Kanye West — who recently legally changed his name to Ye — was spotted mixing business with pleasure while out and about in Calabasas on Thursday, January 20.
The "Flashing Lights" rapper looked stern as he made his way from a possible meeting at his office not far from his home in Hidden Hills, but was later caught enjoying a celebratory ice cream cone from a local dessert shop that same day.
As OK! previously reported, West, 44, has had a rough time as of late. The father-of-four has been speaking out publicly about his high profile divorce with Kim Kardashian, 41, and his frustration with not being able to spend all the time he'd like with his children, all while under investigation for battery charges after punching a man in the face in downtown Los Angeles.
The "Gold Digger" artist recently sat down with Jason Lee on Hollywood Unlocked, and claimed the physical altercation was not with a fan as previously rumored, but someone attempting to sell his autographs online.
"Look, man, I love the paparazzi. I love the press, I love the media, everything. But then they send those two, probably like some agents or something to really gaslight the situation," he told the show host. "This is the same as the paparazzi, this is not a fan."
"So I end up getting into an altercation with the guy that wanted to make money off of my autographs," he continued, later lamenting, "Everyone is using me. Everyone is on my payroll and everyone is using me."
It's no wonder the billionaire needed to blow off some steam and take a few moments to himself!
