TMZ: Kanye West punched racist teenager 30 times while Kim watched silently


Alright, just some follow-up reporting on the whole “Kanye West opened up a can of whoop-ass on a racist teenager” story. The basic gist seems to be the same: this odd-seeming 18-year-old kid basically followed Kim into a medical building and when she told the kid to chill out, he started screaming obscenities at her, calling her a slut and a whore and dropping a few n-bombs. Kim either called or texted Kanye, who rode in on his white horse to defend his lady. I can’t really tell if this kid said anything directly to Kanye – sources have mixed information – but the kid ended up sitting in a doctor’s office and Kanye found him and started punching him. TMZ has a story on how the beatdown happened:

Kanye West was like a boxer going in for the kill … pummeling an 18-year old guy with more than 30 blows … this according to an eyewitness.

We broke the story … an 18-year-old allegedly called Kim a “n****r lover” on his way into the office of a Beverly Hills chiropractor. Minutes later, Kim and Kanye stormed in — Kim ID’d the kid — and her baby daddy went nuts.

The eyewitness tells TMZ … the 18-year-old was sitting in a chair as Kanye made a beeline for him and, without saying a word, started slugging him in the face. The kid was covering his face but Kanye was unrelenting. Kim just stood there and silently watched the beating.

The receptionist was screaming, “Stop, stop,” but Kanye ignored her. The kid quickly curled up into a ball to block the blows.

The massage therapist rushed into the waiting room and pushed Kanye off the kid and ordered him out of the office. Kanye got out of the building and Kim went to another office for a meeting.

[From TMZ]

“The kid was covering his face but Kanye was unrelenting. Kim just stood there and silently watched the beating.” That scares me a little. Like, was Kim in shock? Maybe. Or does she know Kanye’s moods so well that she just disassociates when Kanye is in a rage?

Anyway, the NYDN has some other sources (named Kardashian) and there are a few new details – you can read the full story here. Let’s see… Kim has been talking to her lawyer about what her next moves are to file a police report against the kid. She has not filed anything as of yesterday afternoon. A source told the NYDN: “He [the kid] threatened to hit her. He said, ‘I bet I could beat you.’ She’s tiny, and if someone is following you screaming, ‘Slut! N—er lover! C–t,’ you don’t know if you’re dealing with an insane person who will go postal and hurt you. She was so upset, she was crying.”

The NYDN’s sources say that Kim was on the phone with Kanye at some point during the teenager’s rant and Kanye “raced to Kim’s side.” When the kid saw Kanye, he “continued with the slurs. He was in Kanye’s face and wouldn’t stop. He was taunting him.” The Beverly Hills PD are investigating and they’ve said that Kanye is a suspect and a witness and that he left before the police arrived.

    This entire story is bs. Now we hear that Kim was crying? Whatevs.

    • nk868 says:

      and the “source” said “she’s tiny” so you know it’s lucifer’s hg getting her story out

    • Josephine says:

      Right – she was so upset that she followed the kid and brought Kayne to the kid. She sounds calculated, not upset. They’re a sick bunch.

    • idk says:

      I saw footage of her leaving the office, her make-up looked perfect, no puffy eyes, yet she was crying? The Kardashians can not be trusted. Yes, that kid was a racist piece of sh*t, but you can’t just go assaulting people. What if that kid was underage? By the way, “standing and doing nothing” is what Kim does BEST.

      • Liv says:

        If the kid ever said racist slurs…this whole incident screams PR game. And even if the kid said so – there’s no excuse to beat it up. Sure, it’s a shame to call others names and degrade people, but there’s just no excuse to get violent. The Ks are so stupid.

      • idk says:

        @ Liv

        Yes. Also, doesn’t it seem like there is some sort of Kardashian curse…oops I mean Kurse? They ruin the men they are with. Kanye had a bit of bad publicity before dating Kim, but since he’s been with her, his life has become a nightmare. He can not be a happy person, no way.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree, I don’t buy these new versions of the story either. Also, the kid wasn’t FOLLOWING KK. The TMZ video clearly shows that he went into the building before she got in there. Also, how could the kid be “taunting” Kanye, yet Kanye was the one that followed him into his doctor’s office waiting area?

      • Elle Kaye says:

        Yes, let’s keep in mind that there is no proof, other than what Kim states, that this young man yelled racial slurs at her. He can be heard on video saying something about the paps and what she must endure, and telling them to leave her alone, but nothing cruel or viscous. They say he was acting “goofy”…he is young, so there is that factor. Also, no one knows his mental capacity.

        What is known is that Kim has a propensity for telling tales…and that Kanye has a very nasty temper.

    • Fue McCormick says:

      …maybe she didn’t say anything because she’s afraid he’d beat her when they got home?
      There were plenty of photogs there; why didn’t they step in to stop it?
      And why does he always look like he has a stick up his ass?

    • Sarah says:

      I agree completely with this. The first thing I thought when I heard this story was to wonder why on earth Kim would call him about this. Seriously! The guy is already in trouble with the LAPD for beating people up. He has clear and obvious anger management issues. Were I a horrible cynic (cough*cough) I would say that PMK orchestrated this whole thing to get Kanye in more trouble, and maybe even to get Kim away from him – with the baby and an amazingly fat child support check.

    • Delorb says:

      I believe things went down just as Kim says. The kid thought he was taking up for her, she turned on him because she’s black now, I guess and the kid went off. Being the manipulator, she called Kanye. Kanye with all his strikes, lost it and beat up the kid. He’ll probably get some time, leaving Kim alone with his baby and bank account.

      @Sarah, I’ll admit she’s dumb as a post, but a gold-digger is always thinking. So I wouldn’t put it past her to think of something like this on the quick.

    • OGmutha says:

      I’m not advocating violence but empathy. I’m empathetic to Kanye’s situation, I’m not sure I could have restrained myself either if someone was following my partner around and threatening her.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        And had Kanye actually been with her for the insults, little less the threats, I would have been fine with Kanye giving the kids 2 or 3 punches. That is not what happened here. Even if you believe that Kimye version of events, Kanye took the time to get to where she was and then hunt down this guy. I’m sorry but that is just flat out wrong and he had plenty of time to make an adult decision.

      • We Are All Made of Stars says:

        Yes, if this situation is real and happened in the way that is being reported, meaning with racist statements and death threats, team Kanye all the way. It’s pretty ridiculous to suggest that someone not be allowed to defend themselves or their child’s mother from this type of behavior just because they are a jackass most of the time. Kanye might be an asshole, but he also has the right to go to a doctor without being harassed and threatened by racist nutbags if that is really what occurred.

    • gefeylich says:

      Hahahahahaha! “PR stunt” is written all over this. They’ll do anything for attention and even a tiny smidgen of unearned sympathy, won’t they? This whole story is unbelievably shady and transparent. Can’t wait until the staged photos are “leaked.”

      Really, this has the sulphurous handprints of PMK all over it.

  2. RHONYC says:

    f*ck that kid. he got what he deserved. i wish that more racist assholes got dealt with accordingly. :mad:

    • Tapioca says:

      “Violence never really deals with the basic evil of the situation. Violence may murder the murderer, but it doesn’t murder murder. Violence may murder the liar, but it doesn’t murder the lie; it doesn’t establish truth. Violence may even murder the dishonest man, but it doesn’t murder dishonesty. Violence may go to the point of murdering the hater, but it doesn’t murder hate. It may increase hate. It is always a descending spiral leading nowhere. This is the ultimate weakness of violence: It multiplies evil and violence in the universe. It doesn’t solve any problems.”

