Kanye West's Temper Gets Him Probation and Anger Management

The rapper pleads no contest to misdemeanor battery after a run-in with a photog last year.

Kanye West and Chris Brown have a lot more in common now than just selling hit records.

Kim Kardashian’s fist-friendly fiance has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery after a run-in with a paparazzo left the photog in the back of an ambulance.

But this doesn’t mean Yeezus is guilty.

The special plea means he maintains his innocence, but he still has to face the consequences for letting his temper get the best of him. So that means he’s been sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger management treatment sessions and 250 hours of community service.

Photographer Daniel Ramos has claimed the attack was unprovoked, alleging West punched him and damaged his camera outside Los Angeles International Airport in July 2013.

This isn't the first time the rapper has had to pay in court.

In January, he reportedly reached a settlement with the teen who allegedly made racist comments to West's reality star other half, and it cost him more than $250,000. West allegedly assaulted a young man who tried to help Kardashian flee the paps at a doctor's hospital in L.A. by holding the door open for her and yelling racial and homophobic slurs at the photogs. When Kardashian corrected him, he turned his sharp tongue on her... so when she fetched West, he allegedly let the teenager have it with his fists.
