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.

If you are going to hit someone, then expect consequences and backlash.

Going to be a hypocritical thug, when you use the N-word in your lyrics, then think it is okay to pummel an 18 year old, then run off to France like nothing happened.

How arrogant and narcissistic.

Your woman instigated it. She could have just walked away or called the police.

I hope Kayne is held accountable.

Doesn't matter what the guy said, you can't assault someone just because you don't like it. Pay up, ****a Kinte. If you had any brains, you would have kept your fists in your pocket, and recorded the racism, so you could file a human rights complaint like everyone else has to do in that situration. Then the guy would have to pay you, and he would be publically humiliated in the trial. If you want to live to see your daughter grow up, you better get a grip before you punch out the wrong guy and find a bullet in your face.

Kanye should have made it worth while I would have put that little bastard in a wheel chair. Because he knows why the ass hole was taunting him. Also it doesn't help that he has an ego bigger than the size of Kim s ass.

**** the both of them. The one guy shouldn't be yelling out bull**** to people and Kanye needs to stop putting his hands on anyone that pisses him off.

He's a lucky guy. I'd like to get a chance to abuse Kanye so he can beat me up and pay me $200,000.

So, so silly    

Kanye is so stupid. He should know by now that use of that racial slur by various people of a race different from his own is solely to push one into giving a reaction. From the time I was in high school til now I've known that many silly cowards love to hurl this phrase. If you date interacially in this country you have to expect this type of flack. If Kanye had any common sense he wouldve laughed it off and the same goes for kim. She has dated a sufficient number of black men to have heard this phase before. Learn to have clever comeback and keep it moving. Same thing goes for this site, cowards make various racially charged comments soley for a reaction. I for one lolol refuse to take

Since Harvey/TMZ likes to provide evidence of alleged crimes and/or crime scenes like the pics from inside of Beibers house... Where is the audio/video evidence of this kid using racial slurs and threatening to kill Kim??? Does it exist??? Did it even happen??? Is Kim an accessory to this crime??? Is Kanye on some type of drug that makes him angry at the world??? So many questions...
