Man whom Kanye West allegedly punched wanted rapper’s autograph twice

The fan Kanye West allegedly punched had asked for his autograph on two separate occasions, Page Six has learned.

We’re told the alleged victim, who remains unidentified, first asked for the Yeezy designer’s autograph outside of Craig’s in LA on Monday night, where West, girlfriend Julia Fox, Antonio Brown and others were dining to celebrate his Gap commercial.

Come Wednesday, the man appeared outside Delilah where Page Six reported the “Flashing Lights” rapper, the “Uncut Gems” star and a wide variety of other celebrities, including Madonna and Evan Ross, had been dining.

West, 44, ended up leaving Delilah without Fox, but it’s unclear where he immediately went. Hours later, he ended up leaving exclusive club Soho Warehouse where he allegedly punched the purported victim.

LAPD confirmed to Page Six Thursday that West is under investigation for alleged criminal battery.

Video of the alleged incident shows the artist shouting at a female member of his team as the unidentified fan lies on the ground. The unknown man is seen in the clip dressed in a pair of jeans and a black hoodie, and, though seemingly still conscious, does not get up from the ground.

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

“No, get away from me!” he responds. “Ain’t no hands, ain’t no hands.”

The unidentified woman then responds, “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 whom the “her” is referring.

Reps for West haven’t commented.
