New Delhi: Kanye West, often known as “Ye,” is in legal jeopardy after reportedly attacking Nichol Lechmanik, a photographer, after she recorded the artist. Even though people are not very like of Kim Kardashian’s ex, they appear to be supporting him on this because the paparazzi occasionally go to great measures to capture celebrities on their mobile phones and cameras, which violates their privacy. The netizens have called this out as always.
The aforementioned incident occurred in January of this year as he was watching his daughter play basketball outside one of Ventura County’s sports schools. Kim reportedly attended the game and was photographed by the photographer as well. The paparazzo claims that Kanye grabbed the phone and threw it away.

According to Variety, the paparazzi Nichol filed a complaint against Ye, alleging that she was in “great mental and emotional pain.” She said in a press conference, “He reached into my car as if he were going to hit me; he grabbed my phone out of my hand and then angrily threw it into the street. He caused so much fear that I have not been the same since.” The paparazzo even called 911 and filed a complaint against him. The lawsuit filed by Nichol against Ye states, “Given Defendant Ye’s reputation for violence against photographers, his history of physically harming them, and based on his threatening body language, Plaintiff became fearful for the photographer’s safety. She did not want to get out of her car because she was afraid of Defendant Ye.”
