Kanye West goes off on paparazzi

Kanye West could face charges after allegedly attacking an 18-year-old in Beverly Hills on Monday (Jan. 13), who called him the “N” word.

According to TMZ.com, the rapper’s fiance Kim Kardashian visited a Beverly Hills medical building with her swarm of paparazzi in tow. The teen tried to help her get into the building and stop the paparazzi, calling them “fa****-ass n*****s.’ But, the reality star didn’t appreciate his choice of words, telling him it wasn’t nice to use the “N” word.

In response, he told her: “Shut up n***** lover, stupid slut.”

TMZ says he continued berating Kim as they were walking, so she called Kanye. As they spoke, they guy said realized who she had phoned and yelled, “F*** you n*****,” prompting Ye to get into his car and head over.

When he showed up, Kanye and Kim rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the 18-year-old sitting there. That’s when Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, “We have it all on tape.” They were eventually separated, Beverly Hills cops were called and the 18-year-old said he wanted to press charges.

While Kanye was not arrested, TMZ says he’s officially a suspect in a battery investigation and they want to interview him.
