He continued, “Look, Dad, I love the paparazzi. I like the media, I like the media, everything. But they send two, maybe as agents or something to fix the problem.”
“This is similar to the paparazzi, this is not a fan,” Ye said of the man seeking autograph. “This is the person who is using your image, who may have never heard your music, and who are like, ‘This is my song, right?’
The incident happened the day before Ye released a new song, “Easy,” which takes its ex Kim Kardashian with their children and with violent songs Pete Davidson, With whom the true star has been in a relationship since the fall.
TMZ posted a video of what appears to have happened after an alleged altercation, showing a man lying on the side of the road while Ye screamed and argued with an unidentified woman to calm him down. He told her, “I am your family.” TMZ identified the woman as her cousin.
