Kanye West

18-year-old Alleged Battery Victim

Wants Cash to Settle

The 18-year-old who Kanye West allegedly beat up last week in a chiropractor's waiting room has approached the rapper, asking for a ton of money to settle the case without criminal prosecution ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the 18-year-old tell us ... his lawyer called Kanye's people and expressed the desire to strike a civil settlement -- FOR A PRICE -- several hundred thousand dollars.

We're told the 18-year-old is adamant -- he does NOT want to go through a public trial.  As we reported ... Kim Kardashian claims the young man was hurling racial epithets, calling her a "n***er lover" among other things.  We're also told he has not been responsive with the police since the incident.

As for the $$$ ... although eyewitnesses in the Beverly Hills chiropractor's office say Kanye pummeled the guy ... we're hearing he has no apparent injuries.  Nonetheless, avoiding a criminal trial has a price.

Sources say both sides are currently in negotiations.

The kid didn't say anything that wasn't true and just because u don't like it doesn't mean u can assault someone.

Keep it 100    

Bottom line, keep your pie hole closed, if you don't want your ass beat. The N word is is unacceptable and you use it, you get handled as needed. PERIOD.

Why all the haters toward the 18 yr old that just ran his mouth? Is there not a big difference -verbal abuse and physical abuse? Saying this kid is poor-where's that fact? Wasn't he in the same building as Kim? IMO she should have ignored the kid instead of calling her man to give this kid a beat down because of words. PATHETIC !!!!

It was all more marketing. They weren't in the news enough for awhile, so Kris Jenner staged the entire thing.
