Kanye West Is Giving Out Free Hugs to Paparazzi

Introducing 'Ye, the peacemaker.

Are the days of Kanye West fighting the paparazzi over? We're not sure, but what we do know is the rapper just wants peace while leaving the airport. This time, instead of being the one involved in a brawl with the paps, 'Ye was the one breaking it up.

According to TMZ, the MC was being bombarded by the paparazzi when two of them ended up getting into a physical brawl right in front of him. Instead of speeding up and leaving the scene, Kanye stepped in and parted the two photographers and even gave one of them a hug in an attempt to calm him down.

That's not all. After everyone chilled out, he even stuck around to answer some of their questions.

Has 'Ye turned over a new leaf? Perhaps. Meanwhile, take a look at one of his latest headline-making moments in the BET Breaks video, below:
