Kanye West has avoided a charge that may have had negative consequences. After allegedly punching a fan outside an L.A. hotel, West won’t be charged. “
After a comprehensive and meticulous assessment of all the evidence, our office is declining to file based on no reasonable prospect of conviction,” the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office informed TMZ. Most likely, there is not enough evidence to convict. The incident was looked into as a misdemeanor battery, which carries a maximum jail sentence of six months. West was identified as a suspect in a battery case, as PopCulture reported. Around three in the morning, a fight broke out in downtown Los Angeles near the Soho Warehouse after an apparent quarrel with a fan.
West allegedly knocked a man to the ground near the beginning of the footage that TMZ received. The rapper yells at a woman to run away from him as he passes an unconscious man laying on the ground nearby. The woman who attempted to calm West down was, according to sources, West’s cousin.
The video appears to show West screaming at a person who is leaning up against a car. “Did you guys say that or the night? Did any of you say that or not? Due to the fact that something just f—ing happened, “West is audibly screaming. Because it looked to have been captured via blinds, the video didn’t show the altercation with the fan.
Witnesses said that the woman soothed West after he allegedly assaulted a fan looking for an autograph. He smacked him in the head and neck, the site claims, and his head “struck the ground hard.” West reportedly requested that a small group of bystanders refrain from taking his picture since he was having a difficult time. According to TMZ, West attacked the man “after someone answered saying it’s okay, we all go through family things.”
He was observed partying that night with his then-girlfriend, Julia Fox. Fox stayed in the club after West left. Uncut Gems featured Fox and Adam Sandler as co-stars. In an interview with Interview Magazine on January 6, the two revealed that they were dating. Over New Year’s Eve, Fox, 32, and West, 44, started dating. During their brief relationship, they went on a number of public outings. During an episode of her podcast Forbidden Fruits with Niki Takesh, Fox asserted that the relationship was real. On January 21, Fox said to Takesh, “People are like, ‘Oh, you’re only in it for the fame, you’re in it for the clout, you’re in it for the money.
