Kanye West Pays Big Money to Teen After Assault
The saga between Kanye West and the teen he allegedly beat up appears to be over.
According to TMZ, the rapper-producer settled with the 19-year-old for a hefty payday. Sources tell the gossip website that the teen has agreed to a $250,000 payout and will most likely not pursue criminal charges against Yeezy.
As we previously reported, West got into a physical altercation with the young man at a chiropractor’s office. The 'Yeezus' creator assaulted the teen after he hurled racial epithets at Kim Kardashian.
Authorities have not yet decided whether to charge West with battery. However, during an appearance on the 'Ellen DeGeneres Show,' Kardashian said she plans to file charges against the teen.
West’s attorney, Shawn Holley, had no comment on the matter.
