Police investigating Kanye West after battery complaint
LOS ANGELES – Police are investigating after a battery report was filed Thursday against Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West.
The incident that prompted the complaint took place in downtown Los Angeles around 3 a.m. Thursday, LAPD spokeswoman Redina Puentes said. No arrest warrants have been issued.
The street where the battery fire occurred is outside Soho West, a downtown members-only club popular with celebrities.
An email seeking comment from a representative for Ye, the 44-year-old rapper, producer and fashion designer, who legally changed her name last year, was not immediately returned.
He is in the midst of divorce proceedings from Kim Kardashian West, who demanded in December that she be declared legally single and drop his old last name.
