Video shows Kanye West screaming as man he allegedly punched lays on the ground

New video of Kanye West in a fit of rage following his alleged battery incident has hit the internet.

The footage, obtained by TMZ and published Thursday afternoon, shows the billionaire rapper, 44, shouting at a female member of his team as an unidentified man lies on the ground.

The victim appears to be the fan, whom Page Six reported earlier had asked Ye for his autograph before allegedly being struck by him.

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 rise 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 chimes in, “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 who the “her” is he is referring to.

The videographer appears in shock over the ordeal, and can be heard asking in the clip, “Why did he just do that?”

West and his reps did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.

Earlier on Thursday, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to us that the music mogul was under investigation for alleged criminal battery.

We were told West got into an argument that turned physical around 3 a.m. local time Thursday when a fan asked him for his autograph while he was sitting in his SUV outside of the private club Soho Warehouse.

Fox 11 was first to report the news.

In a separate video taken at a parking lot outside the club Thursday, the “Heartless” rapper can be heard telling two women, “Did y’all say that or not? Did y’all say that or not?”

West has been open about his struggles with bipolar disorder. In July 2020, a source told People, “In the past, he has suffered both manic and depressive episodes related to his bipolar disorder. Right now, he is struggling again.”

The Yeezy CEO is in the midst of a divorce from Kim Kardashian, with whom he shares four kids. However, he has appeared in good spirits lately, going out to frequent dinners with new girlfriend Julia Fox.

In the hours leading up to the incident, West and Fox, 31, attended a star-studded gathering at restaurant-club Delilah Wednesday night. Celebrities including Evan Ross, Madonna and Antonio Brown were also present.