    • Red32 says:

      A lot depends on if Kim’s version of events is true. There are witnesses that saw him hold a door open for her. There are witnesses that saw him sitting in a dr’s office when Kim & Kanye came in and attacked him. But so far, there are no witnesses or video showing the kid saying what Kim claims.

    • Greenie says:

      Agreed. Not a fan of these people at all but I am sooo Team Kanye on this one.

      • Alexis says:

        I think Kanye is dealing with some rage issues, and imho, probably some overall mental health problems (depression, anxiety, bipolar II, something like that). That doesn’t excuse his actions, but let’s stipulate this. At any rate, Kanye’s response was foreseeable. As Kanye’s partner, Kim should have been sensitive to the way Kanye is, and shielded him from getting involved with the situation by handling it herself (by leaving, calling the cops, talking to the guy herself, however she feels comfortable). This would have avoided a public situation like this which hurts his reputation and could get him in court and in jail. Why would you want to humiliate or even potentially send to jail your daughter’s father? This whole scenario stinks of Kim (and PMK) wanting publicity by any means necessary, which is gross.

        No good guys here. Kanye needs to get himself under control, no excuses for how he’s been conducting himself lately. The racist is a cretin. But somehow I think Kim’s the worst of the three.

      • Sullivan says:

        We’re doing the Team thing with this, too? How about not wanting to be on either team. Let me see, Team Racist or Team Violence. Hmmm….. I pick Team Sanity. This whole story is disheartening.

      • Hootysgram says:

        It all keeps them in the news…main reason…period.

      • Trashaddict says:

        Mabooski – I get your statements about the n-word. I get that any white person even expressing an opinion about it is just perpetuating evil. I don’t use that word. But what is a “white opinion”? Are you assuming that I will think a certain way because of the color of my skin? If you feel insulted by a white person expressing opinions on how they think black people “should” think/behave, is it possible the reverse might be true?

    • Moiselle says:

      Sorry, no. Your attitude just perpetuates an unending cycle of hate and violence. What the young man said is beyond stupid. However, NO ONE should be using the N word. That includes Kayne himself.

      • Jes says:

        I agree completely. As a black woman I am so tired of the “im black I can use it defense” people need to pick up a book and educate themselves as to the meaning of the word. Is that something you would want to refer to your friends and family as? I would hope not!

      • Oh La La says:

        I think that the guy was completely out of order. I also think the situation should not have been handled in the way that it was. However, do not lessen the malice that went into the use of the n word by referencing Kanye’s use of the word. I think black people should choose whether they want to use that word or not.

      • wheezy says:

        Right on.
        These actions from a childish man who drapes himself in the Confederate Flag and sells it as his own merchandise. I guess he isn’t ready to “own” the word like that hideous flag he claims.

      • MrsB says:

        Yeah. I was kinda thinking yesterday that the kid got what he deserved when I thought Kanye just punched him once or twice, but 30 TIMES?!? He could’ve killed the kid. Nobody deserves to die at 18 over words, no matter how horrible those words are.

      • mabooski says:

        White opinions (or any other non-Black opinions) on the n-word are FOREVER IRRELEVANT. I really wish you guys would understand this. DO NOT USE IT. IT IS NOT FOR YOU.

        If you were TRULY the non-racists you claim to be it would not bother you how a group uses a word THEY HAVE RECLAIMED.

        ONE black persons aversion to the n-word doesnt speak for the entire BLACK experience and the relationship that other BLACK PEOPLE have with that word.

        BLACK experience meaning NOT YOU. Your feelings on the word DO NOT MATTER. DO. NOT. MATTER. <—LEARN THIS.

      • vangroovey says:

        Thank you mabooski! Moreover, while I know that violence isn’t the answer — sometimes it happens for a good cause. And in my opinion, this is one of those times. And, to be a tinge bit controversial, I think its damn near impossible for a white person to understand that amount of rage and hurt that word can drudge up in someone of color — and sometimes unexpectedly. Oh course people will say sticks and stones…..but unless you’ve really dealt with it, you really have no idea. And while a lot of white folks like to throw around cries of “reverse racism!” (especially since Pres. Obama was elected!), it’s simply not the same. (Heck, there’s actually no such thing as “reverse racism”.) Besides, when people of color calmly try to say, “hey look, that’s racism.” We’re shouted down for playing the “race card” — but when one of us finally has enough and punches someone the eff out (not kill, but beat up), then we’re too violent. It’s a no-win situation.

      • jensies says:


        So I am white, and I do not use that word and I correct/admonish other white people that do when they say it around me.

        I understand that that word has been reclaimed by some people in the African-American community, but I also know that there are others in the community that still do not like that word, and have not been part of the reclamation. So this isn’t a universally accepted thing. Just like women in the feminist community who have reclaimed “bitch.” Some are on board with that, others are not.

        I think this is confusing for some people who don’t understand the politics and complexity of all of it, and who, the only time they hear it is in music that they really like. They may also have gotten mixed messages on its use from African American friends, since there’s a variety of opinions on the subject. So I’m not saying you’re wrong at all, just that it’s a difficult issue and that some people may be using it out of confusion and ignorance of the issues, not malice.

        That said, some people are just f-ing racist and terrible. No idea if this kid was one of those, because I haven’t watched the tapes and witness reports seem pretty mixed. If he was, he deserved a very harsh talking-to from Kim or Kanye, but he didn’t deserve assault.

      • Marigold says:

        @Vangroovey-sometimes violence happens for a good cause?

        What was the good cause here?

        You think that kid will never use a racial slur again? You think that kid won’t ever say misogynistic sh*t again? If anything, he walked away with those ignorant feelings inflated in his head.

        And what will Kanye get? Arrested for assault and battery? Fined? Far fetched, but possibly sent to jail? A criminal record?

        What has he taught his daughter? When you become a parent, you should be thinking about what your actions mean for your child every time you make an important decision. Kanye is too selfish for that. His satisfaction from kicking that kid’s ass was more important than what the consequences for those actions might mean for his daughter. Shame on him.

        Keep it real-he has got serious rage issues. It doesn’t take racist or misogynistic slurs to make him angry and violent so let’s not pretend for even a moment that anything positive will come out of this. He was Kanye acting like Kanye. Kanye thinking he is above the law, above following the rules of acting like an adult, above putting his child first, above being punished, I’m sure. He’s an entitled ass.

      • vangroovey says:

        Re: What was the good cause here?

        Racism isn’t just some minor annoyance — it’s a pervasive, life-altering imbalance of institutionalized proportions. White privilege is no joke — and it hurts so many people on multiple levels. Racism is not just “Oh, my feelings are hurt because someone called me a mean name.” And for that reason, in my opinion, sometimes racists just need to get knocked the f*ck out. That’s the good reason. It’s interesting — so many people don’t have a problem going to war when one group is subjugating another somewhere else in the world — but when a black person physically fights back against racism, its an anathema.

      • wheezy says:

        I’m shocked at all of the proponents for Kanye’s behavior. Honestly. I’ve been called the N word to my face by white people who meant it in the worst way possible, and my thoughts were NEVER to act on violence or contact someone on my behalf. Kim is the real scum in this scenario- whichever version you choose. Another example of the media/reality tv putting black people on display for entertainment. She made him look like a FOOL and he is STUPID enough to buy into it (and her) and act on it. They deserve one another, truly.
        No sort of violence is acceptable, especially not for the story ad it’s been told.

      • gg says:

        mabooski – not all black opinions are the same on the matter, not all white opinions are the same on the matter, as shown clearly on this board. All opinions of all people matter. You sound quite delusional in your mandate that “all non-white” people need to learn to not have an opinion. Life and the world never work that way hon.

