Kanye West breaks silence over alleged battery incident
He continued, “Look, man, I love paparazzi. I love the press, I love the media, everything. But then they send these two in, probably as agents or something to really shed light on the situation.”
“He’s the same as the paparazzi, he’s not a fan,” Ye said of the alleged autograph seeker. “It’s someone who’s using your image, who’s probably never heard your songs, is there anyone who’s like, ‘This is my song, for real?'”
The incident happened more than a day before Ye released a new single, “Easy,” which references her ex. Kim Kardashian and their children and also features violent lyrics involving pete davidson, who the reality TV star has been dating since the fall.
TMZ released video of what appeared to be the aftermath of the alleged altercation, showing a man lying on a sidewalk as Ye shouted and argued with an unidentified woman trying to calm him down. She says to him: “I am your family”. TMZ reported that the woman is his cousin.
