The Word: Why Kanye West will debut baby North on Kris Jenner talk show

Celebrities At The Lakers Game

Kanye West will appear on his mother-in-law Kris Jenner’s talk show on Friday, where he’ll show the first public photo of his daughter North West. It’s a little out of character for grumpy, boundary-breaking Kanye to go such a traditional celebrity baby-revealing route. So why are he and Kim debuting Nori like this?

“He said he had decided he wanted to show the picture of North because they didn’t want to make money on the photo and he is fed up of paps following him around,” an audience member said.

Uh, I have some unfortunate news: Those photographers aren’t going away after one photo. Every single person in that family is very, very famous.

Kanye West’s ongoing tensions with paparazzi boiled over recently when the rapper came to blows with a photographer outside of the LAX airport, according to TMZ. It’s unclear what spurred the altercation, but sources say West went after the “especially aggressive” photographer and tried to take away his camera, pulling him to the ground. West was no longer on the scene when police arrived. The photographer was taken to a local hospital to undergo X-rays on his hip, which he claimed he injured in the fight.
