How will momager Kris Kardashian manage this one?

Her son-in-law Lamar and potential son-in-law Kanye West are both in trouble with the law.

Kanye, who is the partner of Kim Kardashian, has been charged with battery and attempted grand theft for an alleged altercation with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport, a city official said on Friday.

The alleged altercation took place on July 19, Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said.

A video posted on celebrity news website TMZ of the incident shows the Grammy-winning rapper glaring at photographers as he leaves the airport. West confronts one of the photographers and appears to lunge at him.

Mateljan said that West, 36, also attempted to take equipment from the photographer.

Kim made her first formal appearance at the Givenchy show since giving birth to baby Nori.
Whatever Kim is saying, Kanye is finding it incredibly amusing.
In that infamous Met Gala dress, Kim showed off her growing baby bump as she escorted her boyfriend on the red carpet. Kanye later defended his other half's ensemble, saying he thought she looked fantastic.
For Halloween last year, Kim and Kanye wore complementary costumes - she as a mermaid (complete with beachy blonde wig) and he, as a sailor.
Watching the LA Lakers take on the Denver Nuggets, Kim and Kanye look both intimate and incredibly relaxed with each other. Despite initial suspicians that this was a fake relationship for the publicity hungry pair, it seems to be going the distance.
The couple were friends for years before getting together. Kim's ex-husband, Kris Humphries, claims that the fact that Kanye didn't attend their wedding is proof that the two were already having an affair.
The couple attended Paris Fashion Week in July and are rumoured to be collaborating on a shoe collection together.
The lovebirds often colour coordinate their outfits. Kanye is widely credited with giving his reality TV star girlfriend a fash-over - the acres of cleavage and skimpy little dresses have gone.
Although Jay-Z and Kanye are great friends, it's said that Jay-Z's wife Beyonce is not enamoured with Kim. She seems to have put her reserves aside here at the BET awards.
The couple attended the Cannes film festival this summer and seemed to have a fine old time hanging out on yachts and posing on the red carpet.
Whenever the celeb couple appear in public, Kanye appears to be very protective of his famous girlfriend.
The rapper is very supportive of his girlfriend's career, appearing on her reality TV show, 'Keeping up with the Kardashians'. Here he is accompanying her to the launch of her jewellery line, Belle Noel.
Kanye's latest song, 'Perfect B***h' is an ode to Kim. It must be true love.
Kim makes a super-quick appearance in Kanye's video, 'I Wish You Would/Cold'.
The couple that works out together, stays together.
Kim has been telling close friends that she wants a divorce from Kris Humphries, no so she can marry Kanye but because Kris is "a cancer" that she wants out of her life.
The couple appear here in a promo for the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) which take place in September. Let's hope Kanye behaves himself at this one, unlike in 2009 when he stormed the stage and ruined poor Taylor Swift's night.
At a New York restaurant launch, they look impossibly happy as they cling to each other's sides.

Kim's style evolved from tacky bandage dresses to chic Chanel nearly overnight when she began seeing Kanye.
The beaming pair first went public with their relationship last year with an afternoon ice cream date in New York City.

Each misdemeanor charge carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison.

West is scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles on October 10.

West has become a frequent target of paparazzi after striking up a romance last year with reality TV star Kim Kardashian. The couple welcomed their first child, a baby girl named North West, in June.

Meanwhile Lamar Odom, the basketball star husband of Khloe Kardashian, has been charged with one count of DUI (Driving under the influence).

Lamar was arrested by police in Los Angeles on August 30 after officers said he was driving too slow on a freeway.

He was arrested after failing a sobriety test and refused to submit to a blood test while in custody.

Law enforcement sources have told TMZ they believe Lamar was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.

He could be banned from driving for up to a year if found guilty.

He is due to be arraigned before court on September 27th.

Lamar and Khloe's four-year marriage has been rocked amid allegations that Lamar has drug addiction problems, particularly with crack cocaine. Sources close to the couple say Khloe has been doing all she can to help her husband but to to no avail.
