The rapper has had more than a few confrontations with the shutterbugs-- with the most recent incident at LAX resulting in criminal battery and attempted grand theft charges being filed against him.
Yeezus is facing up to one year in jail if convicted on both charges, so now he's taking some precautionary measures to try to avoid the photogs an prevent another incident.
In fact, it seems Kanye is avoiding the paparazzi hotbed that is LAX at all costs--and those costs are high.
According to TMZ, Kanye and girlfriend Kim Kardashian are going to Paris this week, but they are taking a private jet to another airport, where they will then pick up a commercial flight.
Estimated cost of the detour? $5,000.
Still, it seems like it's a small price to pay for privacy, especially when the stakes are so high.
