Kanye West being investigated for assault


Kanye West has shown that he is not afraid to get in someone’s face, especially when they are messing around with Kim Kardashian. Apparently that happened in Beverly Hills on Monday. According to police, they were on the scene to respond for a call for misdemeanor battery.

“The named suspect was identified as Kanye West by the victim and several witnesses. Mr. West had left the location prior to Officers arrival,” The Beverly Hills Police Department said in a statement. “As of this writing, BHPD Detectives are conducting a follow-up investigation. No further information at this time.”

According to TMZ, a man threatened Kardashian by saying, “I will kill you, sl–” and she called West shortly after.

That is when he showed up and allegedly punched the man before leaving the scene.

While West could be facing misdemeanor battery charges if the claims from the man he allegedly punched prove to be true, Kardashian is also expected to press charges for the man’s threat.
