Less than 24 hours after Kanye West allegedly assaulted an 18-year-old in defense of fiancée Kim Kardashian, new footage of the victim has surfaced online.
In the pre-attack clip, the teen appears to defend Kim K in light of paparazzi surrounding her.
The 18-year-old who got attacked in a doctor's waiting room by Kanye West is on VIDEO -- outside the building and before the confrontation -- and he appears to taunt the paparazzi as Kim Kardashian walks in. The barely-a-man screams to Kim, "They're whack, dude. You have to deal with that everyday?" He then excitedly hops up the front steps like a rabbit. The video stops as Kim walks in. TMZ broke the story ... Kim claims the man then started to hurl epithets to Kim about the paparazzi, calling them "n*****s" and "fa****s" Kim says she then called him out for using the word and then he turned on her, calling her a "n****r lover." At that point Kim called Kanye on his cell -- he was nearby -- and the guy apparently knew Kanye was listening and he called the rapper a "n****r." (TMZ)
Buzz behind the nasty confrontation landed across the Internet Monday (January 13).
Beverly Hills police issued a statement confirming that the department responded to a call at a few minutes after noon to an address on Wilshire Boulevard regarding a misdemeanor battery. "The named suspect was identified as Kanye West by the victim and several witnesses. Mr. West had left the location prior to Officers arrival. As of this writing, BHPD Detectives are conducting a follow-up investigation. No further information at this time." (USA Today)
The incident reportedly happened when Kim went into a furniture meeting.
A source close to Kim Kardashian says it was the bystander - who has not been identified - who instigated the event and threatened the reality star. "Kim was walking into a furniture meeting for their new home," the source tells PEOPLE. "Kanye was there ahead of her for the meeting. So Kim gets there and walks into the building with a million paparazzi trailing her." The source says a Caucasian man began yelling racial obscenities to the paparazzi, then when Kardashian told him "that wasn't cool," then man began hurling epithets at her about her and West.

Last year, Ye explained why he reacted violently when confronted by a paparazzo back in July.
In the TMZ footage, North West's father shared his concerns that his daughter will have to deal with the paps. "I couldn't imagine my daughter being four years old and you guys screaming at 'em," he said. He also addressed his altercation with the photographer at LAX in July. "That's the day I found out that my grandfather was not gonna make it. He passed two weeks later," said 'Ye, who has been charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft. But he was in a much better mood on Friday. "I know you guys are gonna photograph me. I know it makes a cool photo. I got a cool a** car and sh*t. I got a dope a** outfit on. It's all good and sh*t." He even extended an olive branch. "We're in this together. You guys help me influence, you help with the family, you help Kim's power and everything, so I'm not tryna f*ckin' get at you guys in any type of negative way," he said. "I would prefer that we just have a decent relationship." (Rap-Up)
