Kim Kardashian's baby daddy filed a response to the lawsuit by photographer, Daniel Ramos, stating, "Daniel Ramos is not entitled to relief on any of the claims set forth in the complaint because at the time and place mentioned in the complaint, Daniel Ramos willfully and wrongfully caused Kanye West to reasonably believe his safety was in immediate danger.
"Kanye West responded to this assault by doing only those acts that were reasonably necessary for his self-defense and safety and was justified in doing those acts."
West “shoved the photog to the ground and yelled at him after trying to take a few snaps,” a photo agency at the scene claimed.
“Kanye came out of the terminal and attacked the videographer by allegedly grabbing his shoulders and punched him. The paramedics were called to the scene and the victim was rushed to the hospital.”
It was just one incident in a string of heated encounters with paps in recent months.
In May, West went on a verbal rampage against one photographer after he cracked his head on a street sign.
West faces a maximum of one year in jail and will be arraigned on Oct. 10, and is represented by Blair Berk in the criminal matter.
The formal response seeks to have costs awarded to West, and none awarded to Ramos.
