Kanye West might be in major trouble for beating the bejesus out of an 18-year-old jerkoff who was overhead hurling a racial epithet at his beloved baby mama Kim Kardashian -- but it was Kim who tried to claim she was essentially acting in self defense when she called up Kanye Fist to come save her. She reportedly claimed that not only did the guy call her the despicable epithet "n***er lover" but that he also said "I will kill you, slut." NOT nice. But did he really take it to that extreme? RadarOnline says probably not.

The gossip rag, which has some good sources, or at least some sources who practically claim to know exactly what happened, say that no witnesses have been able to corroborate Kim's view of events. Kim apparently said that he "threatened to kill her, and she was fearful for her life" -- which would explain calling up her fiance instead of 911, I guess -- but that the witnesses never heard the threat.

The source says:

There are no witnesses that can substantiate Kim’s claims that heard the threat. Kim hasn’t filed an official police report yet, but it will be very interesting if she does, because cops want to question her about what she saw and heard when Kanye entered the office, and allegedly began hitting him. If Kim was in such fear for her life, why did she call her fiancee and not the cops? She could have -- and should have -- done that instead of Kanye seeking some sort of vigilante justice.

I suspect Kim didn't call police because she's so accustomed to a guy -- or her mom -- rushing in to save her and protect her. If Khloe had been around, she probably would have called her. Seriously, Kim, you can't deal with some douchewad yourself?

I also suspect that Kim got a little thrill watching her man beat someone up -- a theory backed-up by sources who claim she is running around calling Kanye a "real man" for kicking some ass.

Kim must be accustomed to all kinds of haters by now, it's amazing she hasn't learned how to deal with them. And now Kanye could get put in jail over what was essentially a lie on Kim's part. Who knows, maybe Kanye would have gone after the kid anyway given his language -- but I suspect Kim upped the ante with her story of being threatened.

Do you think Kim is telling the truth?
