Kanye ‘Ye’ West made a bizarre post on Instagram on Thursday, following an incident in which he was accused of hitting a fan outside a club in downtown Los Angeles.
“MY LIFE WAS NEVER SIMPLE,” West, 44, captioned the image, which resembled an artistic interpretation of an animal with a skinned face and body against a red background.
In the post, West tagged fellow musical artist The Game, 42, who set the image as his main photo on Thursday night.

The incident involving West was under investigation by Los Angeles police, as the rapper was charged around 3 a.m. Thursday with pushing and beating a fan seeking an autograph near Soho West, a trendy club. in downtown Los Angeles.
Witnesses told TMZ that West hit the fan in the head and neck, and the person’s head hit the ground with a bang.
West was featured in a clip on TMZ arguing with a person and at one point saying, ‘Did you say that or not? Did you say all that or not? Because that’s exactly what happened… now.”
In the clip on the site, West told a woman to “get away from me,” to which the woman — who a source told TMZ is his cousin — replied, “I’m your family.”

According to TMZ, the alleged victim did not have a doctor in the incident, but later sought help from an emergency room.
West had been to a recording studio in Hollywood prior to the incident, the outlet reported.
West had left the area where the incident took place before police showed up, authorities told the Los Angeles Times.
Police told the outlet that the incident is under investigation as a felony, carrying a maximum jail term of six months. The Los Angeles city attorney’s office will review the police’s findings in the incident.
West is still in divorce proceedings with estranged wife Kim Kardashian, who last month asked a court to declare her legally single. The reality star, 41, has been linked with SNL star Pete Davidson, 28, in the wake of her split with West.
