Will Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Settle with Alleged Battery Victim?

Kanye West’s recent altercation with an 18-year-old man, in which the rapper allegedly punched the dude after he hurled racial insults at Kim Kardashian, may be heading toward a civil settlement.

Last week, Kim claims that while she was trying to enter a building in Beverly Hills, the young man became irate, calling her "n***er lover" among other things, and reportedly threatened her life.

She called her fiancé, who quickly arrived to the scene after the 18-year-old walked into a nearby chiropractor’s office. Eyewitnesses in the office said that Kanye came in with Kim and pummeled the guy.

According to TMZ, the teenager is asking Kanye for a ton of cash, but has no intention of taking the criminal case to court. The kid has also not been responsive with the police since the incident.

Sources now say both sides are currently in negotiations.

Meanwhile, Kim and Kanye have been in Paris for a few days, reportedly scouting locations for their upcoming wedding.

The two even visited the Palace of Versailles. Kim posted an Instagram pic, writing, “Versailles after dark.”

Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres last week that she thinks she and Kanye will marry sometime in the summer, but that no date has been set.
