UPDATE | 12 September – Kanye Gets Out on Bail, Heads to Hawaii
After yesterday’s arrest at Los Angeles airport, LAX, both Kanye West and his road manager, Don C, have been released on $20,000 bail and are currently in Hawaii.
According to the Associated Press, West left an LA police station prior to being booked where he was escorted by an assortment of umbrellas to help prevent gathering photographers snap shots of the rap star.
Leaving in an all-black Chevrolet Suburban truck with a license plate that read “DIVA,” both men were immediately escorted by police to a private jet flight traveling to Hawaii. Although West resisted giving reporters an official statement, he did inform fans of his current situation via the renowned blog.
“We back in the lab,” he wrote. “I’m cool with the paparazzi. “This guy wasn’t cool. I gotta work now… I’ll rant later!”
