Kanye West punches a teenager for allegedly insulting fiancée Kim Kardashian – Now facing battery charges
Kim Kardashian felt threatened with death by an 18-year-old man who allegedly yelled “I WILL KILL YOU, SLUT!” at the reality TV star on Jan. 13 while she was ducking swarms of paparazzi photographers.
According to TMZ, the teenager had been yelling at paps outside the building as Kim showed up. The guy apparently tried to help her get in the building … but then started shouting at Kardashian: “F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut.”
Kim then called Kanye West to tell him what’s going around and as the teenager became aware that Kanye was on the phone, he shouted: ’F**k you N****r’ loud enough that the rapper could hear.
The man then allegedly said: “F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs” – referencing the paparazzi, at which point Kim told him to stop using the N-word in front of her.
While it was all happening there, Kanye arrived on the scene, and witnesses tell that he punched the teenager while Kim screamed: “We have it all on tape.”
Law enforcement sources in Los Angeles have confirmed that West faces battery charges for allegedly punching the teen. “Kanye was named as a suspect by the victim as well as witnesses. He had left prior to our arrival, and detectives are currently investigating,” Beverly Hills Police Sgt George DeMarois told.
However Kim has already met with her lawyer, and they reportedly decided to file a police report to press charges on the man.
