Kanye West is reportedly being given a chance to avoid more criminal prosecution.
But it won't come cheap.
A week after West allegedly beat the crap out of an 18-year old who dropped racial slurs and threatened Kim Kardashian, TMZ reports that the victim is willing to let the assault charges go. For a price, of course.
An insider close to the situation says the unnamed teenager had his attorney contact Kanye's people and make it clear that a six-figure settlement would end this scandal once and for all.
The young man is anxious to get paid… but also to avoid a public trial because Kim is ready to go on record with the awful words that spewed out of his mouth toward her, West and photographers in the area.
The 18-year old has not been cooperating with police, either, this source claims.
The sides are in negotiation as we type and there is a reason Kanye may wish to pay the man and move on.
He supposedly pummeled the idiot over 30 times inside a doctor's office and is already facing assault charges from a July incident in LAX. It would be in the rapper's best interests to not get involved in another legal mess.
