The 45-year-old was on his way to watch his children, North and Saint, play basketball when he was hounded by paparazzi.

In one video, West is shown pleading with the paparazzi to stop following him. At first, her remains in his car, with his new wife, Bianca Censori, in the passenger seat.

"I wanna just see my kids," he says to the paparazzi. "Everybody gotta stop when I see my kids."

In another clip from the video, the Heartless rapper stands outside a woman's car and tells her to stop filming him with her cell phone.

The woman argues with him, saying, "But Kanye, you're a celebrity." Ye then snatches the phone out of her hand and tossed it into the street.

Kim Kardashian asked about confrontation

Per TMZ, West has been named a suspect in a battery investigation over the incident.

It's not clear whether the woman was a professional photographer or just a fan.

West's ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, also attended their children's game. A paparazzo asked the 42-year-old reality star about her ex's confrontation afterward.

"Do not talk to me about that," she replied.

Kardashian recently opened up about her choice not to speak out against her controversial ex in order to protect their four children.

"One day, my kids will thank me for sitting here and not bashing their dad when I could," she said.
