Kanye West has apparently been involved in another physical altercation, and this one doesn't directly involve paparazzi.

The rapper allegedly assaulted an 18-year-old man earlier today (Jan. 13) in Los Angeles after he disrespected Kim Kardashian by using racial epithets, according to TMZ.

Kardashian was at a Beverly Hills medical building, and, as usual, was being followed by paparazzi. A man was apparently attempting to help the reality TV show star into the building while simultaneously offending the cameramen around them.

"Look at all these f----- ass n-----s," he reportedly shouted. After Kardashian told him not to use the N-Word, the 18-year-old responded by saying, "F--- you bitch. Just trying to help you.  Shut up n----- lover, stupid slut."

The teen didn't let up, which caused Kardashian to call West. The 'Blood on the Leaves' rhymer showed up to the office where the teen apparently was in and found him inside chiropractor Richard Hill's waiting room. The Chi-Town rapper started punching him as Kardashian yelled, "We have it all on tape." A massage therapist eventually broke up the two before Beverly Hills cops arrived.

West is now a suspect in a battery investigation. The 18-year-old man is filing charges against West for punching him.

Of course, this isn't the first time the 'Yeezus' creator was involved in an altercation. Last year, he grabbed an invasive paparazzo and was charged with battery.