        And violence never solved anything. Violence is only for the ignorant who don’t understand how to speak and work it out, or pull back and just go away when the time is right. They all came off like bratty little children in a playground fight.

      • vangroovey says:

        “And violence never solved anything.” — Not true.

      • Jaxx says:

        I agree completely the word should not be spoken by ANYONE, no matter what color. I threatened my daughter with soap the first time I heard it come out of her mouth. She pulled ear buds out of her ears and said Mom, I’m singing a song. How am I supposed to teach her it is a filthy hateful word when rap songs are full of it? I have never agreed you get to say it if you’re black, but even if I did, I ask WHY would you want to use it? Seems to me the word just needs to die, period.

      • Hakura says:

        @Mabooski – I find your comment quite offensive. I’m a white woman, so I have no right to express an opinion about a word & it’s use? *That* is racist in it’s *own* right. (My opinion doesn’t matter, simply bc I’m not black? But if I were to reverse our positions, I’d be immediately jumped on & declared a racist. It’s a 2-way street). I’d never *ever* use that word, bc of it’s hateful meaning & history. I dont think it should be used by anyone. That is an opinion I have every right to express, no matter what race.

        You think there should be ‘rules’ that are applied differently, based on what *race* you are (or what color you *appear* to be)? We’ve ALL seen how well *that* works.

        I could care less what your opinion is, but would never be so arrogant & tell you it ‘doesn’t matter’ bc of your race.

      • MmeRain says:

        @Hakura – I see what Mabooski mean and I agree to a certain extent. I am a French black woman who grew up in a place where I was lucky not to be victim of racism. Even until now, (almost 22), I did not experienced racism (maybe I did at some point and just did not realise it) and sometimes, some of my “white” friends did expressed their feeling about the n word. Good for them, I mean, I won’t jump on them telling them they shouldn’t talk about it because everybody have a opinion, everybody has the right to express it (even if some people should just shut it) but at the end, their opinion isn’t relevant on the matter. Because it’s just is not.

        I have a friend, not a long time ago, who told me the same, how he didn’t like black people using this word, and I explained to him that WE can use it because WE know what we mean with this word. My mom, sometimes uses the french version of the word and she’s using it to define herself proudly and joking at the same time (I believe the french version is more tame) and I never in my life had to rethink whether it was good or not to use the word. I know it’s a bad word, I’m not using it, my mom is not using it on a daily basis or with just anybody. but what we choose to do with the word is our choice and our choice only. Your opinion does not matter (it’s a general “your” lol and i’m not saying you should not express it, because you should be able to if you want)

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      Even if someone is making racist comments, this is not the way to deal with the situation. The violence is just as bad as the racism.

      • Leila in wunderland says:

        Sorry. Even if I can (begrudgingly) agree that beating someone up isn’t the best way to respond to racism, I’ll never see beating someone up as a response to such disgusting bigotry as just as bad as the bigotry. To me people who can dehumanize others based on their race (yes, I see the use of such slurs as attempts to dehumanize people) are at fault if their is a negative reaction.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Leila, I completely disagree. Violence is also a way to dehumanize a person. Violence and Bigotry are BOTH awful things. There is no winner in that comparison.

        I am not defending the guy, I think racism is a completely horrible awful thing. But I am shocked that you would say that spewing awful words is a worse thing than beating someone severely.

      • MavenTheFirst says:


        So the guy asked for it, right? And anyone who throws bigoted words at another is asking for it? And deserves what they get?

      • Leila in wunderland says:

        @Maventhefirst: Bigotry itself promotes violence, or at the very least desensitizes people to violence against whole people based on their race, gender, sexuality, or ethnicity. Violence can sometimes beget violence. It’s not all the guy’s fault- Kim and Kanye could have used better judgment, but it is partially this guy’s fault. If he were an old man, I would feel sorry for him. But this is a guy born in the same decade as I was- we know the seriousness of racism. He’s not from the 1940′s.

    • MCraw says:

      Agreed. Honestly, sometimes jackasses need to get their ass kicked to get the message their behavior is wrong. Can’t spank bad kids without uproar. Can’t criticize ANYONE for bad habits/behavior for fear of being labeled some kind of -ism. He didn’t murder the kid. I want Kanye to whoop Justin Bieber now.

      • Jes says:

        This is backwards thinking. I’m going to treat someone poorly to show that they are treating me poorly!? Hello! What does that solve.

      • Janie says:

        I know I was spanked a few times and after I did not want to do what I had done again, because obviously, THAT HURT.

        Agreed. Not entirely the same thing, but the same vibe. Sometimes jackasses need to get their ass kicked – Hey, maybe don’t do that again.

      • Josephine says:

        It doesn’t send the message that their behavior is wrong. It sends the message that the other guy is bigger. Study after study shows that hitting kids tells them that their parents are powerful and willing to hurt them. In this case, I seriously doubt that a kid with racist attitudes is all of a sudden going to see the light because Kayne beat him down. I’m sure he’ll come away with terrific, enlightening feelings about black people.

    • Jessiebes says:

      Well I agree that racism is awful, but violence won’t stop it, it will only increase the hate.

      • Nina W says:

        Not only that, if this kid was already prejudiced against black people, how will he feel about them now that his face has been beat in by one? Violence only begets more violence and breeds hatred and resentment. Kanye is supposedly a grown man but is so immature he has to seek out this kid and use his fists? Dude has some serious problems.

    • Addie says:

      and that’s (above) the reaction Kanye is counting on. This whole story stinks.

    • Violet says:

      Two wrongs never make a right. And that’s even assuming the kid did utter racist statements to “tiny” Kim, which a) I am not convinced is true; and b) wouldn’t justify Kayne’s actions in any case.

      (A far more plausible scenario is that the kid called Kim fat and she griped to Kanye about it and he decided to use the situation to blow off some steam, using lies to excuse the assault.)

      Phoning up your BF to come beat up a random teenage boy for having a foul mouth is pretty much as low as it gets.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      RHONYC, keep in mind there is NO EVIDENCE that the kid said anything racist or threatening. You only have the word of the Kardashian Klan, which is known to lie.

    • Jem says:

      I agree: sometimes ‘upside the head’ is the ONLY way to straighten some people out… That said, I’m not convinced this whole situation isn’t just some staged f*ckery. I mean, there WAS a Kardashian and a bunch of Paps involved, soooooo… I’m guessing at some point the “racist” kid will come clean and admit he was paid to act a part and stir things up. Wouldn’t surprise me at all.

    • Janet says:

      What Rho said. That punk got exactly what was coming to him.

    • oh dear says:

      just wondering, would it still have been ok if that “racist kid” had been female?

      when it comes to racist people i think of them as uneducated. they obviously lack in some developmental departments and are not very smart. would i go out into the world and hit people for being uneducated and stupid? no, because that would make me just as bad.

      sorry, but i really dont agree with violence as a response to ignorance/stupidity.

      i also find it rather sexist that its ok for a man to get beaten up (i.e. this kid and the photographer) but it would be an outrage if this had been a woman (edit: as seen with chris brown/rihanna).

    • MCraw says:

      I do agree that whatever happened, Kim should have known not to have Kanye get involved. I would’ve protected my child’s father from his own rage. No matter how justified his anger.

    • Yuanita pita says:

      Do you really believe anything Kim Kartrashian or nutjob Kanye say? If a person insults you you do not try to beat them to death. You will be the one going to prison. You can call the police if you are scared. There is some weird PR thing going on here and because of the supposed racism (I say supposed bc I think the whole thing is a lie) you are falling for it. Saying racism is like raising a red flag to a bull to some people. Are you enjoying getting speared, Bull?

