Famous American singer Kanye West has been sued for alleged assault and battery by a fan who approached him for an autograph.
According to TMZ, the autograph seeker said the assault occurred in 2022, at DTLA.
The man claimed to have demanded an apology from the singer to which he replied, “Apology for what?” before allegedly striking him again multiple times and severely injuring him.
He alleged that one of the people who accompanied Kanye tried to stop the attack, but he barked back, “go to the fucking house and get my fucking kids.
“Kanye screamed, ‘I’m going to make a fucking example of you’, before hitting me with a punch to the face.”
The man is suing for damages, claiming he has suffered emotional distress following the assault.
His wife is also suing Kanye West for a loss of consortium, saying she lost her husband’s companionship as a result of the incident.
