New York police are searching for rapper Travis Scott after he allegedly punched a sound engineer and caused $12,000 worth of damage at a Manhattan nightclub early Wednesday morning, officials said.
Officers from the New York City Police Department’s Midtown Precinct South responded to Club Nebula on West 41st Street at about 3:25 a.m. after a sound engineer said “he was involved in a verbal dispute with” Scott, according to a department statement.
The rapper was accused of escalating the dispute “into a physical altercation. Travis Scott punched the victim with a closed fist on the left side of the face,” according to the NYPD.
Scott was also accused of causing about $12,000 worth of damage to a speaker and a video screen before fleeing west on 41st Street in a car, police said.
Investigators said they’re reviewing club surveillance video.
Earlier in the evening, Scott was at rapper Don Toliver’s show at Irving Plaza, about 25 blocks south of Club Nebula.
A representative for Scott said they were not aware of all of the details and did not want to make an immediate comment.
The 31-year-old artist, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster II, is the longtime boyfriend of reality TV star Kylie Jenner. They have two children together.
