UPDATED 4/18, 7:40 a.m. ET: A Ye rep has disputed the characterization of the individual’s behavior, saying in a statement to Complex that Bianca Censori was "physically assaulted," not "grabbed" as initially reported. See the full statement from Ye’s rep below.

‘Grabbed’ is grossly inadequate as a description of what happened. Bianca was physically assaulted. 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.

See original story below.

Ye is reportedly being sought by the LAPD over an alleged battery incident they say went down on Tuesday night.

Per TMZ, police were told that 46-year-old Ye punched a stranger in the face after the man "allegedly pushed or grabbed West's wife, Bianca Censori."

The outlet claims Ye and Bianca left after the altercation and the alleged victim didn't need treatment for any injuries.

"We're told police plan on reaching out to Kanye for his side of the story, and will also speak to witnesses," TMZ adds.

Ye and Censori were spotted at Disneyland with Yung Lean earlier Tuesday. Enjoying the park on Star Wars Nite, they were also joined by designer Juliet Charlotte and director Aus Taylor.

In January Ye was sued by a former fan claiming the 24-time Grammy-winner attacked him two years earlier when asked for an autograph. Last summer he was hit with a lawsuit for allegedly assaulting photographer Nichol Lechmanik and throwing her phone into traffic.

In legal news not related to accusations of assault, Ye and Ty Dolla Sign faced a suit in February for an unauthorized interpolation of Donna Summer’s voice on the Vultures 1  song “Good (Don’t Die).” While it's still visible on the chart-topping collab album's tracklist, it's no longer streamable.

Ye infamously said in an interview way back in 2013, "I almost borderline like being sued, because it's the only time where I can be myself. I sit in those depositions and it be hilarious."
