Kanye West has broken up ... a paparazzi fight.

The rap star, infamous for starting fights both on Twitter and in person, actually played the part of peacemaker on Friday shortly after landing at Los Angeles International Airport when he broke up a fight between two photographers who were competing to get a photo of him.

In a video obtained by TMZ, West is seen hugging one of the photographers in an attempt to smooth things over. West, who was charged with attacking a paparazzo in 2013, was able to de-escalate the situation enough to engage in a friendly conversation with one photographer and continue signing autographs.

Is this a turning point for a calmer Kanye West? Only time will tell.