    • holly hobby says:

      She could have called the police and say he was harrassing her. I do not care for the beat down. Kanye must think he’s tough – beating a kid. In legal circles, it’s called assault – no matter what the kid said.

      I don’t care for the kid’s potty mouth but once Kanye levels his fists to the kid, he is automatically in the wrong.

      She is complicit because she stood over and watched (probably happy about it too since she didn’t intervene).

      Since there were witnesses in the dr’s office, we’ll get the real story soon.

    • Tazina says:

      Unfortunately the world is full of these kind of racist jerks. I hope Kanye gets off but in future as hard as it may be he just has to learn to walk away. I hope Kanye doesn’t pay the brat off….which is exactly what he is looking for and why he started the whole thing in the first place – to get himself a huge out of court settlement by baiting and instigating a wealthy celebrity to attack him. It was all pre-planned by this greedy opportunist.

  3. Cristina says:

    OK, there are too many versions of this story. First, they said Kim started screaming “We have it all on camera!”. Now, she was silently watching Kanye beating the life out of that guy.
    Also, there are several stories about the location. Some tabloids say it was a medical building, others that it was a furniture shop or something like that.
    Another fishy thing: one story says she called Kanye to let him know the guy assaulted her. Another story claims she was on the phone with him when the guy started yelling all that stuff at her.
    I have a feeling we’ll never really know the truth about what went on.

  4. Red32 says:

    I believe the eyewitnesses over Kim anyday.

  5. Sam says:

    So much of this story seems…off, to me. Does Kim travel without bodyguards? This seems like the type of situation in which a bodyguard would be expected to handle it. How was this kid allowed to get so aggressive with her for so long? I get that she was in an office, but don’t many celebs take a bodyguard literally almost everywhere? I’ve seen security in pics with her before, but is there a reason why they wouldn’t have been here now? Even if Kim didn’t have any, I’m be shocked if Kanye travels without security. Why did Kanye have to handle it? It seems like such an odd situation.

  6. qtpi says:

    With his ragey history I can’t believe she would say a peep to him. Ignore the stupid teenager. And if you are that scared travel with a bodyguard. Lord knows you have the money!

    Seriously though. Does she want Kanye to end up in prison? (Not that he would in Cali I guess…) She KNEW he would come in and beat the kid up.

    People say a lot of offensive things. Doesn’t give you the right to physically assault them.

  7. Shauna says:

    Not a popular opinion but this ahole is 18, no matter how annoying he is there’s no reason to hit him. I saw the video, it appeared to be that the guy has some severe mental issues.

    Kanye and Kim should have the life experience to know better. Turn around, go back to your car and call the police. Don’t hit him, act like the adults.

    • Leila in wunderland says:

      He’s 18. He should have acted like an adult by not being a bigot.

      • Seriously says:

        18 doesn’t magically make a person an adult, as nice as that would be. Yes, technically they’re considered an “adult” by society, but there’s a huge number of immature 18 year olds. The brain isn’t even finished developing until age 25.

        Ideally he should’ve known better and behaved differently. I agree with Shauna, Kanye and Kim were the ones who really didn’t act like mature adults. They’re in their 30′s, and they decided to lower themselves to this guy’s level. I’m not giving the boy a pass, what he did was wrong and terrible, and there’s no way to justify it. But saying he has passed a magical threshold into adulthood doesn’t really make the argument. There are mature young people, and immature young people and obviously this person didn’t fall into that category.

        I’m firmly in the no violence camp as well. I think violence is sometimes a last resort, but not in situations like this. Not even bothering to try and talk to the guy or make some kind of interaction to resolve the situation just shows that all Kanye wanted was to beat the crap out of him. He didn’t care about trying to explain to the person why what he said was so wrong (I’m sure the guy knows this, but my sister is a middle schooler and apparently that word is tossed around constantly, it bothers me to no end). Without even trying to resolve the situation Kanye not made any difference. He’s just given the guy a perfect excuse to try and sue the pants off of them both.

      • Colu says:

        Kayne won’t go to prison. Not even with the pap incident also in play. He’ll end up paying for it and probably thinking it’s the best money he ever spent.

        Side note: the no bodyguards thing is totally weird. I can’t think of a single reason Kim shouldn’t have had a bodyguard there.

        Edit: sorry, wrong comment group.

      • Leila in wunderland says:

        At 18 a person’s brain is not fully developed, but they’re old enough to be held accountable for their own decisions and face the consequences of them. There are immature 18-year-olds who know better than to say stuff like that. There are even 12-year-olds who know better.

      • MavenTheFirst says:

        And will Kanye willingly face the consequences of his decision to assault the guy, or is vigilante justice okay now?

  8. Ruyana says:

    I hope Kanye goes to jail. Yes, the kid was WAY out of line (If there is any truth to what he allegedly said). That does not justify a grown ass man hunting him down and trying his best to beat the kid to death.

    I doubt that he threatened to kill Kim. I don’t believe much that she says.

    Kimye – two oxygen thieves bonded as one.

    • Seriously says:

      I completely agree! The appropriate thing to do would have been to talk to the guy and get him to apologize. If he continued to behave horrifically and followed them some more (theoretically) they could have called the police because he would be harassing them.

      They made a bad situation worse, and just because the guy was an a**hole doesn’t mean Kanye should be allowed to try and break his face without consequence.

  9. Luca26 says:

    Personally I don’t think she was scared or dissociated . She called Kanye and she stood by and let it happen (no calls to the police bodyguards etc) because she wanted Kanye to beat his ass. I think she got satisfaction out of seeing her man take revenge on that kid who sounds deranged. While Kanye is an adult and responsible for his actions I believe Kim should shoulder a lot of blame for instigating Kanye to defend her.

    • lucy2 says:

      Agree – if she were really feeling threatened, she’d have called security or the police. Instead some guy insulted her, so instead of walking away or contacting security, she called her boyfriend to come track him down and beat him up.

      The whole story is so full of conflicting info and weirdness, it all still sounds fake to me.

  10. Jordan says:

    Dickye should be in jail and I hope the kid presses charges

  11. Tapioca says:

    I do not believe for a second the guy said “I bet I could beat you”, unless he finished that sentence with a “…in a game of being able to move my face”.

    And if we’re talking about insane people with a tendency to go postal…

    • Bgirl81 says:

      Oh no you di’int!! Seriously, none of this story makes any sense. If this kid actually said that truly awful stuff, I can see why Kanye would go ballistic. However, I have to agree with the “Where were all the bodyguards? ” comments. Heaven help the heifer if it turns out she made it up!

      • Chrissy says:

        But there was no reason for Kanye to even get involved! He only acted on what he was told by Kim, heaven knows what that was. He’s a man in his late thirties and should have been adult enough to either tell Kim to deal with it herself (unlikely, i know) or clarify what happened with the kid and get him to apologize! Only a coward would have used violence right off the bat!!! Kim made him look like an idiot!!!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      LOL!!!! Tapioca, that was brilliant.

  12. Sayrah says:

    Yikes. Has anyone ever seen that video of Bjork freaking out on a Japanese reporter outside the airport? That’s the image I got in my head reading this.

  13. Leah says:

    I am sorry but this site is starting to annoy me in the way its turning into a Kim apologist site.
    There was a story similar to this about Lindsay Lohan and no one excused her behaviour when verbal abuse turned into a violent attack.
    Whatsmore Kanye wasn’t there, and Kim called him and got him to come down. I think this is as much her fault as any. She knows he has rage issues and he has already been on the Das radar for assualt. Why would she call him? There are other ways to deal with racism them punching someone repeatedly. Imagine if every person that is subjected to racism, sexism or homophobia should sick their significant other on the perpetrator.These people are so trashy and uneducated.

