Kanye West

18-year-old Alleged Battery Victim

Wants Cash to Settle

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Even if they settle the DA needs to charge Kanye for this crime. It shouldn't get him off the hook. No matter what someone says you have no right to get violent. Kanye is a time bomb waiting to explode. Time to lock him up.

Kanye will get away easy this time if just for forking over cash but there will be a next time he falls into a rage!
He should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as there were witnesses.

Why am I not surprised? Of course the kid wants cash to settle out of court. Hot head Kanye was sat up & walked right into it. Kanye has a child now that he is suppose to be sitting an example to instead of behaving the way he did & always does. The things that kid was supposedly saying to Kim was wrong but you just don't act like you are from the jungle every time something negative is said.

I really hope this man receives nothing. Just wish Kanye would've ignored him but how can you when someone is provoking you?

The 18 year old sounds like a spoiled Beverly Hills bitch kid. Kanye should let it go to court,just to serve his ass up. Tmz, you forgot to mention one point of this story; what was the 18 year old doing at the office originally?

Good for him. Kanye is so damn dumb he walked right into that one. And Kim calling the mad dog boyfriend to go whup his ass was the most cliche' crap I've ever seen come to life.
It doesn't matter what racial slurs that boy hurled. It doesn't matter what he said to kim or Kanye. He could've called North a little bitch and it wouldn't have mattered. You don't put your hands on someone. PERIOD! The second you touch someone that's assalt and battery. END OF STORY. And once more, he did it in front of a whole room full of witnesses. DOCTORS and NURSES nonetheless. MORON! He deserves every thing he gets. It doesn't matter if this boy was injured or not. There were witnesses to the assalt. That boy was a genius. He played the system. He played Kanye. Kanya deserves everything he gets. MORON. YOU DON'T PUT YOUR HANDS ON SOMEONE NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY.
Sticks and Stones dumb ass! Hey, You're a dumb, inbred, *&^%% &^$9 ^%$#### with a big fat ^^$#$# and your girlfriend is a ugly &*&%$$! Now, come hit me bitch! C'mon. I dare ya. Mama needs a new diamond necklace!
