LOS ANGELES, July 13 (UPI) --
U.S. rapper Kanye West
is aggressive toward paparazzi because he feels as though they've been heckling him, a source close to the musician told TMZ.
The source said West feels the photographers have asked him inappropriate questions about his personal life ever since he began dating reality star Kim Kardashian in 2012.
In one instance, a paparazzo asked West and Kardashian if they planned to invite Kris Humphries and Reggie Bush -- Kardashian's exes -- to their wedding.
A few months later, when Kardashian became pregnant, another photographer asked if they would invite Ray J -- with whom Kardashian stars in a sex tape -- to the baby shower.
The source said that since these instances, West has instituted a "don't ever talk" policy for anyone with a camera.
