Kanye West Under Investigation for Alleged Fight
We’ve had our fair share of Kanye comedy on this site.
Kanye West, after all, had quite a year with an elaborate proposal, radio rant and one-man rebellion against the snobbery of the fashion industry.
He claimed he would try to keep it quiet this year, but it appears an 18-year-old wouldn’t let him keep his 2014 resolution.
The man allegedly called Kim Kardashian a n*gger lover and said “I will kill you slut” before incurring the wrath of the mask-wearing MC who reportedly came to the scene at Kardashian’s request and started throwing hands like he was in the audience at his own concert. Here’s People’s account of the incident:
A source close to Kim Kardashian says it was the bystander – who has not been identified – who instigated the event and threatened the reality star.
“Kim was walking into a furniture meeting for their new home,” the source tells PEOPLE. “Kanye was there ahead of her for the meeting. So Kim gets there and walks into the building with a million paparazzi trailing her.” The source says a Caucasian man began yelling racial obscenities to the paparazzi, then when Kardashian told him “that wasn’t cool,” the man began hurling epithets at her about her and West. “At this point Kim was seriously afraid for her life,” the source continues. “He was going nuts. Kanye came down to help her but then the guy ran into a chiropractic office so Kim and Kanye walked in after him.” The man verbally confronted West with obscenities, and at one point West hit him – “barely,” the source insists.
We don’t know how to call this one.
What do you think of this situation? (Read the full story here at USA Today.) Then, reflect on JET’s resident therapist’s opinion of Mr. West’s public conduct in last week’s Moment of Clarity. (We think she might be psychic.)
