Kanye West has had quite the chaotic month, what with defending his Keeping Up With The Kardashians fiance against a nasty trash talker — and then facing the resulting assault charges. All’s well that ends well, however, for Kim Kardashian’s beau is officially in the clear.
It looks like Kanye West’s assault drama is finally about to come to an end. The other day, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office rejected battery charges against the hip hop artist, as he’d already managed to reach a civil settlement with the alleged victim. As TMZ had reported earlier this week, Kanye wound up paying the battery victim (who allegedly engaged in a racist rant against Kim Kardashian) over $250,000 in order to drop the case.
In the aftermath of the incident, Kanye has remained understandably quiet about all the chaos. Kris Jenner, while chatting with Australia’s 2DayFM Breakfast Show explained, “Kanye assaulted an 18-year-old man by punching him in the face. He was defending Kim.” The reality mom later added that, while she didn’t know most of the details from the case, she’d heard plenty about the involvement of racial slurs. “I do know that how it started was this person got really a lot of racial, hateful, horrible things that he was saying…And I think that’s where it started. I’m not quite sure how it ended.”
Although some of the details remain unclear, we know for sure that Kanye has managed to come to a satisfactory resolution. Thus, he’s in the clear — until the next time he snaps!
