West recently cancelled his tour of North America
Rap star Kanye West has apologised to fans after he removed a video directed by Spike Jonze from his website.
The 14-minute video - titled We Were Once A Fairytale - features West acting the part of a drunken club-goer, harassing women and stumbling around.
It culminates in a brief sex scene before West is seen stabbing himself and releasing a demon from his stomach.
West's blog says: "Sorry I had to take it down." It is not known why the video was removed.
However, copies of the short film, which feature's West's track See You In My Nightmares, have appeared elsewhere on the internet.
Earlier this month, the rapper cancelled his North American tour with Lady GaGa at short notice.
The move came just weeks after he was criticised for storming on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards.
West experienced widespread negative publicity after interrupting country star Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the cermony.
He told her Beyonce should have won the best female award instead.
No reason has given for the tour cancellation but West has admitted he needed to take time off to grieve for his mother, who died two years ago after complications during surgery.
Since Donda West's death, the star frequently broken down on stage while performing Hey Mama, a song he had dedicated to her.
Last year's sombre 808s and Heartbreak album dealt with both the loss of his mother and the recent break-up with his fiancee, Alexis Phifer.
