Kanye West Suspect In Battery Investigation

Kanye West was out with his fiance, Kim Kardashian, when a teenager allegedly spewed racial epithets at the pair. The words upset Kanye so much that he allegedly punched the 18-year-old and fled the scene before authorities arrived.

According to TMZ, the man-in-question allegedly threatened Kardashian's life, saying 'I will kill you.' The man was supposedly trying to help the couple get past paparazzi while flinging racist and homophobic words towards the cameramen. When Kardashian called him out on it, he turned his attack towards her.
