Kanye admits he beat autograph seekers in West Hollywood

Kanye West admitted that earlier this week he knocked out an autograph seeker who allegedly egged him off at a West Hollywood club earlier in the week when the rapper was investigated for violence.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, West, 44, said he was outside the Soho Warehouse at 6 p.m. 3 a.m. Thursday when a man who had been following him for autographs in recent days allegedly provoked him.

‘I say,’ ‘You do not know what I’m dealing with right now,’ ‘West said, referring to footage of him snapping at the unidentified man.

‘I just finished these two songs I came from the studio and this guy, he just had this right attitude, like’ ‘What are you going to do? And do you see that? ”

“I just have to tell you, the blue COVID mask does not stop that knockout, you know what I’m saying?”

He added that at the time, he was upset with the estranged wife Kim Kardashian, who was filing for divorce and now dating Pete Davidson, and with a cousin who failed to tell Kardashian that he would visit one of their children at school. .

‘Security does not come in between me and my children. And my kids will not be on TikTok without my permission, “Kanye said as he repeated his message to Kardashian.

He also mentioned that he was sad about her budding romance with Davidson.

‘How are you going to blame me for performing and kissing the guy you’re dating right in front of me. Everyone says, ‘it’s cool,’ and I hear the new boyfriend is in the house that I can not even go to. ‘

West claims the man he beat was not a fan of his, but one who tried to make money by selling autographs he got from the rapper on January 10th.

‘This is the same as the paparazzi, it’s not a fan. It’s someone using your image who has probably never listened to your songs. ‘

Dramatic footage of the aftermath of the incident shows West screaming, “Get away from me,” to his cousin, who tried to reassure him while the autograph finder lay on the floor, clenching his head in pain.

Witnesses told TMZ that West hit the man twice in the head and once in the neck, knocked him down and caused the fan to hit his head on the sidewalk.

One could hear his cousin say to the rapper, ‘I am your family’ as she tried to take his hand and make him relax.

‘No, walk away from me! There are no hands, no hands, ā€¯shouts West.

‘You should talk to her,’ he adds, now revealing that he was angry with his cousin for not telling his estranged wife that he wanted to visit their child at school.

In the end, he blamed his cousin for his bad mood that caused him to erupt in anger after the altercation, which was captured on video by confused spectators.

He said he eventually admitted the attack because he was tired of the media portraying the incident and wanted to take control of the narrative.

‘This is from the horse’s mouth. “I told you all before that you are not fit to be responsible for my story,” West told Entertainment Tonight’s Jason Lee.

‘I told you before, I’m taking my narrative. I write my story. Why don’t you all go and do something, you know what I mean, other than trying to get someone down. ‘

The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating the case and has not yet made any arrests, but has identified West as a suspect.

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

The group appeared to be in high spirits after Diana Ross’ son Evan Ross shared video footage of them on Instagram.

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

West is no stranger to running into the law. In 2014, he was arrested for assaulting a photographer at Lost Angeles International Airport.

He was sentenced to 250 hours of community service, two years probation and 24 anger treatments.

He was also arrested in 2008 for vandalism and violence over a quarrel with two photographers at the same airport. The case was dismissed after he paid for one of the photographer’s damaged equipment and agreed to participate in anger counseling.
