Kanye West's criminal record expunged

KANYE West's conviction for attacking a photographer has been erased from his record.

The 'All Day' rapper submitted a no contest plea to misdemeanour battery in 2014 over an incident at LAX airport the year before and was placed on 24 months probation and ordered to perform 250 hours of community service.

After completing more than the required number of hours at Los Angeles Trade Tech's fashion school and staying out of trouble for two years, Kanye filed legal papers asking the judge to wipe his record and his request has now been granted, according to TMZ.

Meanwhile, it was recently claimed that Kanye - who has daughter North, two and son Saint, five months with wife Kim Kardashian West - wants to manage Cruz Beckham.

The 'All Day' rapper has been impressed by videos posted on social media by Victoria and David Beckham of their talented youngest son's singing and told the retired soccer star he has what it takes to guide the 11 year old to stardom when they met up at an LA Lakers game in Los Angeles last month.

A source said: "After David and Kanye met up at the match, Kanye said he'd love to manage Cruz. He thinks he's a real talent and has the family connections to be a huge star."
