Kanye West a suspect after reportedly punching a fan
West has not been arrested at this time, but Fox 11 LA reported that the rapper punched a fan who had asked for his autograph.
The incident is said to have occurred around 3 a.m. outside Soho Warehouse, an exclusive club in LA.
A video is also circulating via TMZ that shows Kanye angrily shouting at a man in a parking lot. No physical contact between the two is visible in the clip.
West and his new girlfriend Julia Fox were also out earlier that night at Delilah, another restaurant in LA. In videos, they were seen partying with Madonna and other stars.
Kanye apparently left Delilah in the early hours of Thursday morning, which could line up with him being at Soho Warehouse shortly after.
But nothing beyond Kanye being a suspect has been confirmed at this time.
