London - Kim Kardashian has accused the man allegedly punched by Kanye West of making death threats against her.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star plans to file a police report against the unnamed 18-year-old man - who was involved in an altercation with the 'Bound 2' hitmaker in a chiropractor's clinic on Monday - and is pushing for him to be prosecuted for making criminal threats.

According to website TMZ, Kim alleges he told her: "I will kill you sl*t."

The incident happened after the reality TV star - who has a seven-month-old daughter, North, with Kanye - was swamped by paparazzi in Beverly Hills and the man shouted abuse at them as he tried to help her.

He is said to have first talked about the photographers, saying: "F**k these fa***t-ass n*****s," as he guided Kim into a building.

When she told him it was inappropriate to use the N-word, he turned on her and allegedly shouted: "F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid sl*t."

Kim then watched the man walk into a chiropractor's office, before calling Kanye. When the man realised who she was on the phone to, he reportedly shouted: "F**k you n****r".

Kanye appeared a short time later and went into the chiropractor's waiting room, where the alleged altercation took place. Witnesses claim Kanye punched the teenager while Kim told him: "We have it all on tape."

A massage therapist at the practice then broke up the two men and the police were called. The man said he wanted to press charges against Kanye.

A police spokesperson has confirmed the 'Stronger' star is now a suspect in a battery investigation and wanted for interview. The incident may also be referred to the Los Angeles County District Attorney for prosecution.

Kanye is already in trouble for allegedly assaulting a photographer at a Los Angeles airport in July last year. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal battery and attempted grand theft, but the case is yet to be resolved. - Bang Showbiz
