Kanye West had to dig real deep in his pockets to settle his most recent assault case.
According to reports, the 36-year-old rapper paid off the 18-year-old whom he allegedly punched at a Beverly Hills doctor’s office earlier this month. He settled the matter outside of court by paying the unnamed victim, who allegedly called Kim Kardashian a “slut and “n****r lover,” more than $250,000.
Instead of moving forward with a criminal prosecution, Radar Online reports the teen agreed to the civil settlement in efforts to “avoid the public spectacle that would come with a trial.”
In related Kimye news, sources confirm that E! cameras will be rolling during their June nuptials. According to reports, West agreed to televised the wedding after the network offered to pay the multimillion-dollar tab.
