kanye & teen*Remember that crap talking young 18-year-old white boy that met up with Kanye West‘s fists of fury in a chiropractor’s waiting room?

Well, it’s being reported that he’s reached out to Kanye to say he’ll go away quietly for “x” amount of money. We sure “x” is at least six figures, minimum.

Here’s what TMZ is reporting:

Sources connected with the 18-year-old tell us … his lawyer called Kanye’s people and expressed the desire to strike a civil settlement — FOR A PRICE — several hundred thousand dollars.

We’re told the 18-year-old is adamant — he does NOT want to go through a public trial.  As we reported … Kim Kardashian claims the young man was hurling racial epithets, calling her a “n***er lover” among other things.  We’re also told he has not been responsive with the police since the incident.

As for the $$$ … although eyewitnesses in the Beverly Hill’s chiropractor’s office say Kanye pummeled the guy … we’re hearing he has no apparent injuries.  Nonetheless, avoiding a criminal trial has a price.

Sources say both sides are currently in negotiations.

Sounds like dude has come up with a whole new way to shake down a celebrity. Or at least one that is presumed to be loaded and … well, we’ll let you fill in the magic word. In any event, Kimye’s response should be interesting and telling.
