Kanye West: My Father Was a Paparazzo

Well, if this isn't the epitome of irony.

Kanye West, who is known to loathe the paparazzi, has just revealed that his own dad was actually a paparazzo back in the day.

"My father was a paparazzo himself," Yeezy explained during a deposition in a case being filed against him by a paparazzo. According to TMZ, Kanye went on to explain that his photog father didn't raise him to "be out here wrestling with random paparazzi in front of LAX."

Unfortunately, the deposition was for a case where he's accused of doing exactly that. Originally, Kanye was charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft and then the paparazzo himself sued 'Ye in civil court for assault and battery after their scuffle outside of LAX.

It's kind of strange to think of all of Kanye's past interactions with paparazzi and to know that his own father was, at one time, one of them.

Then again, Kanye is always cordial with paparazzi in France because they have better laws to protect celebrities there, so maybe he just feels that they've started crossing too many lines here in the United States? They have become really aggressive lately.

What do you guys think? Does this revelation change anything?
