Los Angeles, Jan 14: Rapper Kanye West has been accused of attacking an 18-year-old after he used the N-word for him and his fiancee, socialite Kim Kardashian.
Kim was at a Beverly Hills medical building when she was swarmed by photographers. The guy allegedly tried to help Kim get in the building, and started screaming, "F**k these...n****rs" - referring to the paparazzi.
When Kim told him that it was not appropriate to use the N-word, he screamed at her, "F**k you b***h. Just trying to help you. Shut up N****r lover,..." reports tmz.com.
Kim then called up Kanye and when the guy realised Kanye was on the phone, he said: "F**k you N****r."
Sources say Kanye and Kim rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the 18-year-old sitting there. According to witnesses, Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, "We have it all on tape."
Sources also mentioned that a massage therapist in the office separated the two men and Beverly Hills cops were called. The teenager said he wanted to press charges.
Law enforcement sources said that Kanye is now officially a suspect in a battery investigation and they want to interview him.
The matter will be referred to the LA County District Attorney for possible prosecution.
