The victim wants to press charges against Kanye ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.  What's more, our sources say he's been interviewed by cops and they've determined he did indeed suffer injuries during the attack.  Cops will refer the case to the D.A. as a felony attempted robbery and not a battery case.  The routine is to go after the suspect for the most serious charge.

Oh poor Kim. Looks like your latest quest for yet another fairy tale romance has turned into a nightmare. But, you can't break up with this one. He's going to be around for the long haul wether you like it or not. Open you mind before you open your legs!

Again??? Thank you Kanye for making it more difficult for black men, and promoting black stereotypes. I'm tired of seeing ignorant black men like Kanye in the media. Come on Hollywood, there are millions of intelligent black men in the world. Stop covering the ignorant ones. Please!!!

I don't like kanye as much the next guy but leave the guy alone, jeezh. He has explained many that he doesn't want to talk to him and they keep going at it. That pap just wants some money, Kanye didn't hurt him at all.

I'm pretty sure how this is going to play out. Kanye knocks up Kim K. BIG mistake. Especially if you want to stay out of the limelight. They couldn't be more polar opposites. It's just unfortunate that they didn't think about this before they brought another life into it. Now, they still seem to be struggling with their own individual egos, plus Mama Jenner in the mix. What a sorry situation. Kim is the most popular sister only because she is the most needy amid screws up the most. A valuable lesson Kim. The higher you are, the bigger the drop. I think you are in a free fall right now, but you have a little girl falling with you. So sad!

Nothing + nothing = nothing. I wish him and the whole K family would go away and stay there. LOSERS. Our country has lost its way when you can make a sex tape and become rich off of it (and your entire loser family).

I hope they don't let him get away with it. Stars always have a way of getting around the law. I'd like to see him go to jail, even if it is a short sentence. See how bad he is then.

The paparazzi looks like he's smiling in that photo. Maybe he was hoping that this would happen, and was pleased with himself when he got what he wanted, 15 minutes of fame and $$$.
