Kanye West Sued for Assault and Battery by Fan Who Wanted Autograph
The man added that he asked West for an apology, but the 24-time Grammy Award-winner replied, “Apology for what?” before striking him again repeatedly and “severely injuring him.”
West was allegedly told by a member of his entourage to stop hitting the man, but he instead yelled at them to “go to the fucking house and get my fucking kids.” The autographer dealer is suing for damages, accusing West of assault and battery, which the man claims caused him emotional suffering. The alleged victim refused medical care at the scene but later went to an urgent care, with LAPD also investigating the incident.
In addition, the man’s wife is also suing West for a loss of consortium, saying that he lost the companionship of her husband due to the 2022 altercation.
