Kanye West is reported to have settled the recent claim of assault against him without going to court.

TMZ said the 36-year-old superstar rapper has settled the case taken against him earlier this month (Jan 2014) after he allegedly assaulted an 18-year-old man.

The unnamed teenager has, according to reports, been paid $250,000.

The alleged assault is reported to have taken place after the teenager was verbally abusive to West's fiancé Kim Kardashian.
