Kanye WestA photographer has brought a new lawsuit against Kanye West after reportedly sustaining injuries from a scuffle with the rapper's security team almost three years ago.

Michael Vasquez claims that the assault took place during a May 2008 party in New York. West was on hand to perform at the event, during which Vasquez claims that "his agents, servants and/or employees acting in the course and within the scope of their employment, detained and/or threatened and/or caused plaintiff to suffer injuries."

Vasquez, 44, went on to say, "The assault and battery was committed by the defendant, West, [his] agents, servants and/or employees, with malice" and caused him "physical, mental and emotional illness."
