Kanye West, photographer, settle lawsuit over airport attack

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kanye West and a paparazzo he attacked have settled a lawsuit, at least in part with a handshake and an apology.

West was sued by Daniel Ramos after the 2013 attack outside a terminal at Los Angeles International Airport and the case was scheduled to go to trial next week. Ramos’ attorney Gloria Allred wrote in a statement issued Tuesday that the case had been settled and West had apologized to her client.

Allred sent a photo of West, smiling, as he shook Ramos’ hand.

West’s attorney Shawn Holley did not immediately return phone and email messages seeking comment.

Allred wrote that other details of the settlement will not be released.

The 37-year-old rapper pleaded no contest last year to misdemeanor battery and remains on probation.
