Kim Kardashian had her life threatened by a teenager who was later chased down and punched by her fiancé Kanye West, it was alleged today.
The reality star filed a police report against the unidentified 18-year-old who reportedly called her a ‘n***** lover’ and screamed ‘I will kill you s***’ in a wild rant in front of hoards of paparazzi.
The teenager was allegedly jumping up and down, screaming ‘n*****’ and ‘f*****’ at photographers when Kardashian arrived at a Beverly Hills furniture store on Monday. When she told him not to use the n-word, he turned on her, according to TMZ.
The teenager is said to have screamed at Kardashian: ‘F*** you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n***** lover, stupid s***.’
The bizarre confrontation escalated when Kardashian called West, 36, during the incident.
Then, according to TMZ, ‘when the guy realized Kanye was on the phone he allegedly said, ‘F*** you n*****.’ – so that the rap star could hear.
The Yeezus star then roared up in his Lamborghini a few minutes later. ‘Witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, ‘We have it all on tape’, according to TMZ.
Kardashian, 33, is filing a police report against the man for making criminal threats.
The 18-year-old has also told Beverly Hills police that he wants to press charges against West.
Law enforcement sources in LA have confirmed that Kanye is officially a suspect and that the matter has been referred to the County DA for possible prosecution.
Beverly Hills Police officers arrived on the scene but West and Kardashian had already left, the BHPD confirmed on Monday.
