After paying big money to the teen he allegedly pummeled at a chiropractor’s office in Beverly Hills, Calif., it appears that Kanye West won’t be charged criminally for the assault.

According to the Associated Press, the Los Angeles County prosecutor rejected the case because Yeezy reached a civil settlement with the young man and there were no significant injuries to report.

West reportedly paid the 19-year-old victim $250,000 in order to settle the case.

The prosecutor’s evaluation report also revealed that there were conflicting eyewitness statements about how many times West punched the victim, who was uncooperative when prosecutors tried to speak to him about the incident.

As we previously reported, West got into a physical altercation with the young man after he allegedly hurled a racial epithet at Kim Kardashian.

West was not arrested, and his attorney Blair Berk had no comment on the prosecutor’s decision.
