1/14/13 UPDATE: TMZ is now reporting that the man who verbally assaulted Kim threatened her with death. "I will kill you, slut," he allegedly screamed. The reality star is now reportedly filing a police report and wants the man prosecuted for those scary threats.
I guess some people haven't heard that if you mess with Kim Kardashian, you will feel the full wrath of Kanye. The rapper is accused of attacking an 18-year-old after he allegedly called Kim a n***** lover. Now, I'm typically not a big supporter of Kanye's over-the-top reactions, but once I heard the details of this crazy incident, I can't blame him one bit for being enraged.
Kim was at a Beverly Hills medical building when she was overrun with paparazzi. According to TMZ, the guy in question tried to help Kim get into the building and then started screaming obscenities at the photogs. "F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs!" he shouted.
When Kim told him his choice of words was not appropriate, he turned on her. "F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut," he reportedly said. When Kanye arrived shortly after, he and Kim went into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the foul-mouthed kid sitting there. As witnesses tell it, Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, "We have it all on tape."
The tussle got so heated that a massage therapist in the office had to jump in to separate the two. Of course the police were called and the 18-year-old reportedly wants to press charges. Now Kanye may be at the center of a battery investigation.
This isn't good news for the rapper who is also facing assault charges for a dust-up with a photographer at LAX airport. But he may get more sympathy for this latest incident. Though violence is never the answer, this guy was asking for trouble by attacking Kim that way.
Do you think Kanye overreacted? Or do you understand why he allegedly did what he did?
