Report: Kanye West Punched 18-Year-Old Heckler Over 30 Times

Conflicting reports swirl as the drama continues to unfold.

Published January 15, 2014

Kanye West's alleged attack on an 18-year-old victim for calling Kim Kardashian a "n---er lover" and "slut," was an unfair match up, so says TMZ. West was reportedly relentless in his assault on the teen earlier this week and punched him 30 times before someone broke up the fight.

An eyewitness says West stormed into a Beverly Hills, Calif. doctor's office and confronted the man, who was seated in a chair, after Kardashian pointed him out. Yeezy reportedly didn't speak and was "unrelenting" in beating the victim as Kardashian watched. A receptionist even yelled for West to stop, but he refused while the man did nothing but try and protect himself from the blows until it was finally over.

However, TMZ's depiction of West as an angry aggressor that couldn't be tamed conflicts with various other incident recounts. Namely that of talk show host Wendy Williams, who claims that the story is being blown out of proportion. Williams reported on her show Tuesday (Jan. 14) that the altercation didn't go down in the chiropractor's office but in the building's stairwell and that West was already on the premises waiting on Kardashain so they could go furniture shopping. He did receive a tearful call from his fiancée after the man followed the 33-year-old reality star into the stairwell and continued his verbal assault, Williams said. 

Similarly, sources told E! News — which is owned by the cable network that airs Kardashian's reality show — that West was actually on hand for a design meeting at the time and that the man in question got in Yeezy's face and "wouldn't stop taunting" the Chicago MC. He also threatened Kardashian, who was "genuinely scared" of the teen and may file a police report against him. 

Law enforcement has only confirmed that West is suspected of battery and left the scene before they could speak with him, yet Kardashian has been fostering a lot of the public's blame for her role in potentially instigating the altercation. "The right thing to do is to understand first and foremost, they are trying to get you Kanye and you know that," Williams said during her show's "Hot Topics" segment. Since the 36-year-old music star has had so many angry exchanges with the paparazzi, Nike, the Grammys and anyone else who gets on his bad side, it may be time for the "Black Skinhead" rhymer to chill out, Williams advised. "You give them a reason to want to get you because of the way you act," she pointed out. 

'Ye hasn't cleared up the conflicting stories and may be sticking with his vow to not "to say anything negative about anyone" for at least six months.

Luckily, Kardashian didn't take the same oath. After the blow up, she left the scene driving West's black Lamborghini, telling the photgs to stop "starting rumors" when asked to confirm that her hubby-to-be was the attacker. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world ofhip hop and R&B music.
