Kanye West Faces Lawsuit Over Alleged Assault on “Autograph Dealer” in Los Angeles


Kanye West is facing a lawsuit over an alleged assault that occurred two years ago in Los Angeles when a man, Justin Poplawski, approached him for an autograph. Poplawski and his wife, Tiffany Marshall, have enlisted the renowned attorney Gloria Allred to file the suit, which includes accusations of assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, and loss of consortium.

The incident reportedly took place on January 13, 2022, near the Soho Warehouse in DTLA. Poplawski, who identifies as a “well-respected autograph dealer,” claims that he had previously obtained an autograph from Kanye without any issues. However, during this encounter, Kanye allegedly struck him twice, once in the head and once in the neck, causing him to fall to the ground. Poplawski asserts that Kanye severely injured him while he was lawfully standing on public property.

In the lawsuit, Poplawski alleges that Kanye verbally threatened him, stating, “I’m going to make a fucking example of you,” and made reference to his divorce from Kim Kardashian. The amount of damages sought in the lawsuit has not been disclosed.

In response to the allegations, Kanye West shared his perspective in an interview with Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee shortly after the incident in 2022. Kanye claimed that Poplawski had given him attitude when he told him it wasn’t a good time for an autograph. Kanye explained that he had just received distressing news from his cousins related to parenting matters with Kim Kardashian, contributing to his emotional state during the altercation.

While Kanye admitted to a confrontation, he did not explicitly acknowledge physically striking Poplawski himself. The lawsuit is set to address the conflicting narratives surrounding the incident.
