Kanye West is known to go a little overboard sometimes, but he seems sadly justified today, if a TMZ report is true. According to the site, 'Ye's fiancee Kim Kardashian was walking into an office building in Beverly Hills when she was, as tends to happen, swarmed by the paparazzi. At that point, an 18-year-old man stepped in and helped her in the door, shielding her from the photographers as she entered. So far, so good.

But that's when things go a little off the rails. TMZ is reporting that as Kim walked past the man and entered the building, he unleashed a tirade directed at the paps, saying to Kim, "Fuck these fa**ot-ass n****rs," which prompted Kim to admonish him for using the slurs. After that, the man apparently turned on Kim, calling her a "n***er lover" and a "stupid slut," before running into the waiting room of a chiropractor's office. A few moments later, Kanye showed up, and he and Kim walked into the office, where they found the man and, apparently, Kanye punched him while Kim yelled that they "had it all on tape."

A therapist in the office separated Kanye and the man, and the man then told police he wanted to press charges, because of course he did. No word on whether Kanye and/or Kim will be pressing charges as well, but this is a really sad, messed-up incident that makes it look like people are just going out of their way to goad Kim and Kanye for some lawsuit money. Yikes.
