Kanye West is being investigated for criminal battery after being accused of punching a fan who asked for his autograph early Thursday morning.  

The 44-year-old rapper, who also goes by the name Ye, allegedly got into an argument with the fan around 3 a.m. outside the Soho Warehouse, a members-only club, in Downtown Los Angeles, FOX 11 reported. 

The fan approached West, who was sitting in his SUV outside the club, and asked for his autograph, which reportedly led to a heated exchange.

The argument then turned physical and West allegedly punched the fan, knocking him to the ground. 

West was not at the scene when authorities arrived, FOX 11 reported.

A video obtained by TMZ that was reportedly taken by a bystander around the same time of the incident, shows an apparent irate West. 

He is heard yelling, ‘Did y’all say that or not? Did y’all say that or not? Cause that’s what happened right f–king now.’ 

No arrests have been made and LAPD is investigating the case, a police spokesperson confirmed.  

West was out signing autographs on January 10, days before allegedly punching a fan.

Earlier in the evening, West had been with girlfriend Julia Fox at Delilah in West Hollywood for a star-studded dinner date after spending the evening with Madonna and Floyd Mayweather.  

While it was previously reported that West’s new romance has gotten under the skin of his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, sources claimed she is happy to see the Donda artist smiling again.

West, who is no stranger to controversy, has had his share of outbursts over the years. 

During the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, he stormed the stage during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video, an award he claims should have gone to Beyoncé. 

In 2018, West spoke out in support of former President Donald Trump. Wearing a Make America Great Again hat to the Oval Office, he gave a rambling speech to Trump and reporters, and stating that the Trump ‘is on his hero’s journey’ and told him he loved him.

He revealed in 2021 that he still supports Donald Trump as he lashed out at ' Cancel Culture' and the #MeToo Movement in a candid chat on Revolt TV's Drink Champs.

But in 2020, West announced that he no longer supported Trump as he launched his own presidential bid. 

‘I am taking the red hat off, with this interview,’ he told Forbes, although it was unclear whether Trump’s handling of the pandemic – which Kayne called ‘one big mess’ – may also have been a reason.

He also said it was wrong to assume that black people will always vote for Democrats. ‘To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy,’ he claimed.  

West has gone on a longwinded Twitter rants on everything from lashing out against the MeToo movement to abortion to calling COVID-19 vaccines ‘the mark of the beast.’

Kim initially filed for divorce in early 2021, but was seen by his side for months in support of his new album release.  

In a rambling interview with Revolt TV last November, which featured numerous digressions and left turns, he discussed the jokes Kim made about their split when she hosted Saturday Night Live last month.

In her opening monologue, Kim, 41, quipped: ‘when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality.’

Addressing the dig, West hit back: ‘SNL making my wife say “I divorced him” on TV because they just wanted to get that bar off… And I ain’t never even see the papers, we not even divorced.’ 

‘I want us to be together,’ West added before insisting that it was ‘the media’ didn’t want him and Kim to work out their differences. 

Since the interview, Kim and and Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson have gone public with their relationship, as have West and Julia Fox, who were out in West Hollywood just hours before the incident involving Kanye and the unidentified fan.     

The investigation into Thursday’s incident comes less than 24 hours after West was named one of the headlining acts for this year’s Coachella alongside Billie Eilish and Harry Styles. 

The rapper has not publicly commented on the incident.
