Kanye West Served With Legal Papers At LAX — What Was It For?

In case you didn’t know, Kanye West got served with legal papers last week. The rapper made a mad dash through LAX airport on Thursday as the process servers chased him down. Now, fans are wondering what Kanye got sued for.

TMZ was the first on the scene as West dashed through the airport. He rushed into an awaiting SUV as held North West snuggly in his arms. A man in a black suit rushed up to the rapper to serve him with legal papers. The man decided to throw the papers into the vehicle before Kim Kardashian steps into the car. After the door closes, someone throws the legal papers out of the car. Some are assuming that it was West who threw the papers out of the window.

It’s still unclear as to why Kanye was served or what the legal papers were for. The process server didn’t talk to TMZ about what the legal action was about, according to The Celebrity Café. Kanye tried his hardest to remain calm during the situation since he had North in his arms.

West and Kardashian flew back to Los Angeles on Thursday after touring Armenia, the Middle East, and most of Europe. It looks like their trip came to an awful ending. West had to come home to legal papers waiting for him.

It has fans wondering why the rapper was served. Some have taken to social media to exclaim their excitement over the news.

Meanwhile, other fans have been reading up on Kanye West’s new interview with Paper magazine. While he didn’t attempt to break the internet with his behind, he did grace the cover of magazine’s April 2015 issue in a gray sweatshirt. The profile shot of the rapper includes the headline, “Kanye West: The American Dream.”


Kanye talked about the Illuminati jokes surrounding the Tidal streaming service. The Inquisitr previously reported that the rapper told the magazine that the new music service is not part of the Illuminati. Kanye told the interviewer that he’s tired of hearing fans targeting artists as the Illuminati.

He also shared the following words of wisdom.

“I know people want to talk about the American Dream, but my dream is a world dream. It’s a world in which everyone’s main goal would be to help each other…. I think it’s so important for me, as an artist, to give Drake as much information as I can, A$AP, Kendrick, Taylor Swift, any of these younger artists as much information as I can to make better music in the future. We should all be trying to make something that’s better.”

West proudly shared his Paper magazine cover and interview with his Twitter followers on Monday night. He hasn’t yet responded to the allegations that he threw the legal papers out of the car window. What are your thoughts on Kanye West being served legal papers? Do you think it was right of him to throw the papers away?
