TMZ reports that the 18-year-old that Kanye West assaulted in the waiting room of a Beverly Hills chiropractor has received over $250,000 after Kanye settled with him. The young man allegedly shoted racial slurs at Kim Kardashian but still ended up getting a civil settlement. He is no longer going to go forward with a criminal prosecution.
The district attorney has not decided if it will charge West with battery, but there isn't much of a chance that they will. The DA now has a victim that doesn't wish to press charges and that victim's alleged slurs would not go over well with a jury. There are probably also fans of West in a potential jury pool.
The settlement was only a fraction of the upper six figure amount the victim originally wanted.
