Theophilus London publicly confronts Ian Connor at a fashion event and proceeds to go after him on Twitter, referring to the young model as a "dirty fucking rapist."

UPDATE (06/23/16 | 4:49PM EST): Another video has now surfaced that was presumably taken before Ian Connor punched Theophilus London in the face. The two of them are standing face-to-face, as London -- the considerably taller figure -- looks down at Connor and tells him, "Touch me, I'll slap the shit out you." 

As the conflict involving him, Connor, and A$AP Bari (who connected on a ferocious punch to Connor's face -- see below) has made headlines, London has continued to sound off on Twitter. During his latest his rant, he alleges that he took Connor in when he was homeless and that he was the person who introduced Connor to Kanye West. He tells Connor that "Kanye don't even want your ass around anymore." 

London also implies that he knows a woman who might be able to add to the pile of damning accusations that have already been levied against Connor. 

As for A$AP Bari, he, too, has now threatened Connor on social media, tweeting at his handle, "Now every time I see you I'm beating the shit outta you." 

UPDATE (06/23/16 | 4:03PM EST): It seems that a group of hip-hop affiliated fashionistas were gathered in Paris today, and the scene got ugly -- much uglier than we had initially suspected. It was just reported that Theophilus London blasted Connor on Twitter, calling him a "dirty fucking rapist," and a video had surfaced of a confrontation between Connor and London at today's event that was seemingly diffused by A$AP Rocky. Now, videos of two more confrontations -- each of them much more violent -- have surfaced. 

The first video shows guys like Virgil Abloh, A$AP Bari, Connor, and Rocky gathered by a table of merch inside a boutique. All of a sudden, Connor walks up to London, who appears to be minding his own business, and throws a vicious punch at his face. Again, Rocky attempts to act as the peacekeeper before security steps in. Look closely toward the back of the room, and you'll see a man in orange -- A$AP Bari -- throwing a few swings himself, seemingly directed at Connor. 

Indeed, the feud was not limited to London and Connor. After the scuffle broke out in the store, those involved were moved outside, and that's when Bari decided to really let loose on Connor, connecting on a heavy punch to the side of his face as the 19-year-old model was positioned by the hood of a car. It looks like both Connor and Bari are ready to keep sparring when the clip cuts out, so stay tuned for more details on how the conflict was able to resolve itself (or not). Chances are, there's still a whole lot of bad blood that's waiting to explode.

Ian Connor, model and creative aide to rappers like A$AP Rocky and Kanye West, was first accused of rape in April. He has since been accused of the same crime by at least five more women, most of whom have shared detailed accounts of the alleged assaults. From the start, Connor was quick to deny all of the accusations against him, and in some cases, he has responded by hurling invective at the alleged victims on social media. Throughout the controversy, not one of Connor's rapping acquaintances -- nor even any males in general -- have come forward to address the troubling claims -- until just recently, that is. Theophilus London, also a noted friend and collaborator of Kanye and Rocky, has just threatened Connor on social media, calling him a "dirty fucking rapist." 

Not only that, but a video has surfaced of London approaching Connor, saying "Don't try to act Hollywood like you don't know me, my n*gga," as Connor tries to remove himself from the confrontation. A$AP Rocky can be seen trying to diffuse the tense situation. 

The heated encounter between him and Connor may have occurred today, as London just shared a picture of himself in the same outfit as the one he wears in the above video. 

Also today, presumably shortly after their run-in, London threatened Connor on Twitter, tagging him in a post that reads, "Every time I see u I'm gonna fuck you up, Every time you dirty fucking rapist." 

London also called out Connor for embarrassing the team of powerful creatives -- himself, Virgil Abloh, and A$AP Bari -- that helped him rise to fame. He tells Connor to "get security bro asap."
