what a low-class piece of garbage he is… right down to the bottle of Couvoissier. Could he be any trashier or more cliche?



  16. 16

    Re: divas1 – your joking right? his last cd wasnt garbage..was it the greatest no..but it was still pretty good. as for the tour..it wasnt selling..she didnt kick him off the tour..she doesnt have that kind of power…but there was a good reason it wasnt selling, they have 2 total different fan bases, 2 that really dont mix.
    but i do agree with you that he has some issues. i think losing him mom has brought them to the surface and i hope wether it be Amber or someone else close to him, that they help him out. he has talent, he just needs to get his private life in check.

    this is a reply to Divas1. i am so happy we have cretins who log onto all sites :P erezhilton to give psychtric advice. lol. besides, hate the but don't dare say he is not as talented as Lady makes me want to gag most of the times. I think Kayne will recover, go behind he scenes and then come back in five years. Besides he is already rich. And one of you are lawyers, just commentors. did you feel good when you saw your comment displayed?



  19. 19

    I love chocolate men.



  20. 20

    he is such a latent homo.I wonder how many of those rappers are gay w/beirds



  21. 21

    he wasn't cleard you dumb ass the judge said he would drop the charges if he completed anger managment (he has) and did 50 hours of comunity service. This means do the punishment and we wont put a conviction on your record that is FAR from being cleared. Cleared means not guilty and no punishment



  22. 22

    This guy should be caged..I'm not kidding.



  23. 23

    Drawing jiz on people's faces is ultra classy Perez. I'm glad you have such incredibly high standards.



  24. 24

    Looks like they snapped this right before he grabbed the family jewels.



  25. 25

    Lindsey Whore-han shows up to court an hour late, Kayne doesnt show up at all-WHATS WRONG WITH THESE 'CELEBS'.??? better yet, whats wrong with the courts allowing these divas to get away with it? are they star-struck,or what? let my ass show up to court late and see what happens. those narsacistic(sp?) assholes have no respect.



  26. 26

    although i'm not a fan of kanye whatsoever i think what he did to the paps is fine. they get in everyone's face, cause car accidents, and basically stalk celebs. so even though kanye is a huge douche he did the right thing. i think this is the only time i will ever say that tho lol
