Kanye West is ‘suspect in battery investigation’ after allegedly throwing woman’s cellphone during heated exchange en route to kids’ basketball game
Kanye West has reportedly been named a suspect in a battery investigation after the rapper allegedly snatched a cellphone belonging to a woman and threw it.
According to a social media video, West, 45, was en route to his daughter North and son Saint’s basketball game in LA when the alleged incident occurred.
The rapper, who seemingly suspected he was being followed by paparazzi, is seen exiting his black Mercedes-Benz to allegedly confront the female in her vehicle.
His new ‘wife’ was seen in the passenger’s seat of his car and did not follow the Grammy Award-winner.

The woman – who has not been identified as either a fan or photographer – filmed the hitmaker from the driver’s seat as he said: ‘You didn’t have to run up on me like that.
‘If I say stop, stop with your cameras!’ Kanye continued, before the woman suggested she was able to film him since he was a ‘celebrity.’
The response may have angered Kanye as he allegedly grabbed the woman’s cellphone from her hand before tossing it into the air.
It’s unclear as to what led to the confrontation.
TMZ reported that he accused the woman of ‘following him’ and he has since been named suspect in a battery investigation.
The outlet further alleged that Ventura County Sheriff’s Department deputies were called and responded to the incident ‘around 4:30 PM and were provided video evidence of the incident.’
West’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian was also presented at Friday night’s game as she arrived with sister Khloe Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson. She had no involvement in incident and it appeared to take place out of the area.
West – who shares North, Saint, as well as daughter Chicago and son Psalm with Kim – shocked fans when it was reported that he had married new ‘wife’ Bianca Censori.
His divorce from Kim – whom he was married to for nearly seven years – was finalized in December but the former couple were declared legally single this past March.
