Kanye West has settled the 2013 LAX paparazzi beating case with an apology, it has been reported.
According to TMZ, the rapper and the victim Daniel Ramos made up by shaking hands. Ramos’ lawyer Gloria Allred disclosed that Kanye apologized as part of the settlement, but did not say whether money played a role in the settlement.
As ENTmania! reported, West was charged with misdemeanor battery after putting his hands on Ramos and trying to seize his camera. He pled no contest and was placed on probation.
‘We believe that this case sent an important message. Celebrities are not above the law, and they have no right to physically attack someone simply because they were asked a question,’ said Allred.
