Kanye West yells in video of alleged Los Angeles battery incident

A new video of Kanye West in a fit of rage after the alleged battery incident has arrived online.

Footage obtained by TMZ and released Thursday afternoon showed the billionaire rapper, 44, screaming at a member of his band while an unknown man lay on the ground.

The victim appears to be the fan, who earlier Page Six reported had asked Yi for an autograph before allegedly hitting him.

The unidentified man is shown in the clip wearing jeans and a black hoodie, and although he appears to be still conscious, he is not rising from the ground.

Meanwhile, West is heard yelling at the employee, “Get away from me,” as she tries to comfort him and says, “Give me your hand.”

“No, get away from me!” answered. “There are no hands, and there are no hands.”

Then the unidentified woman said, “I am your family. Give me your hand.”

West then tells her, “You were supposed to talk to her!” It is unclear from the footage to which “she” refers.

The videographer is shown in shock by the ordeal, and can be heard asking in the clip, “Why did he do that?”

West and his representatives did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

Earlier Thursday, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman confirmed to us that the music mogul is under investigation for the alleged criminal beating.

We’re told West got into an argument that turned around around 3 a.m. local time on Thursday when a fan asked him for his autograph while sitting in his SUV outside the private Soho Warehouse Club.

Fox 11 was the first to report the news.

In a separate video taken in a parking lot outside the club on Thursday, the “Heartless” rapper can be heard telling two women, “Did you say that or not? Did you say that or not?”

West has been open about his struggles with bipolar disorder. In July 2020, a source told People, “In the past, he has had manic and depressive episodes associated with bipolar disorder. At the moment, he is struggling again.”

The CEO of Yeezy is in the midst of a divorce from Kim Kardashian, with whom he shares four children. However, he’s been in good spirits recently, going out to frequent dinners with his new girlfriend Julia Fox.

In the hours leading up to the accident, West and Fox, 31, attended a star-studded gathering at the Delilah Club on Wednesday night. Celebrities including Evan Ross, Madonna and Antonio Brown also attended.
