American rapper and business mogul Kanye West found himself in yet another legal battle as an autograph seeker sued him for assault and battery.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, the incident occurred two years ago in DTLA where video from just after the alleged attack showed the man (autograph seeker) on the ground.
According to him, Kanye West who is now known by the name Ye went ballistic on him, allegedly shouting … “I’m going to make a f***ing example of you,” while referencing his divorce from Kim Kardashian — before hitting him.
He added that he requested an apology from the rapper, but instead he rather replied with “Apology for what?” before allegedly striking him again multiple times and “severely injuring him.”
He claims one of the people with Kanye told him to stop the attack, but Ye started shouting at them, and demanded they ‘go to the f***ing house and get my f***ing kids.’
Autograph Seeker Sues Kanye West: according to the legal document, he is suing Ye for damages, claiming he’s a victim of assault and battery and has suffered emotional distress.
As if that was just it, but instead, his wife also went ahead and sued Ye for a loss of consortium — essentially saying she lost the companionship of her husband as a result of the incident with Ye.
As we reported, a separate vid from that night showed Kanye enraged leaving a recording studio in Hollywood, shouting about 2 women who may have been with him during the downtown incident. Our sources told us the man ended up getting checked out at an urgent care after the alleged beatdown and that LAPD was investigating.
