Kanye West Pays Alleged Racist $250,000
Only in America can someone threaten your wife and hurl racial epithets at her, and you end up paying that person a quarter million dollars. That’s the lesson Kanye West learned after he assaulted a teenager earlier this month that reportedly called his baby’s mama Kim Kardashian a “b*tch” and “n*gger lover.”
Mr. West reached an out of court settlement with the 18-year-old whose face he punched during the altercation at a Beverly Hills doctor’s office. On Wednesday, TMZ reported that Ye paid the man $250,000 in a civil settlement, and consequently, the man said he will not go forward with criminal prosecution.
West was under investigation after being named a suspect in a misdemeanor battery assault complaint filed by the victim.
