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.

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!

Unfortunately, Kanye has the other charges weighing on him. Otherwise, their might be a case for justifiable provocation...might be. As it stands, following the guy into the chiropractor's office and repeatedly punching him in front if witnesses...most likely KW is going to have to whip out his check book and lose a sizable chunk o'cheddar.

Negotiate these nutz! This kid has no leverage if he refuses to cooperate wit cops, unless he thinks he can win in civil ct but he's not exactly a sympathetic plaintiff. So fcuk him.
