Kim Kardashian shut down a paparazzo who inquired about her ex-husband Kanye West’s alleged battery incident in front of her kids on Friday.
“Hey Kim, what do you think of Kanye hitting someone … [sic] the paparazzi’s phone?” the photographer can be heard asking in video obtained by Page Six.
“Do not talk to me about that in front of my kids,” the “Kardashians” star, 42, sternly responded, prompting the photographer to apologize to her.
During this exchange, a child can be heard shouting, “Please leave!”
Kardashian was attending her daughter North’s basketball game that night, and her son Saint was also present. It is unclear which child made the heartbreaking proclamation.
The protective mom of four then ensured her kids got in the silver SUV safely before she said goodbye to her sister Khloé Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson, who also attended the basketball game.
A few hours prior, TMZ reported that West, 45, was named the suspect of a battery investigation after he grabbed a woman’s phone out of her hand and threw it once she refused to stop filming him.
According to footage of the incident, the “Donda” rapper noticed he was being followed by someone who was recording him outside of his daughter North’s basketball game.
Ye then got out of his car and confronted the woman, while she recorded him with her dog on her lap.
“You didn’t have to run up on me like that,” West told the woman, as she held her cell phone in his face. “If I say stop, stop with your cameras!”
