Kanye west is under the LAPD’s microscope for allegedly hitting a fan, but that doesn’t slow him down professionally – we’ve learned he’s coming out of LA and focusing on a new album and Coachella.
Sources with first-hand knowledge tell TMZ Ye that he is leaving town as soon as possible, heading for the SoCal Desert … where he intends to focus only on work. We’re told that he and his creative team already scheduled meetings weeks ago with the Coachella production to plan his directing, and he’s sticking to that plan.
Coachella won’t be the only project on Ye’s mind, however – “Donda 2” is well underway, and Kanye will be using the time outside of LA to meet with artists and producers to complete it.
Meanwhile, back in Los Angeles, we’re told the investigation is continuing into allegations that Kanye pushed, punched and knocked a fan seeking autographs to the ground. Our law enforcement sources say it’s still too early for cops to contact Kanye and his team, but it will happen in the near future.
TMZ broke history, Kanye was angry outside the Soho Warehouse early Thursday morning as his cousin tried to calm him down. A witness tells us Kanye busted out on the fan after asking not to be photographed and complaining that he was going through a lot with his divorce.
The cops took a battery report for misdemeanor, and witnesses say the alleged victim hit his head quite hard on the concrete. He left the scene on his own, but was examined in emergency care later Thursday.
As for Coachella, our production sources tell us Kanye plans to do some sort of Sunday service on both Coachella weekends, Easter falls on Festival Weekend 1, and we’re told there will be guests. specials involved outside of the Sunday service choir.
You performed Sunday service for over 50,000 people at Coachella 2019 – aka the pre-Covid days, and the last time the festival was held. It is considered one of the most unforgettable settings in the history of the event, so the bar is set quite high.
