Rapper Kanye West has been ordered to keep his distance from a photographer he is accused of assaulting during a run-in outside Los Angeles International Airport in July.

The “Stronger” hitmaker was slapped with battery and attempted grand theft charges after he allegedly tried to grab paparazzo Daniel Ramos’ camera and wrestle him to the ground this summer.

West insists he acted in self-defense, and, during a court hearing on Monday, a California judge ruled that both parties must stay at least 10 yards away from one another.

West’s lawyer, Blair Berk, also successfully demanded access to all information prosecutors have gathered for the criminal battery case, while there was another small victory for the hip-hop star when the judge rejected authorities’ request to have the musician undergo anger management classes in order to remain free on bail, reports TMZ.com.

The rapper faces up to a year behind bars if convicted of the charges.
