Kanye West arrested at Newcastle nightclub
Rap superstar Kanye West was arrested following a bust-up at a glitzy nightclub.
The 31-year-old was arrested in the early hours of this morning following the incident outside Tup Tup Palace cocktail bar in Newcastle, on suspicion of assault.
Earlier West wowed crowds at the city's Metro Arena as part of his Glow In The Dark UK tour.
A police spokesman said: "We can confirm that a 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault following an incident at a Newcastle city centre nightclub in the early hours of this morning.
"He was released without charge and no further police action is being taken."
The "newly enhanced" Tup Tup Palace is advertised online with a picture of a set of vampish young men and women draped across each other in various states of undress.
A spokesman for the Tup Tup Palace confirmed that the rap star had been a guest last night.
"He was here from about 1am to 2am with all his crew," the spokesman said.
"We had two of his DJs playing and Kanye had the whole VIP area booked out. He left about 2am and went to his hotel.
"We have no knowledge of any incident inside or outside."
The nightclub's Facebook page said since opening in December last year Tup Tup had become "a regular haunt for the likes of Girls Aloud, Dizzee Rascal, Ricky Hatton, Boyzone, Lethal Bizzle, Mike Ashley, Bryn Christopher, Alan Shearer and just about every football team from Scotland to London!!".
