Kanye West is under investigation for allegedly punching a fan near Soho Warehouse, an exclusive members-only club, in downtown Los Angeles.
According to sources, the incident occurred around 3 AM Thursday morning (January 13), while Ye was leaving the club.
The fan says he walked up to Ye’s car window and asked him for an autograph.
Words were exchanged, and Ye jumped out of his car and punched him, knocking him to the ground.
Ye left, the police were called, and the fan filed a police report.
Kanye West is now being investigated for battery, which is a misdemeanor charge.
The fan refused medical treatment, but he recorded the incident on his phone, which he showed to the police.
The police are using the recorded video footage as part of the investigation, and they are not releasing it.
Watch the Fox 11 Los Angeles news report below:
Earlier that night Kanye was seen at Delilah supper club, in LA, with his alleged girlfriend Julia Fox and a weird mix of celebrities, including Madonna, Antonio Brown, Floyd Mayweather, Evan Ross, & The Game.
Ye left Delilah solo, as Julia decided to stay behind.
Sometime after that, Ye presumably made his way to Soho Warehouse.
A video, from TMZ, shows Ye visibly upset, next to the vehicle seen at Soho Warehouse, yelling at some people with him.
Did y’all say that or not? Did y’all say that or not?… Did y’all say it or not?… Right f***ing now!
It’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out for Kanye West.
