News has learned that the Los Angeles District Attorney
has declined to prosecute or pursue charges against the rapper
following an alleged assault incident in Beverly Hills earlier
this month.
We were told that this outcome was possibly last week, after
the alleged assault victim failed to appear at a followup
interview with authorities. Criminal defense attorney Troy
Slaten (who is not directly involved with the case) told E!
News at the time that authorities usually want victims to
come in after the incident so they can explain the extent of
the injuries, show results of any medical exams and/or
treatments to compile the most complete and accurate report
to the District Attorney.
However, Slaten added that, “If they don’t have a cooperative
victim, the case is harder to prosecute. If you have no victim,
it would most likely get dismissed.”
Police responded to a 911 call on Jan. 13 after Yeezy
confronted a teen who was reportedly screaming racial slurs
at his fiancée Kim Kardashian while the E! star was arriving
to a design appointment.
“Kim and Kanye were meeting for an appointment today,” a
source told E! News at the time of the incident. “Kim arrived
later than Kanye. En route into the building Kim saw a young
man yelling racial slurs at the paparazzi. Kim told him he
shouldn’t use racial slurs and he turned on her and verbally
assaulted her.”
The source says that the young man verbally attacked the
Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, telling her to “shut the
f–k up” before continuing to use the N-word while aiming his
insults at Kim. “The two ended up in a stairwell where the
man was in her face and continued to verbally assault her,”
the insider added. “She was genuinely scared.”
Kanye, who was already present at the building, called Kim
and overheard the teen yelling at her, so he “came running
down…he confronted the guy,” according to the source.
