The new year was starting off drama-free from Mr. Kanye West, until a teenager allegedly popped slick and pulled the race car. Reportedly, a physical altercation went down with Kanye Monday (January 13th) afternoon at a Los Angles chiropractor’s office. Here’s what reportedly happened: Kanye’s fiancee, Kim Kardashian, was at a Beverly Hills medical building when she was swarmed by photographers (which is pretty typical). TMZ reports that an 18-year-old guy allegedly tried to help Kim enter the building (protecting her from photogs) as he started screaming:
F**k these fa**ot-a$$-n****rs
aiming the slurs at paparazzi. Apparently, Kim told the alleged racial slur hurler that dropping the N-Word was not okay when the guy yelled back at her
F**k you b*tch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n***r lover, stupid slut.
After watching the guy walk into an office (while he continued berating her), she called Kanye on his cell, and when the guy realized Kanye was on the phone he allegedly said,
F**k you N****r.
Kanye arrived and all hell allegedly broke loose. Sources say Kanye and Kim rushed into the waiting room and witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed,
We have it all on tape.
Sources say the massage therapist in the office separated the 2 men. Beverly Hills and the guy now wants to press charges. Reportedly, Kanye is now officially a suspect in a battery investigation and they want to interview him. No official comments from Kanye or Kim’s rep have yet been released.
Kanye’s protective nature is nothing new. Last summer, he explained in a NYTimes interview just how serious he was about guarding his family explaining:
One of the things was just to be protective, that I would do anything to protect my child or my child’s mother.
Story developing. P.S. Does being called racial slurs warrant an a** kickin’?

Reportedly, Kim was also threatened with death by the man who hurled racial slurs at her. She’s filing a police report in efforts to get the guy prosecuted for making criminal threats. Kim has already met with her lawyer and they decided they will mount a counterattack by filing a police report. Nonetheless, this is not a good look for Kanye who is already facing battery charges for his alleged LAX assault on a photog.
