Kanye West Has Settled The Civil Lawsuit Over His Airport Photographer Brawl

The pair were photographed shaking hands

Nearly two years after fighting with a photographer at a Los Angeles airport, Kanye West has finally put all the legal troubles associated with the incident behind him. Last year, he pled not guilty to criminal charges in the incident, but was nevertheless sentenced to two years of probation. Today, according to TMZ reports, cooler heads have prevailed in the civil case that the photographer, Donald Ramos, brought against him.

The terms of the lawsuit's settlement haven't been fully disclosed, but Ramos and Ye have been photographed together, smiling and shaking hands. According to TMZ, Ramos' lawyer Gloria Allred said that "this case sent an important message. Celebrities are not above the law, and they have no right to physically attack someone simply because they were asked a question."
