According to TMZ's account, the teenager opened the door for Kardashian as she attempted to evade a swarm of paparazzi, before he allegedly called them "fa**ot-ass n****rs." When the 33-year-old TV personality told him not to use the N-word, he became angry with her and said, "F**k you, bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut."
When West arrived, he and Kardashian saw the man in the waiting room. Witnesses said the 36-year-old musician punched the man, who told cops he might press charges.
Police said later that they had opened an investigation into the incident, with West facing possible battery charges.
"The named suspect was identified as Kanye West by the victim and several witnesses," police said.
