Kanye West sparked an uproar after he parked his $135,000 Tesla in a handicapped parking spot at the YMCA, leaving elderly visitors high and dry. According to a source, West, 41, was in the spot for two hours while he was inside the community gym in Monrovia, California to watch his friend's son play basketball.

The rapper, 41, rolled up in his custom Tesla Model S P100D sedan at around 11 a.m. on Nov. 24 and stayed until 1 p.m., a source told Radar. But instead of parking in one of the many available ordinary spaces, Kanye chose to leave it in the handicapped spot closest to the entrance.
The move sparked complaints among regular users of the Santa Anita Family YMCA, which runs activities for the elderly, handicapped and other local residents."It was definitely his car," said a source, who snapped photos of the careless infraction. "A few members complained that the car was taking the space but I don't think anybody mentioned anything to him. It was elderly people that complained."
"I don't know why he parked there because there is a lot of parking, but that space is right in front of the facility," said the source. "I don't know if he wanted to go in and out really fast."
"There are four handicapped spaces and there are a lot of elderly people so they get really full all the time," said the source. "There is a lot of regular parking at the back of the facility, at least 30 spaces. There were some free when he was parked. If he's not handicapped, why would he park there? I think it was very inconsiderate."
"I feel like he didn't think about what YMCA is," said the source of West, who was with his 5-year-old daughter, North, who seemed "shy and bored" at the YMCA basketball game. "It is for everybody. But I guess he is rich and doesn't care."
