If this video that surfaced online today was real, Kanye would need to take a seat in anger management rehab next to Chris Brown! Fortunately, it’s not him.

Earlier today, a 30-second video of Kanye allegedly fighting the paparazzi in the streets of Austin, Texas was uploaded to YouTube and quickly made its rounds across the Internet.  In the insane footage that looks like something off of the homepage of World Star, a man who looks incredibly similar to Kanye is spotted slapping around two rumored photographers in the streets. It’s pretty bad! Like “Go straight to Jail, do not pass go..do not collect 200 dollars” bad.

Although,  the video is said to have taken place yesterday, there are a few things things that are dead giveaways as to why the man in the video is not Kanye:

1) Kanye is not in Austin. He was just in New York performing for Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday and there is photographic evidence of him arriving in Los Angeles yesterday.

2) Judging from recent photos, Kanye has been wearing the same pair of ripped stone washed jeans for the past few weeks, and the man in the video is wearing skinnies. Not to mention, in the still shots, it’s quite evident that the man’s body shape is different.

3) The men in question are supposed to be paparazzi but there is no camera equipment in sight.

Verdict: Kanye is the victim of an Internet prank!

P.S.  Kanye would be in a lot of trouble if this were real as he is already facing charges of criminal battery and attempted theft after wrestling with paparazzi at LAX earlier this year.

If you are curious, the fraud video is below:

Judging from how fast this video circulated on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (it had over 350,000 views in a matter of hours), it’s amazing to see how many people actually believed Kanye went all “Mortal Combat” on someone. The question now is, who in the heck is in this video and why aren’t they in cuffs?

    I don’t understand…if this is him why doesnt he just get bodyguards? You dont see this mess happening to bey and jay cause they have top notch security. Even if this isnt him (which it probably isnt) I’m tired of seeing kanye having beef with the paparazzi when its obviously avoidable.

Why would he do this in the middle of the road where a lot of people seeing this nonsense and not call the police? Nonsense. 4. Why would Kanye risk everything and he has child at home? People are reaching smh

  15. Didi says:

    Lol yea, once I didn’t see the ripped jeans, I kinda figured it wasn’t him. Plus if Miss Info isn’t reporting it, I’m not believing ish.

    With that being said, I don’t think Kanye would go that far as knock out not 1, but 2 people. Nahhh.. He might get heated but he’s not laying hands. And I’m not calling him a punk, but if his 2 favorite girls are not there, I doubt anyone’s gonna get that far under his skin that he’s gotta lay hands on them like that

  23. Hmm. says:

    Loool, these blogs have to mention CB’s name even in stories that has nothing to do with him… What was the purpose of mentioning his rehab… And no Kanye has not been wearing the same darn jeans for two weeks straight… I need to start going on unbiased blogs.

    If you look at the video closely you could see that the whole thing was staged. There are many parts where you can see the so-called aggressor hardly even laying blows on the men.