  14. blue marie says:

    Umm what? I thought the story yesterday that the kid was holding the door open for Kim to get away from the paps, he called them the n-word she said told him “not cool” and then he started calling her names? Meh, regardless the kid is a racist little a-hole but, wailing on the kid as if he were a speed bag isn’t cool either. Kayne will be sued, and if all of this is true, he’ll lose and the pay out will be huge..

  15. dorothy says:

    So she stood and watched Kanye pummel the kid, saying nothing? Then just nonchalantly went to another meeting? Wow. I guess Kanye’s thuggish ways have rubbed off on her. They’re perfect for each other.

    • idk says:

      No, I think Kim has always been a robot with no real feelings. Unless she breaks a nail, or loses her diamond earring, then it’s full waterworks.

      Also, on her way out of the building a photog said to her “I heard Kanye beat up that dude” and she replied “stop spreading rumors”. So she basically tried to deny it happened even though there are many witnesses.

  16. Nicolette says:

    She stood there silently like the controlled robot she is.

  17. Sisi says:

    odd that Kim asks for police ecort ALL THE TIME but when she get’s stalked, yelled at and threatened she calls… Kanye…? So yeah I don’t believe it

  18. mzizkrizten says:

    Eye witness testimonies are flimsy and people are prone to exageration which I hope is the case here because 30 blows is so excessive and indicitive of a real rage problem and I fear for Kim. She is obviously easily manipulated by him, that fucking purse is a clue, LOL. I bet he is very domineering to a scary degree. Poor North.

  19. Nev says:

    There are many holes and no logic in this story.

    • Maureen says:

      You know, you’re right. It seems almost pointless to comment on any celebrity story like this within the first 24 hours because the very next day, and in the days/weeks to follow, the details can/will change dramatically. I will be really interested to see where this story leads. I don’t usually follow celeb stories beyond the initial reports but because I think Kanye West is a dangerous and nasty person, I’m interested in the details of this one.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Agree. I was sort of defending Kanye yesterday because I thought he was defending his wife. I didn’t know he went and found the guy, who looks like a shrimp, and started hitting him and continued to hit him when the guy didn’t even defend himself. I don’t know if we will ever get the whole story.

  20. Samtha says:

    You can’t physically attack someone because they’re an asshole. I’m sorry, but I can’t believe how many people think it’s okay to respond with this kind of violence.

    If he were a regular man in any other city in the world, he would be in jail right now.

  21. Jessiebes says:

    Thirty blows are a lot of blows, people have died of less. Why did she call Kanye, when she could have called the police, unless she doesn’t trust them of course.

    Even if hitting this kid was out of self defence (which is a stretch at best) that would only, maybe, excuse the first direct hit. This was out of control and it will take a savvy lawyer to get Kanye of the hook.

    Which brings me to my next question, why weren’t Kanye and the kid arrested at the time?

  22. nicegirl says:

    I think the victim can file a lawsuit against BOTH of them, Kanye for doling out the beating and Kim for either or both instigating and not intervening, if this version of events is anywhere near accurate. I bet several attorneys are seeking out to sign this kid as a client, pronto.

    I cannot imagine this going well for Kanye, re: isn’t he already on some kind of probation for another violent altercation, I think with a paparazzo?

  23. Hatetheletterak says:

    When is this thug going to get prosecuted for putting his hands on people? He needs to spend some time in prison and let someone bring him down a few notches. And Kim is “tiny”? Puh-leaze.

  24. Maureen says:

    If that really did happen to Kim as claimed — that she was followed, screamed at, threatened, and felt afraid — then I’m sorry for that. No one deserves that. No one. However, no one deserves to be beaten to within an inch of their lives for name-calling. Sorry, name-calling does NOT equate to beating. Kanye could have killed that guy. More than 30 blows … and that was only because someone PULLED him off the guy? Because Kim was insulted and frightened? She should have gone straight to security or told the receptionist to call security ASAP. There was help for her in that building immediately within reach. Instead she took the time to call her thug boyfriend who has anger management issues.

    You know, just yesterday there was a post about Sean Penn and his 65 guns, and lots of comments against gun violence and lots of comments about gun control, and here we have a post about a guy nearly beating someone to death. How many people die every year in America at the hands of someone else who used their own body as a deadly weapon? When you hit someone you have NO idea what the consequences will be. It is a very, very dangerous thing to raise your hand against another living being. Even if you only slap a person, you do not know if that person will simply fall down and whack their head on a piece of furniture and die of brain aneurysm. And beating someone multiple times with your fists while they lay curled in a ball?? You can destroy their kidney. You can cause them brain damage. You can bust a disc in their spine, rendering them paralyzed.

    My point: Kanye West is as dangerous as a loaded rifle, if not more so. He should go to prison for what he did to that young man.

    • Lee says:


      I read an article the other day about a man who shoved his girlfriend. She stumbled and hit her head on the corner of a cabinet and died from the injury.

      All it takes is one time.

      that being said – If the story is true and the kid was being verbally abusive, throwing out racist and derogatory terms, then yes action should have been taken. By the police. Kanye has proven time and again that he is not able to control his rage. Kim knew how this would escalate.

      • Maureen says:

        Not only is he unable to control his anger, I also believe he WANTS to fight. I think he would use almost any excuse to fight. That’s why this story is believable to me — at least to a degree. And I think Kim is a self-loather with ZERO self-esteem who needs the validation of men to make herself feel worthy. If things went down as TMZ claims they did — that Kim called Kanye in for a beating and that she stood silently and watched — it’s because she was getting off on it. If Kanye would beat a man for calling her names then that validates her. She obviously can’t get validation from him in any other way.

    • Violet says:

      This. I’m beyond shocked that anyone would defend or justify Kayne’s actions. He’s a rage monster who should be behind bars.

      • Kate says:

        It is never ok to physically assault someone because of something he or she says.

        Put yourself in that position. Yes, being a racist is horrible, but lets say, perhaps, that you were to state your opinion about a controversial topic. Is it okay for someone who disagrees with you to hunt you down and punch you thirty times because he or she thinks you’re an a**hole and that you deserve it??!! The answer is no.

      • Maureen says:

        All the media had to do was report that the teenager used the “n word” and the game was on. That’s all it takes. Report that racial slurs were used.

        We used to teach our young that “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” and that we should ignore name-callers rather than “stoop to their level”, and that we should “rise above it”. But in the past two decades or so we have become inculcated on a cultural/societal level with the idea that using certain words is tantamount to a violent act. Therefore, it’s no wonder so many people feel the teen “got what he deserved”. If you have been taught to believe that the “n word” (or any slur like that) is tantamount to a violent act then you certainly would applaud a person for beating someone over using that word.

      • Leila in wunderland says:

        @Maureen: I think there’s valid reason for people to see such blatant, deliberate bigotry as tantamount to hitting someone or beating someone up. In my opinion, and a lot of peoples’, to say things like that is to condone every act of discrimination and violence that the group of people has faced- or if the person’s not necessarily condoning it, they’re at least trivializing it. When ‘name-calling’ (a bit of an oversimplification of the issue. It’s not like this was just some little kid calling another kid ugly on the playground) goes into territories like this, I don’t think it’s realistic to expect every single person to rise above it. There’s just so much history behind this. We know that violence is not the best or legal way to respond to racism or misogyny, but when someone acts this way, it’s a risk they take, and not everyone will see him as an innocent victim. He didn’t just dehumanize the adults he insulted, if this story is true, he dehumanized their baby, Kanye’s family, an entire race of people, and a sex. A lot of us would have been able to refrain from reacting in that situation, but we all know that not everybody on this planet will tolerate themselves and their family members being spoken of in that way without retaliating in some aggressive way.

