Kanye West Allegedly Assaults Man Who Called Kim 'N-Word Lover' (UPDATE)

Kanye Allegedly Assaults Man Who Called Kim 'N-Word Lover'

Kanye West allegedly attacked an 18-year-old man after he got into an argument with the rapper's fiance, Kim Kardashian, and reportedly called her a "n-word lover," reports TMZ.

According to the website, Kardashian was being swarmed by a group of photographers outside a Beverly Hills medical building, when a man cleared a path to the building for the 33-year-old reality star. He then allegedly used racial and homophobic slurs when referring to the paparazzi. Kardashian reportedly responded that it was not appropriate to use the n-word, and he in turn began screaming at her, "F--k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up [n-word] lover, stupid slut."

Sources say the man continued to scream at Kardashian as they walked into the building and she called West on her cell phone. When West met up with Kardashian, they followed the man into a chiropractor's office. According to TMZ's sources, the 36-year-old rapper punched the man, while Kardashian yelled, "We have it all on tape."

Cops were called to the scene after the alleged assault occurred and the man reportedly wants to press charges, pending an investigation.

West is no stranger to scuffles, but they are usually with men on the other side of an expensive camera. The "Bound 2" rapper is currently due in court on Jan. 23 for a misdemeanor battery and attempted grand theft in a case filed by a paparazzo in September 2013.

UPDATE: Sources have now told TMZ that man who allegedly screamed profanities at Kardashian also allegedly threatened her life, shouting "I will kill you," at the reality star. Kardashian is reportedly planning on filing a police report of her own, and wants to see the man charged with making criminal threats.
