New video of Kanye West in a fit of rage over his alleged battery incident has hit the internet.
The images, obtained by TMZ and released Thursday afternoon, show the billionaire rapper, 44, yelling at a female member of his team as an unidentified man lay on the floor.
The victim appears to be the fan, who Page Six earlier reported asked Ye for his autograph before he was allegedly punched by him.
The unknown man is seen in the clip wearing jeans and a black hoodie, and, although apparently still conscious, does not rise from the ground.
Meanwhile, West is heard yelling at the employee “Get away from me,” as she tries to calm him down and says, “Give me your hand.”
“No, get away from me!” ” he answers. “There are no hands, there are no hands.”
The unidentified woman then intervenes: “I am your family. Give me your hand.”
West then said, “You were supposed to talk to him!” It’s not clear from the footage who “she” is referring to.
The videographer appears shocked by the ordeal and can be heard asking in the clip, “Why did he do that?” “
West and his representatives did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Earlier Thursday, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to us that the music mogul was under investigation for suspected assault and battery.
We were told that West had an argument around 3 a.m. local time on Thursday when a fan asked for his autograph as he sat in his SUV outside the private Soho Warehouse club.
Fox 11 was the first to report the news.
In a separate video taken in a parking lot outside the club on Thursday, the “Heartless” rapper can be heard saying to two women, “Did you all say that or not? Did you all say it or not?
West has been open about his struggles with bipolar disorder. In July 2020, a source told People: “In the past, he suffered from both manic and depressive episodes related to his bipolar disorder. Right now he’s in trouble again.
Yeezy’s CEO is in the process of divorcing Kim Kardashian, with whom he shares four children. However, he’s been showing up in a good mood lately, frequently dating his new girlfriend Julia Fox.
In the hours leading up to the incident, West and Fox, 31, attended a star-studded gathering at Restaurant & Club Delilah on Wednesday night. Celebrities like Evan Ross, Madonna and Antonio Brown were also in attendance.
