Kanye West under investigation for alleged battery

Raper and former presidential candidate Kanye West is currently under investigation by authorities in Los Angeles for an alleged altercation that resulted in a battery in Los Angeles. 

Fox News reported that a spokesperson from the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to Fox News Digital that west and another male were involved in some sort of interaction believed to have gotten violent.

The event took place around 3 a.m. local time on Thursday, according to the LAPD spokesperson. 

“Kanye West was exiting a local eatery and he became engaged with the victim, a male. The victim called the police. By the time police got there, Kanye West was gone,” an LAPD spokesperson told Fox News.

This investigation was prompted by a battery report filed by the alleged victim who named West as the suspect, and representatives for the rapper didn’t immediately return Fox News’ request for comment. 

“We are following up and investigating what the alleged battery was about,” the spokesperson for the police department continued.

West has been consistently in the news lately since his split with reality television superstar Kim Kardashian West, with whom he has four kids 

“The spokesperson did not have any other details to provide about the alleged battery. According to Fox 11, the incident allegedly took place at the Soho Warehouse. The alleged victim is a fan who asked for the rapper’s autograph, the outlet says,” Fox reported. 

Both Kardashian and West have had immense fame brought to their doorsteps both before and after they were romantically connected.
