The Los Angeles police are investigating the involvement of Ye West (40) in an assault. The American rapper is said to have hit a fan early on Thursday morning who asked him for an autograph.

The incident took place near the Soho Warehouse, a Los Angeles club , according to entertainment site TMZ . Sources tell the site that the rapper, who now calls himself Ye, got into a fight on the street with a male fan, whom he then punched. It is not clear what led to the scuffle. However, images have surfaced of a clearly angry Ye screaming in the street.

Earlier that evening, the rapper was with his new flame Julia Fox at a dinner where, among others, Madonna was also present. The group would later have attended a Drake performance.

Earlier, fans were already concerned about the psychological condition of Kim Kardashian’s ex.
