Rapper Kanye West is under investigation after a report of battery was filed against him, Los Angeles police have said.

The incident which triggered the complaint allegedly took place in downtown Los Angeles at around 3am on Thursday, LAPD spokeswoman Redina Puentes said.

No arrests have been made.

The street where the alleged incident took place is outside Soho West, a members-only club popular with celebrities.

The 44-year-old rapper, who legally changed his name to Ye last year, is in the middle of divorce proceedings with Kim Kardashian West.

She filed a request last month to be declared legally single and have his former last name dropped, citing irreconcilable differences that "continued to exist" between the pair.
