Beverly Hills police are investigating rapper Kanye West for battery, according to a statement released Monday.
While the exact cause for the assault is unconfirmed, sources told TMZ and People that West got physical after the alleged victim directed offensive language, including the n-word, at fiancé Kim Kardashian.
This isn’t the first time West has been investigated for assault and battery. He has been involved in altercations with paparazzi at Los Angeles International twice; one case is pending, and the other was resolved following completion of anger management classes. He was also arrested in the UK for a similar incident.
