Remember early last week when we learned that Kanye West allegedly physically assaulted an 18-year old man after he allegedly verbally assaulted Kanye’s babymama inside an office building in Beverly Hills, CA. At the time, I speculated that the legal case that might erupt from that incident might be completely avoided if the parties decide on a financial settlement to make the matter go away. Today we learn that the 18-year old is reportedly interested in settling and Kanye’s legal team is reportedly figuring out a financial settlement that would be amenable to both parties. As I suspected, Kanye West will likely pay handsomely for losing his temper and beating on the guy who reportedly hurled racial slurs at his lady.
The 18-year-old who Kanye West allegedly beat up last week in a chiropractor’s waiting room has approached the rapper, asking for a ton of money to settle the case without criminal prosecution … TMZ has learned. Sources connected with the 18-year-old tell us … his lawyer called Kanye’s people and expressed the desire to strike a civil settlement — FOR A PRICE — several hundred thousand dollars. We’re told the 18-year-old is adamant — he does NOT want to go through a public trial. As we reported … Kim Kardashian claims the young man was hurling racial epithets, calling her a “n***er lover” among other things. We’re also told he has not been responsive with the police since the incident. As for the $$$ … although eyewitnesses in the Beverly Hills chiropractor’s office say Kanye pummeled the guy … we’re hearing he has no apparent injuries. Nonetheless, avoiding a criminal trial has a price. Sources say both sides are currently in negotiations.
YUP, this is playing out pretty much the way I expected it to. So, not only does this 18-year jerk get away with saying really horrible things to the woman that Kanye loves but he also gets to walk away with “several hundred thousand dollars” for doing so … all because Kanye doesn’t have the ability to control his anger. Even if the jerk gets $10.00 he wins. Kanye doesn’t win in any of this. I doubt he got any satisfaction from beating on the guy … or maybe he did, who knows. If Kanye pays this guy to avoid prosecution then he won’t really learn anything from the situation. He will likely do the same thing the next time someone angers him … or his babymama. If a settlement is struck, everyone loses … except for the guy who will walk away with a huge chunk of cash. Blah. It’s all just so gross, ain’t it?
