The teenager who allegedly had been assaulted by Kanye West earlier this month after he tossed racially charged insults at Kim Kardashian has pocketed a hefty settlement from the rapper, TMZ reported.

The 18-year-old is believed to have walked away with more than $250,000 in a civil settlement over the January 13 incident, in which he purportedly insulted Kim Kardashian and used the n-word as she walked into a paparazzi-surrounded office building in Beverly Hills.

Kanye West, who was nearby, came to help her, and he reportedly followed the teen into a chiropractor’s office, where a tussle ensued.

According to TMZ, the purported settlement makes it far less likely that Kanye West will be prosecuted for battery.

Before the incident, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were heading into a meeting to discuss furniture for their new Bel Air estate, and judging by their rumored interior design plans, the $250,000-plus payout won’t put much of a dent in their finances.
