Kanye West is under investigation by the Beverly Hills Police Department after punching yet another person. In West’s defense, if the details of the case are true, the punch does seem at least a little warranted. According to reports, West’s fiancée, Kim Kardashian, was headed to a meeting when an 18-year-old man began shouting epithets at the paparazzi surrounding her, allegedly calling them “f----t-ass n-----s”—something Kardashian told him wasn’t cool. The same man then began directing his slurs at her, calling her a “stupid slut” and a “n----- lover.”
Supposedly Kardashian then dialed up West, whom the man is also said to have called the n-word, apparently around the same time he was telling Kardashian he would “kill [her], slut.” Minutes later, West showed up and tracked the man to a nearby chiropractor's waiting room, then punched him. West left the scene before police could arrive. According to TMZ, Kardashian screamed, "We have it all on tape!"
The BHPD confirmed that West is currently a suspect in the alleged assault—his second such charge, following a confrontation with a paparazzo last year. As one might expect, the West-Kardashian contingent is also filing a police report about the incident, and is hoping the mouthy stranger will be charged with whatever yelling terrible things at Kim Kardashian gets you.
