LOS ANGELES: Rapper Kanye West has reportedly been captured in a film while he was lashing out at a paparazzi, who complimented him for his work.
The video published by TMZ.com showed West talking to the cameraman in an angry tone, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I appreciate that, but don't talk. Don't talk to me. I don't want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know," said West.
"Don't talk to me at all and don't talk to anyone I know at all and tell everybody, never talk to anyone that anyone knows. Don't talk to themselves, don't talk ever again," he added.
West also reportedly tried to grab the photographer's camera after he asked him about his music career.
Five years ago, the 36-year-old musician was arrested for smashing up TMZ.com equipment.
West's socialite-partner Kim Kardashian gave birth to their first daughter last month. He previously said that he would do everything to protect the privacy of his daughter.
"I would do anything to protect my child or my child's mother. Well, I just don't want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn't America's baby," he had said.
