Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian's manager and mother, is speaking up about the alleged assault that took place when her future son in law Kanye West reportedly used physical force to defend her daughter from a racist heckler.
While Jenner, 58, was out of town when the physical altercation that is under investigation took place, she told 2DayFM about the verbal assault aimed at her 33-year-old daughter engaged to rap mogul West,36.
Jenner said the reports that have been floating around sound like the account that she heard from her family.
"That sounds a lot like what I heard... I do know how it started was this person was got really, a lot of racial, hateful, horrible things that he was saying and I think that's where it started," she told 2DayFM. "I'm not so sure how it ended... but somebody got really out of line".
West is reportedly being named as the individual who assaulted an 18-year-old male in a Beverly Hills, Calif. chiropractic office Monday. The unnamed antagonist reportedly made West's "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star fiance uncomfortable after he began calling members of the paparazzi who were berating her by racial slurs, TMZ reported.
After she told him not to do so, the male then released a racially charged epithet about Kardashian and West. When West arrived on the scene, he reportedly punched the male in the face, TMZ reported.
"(Expletive) you (expletive). Just trying to help you," sources told TMZ the man said. "Shut up (expletive) lover, stupid (expletive)."
After the men were separated by a massage therapist in the office, TMZ is reporting that West left the scene. However, he has been named as a prime suspect in the Beverly Hills police department investigation.
"The named suspect was identified as Kanye West by the victim and several witnesses," police said in a statement to The Los Angeles Times.
