According to TMZ, sources close with negotiations reveal the victim has agreed to a civil settlement and won’t go forward with a criminal prosecution.
The victim originally asked for a settlement in the upper six-figure range, but in the end agreed on an amount over $250,000. Law enforcement sources inform TMZ that the D.A. has not decided whether to charge Kanye with battery, though chances are in the end no charges will be filled.
The incident occurred after the victim yelled racial epithets at Kanye’s fiancee in the waiting room of a chiropractor office. Kanye, who was on the phone with Kim at the time, heard his fiancee being verbally attacked and rushed to her which is where the altercation took place.