      • Nina W says:

        As a victim of violence I am appalled by how many people believe Kanye’s behavior was justified because of what the teen said. I don’t care what he said Kanye did not have to use his fists, it’s illegal and solves nothing. Violence only creates problems. Kanye escalated this unnecessarily. He needs help, he is out of control.

    • littlestar says:

      Very good point, Maureen, and I agree with you. What the kid supposedly said is horrid, but that does not give Kanye the right to beat him. And I definitely do not agree with the posters above who all agreed that anyone saying something racist deserves to get beaten. How exactly does that help to stop racism?

    • MavenTheFirst says:

      I’m shocked that there were THIRTY punches! That is a massive, deliberate assault. From someone who wasn’t even there originally and chose to get physical. What excuse is there for this? I can’t believe anyone would excuse this, but they do.

      Agreed. Kanye may not have a gun, but he has his fists and is clearly becoming very, very dangerous. It’s really scary. He should have the book thrown at him. I bet he buys the kid off, though.

  25. pantalones en fuego says:

    Has anyone seen pictures of the kid? I mean if he was really hit 30 times he should have at least a bruise or something. This whole thing is odd.

  26. Kim1 says:

    I wonder if Kanye has ever beaten her. From my experience with relatives the guys who are violent in public are also violent in private. I have no doubt he is verbally abusive.

    • Luca26 says:

      Usually battered women will do anything to stop the violence instead of instigating more and sicing them on other people. I’m not saying it isn’t happening because you never know but she definitely isn’t a victim in this case because she asked Kanye to come to the scene.

      • Kim1 says:

        She didn’t stop the violence. I have stepped in between a cousin and also a friend when I saw them pummeling someone. There is no way in hell I am going to let my boyfriend hit someone dozens of times without pulling him away.So maybe she has seen him become violent before. Also I read she didnt call him he called her and he overheard the verbal attack .Funny how these Kardashians tweet everything yet they wont say what happened. Did she file a police report about death threat?

  27. JudyK says:

    Kanye’s always looking for a fight walking through life looking like a storm cloud with a perpetual chip on his shoulder, thinking his $$$ will absolve him of any and all bullying and violence, and Kim is always looking for a photo or PR opportunity.

  28. bns says:

    I knew this post would be filled with stupid comments.

  29. Leila in wunderland says:

    He brought it on himself. No sympathy here.

    • Leila in wunderland says:

      If he really did punch the guy several times, then I guess he overdid it. But I can’t believe that people are using his age as an excuse. He’s not some little child who wasn’t old enough to know better. He’s 18- that’s an adult. I bet he’ll never say things like that to someone again.

      If age is not an excuse for Justin Bieber, who’s 19 and who’s behavior has so far been less offensive than this guy’s, then age is not an excuse for him either. I hope his reputation is ruined after this.

  30. LW says:

    The whole story sounds like lies, lol. And I find it hilarious that Kanye opened a can of whoop ass on a skinny 18 year old kid for calling Kim the same names she gets called every day of her life (not that I condone racism in any form, of course). Does anyone really think he would try that with someone bigger than him? 30 punches? Yea, righhhhhht.

  31. Brown Eyed Girl says:

    “Kanye got out of the building and Kim went to another office for a meeting.”

    that tells me all i need to know about this case. they had no reason to be in the chiropractor’s office and the situation had already been diffused by the time Kanye had got there as the kid was sitting in a chair and Kim had a meeting in ANOTHER OFFICE.

    Kanye stalked this kid out for a beat down. He deserves jail time
    (except haha its california. nothing will happen of course)

  32. Amanda_M87 says:

    I hate racism as much as anyone else, but what if the young man ( 18 is not a child) is mentally challenged or autistic? We really don’t know the whole story so I’m reserving judgement for now.

  33. Sammi says:

    While it may be wrong. No I’ll correct that… It was definitely out of line what that kid said. There is no excuse for racism anymore, please. Haven’t we evolved yet?! Yet it wasn’t illegal. Unless he threatened violence. Which we didn’t hear in the original story.
    What Kanye did was illegal. Even if it was just ONE unprovoked punch. But 30? Kinda find that slightly exaggerated too maybe.
    If I had a new baby at home I most certainly wouldn’t want my daughters father making any risky moves that could detract from his time spent parenting.
    Oh who am I kidding? It’s a celeb! Slap I the wrist. Other assault charge spending? Meh no probs!

  34. Sammi says:

    I meant other assault charges pending

  35. Frenzy says:

    I’m still waiting for the proof like maybe photos of the teen’s beat up face. If Kanye punched this kid 30 times his hand would at least look swollen( I’ve seen the pics and it was not) If this is really true I’m sure Kim will instragram it like maybe a photo of North holding her dad’s sore hand! Kim threw a fake wedding right?! Anything for attention!

  36. Green Is Good says:

    Where’s the video? Or pics? The Pappz were all over the place.

  37. Jayna says:

    If it’s even true, hitting a teenager 30 times who is curled up in a ball doesn’t scream hero to me. I can see walking in and slugging him a couple of times and saying, maybe you will think the next time you threaten and harrass a woman, you coward. I don’t understand why Kim didn’t call the police. I would have if I was being followed and harrassed like that. She is always recording everything with her selfies. I would have videotaped him also.

  38. lovegossipbutnotL&E says:

    IF Kanye had seen it, and he truly threatened Kim, then maybe, just maybe I could seehin getting that mad. But for him to get a phone call and then come in and beat him up because Kim “said so”? I don’t think so. As far as her just watching silently? I think she called him and did stand there quietly. With a smirk. She knew EXACTLY what Kanye would do! She wanted him to do it! I can see her face in my mind while it all went down. Maybe he deserved it if it wasn’t something that happened AFTER the situation had stopped and he was sitting in a chair in an office. She just went to a meeting after? If someone threatened my life, I would of called the police before my boyfriend and certainly would of cancelled an appt after seeing that! :-(

  39. Cora says:

    I’m really shocked at the number of people who think violence is an appropriate response to offensive speech. :(

  40. Dani says:

    So after watching her scum bag fiance beat a kid, she lets him around her infant? I don’t care what he said, you do not put your hands on anyone. With his rage issues, Kanye could snap on her or the baby one day.

  41. The Original G says:

    I’ll wait for the whole story to actually come out.

  42. pnichols says:

    we’ve ALL done things acting out of anger at one point or another. I’m not saying I agree with his actions, but I can’t give a definitive “no” I may not have acted out on some level. I don’t know what the guys point was yelling at her, but at the end of the day Kim should have just walked into the office and ignored him. A call to the police would have been sufficient considering the circumstances. Nothing they couldn’t have handled properly. With that said, sometimes people just snap- maybe this kid caught Kanye on the wrong day. Only Kanye can explain his reaction and will have to deal with the consequences of it.

  43. Mingy says:

    ‘N*gger lover’ is such a disgusting slur, I can’t believe I’ve read it so many times since this story broke..Skeeves me because comments like that have been thrown at me. Even still, it does not excuse Kanye’s behavior one bit, and it sickens me to read that Kim just stood there chilling while this was going down. Kanye seems like he’s just waiting for a chance to go ape-shit on someone. He deserves jail time. And if he’s known for raging like this, why on earth would she call him! She must want him to get arrested.

    If this is a stunt (which I really think it is) I hope it backfires big time. God forbid she gets no attention for one day, what are they going to do for attention on Oscar weekend?!!?!

