Kanye West reaches $250,000 settlement with chiropractor beating victim

By Daniel S Levine,

Earlier this month, Kanye West allegedly beat up an 18-year-old at a Beverly Hills chiropractor’s office and was being investigated for the beating. However, the case is now closed, as the Yeezus rapper has agreed to pay him over $250,000.

West allegedly beat the man after he continued to say the N-word around Kim Kardashian, West’s fiancee and the mother of his child. The man actually helped the couple get into the office, which was surrounded by paparazzi. Kardashian turned to him to tell him to stop yelling the N-word. His reply was, “F--k you b--ch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n----r lover.”

That set off West, who then beat the man up.

Now, TMZ is reporting that the man and West decided to settle the case for over $250,000. The man has his money and doesn’t want to press charges. The site notes that the Los Angeles DA’s office likely won’t go forward with the case, since the victim doesn’t want the case to continue and there’s a small chance that a jury would rule in favor of a man who yelled the N-word at a celebrity.

Meanwhile, RadarOnline is reporting that Kardashian has successfully convinced West to let E! film their wedding, which a source for the site claims will take place in Paris.
