Rapper Kanye West has struck back at another paparazzo after being harassed at LAX airport in Los Angeles.

The confrontation took place as West was making his way through the airport and in a clip which has been posted on YouTube, he can been seen accusing the snapper of trying to provoke him, saying: "So I have to pay you, like, $250,000."

According to LA-based celebrity site TMZ, the paparazzo needed hospital treatment after the attack. West has previously squared up to one of TMZ's own snappers.

West and his partner Kim Kardashian recently had a daughter together whom they have named North West.

 West also recently released his new album Yeezus.
