Kanye West Resolves Battery Case Out Of Court; Set To Pay Victim Over $250,000

Posted By on January 28, 2014

Kanye West recently had an altercation at a doctors office where he went after a kid for yelling racial slurs at Kim Kardashian and himself. Now according to reports, Kanye and the kid have finally come to a settlement over the altercation and West is set to owe the kid over $250,000 for his actions.

According to TMZ, the victim has agreed to a civil settlement and will not move forward with the criminal charges.

 “Sources familiar with the negotiations tell us … the young man who allegedly hurled racial epithets at Kim earlier this month has agreed to the civil settlement and now feels satisfied enough that he does NOT want to go forward with a criminal prosecution.” (TMZ)

According to law enforcement, the D.A. has not decided if he will charge Kanye with battery or not, but it will be pretty hard to press the charges without the victim’s cooperation

 “Law enforcement sources tell us … the D.A. has not decided whether to charge Kanye with battery. The reality is … there’s almost no chance of that happening.  First, the D.A. now has an uncooperative victim.  Second, the victim’s alleged racial epithets will not sit well with the jury.  And there are probably lots of Kanye fans in the jury pool.” (TMZ)