  44. Palermo says:

    On another site I read that a witness said Kim SMILED the entire time Kanye was hitting this guy. She’s sicker than he is

  45. Kim1 says:

    I just read the part where Kim went to a meeting after this altercation and Ye left.

  46. homegrrrral says:

    She could have filmed the kid and put it on you tube to garner sympathy. Then file a police report…I secretly Love that Kanye hurt this kid. Let that become what people can expect. I know violence begets violence, and I’ve never spanked my own child. But 18 is a.budding adult, and maybe this pos will shut it in the future. That’s secretly, but logically, this 18yr old may have turrets or some disorder, so what kk and k did was illegal and imprudent.

  47. vava says:

    Kanye needs to get himself under control. These assaults are out of line, and he should suffer the consequences. If I beat some kid up, they’d haul my ass off to jail – even if the kid provoked the situation with his verbal b.s. Violence is never the answer.

    And if I were Kim, I would question being in a relationship with a violent man. Someday he may turn on her after the lust subsides (and it will, mark my words.).

  48. vvvoid says:

    It is kind of ridiculous to me that there are so many people up in arms over Kanye beating up a racist douchebag. I don’t like Kanye either but damn.

    • littlestar says:

      Are you kidding? How is it okay for someone to physically assault another person because of what they said??? Kim and Kanye could have gone straight to the police, especially if the idiot kid was threatening her, and THAT would have caused more damage than hitting him. I am not condoning what the kid said, but it is NOT okay to hurt another person.

    • Dawn says:

      Wrong. What Kanye did as a supposedly grown ass man is totally wrong. He was NOT there to hear what the kid said and more than that he doesn’t have a very nice mouth himself and has thrown plenty of racist crap around. Does that mean I get to walk up to his tiny butt and kick it and punch him? I don’t think so. So if Justin Timberlake started beating on some random black kid for calling Jessica racist names would you feel the same way? There are always two sides to every story and so far we have heard only the side of known liars. We shall see what the truth is.

  49. quinn says:

    The Kardashians are KNOWN liars…where is there ANY evidence that any racial remarks were made???? Just because racial issues are a hot button does NOT make this kid guilty. SHOW ME THE RECEIPTS, Kim…

    As well, we live in a society where violence is NEVER acceptable unless you are defending yourself or your family. And, sticks and stones and all that…you can choose to ignore words. If you are fearful for your bodily safety, CALL THE COPS and leave the premises…don’t go in whopping ass like Dirty Harry.

    I have no clue why ANYONE would believe anything these people say…show us a video of this supposed frightening diatribe. Even then, I will wonder if the kid got paid to do it. This family is a morally corrupt mess.

  50. atorontogal says:

    I don’t know what’s worse. The alleged things this boy said. Or the people on here condoning the beating.

  51. trollonthelosse says:

    I thought Kresus wanted to be quiet for the next 6 months. If she has everything recorded like she said, why call Kresus and get him in more trouble? There was no honor to defend left in her anyway, so yeah.. publicity to make people believe how “her man got her back”. that’s classless. If someone was to rant racist comments on me and my boyfriend was in the car waiting i would have the other people present as witness, get to my appointment and then get a lawyer. Way to go to be a role model and an “inspiration’, Kim

  52. Bea says:

    Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. If these people’s Botox-ed, collagen stuffed lips are attempting to move, they are lying.

  53. St says:

    I don’t understand. So Kanye walks into the building, punches person few times and then leaves, right? There were witnesses to it. Why he is not arrested? And then Kim files police report on the person that was beaten up by Kanye? Bringing race card? If that wasn’t caught on camera then how we know that this is true at all? Kim is a famous liar.

    So it means that any strong man can just walk into Kanye, punch him few times, say that Kanye called his wife “white monkey” and then his wife will file police report on Kanye, saying that he threatened to kill her? And her husband will be totally forgiven and won’t be charged in anything? Great idea. Will it work with Beiber too? Like some black man can just beat him up on the street and then bring race card and say that Justin called his wife N word? Something tells me that it will not work and that man would be arrested, you know.

    So again – why Kanye was not arrested five minutes after he beat up random person? Also – can you imagine if that would be white celebrity? Some white famous actor or musician would come and beat up random black kid? Internet and media would explode and turn this into huge racism scandal. And would call that actor crazy hateful racist who hates black people. But somehow it’s totally fine when powerful black celebrity beats up ordinary white kid…. No one sees here racism…

    And again we don’t know what kid said. We didn’t hear his story, there are no evidence that he said something at ll. Only words of two known celebrity liars. If he really did said something like that then it’s still illegal to punch him for it. And Kanye should be arrested.

    • Hot Farts says:

      My comment was the same. There is no proof of what the kid said. The reason why he was not arrested on the spot is because he and Kim fled from the cops like little pussys. I am sure there will be a booking because of the nature of the crime and he will post bail immediately. I am sure his attorney has the bailbondsman ready and is talking to the cops now about how he will turn himself in. He has an attorney for the one he plead no contest to and the one that is an open case now

    I don’t believe a word coming out Kim’s mouth on a good day so why in hell would I believe this b.s.? This was all staged trying to get some good PR for both of them and once again this will blow up in these stunted adult-child like people. None of the pieces fit. Kid is just sitting there in a waiting room and little man Kanye new exactly who to punch and no one from that office is saying that the kid was yelling racist slurs at Kanye and let us all remember Kanye is very good at throwing racists slurs of his own. I wouldn’t doubt it if Kim asked the kid if he wanted to make some quick cash and this was all he had to do. And as always we are only hearing the KrapTrashian side of things and the kid has said nothing. I will wait to hear from him and although he is 18 he is still a teenager and I am sure his parents will get involved in this low-life bull all caused by Kimmode and the little guy.

  55. Hot Farts says:

    We all know Kanye was wrong, but he has a prior so he will do time. We don’t have proof until someone who heard it comes forward about what the kid said. So far only Kim says he screamed filth. We all know she is capable of any type of lying under any circumstances to get what she wants. Her own family say she is a habitual liar. We do know that the kid was sitting in a waiting room and NO WORDS WERE EXCHANGED BEFORE KANYE PUNCHED HIM. That is from the eyewitnesses in the office. KIM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS ASSAULT JUST AS MUCH AS KANYE AND I HOPE HER PART IN IT IS INVESTIGATED AND SHE IS CHARGED WITH RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT

  56. JJJ says:

    You know what I kept thinking about? Kim and Kanyes baby. Regardless of what spurned Kanyes rage, it is clear it is always brimming at the surface. What is going to happen when the child does something to anger him, and like all kids do, starts pushing the boundaries. What is kim gonna do??? Rage like this, scares me because it can be triggered on anyone, justified or not.

  57. gg says:

    Use the word, don’t use the word, you have an opinion, mine doesn’t matter …

    Guess what? If NOBODY used the damn word it wouldn’t exist and there would be one less problem here. I think it’s revolting, ALL RACES understand this concept, and nobody should use it. EVER.

  58. Abbicci says:

    Having driven in L.A. I have only one question. Where was Kanye that Kim could call him and he could be there in minutes to start a beat down on some kid? Was he waiting in the car or just around the corner? O.K two questions.

    Seriously, driving in L.A. seems to run at the speed of molasses running up hill in winter, where was he that he could be at Kim’s side to protect her ‘ honor and dignity’.

  59. Kim1 says:

    Isnt it odd that no witness to my knowledge heard the slurs.Correct me if I am wrong.No Paparrazi heard the slurs?

  60. Flower says:

    The fact that there is no mention of a bodyguard makes this whole story reek . My prediction…… the kid will walk away with a big financial pay out for not pressing charges.

