Kanye West named suspect in Battery Report

Kanye West is a suspect in an LAPD battery report taken early Thursday, Rolling stone confirmed.

The incident happened at 3 a.m. in downtown Los Angeles near the SoHo Warehouse members-only club. No arrests have been made and the LAPD is currently investigating the matter, an LAPD media relations officer said. While TMZ reports the case is being investigated as a misdemeanor battery, the LAPD media relations officer said police are not confirming the type of battery.

LA Fox Affiliate Fox 11, which first reported the news, reported that West allegedly punched a fan who asked for an autograph.

Representatives for West did not immediately respond to request for comment. The news comes just after West was announced to headline April’s Coachella festival alongside Billie Eilish and Harry Styles on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, West’s affiliates disagreed over the rapper’s potential plans to expand his business in Russia. Ameer Sudan, a friend of West, said Billboard the rapper was planning a trip to Moscow to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, but West’s public relations representative Pierre Rougier said Rolling stone these claims were entirely false.
