According to the city’s attorney, Kanye West won’t be prosecuted for reportedly hitting a man in Los Angeles in January.
Rob Wilcox, a spokesman for the LA City Attorney, stated that “after a comprehensive and careful assessment of all the material, our office is declining to file based on no reasonable prospect of conviction.”
The Grammy-winning musician allegedly got into a physical altercation after someone requested his autograph.
According to early accounts, the man was a fan who earlier in the week had requested West’s autograph.
The individual was a professional autograph broker, according to West’s representatives, who had been pursuing the rapper for more than a day and was invading his personal space.
When the man inquired once more that evening, West became enraged, according to a Page Six report at the time, which resulted in the altercation.
West’s attorney Michael Goldstein issued a statement to The Post saying, “My client is delighted with the judgement by the City Attorney’s office, which recognises that he has done nothing wrong.”
On January 13, after West had spent the previous evening with his then-girlfriend Julia Fox, the event is said to have happened early in the morning.
The man was seen on the scene’s video lying on the ground following the
alleged punch, and West’s yelling at a staff member could be heard.
