Given Kanye West's long and tumultuous history with the paparazzi, we are very surprised by this news.
In a deposition for assaulting a photographer back in 2013, Kanye confessed:
"My father was a paparazzo himself. My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counselor."
Woah, did Kanye really say, paparazzo?! That's a CRAZY admission considering Kanye once likened the paparazzi to Nazis in his song Flashing Lights.
Kanye elaborated on his shocking admission:
"Sometimes I get in the car with the paparazzi. Paparazzi help me to park. The paparazzi watch my car and makes sure that cops don't give me tickets. There are some nice guys out here trying to just feed their family."
Hmm, that's a mature observation for Kanye to admit!
The rapper finally added:
"I'm not here to hurt people."
Given Kanye's openness about his father and his surprisingly leveled statements throughout the deposition, we're inclined to believe him!
We hope Yeezy continues to be more forthcoming in the future!
