Kanye 'Ye' West has been accused of battery in a LAPD report after a man allegedly sexually assaulted and inappropriately touched his wife Bianca Censori in Los Angeles.

On April 16 night, by the Chateau Marmont hotel, the 46-year-old rapper allegedly hit an unnamed male who the LAPD said in a battery report had first 'pushed or grabbed' Bianca, according to the report obtained by TMZ.

Kanye's team has since released a statement.

It said: "'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."

In retaliation, Kanye is said to have punched him but did not require medical attention.

Kanye and Bianca are then said to have fled the scene.

Detectives were filmed by Fox News outside the hotel investigating the incident and making enquiries.
