Ye Accused Of Punching a Man in Defense of Bianca Censori

The altercation took place on April 16 at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles.

Ye (formerly Kanye West) is facing an investigation for physical battery after allegedly punching a man who “assaulted” his wife, Bianca Censori, at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles, Page Six reports.

In an altercation that took place Tuesday night (April 16), ’Milo Yiannopoulos, Ye’s chief of staff told the outlet that Censori’s alleged assailant did more than bump into her.

“Grabbed’ is grossly inadequate as a description of what happened. Bianca was physically assaulted. The assailant didn’t merely collide into her,” Yiannopoulos stated. 

“He put his hands under her dress, directly on her body, he grabbed her waist, he spun her around and then he blew her kisses. She was battered and sexually assaulted,” his statement continued.
