The 'Yeezus' rapper reportedly settles with the man he allegedly assaulted in Beverly Hills after he made racial slurs at his fiancee Kim Kardashian Kanye WestKanye West can put one of his his legal scuffles behind him...the 'Yeezus' rapper has settled with the man he allegedly assaulted earlier this month in Beverly Hills.

But it certainly cost him! TMZ reports that the guy Kanye allegedly hit after he yelled racial slurs at Kim Kardashian is getting a major payout from Kanye worth more than $250,000 to avoid criminal prosecution.

Although the district attorney hasn't yet decided whether to charge him with battery, it seems highly unlikely since the victim has settled.

While $250,000 sounds like a lot of money, the 18-year-old victim originally was asking for a six figure settlement, so it's actually not that high of a number.

Kanye was also charged with battery after an altercation with a pap at LAX airport last July.

Do you think he'll be able to keep his temper in check going forward?
