Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were photographed leaving an L.A. medical building with their baby and nanny. It all seemed well and good, and even normal, if you're a Kardashian, until today, when Radar Online reported that Kanye was pissed about the pictures.

The gossip site claims that the rapper had no idea he was being photographed, and that he thinks it was someone in the Kardashian's very family that tipped the paparazzi off to the fact that they'd be leaving the doctor's office at that moment.

A source allegedly told the site that West went “absolutely ballistic that a paparrazzo took the pictures of the family outing to baby North’s appointment with her pediatrician. Kanye was absolutely unaware that the photographer was in the parking garage of the medical facility.”

This might be in part because Kanye is regularly getting caught at inopportune moments by renegade shutterbugs, such as the time that he walked directly into a sign and had to be tended to by a pregnant Kim. Or the time on Wednesday that he was boo-ed at a Dodgers game. For instance.

At any rate, West will be upset, says Radar, if it turns out that the photographers were called to the scene by the Kardashians, who have a history of letting paparazzi know where they'll be in advance of being there.

Even so, there still hasn't been any big reveal of North West's face, since she was covered up by a sheet in this week's pics. Kanye is reportedly trying to get her first photos in Vogue. No word yet on how Anna Wintour feels about all that.
