Kanye West is now a suspect in a battery investigation after the rap star allegedly chased down an 18-year-old boy and punched him after the teen hurled racial slurs at the Grammy winner and his fiancée, Kim Kardashian.
According to TMZ, the dramatic altercation allegedly unfolded yesterday at around midday as Kardashian, 33, entered a furniture store - and the teenager held the door for her so she could walk into a furniture showroom in Beverly Hills.
As Kim walked in, the guy allegedly said:
'F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs' referring to the paparazzi .
The reality star told the young man that the N-word was not appropriate to use. That's when the teenager turned on the TV star, screaming:
'F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut.'
A perturbed Kardashian then allegedly phoned Kanye, 36, to tell him what was happening. Then, according to TMZ, 'when the guy realized Kanye was on the phone he allegedly said, 'F**k you N****r.' - so that the rap star could hear.
However, just minutes later, an enraged Kanye arrived to meet up with Kim and learn face-to-face what had happened.
The guy ran into a chiropractic office, Kanye and Kim stormed into the office and reportedly found the teen sitting there. Kanye confronted the guy but he continued with the slurs,' the source said. 'He was in Kanye's face and wouldn't stop. He was taunting Kanye.
Witnesses say Kanye then punched the guy and Kim screamed, 'We have it all on tape'. A third party had to separate the two men and shortly after police were called.
The unidentified 18-year-old man, has now told Beverly Hills police that he wants to press charges against the Yeesuz star and law enforcement sources in LA have confirmed that Kanye is now officially a suspect and that the matter has been referred to the LA County DA for possible prosecution.
