Kanye West and his fiance, Kim Kardashian are once again firmly in the spotlight. While sources differ as to where the incident actually occurred, the allegations of Kanye’s assault on a young man appear to be well founded.

The fiasco started when Kim tried to enter a building in Beverly Hills and was confronted by a host of paparazzi. A young man apparently came to her rescue attempting to help her get inside the building. While doing so, he began to yell racial slurs, like “n****r” and “f*****s” to the photographers. His choice of words offended Ms. Kardashian and she quickly berated him for the derogatory terms.

The young man then turned his aggression to her, calling her a “n****r lover”. In a recent interview with Ms. Kardashian, she claimed the man also threatened her life at the time. Although this information was not released until later, she claims she intended to file a police reporting concerning the death threat.

At the time of the incident, Kanye confronted the young man and physically assaulted him inside the office building. Kanye reportedly phoned Kardashian and heard parts of the young man’s tirade. Completely alarmed by the experience, Kanye rushed to his fiance’s side to confront the man. Once there, a physical altercation occurred which resulted in punches being thrown and Kanye facing a second assault charge.

The first assault and battery charge is the result of a confrontation between Kanye and a reporter at LAX in July of 2013. Kanye’s attorney has already entered his plea of not guilty, but sources say the new assault charge is not going to look good for him. The cases is turning out to be a battle of the high priced attorney since the photographer, Daniel Ramos, hired Gloria Allred as his attorney. Allred will be facing off against Blair Berk who is representing Kanye.

Now with two charges of assault and battery on the books, individuals close to the situation believe Kanye is going to have a long road ahead of him. Los Angeles city attorney’s may choose to take both cases to trial due to the fact that the first assault at LAX is no longer an isolated incident. Kanye’s aggressive behavior may allow prosecutors to determine an “M.O.” claiming he is a loose cannon waiting to go off on his next victim.

No matter what they decide, Kanye and Kim are sure to find more ways to milk the situation for all of the publicity it can muster.
