Ye has again made it to the headlines, but not for anything flattering. As per reports, the singer has been named as a suspect in a battery report investigation by Los Angeles police on Thursday.

Incident occurred at 3:00am in front of Soho Warehouse club
The police are looking into a misdemeanor battery case that happened in front of a posh club late into the night. As per Variety, Los Angeles Police Department's (LAPD) Newton Division has filed the report. The incident occurred near club Soho Warehouse at South Santa Fe Avenue and Bay Street in downtown LA at around 3:00 am, as per LAPD spokesperson Redina Puentes.
Apparently 'Donda' artist punched fan who asked for autograph
News portal Fox 11 was the first to report the incident, claiming the Donda artist had punched a male fan who had asked him for an autograph. Later, TMZ shared a video clip where Ye can be seen angrily talking with a few people. Shot seemingly from a hidden spot by undisclosed individuals, we can't be sure of the location/time/credibility of the clip.
Earlier, he was spotted partying with rumored girlfriend Julia Fox
While it is not clear whether the 44-year-old artist was inside Soho Warehouse prior to the incident, it is likely. Reportedly, earlier in that evening, the I Know God Breathed On This crooner was seen partying at Delilah nightclub in West Hollywood with rumored girlfriend-actress Julia Fox. Once the highly publicized couple parted ways, Fox stayed in the club while Ye went away.
