Kanye West Says His Father Was A Paparazzo (Recap)

On Thursday Kanye West Says His Father Was A Paparazzo was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) In a twist of the irony. Anti-paparazzi soapbox preacher Kanye West has revealed in a deposition that his father was actually a member of the photo-taking class.

In a deposition for Kanye's physical confrontation with a paparazzi - for which he's currently doing community service - the rapper talked about how his dad Ray West used to snap people's pictures, according to a transcript obtained by The Daily Mail. "My father was a paparazzo himself," he told the prosecutor. "My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counselor."

Among Ray West's subjects: Ronald Reagan and Maya Angelou. Of course, that kind of portrait-taking seems far off from the swarming photogs that have become the wrath of West's Yeezus tour rants. But, in Ye's mind, not all paparazzi are bad.

In fact, Kanye even pals around with some photogs, who do favors for him like make sure his car doesn't get ticketed. Read what he had to say about that - here.