  61. dj says:

    Wow. Besides the whole assault thing here. This seemed like a great way for Lucifer to figure out how to knock all the Golden Globes news off and get KK back in. MMMM?

  62. stanhope says:

    Today the unthinkable happened…..I like Kanye West. Only a punk would allow some jackass to verbally assault his lady. Further, the kid calling Kanye the n word says he wanted a full out beat down. Hell I would have put the little bitch in the hospital or the morgue. Politically correct no….but then I don’t care about political correctness.

    • Josephine says:

      Or the law. I would understand a bit more if he were standing right there. But he wasn’t. And there was nothing to defend – the situation had ended. And the kid was a nobody — why is Kayne so threatened by a skinny little punk who seems a bit mentally unbalanced? If everyone who has been subjected to racism reacted in this way, the jails would be full of dumb-asses who couldn’t figure out that some people are just not worth it. Take the high road. Be the bigger man — that’s not something that Kayne seems capable of. He doesn’t seem like much of a man at all. This is the guy who disappeared for his baby mama’s entire pregnancy, never walks with her, usually in front, and never holds open a door for her. And he calls her names. Class act he is not.

    • idk says:


      Well then I hope you enjoy your time in jail.

  63. stanhope says:

    I sincerely hope Kanye doesn’t settle and buried the little MF in courts until he and his family don’t have a loaf of bread to eat. DON’T SETTLE KANYE!!!!!

  64. janetoscano says:

    What about all their bodyguards? This story smells of Kim’s lies. It should have been handled differently then pummeling the kid 30 times in the face by a grown man. Who knows what the kid really said because Kim always lies about everything and that nasty bully Kanye always get away with beating up the weak. I guess this nasty bunch is trying to get publicity any way they can.

  65. Caz says:

    Hi PMK (we know you have people trolling this site). This is a really low PR angle even from you. Painting Kim as a victim of racist-related abuse, desperately trying to find a new PR position because the general public are calling BS on everything else you do? Puhlease.

  66. Spammy says:

    What bothers me is that this teenage sounds like he has mental issues. First he yells at the paparazzi and then quickly turns against Kim. He’s bursting with energy, you can see him hopping around outside. We don’t know he isn’t in a manic episode. People are frequently loud, impulsive, grandiose, moody & irritable in such episodes. They will say things they normally wouldn’t say or even think when manic. I’ve seen normal people become awful racists when cycling through this and expressing much regret afterwards. A manic episode is no excuse for the teen’s bad behavior but may provide a understandable reason for his reckless behavior especially since mania typically manifests in the late teens.
    Kanye may have made this situation much more cruel by using violence against a mentally ill person who may have lost his capacity to appreciate what they’re saying or doing.

  67. TOPgirl says:

    Kim should’ve shut the hell up and not of said anything to Kanye. She should’ve handled it on her own and then tell him later. The young man who was beat up did not deserve this no matter how horrible of the things he said to her. From watching the video on TMZ, any grown up can see that the young man was nothing but a young idiot and should just be ignored. Kanye and Kim are so disgusting together……they are like ooozing black tar.

  68. nyclove says:

    I hope Kanye doesn’t lose it witk Kim or his daughter one day. He seems to have a lot of rage.
    Kanye doesn’t seem to be able to control himself quite often. If the guy truly said those awful racist things, he is a scumbag, but he shouldn’t be beaten by Kanye. Kanye is an egomaniac and Kim should be not enabling him.

  69. Evi says:

    There is something missing in this story. Other versions I’ve read is that this kid was holding the door open for her to pass through. An interchange occured, with the 18 year old saying something first to the effect of [regarding paparazzi], ‘so this is what you have to go through…’ and then the narrative jumps to him verbally attacking her.
    There is something missing in between this. Did Kim say something to provoke a nasty response? No one will know. We’re talking about 18 year olds here, that often say the most stupid things.
    In any case, 30 punches is beyond a reasonable response and should justifiably saddle West with assault charges.
    All this indicates that West is an incredibly stupid man.
    There is the possibility that it was an intentional provocation in order to extort money from West [out of court settlement].
    Either way, I feel sorry for their baby. To have such self absorbed, idiotic parents doesn’t bode well.

  70. Mika302 says:

    I’m sorry but if summ asshole says racist things n my face I’m slapping the crap out of him and them my boyfriend would be all on him!!! And who really believes he hit him 30 times….he hit him tht many times and NO one tried to stop b4 that.. Sounds real stupid!!! And how do we know how big this white boy was? Just because he is 18 doesn’t mean he is little! Disrespect me or anybody n my family and we going off!! And I’m far from a violent person but u will NOT pop crap at us!!

    • idk says:

      There is video of him opening the door for Kim. The boy is very skinny. Also, yes what he said was horrible (remember there is no proof he said anything, this is just what Kim is claiming). If you think violence would solve the problem, then I hope you enjoy your time in jail…you and your bf.

  71. swack says:

    I’m sorry, but there are no less than 3 versions of this story out there. The first one the young man yelled racial slurs at her (not acceptable). The second one he threatened her life and now this third one where he threaten to beat her up. I agree with other posters that we only have Kim’s word that he yelled racial slurs at her. It may have happened but where is the proof. And for all of you praising Kanye for using violence, it’s just wrong. But this doesn’t surprise me, didn’t he get angry when he ran into a sign and went off on some paps? That day he went into the restaurant and then came back out to rage at the paps. Maybe he should break his vow not to say negative things about others for 6 months.

  72. yep says:

    Interesting. No bodyguards? The young man held the door open for her? Then he went off? She called her “man” to defend her? And pointed him out while he was sitting in a Dr.s office? And then just was all casual while her “man” slapped this skinny white boy? So many questions. If this story is true, she could be in big ass trouble. Literally. And what bothers me, is that there have been statements the young man held the door for her. And then let loose his mouth. Wouldn’t it be interesting if he had Tourettes, got overwhelmed over Kimmy, and he couldn’t help himself? It happens.

  73. Uncle B says:

    I’m not a big Kanye West fan, but I applaud him for punching that racist piece of crap.

  74. Violet says:


    I don’t know and I don’t care about the racial background of the “violence never solves anything” group — but I do know that if there were more of us, people wouldn’t get killed for looking suspicious in a hoodie. Or get shot for texting in a movie theater.

    Violence is only appropriate in self-defense; i.e., when someone is being PHYSICALLY attacked. The boy never laid a finger on Kim. If she felt threatened, she should’ve called the police to handle the matter.

  75. Kiddo says:

    Kanye IS NOT Trayvon Martin. I would have to exercise strenuous mental gymnastics to equate the two and their situations.

  76. Violet says:


    Actually, I’m drawing parallels between Kanye and George Zimmerman. Or Curtis Reeves. These are both examples of where individuals took a nonviolent confrontation to the next level, instead of stepping back and letting the authorities handle the matter.

    Maureen (comment #25) captures the seriousness of the attack perfectly — Kanye could have easily killed that kid with his violent outburst, and might well have if someone hadn’t pulled him away.

  77. Violet says:


    I’m NOT comparing Kanye to Trayvon, either. Like I said to Kiddo, I’m comparing Kanye to Zimmerman — both men reacting to a nonexistent threat with excessive violence. FYI, in the case of the movie theater killing, both the shooter and the victim were white.

    The bottom line is that Kanye, George Zimmerman, Curtis Reeves and Theodore Wafer all overreacted to a situation in which they — or, in this case, Kim — were never in any actual danger. Kayne is lucky that, unlike the other men, he didn’t kill his victim.

    It was the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s birthday yesterday, and this one of his quotes I find most inspiring: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
