Just when you think Kanye West couldn’t get any more conceited, he tops himself yet again.
This time, the rapper struck with claims of being “the smartest celebrity you’ve ever f—ing dealt with.”
According to TMZ, West’s declaration was made during a deposition hearing in a civil suit filed by Daniel Ramos, a paparazzi photographer the entertainer is accused of assaulting in July 2013.
During that time, West was seen taking Ramos’ camera equipment away from him as well as lunging at him, the report noted. Ramos’ lawyer claims his client sustained injuries that included one to his hip.
Initially, West pleaded not guilty but later changed the plea from no contest to misdemeanor batter. As a result, Ramos’ civil suit was filed.
In addition to naming himself the “smartest celebrity,” TMZ reports that West revealed that his father worked in the same profession as Ramos.
“My father was a paparazzo himself,” the beatmaker told Ramos’ lawyer while adding that he wasn’t raised to “be out here wrestling with random paparazzi in front of LAX.”
Despite his seemingly cool and collected demeanor at the deposition, West did have one of his moments as he accused Ramos of asking him “dumb s—.” From there, he listed all the odd jobs his father did in addition to being a celebrity photographer.
