Kanye West recently appeared in a new video, confronting a paparazzi who persisted to photograph Ye and his rumored wife despite the rapper's multiple requests to stop.
Ye reappeared on Monday (Jan. 23), and was taken on film by a paparazzi when Ye and Censori attempted to get into their car after exiting a tanning clinic in West Hollywood, Calif. In the video, Ye grows agitated after learning he is being videotaped.
"Stop. Just stop, bro," Kanye West warns. "It's antagonistic. You got the shot. It's like, you don't even know. You just jump up on people like this."
"Do you know the first time I took medication, where I was?" Kanye continues. "’Cause I got mad a paparazzi. Do you know what paparazzi was? The same ones that shot Brittney. My dad did photography for newspapers. It has to be some kind of balance, some kind of conversation. I can't live in California and my life like I'm some kind of caged animal."
The photographer says sorry sincerely, but Kanye isn't done expressing his mind.
"The media doesn't have a right to just, boom, pop up," he adds. "We ain't have no idea. Then I have no say so in the shot. It's not just that. It's the entire media. Y'all find out where we are at. Y'all take this photo. What percentage of the money do we get off these photos?"

Once the photographer informs Kanye that it is not illegal in California for him to shoot Kanye in public, Ye replies by asking the man how he would feel if the rapper seized his camera, resulting in a heated confrontation in which the photographer is obviously shaken. "Let people know. Let all the paparazzi know. It's up," Kanye concludes before returning to his car.
Ye allegedly began the new year by marrying Bianca Censori in a secret ceremony in Utah, following a crazy fourth quarter of 2022. Kanye has otherwise remained out of the spotlight. So much so that his attorneys have apparently been unable to contact him.
