The cops are investigating Kanye west for allegedly punching an autograph seeker, and TMZ obtained this video of the man lying in the street as Kanye rages against people who apparently work for him.
As we reported, the alleged attack happened around 3 a.m. at DTLA, outside the SoHo warehouse – and Ye was absolutely livid. When the video begins, he yells “get away from me” at a woman who is desperately trying to calm him down. She also said, “I am your family”, but he continued to run away in anger. We are told that the woman is Ye’s cousin.
Witnesses tell us it happened just seconds after Kanye allegedly hit the guy twice – one on the head and one on the neck – and when the autograph seeker fell his head hit the ground hard.
We were told that Kanye asked the small group of people outside the building not to take pictures and said something about them not understanding what he is going through at the moment. When someone replies it’s okay, we all go through family stuff … that’s when Ye allegedly discharged the 2 punches.
We’re told Kanye headed downtown after a nighttime session at a Hollywood recording studio – and a separate video shows he was already pissed off when he left around 2:30 a.m.
You were yelling at 2 women about something… it’s hard to tell but it looks like they were the same women who were with him downtown when the alleged attack took place.
The alleged victim refused medical treatment at the scene, but we are told he is now being examined in an emergency care center – and as we have reported, LAPD investigation Kanye for the drums.
