Kanye West has been accused of punching a man who allegedly "physically assaulted" his wife Bianca Censori.

The Stronger rapper, also known as Ye, has been named as a suspect in a battery report, according to TMZ.

Law enforcement sources told the outlet that police officers are investigating the claims against the musician, who allegedly punched a man in the face after he allegedly grabbed or pushed Censori in Hollywood late Tuesday.

However, a representative for the Touch the Sky hitmaker insisted that Censori was "physically assaulted" by the man.

"'Grabbed' is grossly inadequate as a description of what happened. Bianca was physically assaulted," the rep told TMZ. "The assailant didn't merely collide into her. 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."

West and Censori reportedly left the scene after the alleged altercation at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood. The alleged victim did not require treatment for his injuries.

Earlier that day, the couple, who got married in December 2022, were spotted walking hand-in-hand around Disneyland.

West, 46, has found himself at the centre of battery investigations in the past. Last year, he was accused of grabbing and throwing a photographer's phone, and in 2022, he was accused of punching an autograph hunter. He wasn't charged for either incident.
