The artist spoke in regards to the DTLA incident with Hollywood Unlocked‘s Jason Lee, and defined plainly that he needed to set the file straight.
The attention-grabbing factor, although, is that Ye seems to verify the interplay with the unnamed sufferer through the incident, explaining at one level that the sufferer apparently wasn’t a fan, however a paparazzi member (beneath):
“So so far as the paparazzi goes, proper, like, it wasn’t a fan. It was 3 a.m. in entrance of the warehouse. I’m saying, ‘you don’t know what I’m coping with proper now.’ I simply completed these two songs, I got here from the studio. I created the file, this impromptu shoot, and my cousins went and did actually ship the mission. And this dude simply, he simply had this actual perspective, like, ‘whatchu gonna do? And see that?’ Imma simply let you know, that blue COVID masks ain’t cease that knockout, you already know what I’m saying?”
When Lee requested whether or not it was “taunting,” or “disrespect,” or “disregard on your privateness” that set him off, Ye confirmed that its was the entire above, and added:
“It’s all of that, however that’s what Hollywood be. Look, man, I really like the paparazzi. I really like the press, I really like the media, every thing. However then they ship these two, most likely like some brokers or one thing to actually gaslight the scenario. This will’t be captured in a headline. That is the explanation why I needed to take a seat down and discuss to you immediately and discuss to the world about precisely what occurred.”

West additional defined that the aftermath of the incident was caught on video as he was arguing together with his feminine cousins. He instructed Lee they’d apparently failed to speak to estranged spouse Kim Kardashian about “private parenting issues,” per ET.
“So now my cousins are coming again they usually haven’t delivered on it. So I find yourself entering into an altercation with the man that needed to earn cash off of my autographs, then my cousin pulls up and he or she’s speaking to me. I say, ‘give me a breather. Get away from me.’ She just isn’t taking accountability for the truth that she didn’t do what she was speculated to do, and that added to me being in a temper the place I used to be like, ‘I’m not going to have this.’ Everyone seems to be utilizing me. Everyone seems to be on my payroll and everyone seems to be utilizing me.”
Uh-oh — that’s not good in any respect.
ET spoke to Lee himself on Friday, too, and it’s attention-grabbing to listen to the interviewer share his ideas about the entire scenario. For one, Lee argued that although Ye spoke in regards to the altercation, he did not particularly admit to placing anybody:
“Effectively we didn’t see Kanye punch him, so who is aware of. My factor is, should you don’t have the direct proof, it didn’t occur. He didn’t say that he knocked the man out, he didn’t admit to knocking the man out. He mentioned that the blue masks couldn’t defend him from what was to come back. There have been different individuals there within the video, who is aware of the precise particulars.”
Certain, that’s true, however man… the knockout quote positively doesn’t assist the scenario in any respect. Particularly contemplating Ye’s recently-leaked diss monitor saying he needed to do mainly the identical factor to Pete Davidson.
What do U make of this replace to the contentious DTLA scenario, Perezcious readers?
