Kanye West made headlines as he seized a photographer's phone following a probing question about his marriage to Bianca Censori.
The I Wonder rapper found himself in a verbal dispute that escalated physically in Los Angeles on Monday when confronted about the "free will" of the Yeezy architect in their relationship.
West, 46, was in the vicinity to show support for entertainer Charlie Wilson who was receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The inquiry directed at the photographer coincided with an exclusive revelation to DailyMail.com, stating that the Grammy-winning artist, has prohibited his 29-year-old wife from using social media as a protective measure against unfavorable comments.
During the daytime incident this Monday, the former spouse of Kim Kardashian was captured on video seizing a phone from a photographer who ventured into a line of questioning that agitated him.
“Hey Kanye, how you doing, its good to see you - people want to know, if Bianca has her free will? Some people are saying you are controlling her,” the photographer said.
In the video featured on TMZ, the camera visibly lost focus as West seized it and inquired of the photographer, “Don't come asking me that dumb-a** s***,” adding, “I'm a person, bro.”
Dressed entirely in black, including a complete face mask, Kanye West questioned the photographer's audacity for posing “some dumb-a** disrespectful questions about my wife.”
He expressed frustration, urging them to focus on more relevant matters like his access and parental rights concerning his four children with his ex-wife, Kardashian, rather than probing into personal aspects.
The Praise God singer stated, “You got questions for that, or are you part of the system?” adding, “Do you understand what I’m saying? Do you understand what I’m saying?”
He added, “Was it wrong for you to ask me about my wife, some dumba**, disrespectful sh*** like that, was that wrong or right?”
West pressed on with his line of questioning as the photographer asked for their phone back.
“Answer the question - I’m supposed to answer your questions - answer my questions,” he noted, ignoring any potential repercussions, he seized the photographer's phone from their grasp and adamantly refused to return it.
“I got your phone now: They’re gonna arrest me for taking your phone, arrest me for taking your phone then,” he continued.
West portrayed himself as a mature superhero and a legendary figure while persistently questioning the photographer about the disrespectful query. Despite the photographer's request for their phone, handlers attempted to guide West back to the original event.
During this interaction, West inquired about the photographer's name and address, proposing a job with doubled salary under his employ, before eventually returning the phone.
“Do you wanna work for me instead?” adding, “Oh, now you’re smiling ... get her contacts.”
