Kanye West Allegedly Attacked Teen Over Racial Slurs Aimed at Kim Kardashian
Rapper Kanye West allegedly assaulted an 18-year-old man on Monday after the teen reportedly screamed derogatory remarks at Kim Kardashian while Kanye and Kim were in Beverly Hills.
According to TMZ, Kim was swarmed by paparazzi, as usual, and the teenager helped the reality TV star by holding the door to a medical building open for her.
As she walked in, the man allegedly called the paparazzi “fa**ot-ass n****rs,” but when Kim admonished him for using the N-word, he turned his ire on her, screaming, "F**k you, bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut." The 18-year-old then went into a nearby chiropractor's office.
Witnesses told TMZ Kanye and Kim went into the chiropractor's office waiting room a while later, where West allegedly punched the kid, while Kim screamed, "We have it all on tape."
Sources added the massage therapist in the office separated the two men. Beverly Hills cops were called, and the 18-year-old is reportedly going to press charges.
"Extra" reached out for comments from the couple's reps.
