Kanye West and wife Bianca Censori ‘investigated by Italian police’ for NSFW behavior on boat in Venice

THE Italian police have begun investigating Kanye West and his wife Bianca Censori after they were caught in a compromising position. The couple caused controversy last week when they were spotted cruising down the canals in a water taxi, with the rapper’s pants pulled down and his wife’s head resting in his lap.

They have also requested that the photographer who caught the couple on camera turn over their photos for the investigation, according to the outlet.

The Venezian rental company also noted that a “third party on board the taxi” who rode with Ye and the architect had “obstructed the captain’s view” to where they were seated in the back of the vessel.
