It is not Kanye's week. First he lost Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song at the Grammys and now he has to pay $250,000 settlement to a guy who called his fiancée a "ni***r-lover" and "stupid slut." West is known for his temper, especially around paparazzi, but come on. We're on his side this on this one.
As previously reported, West had allegedly punched the 18-year-old man for yelling racist epithets at Kim Kardashian after photographers at a Beverly Hills medical building swarmed around her. The man had reportedly tried to help her get through the crowed and said to her, "F**k these fa**ot-ass n***rs," referring to the paparazzi. She reportedly told him not to use the N-word, and he screamed at her, "F**k you, b*tch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n***r lover, stupid sl*t." West allegedly attached attacked him in a chiropractor's office shortly after.
According to TMZ, the man has agreed to a civil settlement and will not go forward with criminal prosecution. He had reportedly demanded a settlement in the upper six figures but ended up with $250,000.
West could still technically be brought up on misdemeanor battery, but it's unlikely. Kardashian, however, still intends to pursue legal action against her verbal assailant, who she claims threatened to kill her, according to TMZ.
