Kanye West reportedly assaults young man for yelling racial slurs at Kim Kardashian
Kanye West is reportedly being investigated for a misdemeanour battery incident after allegedly assaulting a young man in Beverly Hills earlier today.
According to E! News, Kim Kardashian was arriving at a design appointment in the Los Angeles suburb when the teen began yelling racial slurs at her. A source told the website that the young man was telling Yeezy’s fiancée to “shut the f**k up” and also used the N-word as part of his tirade of insults.
“Kim and Kanye were meeting for an appointment today,” explained the source.
"Kim arrived later than Kanye. En route into the building Kim saw a young man yelling racial slurs at the paparazzi. Kim told him he shouldn't use racial slurs and he turned on her and verbally assaulted her.
"The two ended up in a stairwell where the man was in her face and continued to verbally assault her," the insider continued. "She was genuinely scared."
At this point, Kanye is said to have rung his wife-to-be trying to find her as she had become late to her appointment. After overhearing the man yelling at Kim, he “came running down” and “confronted the guy.”
"The guy continued with the slurs," the source explained.
"He was in Kanye's face and wouldn't stop. He was taunting him. Police were called to the scene."
The Beverly Hills Police Department has not offered up any more information, but E! News reports that the young man was later seen leaving the building with a sweatshirt wrapped around his head.
