Kanye West seemingly indulged in a new controversary. The rapper has reportedly been named a suspect in a battery investigation after the rapper allegedly snatched a cellphone belonging to a woman and threw it, as reported by TMZ.
A video from the incident is also swirling around the internet. In the video, West was en route to his daughter North and son Saint’s basketball game in LA when the alleged incident occurred. The rapper is seen exiting his black Mercedes-Benz to allegedly confront the female in her vehicle. However, Kanye seemingly suspected that he was being followed by paparazzi.
Meanwhile, his new ‘wife’ Bianca Censori was seen in the passenger’s seat of his car and did not follow the Grammy Award-winner. In the video, the woman, who reportedly has not been identified as either a fan or photographer, filmed the hitmaker from the driver’s seat as he said, ‘You didn’t have to run up on me like that.’ The rapper added, ‘If I say stop, stop with your cameras!’ as the woman suggested she was within her rights to film him because he is a ‘celebrity.’
However, it seems like the response triggered Kanye to allegedly grab the woman’s cell phone from her hand before tossing it into the air. Meanwhile, it’s unclear as to what led to the confrontation. However, the outlet reported that Kanye accused the woman of ‘following him’ and has since been named a suspect in a battery investigation.
According to the recent reports, Ventura County Sheriff’s Department deputies were called and responded to the incident ‘around 4:30 PM and were provided video evidence of the incident.’ Meanwhile, West’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian was also present at Friday night’s game as she arrived with sister Khloe Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson. Kanye’s alleged altercation was said to have taken place near the sports facility.
