*It’s official. The photographer who accused Kanye West of assault has filed a lawsuit against the wrapper, claiming their altercation at LAX left him on crutches.
Daniel Ramos appeared with his lawyer Gloria Allred at a news conference Wednesday, where Gloria announced the lawsuit for assault, battery, and interference with Daniel’s civil rights (in this case free speech), reports TMZ.
Daniel — who called himself a “filmmaker” — says he spent two weeks on crutches after the attack, and has been walking with a cane for some time. He says he’s still in pain.
Gloria argued the attack sets a dangerous precedent for celebrity-on-photog violence, and cited encouragement of the practice by such fellow celebs as Kirstie Alley, Cher and Kylie Jenner via Twitter as fanning the flames.
Allred says she is also asking the court to issue a restraining order against Kanye.
Ramos is suing for unspecified damages.
