No, this isn’t clickbait – Kanye West is under investigation for criminal battery after allegedly punching a fan.
The fan reportedly told police that he approached West, who was in his car, seeking an autograph.
Allegedly, the two exchanged words, West exited his vehicle, and “then punched [the fan], knocking him to the ground.”
West had left the scene by the time police officers arrived.
Earlier in the night West had posed for photos while out on the town with his new girlfriend, actress Julia Fox, and some famous friends including Floyd Mayweather and Madonna.
West was announced earlier this week as a headliner for the 2022 edition of Coachella, alongside Billie Eilish and Harry Styles for what is sure to be the most Tik-Tokable edition of the festival yet.
Check out some live footage of West tearing it up at his 2011 appearance at the festival (minus assaulting fans) below.
