Kanye West Under Investigation For Alleged Battery, Fan Claims Ye Punched Him + DONDA Is Now Certified Platinum


Kanye West is under investigation after a fan made claims Ye punched him and pushed him to the ground. There’s video of an irate Ye yelling at someone - seemingly after the alleged attack. Now, the LAPD is investigating.


Deets on the alleged attack, plus the latest music updates on his DONDA album inside…

The Los Angeles Police Department have launched a criminal investigation against Kanye “Ye” West after he allegedly PUNCHED a fan early Thursday morning.

The DONDA rapper (who legally changed his name to Ye) allegedly got into an argument with a fan around 3AM in downtown Los Angeles after the male fan requested an autograph. It’s reported the alleged physical attack happened near Soho Warehouse, which is a place for creative thinkers to meet, work, stay and relax.

It’s reported the Grammy winning rapper punched the male fan and pushed him down to the ground. The case is being investigated as misdemeanor battery, which carries a maximum jail sentence of 6 months.

There is video footage of Ye yelling and screaming at someone. It’s unclear who he’s arguing with in the clip.

”Did y'all say that or not? Did y'all say that or not?" "Cuz that's what happened right f****** now,” Ye shouted.

Peep the video below:

In another clip, the Jesus Is King rapper is seen arguing with his female cousin as the victim lays out on the ground: 

TMZ reports:

Witnesses tell us this was just seconds after Kanye allegedly punched the guy twice -- once in the head, and once in the neck -- and when the autograph seeker went down, his head struck the ground hard.

We're told Kanye had asked the small group of people outside the building not to take photos and said something about them not understanding what he's going through right now. When someone replied that it's okay, we all go through family stuff ... that's when Ye allegedly unloaded the 2 punches.

Ye was living it up at Delilah in WeHo with his girlfriend Julia Fox before the alleged attack. 

There’s a viral video of Ye and Julia vibing out with ex-Bucs player Antonio Brown, famed boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and singer Madonna. It’s unclear where they were, but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.


Hunger Games actor Evan Ross was also in the mix, sharing flicks and videos from the meet up:



Very weird, indeed.

In music news…

After being released in August 2021 (due to several delays), Kanye’s DONDA album (his 10th studio album) has surpassed 1 million sales, officially reaching platinum status.

Also, The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival released its lineup, making a return after a two-year hiatus. As we previously told you, Ye has been tapped to headline the two-weekend extravaganza in April:
