As Kanye West's felony assault investigation continues, RadarOnline.com has learned that the rapper left all the legal drama behind and jetted off to Paris. He was spotted arriving at Charles De Gaulle airport in the French capital on Thursday, with no Kim Kardashian or baby North in sight.

"He's in town for fashion week, for the men's shows," an insider tells Radar exclusively. The Paris Fashion Week men's presentations began on Wednesday, and will run to Sunday, with West's BFF Riccardo Tisci presenting the Givenchy men's show on Friday at 12:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, back in L.A., detectives continue to investigate the alleged assault that occurred on Monday. West allegedly attacked in 18-year-old in the office of a Beverly Hills chiropractor after the teen reportedly used homophobic and racist slurs in front of West's fiancée, Kardashian.

As Radar has reported, prosecutors are currently investigating West for felony assault and battery connected to the incident.

His criminal record, which includes a misdemeanor no contest plea to battery of a photographer in 2008, and a pending battery case stemming from an earlier altercation with a paparazzo, are "absolutely going to hurt him in the Beverly Hills Police Department's investigation into his actions, a law enforcement source previously  told RadarOnline.com. "No, this young man shouldn't have said those disgusting things, but this is America ... The fact that Kanye went on his own will into a place of business and got in someone's face and allegedly hit him could result in him being charged with felony assault and/or battery. It will all depend on the severity of the injuries, and Kanye's version of events, if he chooses to cooperate."
