In Summary

Rapper Kanye West is being investigated by the LAPD over an alleged incident where he allegedly punched a fan.  

The artist formerly known as Kanye West is being investigated for battery after he allegedly punched a fan seeking an autograph, TMZ reported.   

The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating an incident involving West—who legally changed his name to Ye—early Thursday morning.   

Video obtained by TMZ shows a man laid out on the street while an angry Kanye screams at someone who works for him, saying, “Get away from me!”

One of the bystanders reportedly told him it was OK and that everyone goes through issues with their family, that is when West allegedly attacked the person with two punches—one in the head and one in the neck, according to TMZ.   

West has gone through a very public separation from his wife Kim Kardashian, who filed for divorce from the Donda rapper last year.   

He has been public about his desire to get his wife back and keep his family intact. Despite those claims, West has been dating actress Julia Fox.   

Kardashian has been linked to Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson in recent weeks.
