Kanye West is under investigation after a confrontation with the woman who filmed him.
A spokesperson for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Eh! News on Friday, January 27, that the rapper, 45, is being investigated for battery charges. On Friday, they got a call about an argument between the “Power” artist and the woman who was filming him. A video was provided to authorities that shows West involved in an argument with a woman and appears to have grabbed the phone from her hand.
West left the area before police arrived. A criminal complaint has been filed, which will lead to further investigation, the spokesman explained.
In the video of the incident he came up with TMJ, the Yeezy founder was seen approaching the woman in her car while they were at a traffic light. He got out of the car to talk to her.
“You’re not going to run into me like that,” West said.
The woman, who had a small dog on her lap, replied, “I wasn’t running.”
She kept her phone on, took a close-up shot of West as he demanded, “Stop the cameras.”
The woman said, “I know, but Kanye you’re a celebrity.” Before she could finish her sentence, West grabbed the phone from her hands and threw it on the road.
The incident happened in Thousand Oaks, California, near the facility where Kanye’s eldest daughter North (9) was supposed to play a basketball game. kim kardashian attended with son Saint, age 6, as well as Tristan Thompson.
TMZ reports that West is back in his SUV, where his “wife” is. Bianca Censoriwaited.
The artist and designer Yeezy held what appeared to be a wedding ceremony in early January, a source exclusively told Us Weekly. “Kanye and Bianca had a little wedding ceremony, friends don’t know if it’s legal, but it’s very real to them,” an insider said earlier this month.
He shares North, Saint, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 3, with Kardashian, 42. The Skims founder filed for divorce in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage. A judge declared them single in March 2022 before their split was finalized the following December.
A collaboration with West — amid his tirades against Kardashian’s ex, Pete Davidsonand his anti-Semitic stories — it was difficult for the reality star.
“I definitely protected him, and I will continue to protect him in the eyes of my children. For my children. So in my home, my kids don’t know anything that’s going on [in] the outside world,” Kardashian explained during a December episode of the “Angie Martinez IRL” podcast.
“I’m holding on by a thread. I know I’m so close to it not happening, but while it’s still like that, I’ll protect it to the ends of the Earth as long as I can. My children don’t know anything,” she continued. “So at school, some of my best friends are teachers, so I know what’s going on at recess and lunch. I hear what they’re talking about.”
The reality star recalled the attempts she continues to make to protect their four children from West’s controversial social media comment.
“I’m holding on by a thread. I know I’m so close to it not happening, but while it’s still like that, I’ll protect it to the ends of the Earth as long as I can. My kids don’t know anything,” Kardashian explained. “So at school, some of my best friends are teachers, so I know what’s going on at recess and lunch. I hear what they’re talking about.”
Kardashian added: “Parenting is really freaking hard. I had the best dad and the best experiences, and that’s all I want for my kids… If they don’t know what’s going on, why would I ever bring that energy to them? It’s a real, hard, grown-up thing that they’re not ready to deal with. When they are, we will have those conversations. One day my kids will thank me for not sitting her and beating their dad. I could.”
