Kanye West ... The dude's obviously troubled. And according to at least two exes, he's got an awfully violent temper.
If the rumors are true, Kim Kardashian may be dating a physically abusive mental case with a dangerously short fuse and a celebrity porn obsession. Worst of all, she is partially to blame.
Kanye's ex-fiancé, Alexis Phifer, is accusing the rapper of pushing her into some bushes during a Fourth of July party. The altercation allegedly went down after Phifer confronted the rapper about a naked picture she found of Kardashian on West's phone.
"Kanye was on his laptop, and Alexis came behind him and saw that he was looking at the screen of his phone -- at a naked picture of Kim," an unnamed source tells In Touch Weekly (via Media Takeout).
Phifer confronted Ye about the picture. But the Chicago rapper "became angry and defensive," according to the source.
"They went outside, and Kanye pushed Alexis into some bushes with all his force. She was wearing a t-shirt and she got cuts and scratches everywhere and was bleeding. She was crying. But he just left her there. He got in his car and drove away."
Disturbingly, Phifer isn't the first to accuse Kanye of abuse. Last year, Media Takeout published an email allegedly from West to a fan in which he admits that Rose "told people I beat her and all kind of wild shit."
What do you think, is Kanye the new Chris Brown?
