Kanye West gets two years probation and anger management classes in assault case

Rapper Kanye West has been sentenced to two years probation after pleading no contest in his assault case.

Kim Kardashian's fiancé must also complete 24 anger management sessions and complete 250 hours of community service for assaulting a photographer in Los Angeles last July.



Kanye made a plea deal for the misdemeanor battery and will not be prosecuted. He maintains his innocence.

The photographer involved in the incident, Daniel Ramos, alleges 36-year-old Kanye struck him and grabbed his camera in an unprovoked attack.

He alleges he still takes medication for injuries from the attack and plans to launch a civil case against the Yeezus singer.


The singer must complete 24 anger management sessions and 250 hours of community service.

"I was doing my job and he broke the law," Mr Ramos told US media. "If I did what he did to me, I'd be behind bars."

Kanye was not at court for the hearing, during which his legal team were told he must pay for damage to the snapper's camera and settle any medical bills incurred after Mr Ramos called an ambulance.

The artist has currently busy putting the final touches to his wedding plans after setting a date for his nuptials with Kim.

The bride-to-be recently spoke to Ryan Seacrest about the ceremony - which will go ahead on 24 May - revealing it would be "super, super small".

She said: "As we go along, we're realising we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking."
