Kim Kardashian feared she would be killed during the racially charged run-in on Monday, Jan. 13 with a teenager who allegedly called her a "n***er lover", a source close to the reality star told In Touch.
The 33-year-old’s fiancé Kanye West was accused of attacking the teen in a chiropractor’s waiting room earlier this week.
According to initial reports, the Yeezus star punched the 18-year-old multiple times after Kim called to tell him about the racial slurs.
But a source close to the reality star said today the teen was heckling Kim and followed her into the building.
She became so frightened that the guy was going to shoot her and everyone around them that she ran into a chiropractor’s office to phone Kanye, who naturally came to her aid, the insider said.
"Kim said that he had crazy eyes and she was thinking, 'Is he going to shoot me and start shooting all these people'. She was really scared. She was shaking.
“Neither Kim nor the kid were going to the chiropractor. It seemed as if the kid was just there to taunt Kim and he heckled her going in and then he followed her into the building.
"Usually she'd have a guy [bodyguard] with her; a guy with her, a driver. I don't really know why she didn't — maybe it's because she wasn't with Nori, sometimes people just have a day off.”
The source confirmed to In Touch that when Kim called Kanye for help, he could hear the teen calling her the racial slur in the background, but said reports he punched him 30 times were exaggerated.
“It wasn’t that much. It was like 30 seconds before the receptionist for the chiropractor broke it up," the source said.
“The kid obviously had no idea how close Kanye was. He threatened her. That's why her attorneys are filing suit.”
