A witness says Kanye West punched the alleged victim more than 30 times.
Additional information has surfaced regarding Kanye West's alleged assault of an 18-year-old man Monday (January 13). An eyewitness has come forward with an account of the alleged assault, which reportedly took place in a Beverly Hills chiropractor's office on the 8800 block of Wilshire Boulevard.
Kim Kardashian, Kanye West's fiance, was reportedly confronted by an 18-year-old who allegedly called paparazzi "faggot-ass niggers." When Kardashian noted that she felt his use of the n-word was inappropriate, the 18-year-old reportedly replied, “Fuck you, bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up nigger lover, stupid slut,” according to TMZ. West soon arrived on the scene, found the 18-year-old and allegedly punched the victim, according to early reports of the incident.
An eyewitness now has added that West approached the 18-year-old man while he was sitting down in an office. West didn't say anything before striking him in the face more than 30 times, the witness says. The alleged victim covered his face and later "curled up into a ball to block the blows," according to TMZ's report.
The receptionist asked West to stop while Kardashian watched silently, the witness adds. A massage therapist reportedly came into the waiting room where the incident was taking place to push West off the alleged victim. According to the witness, the therapist ordered West to leave. West left the building and Kardashian went into another office for a meeting, the report says.
