Kanye West reveals that he had just learned that his grandfather was fatally ill the day of the LAX paparazzi incident.
Kanye West's interaction with paparazzi at LAX last July has resulted in both charges and lawsuits for the Chicago rapper. Despite the sensationalism of the incident, judges have taken Yeezy's side, letting him off with an order to stay away from the photographer, and laughing off requests for anger management classes.
After a particularly impassioned appearance on Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week, Kanye spoke to paparazzi directly about his feelings towards them today, also addressing the source of his frustration the day of the LAX encounter.
"What I didn't get to say on Jimmy Kimmel is that's the day that I found out that my grandfather was not gonna make it." Kanye revealed. "He passed two weeks later."
The uncharacteristically composed Kanye went on to tell the paparazzi that he wants to coexist peacefully, addingÂ "we in this together."
