Kanye West Won't Be Charged After Allegedly Beating Teen In Beverly Hills

Kanye West will not face charges for allegedly assaulting a teen in Beverly Hills on January 13th. The L.A. County district attorney's office announced on Friday (Jan 31ST) that they will not prosecute Mr West or continue their investigation.

The Associated Press reports Kanye and the 18 year-old involved in the assault have agreed a civil settlement and there were no injuries following the incident. The report also notes that the evaluation sheet stated there were conflicting witness accounts into how many times the 'Black Skinhead' rapper stuck the man. 

The victim did not appear for a follow up interview with police, which played a part the investigation being dropped by the L.A country district office. Criminal defence attorney Troy Slaten, who isn't involved with the case, told E!News, "If they don't have a cooperative victim, the case is harder to prosecute. If you have no victim, it would most likely get dismissed."

The altercation stemmed from the man and the rapper's fiancé, Kim Kardashian, engaging in a verbal argument after he allegedly used a racial remark while she was visiting a medical center in Beverly Hills on Jan 13th.

Kim was being followed by swarms of photographers before attempting to enter the medical facility, the teenager helped her through the door before shouting inappropriate remarks at the paparazzi waiting for her outside.

He reportedly yelled, F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs" at the papz.

But when the reality TV star told the man he should not be using the N-word to offend others, he began to shout at her.

"F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut," he allegedly said.

Appalled at the man's behaviour, Kim, rang up her hubby Kanye as the teen walked into a chiropractor's office shouting "F**k you N****r."

When the 'Yeezus' hit maker arrived, he entered the building and reportedly stuck the man in the face several times, while Kim was heard shouting "we have it all on tape."
