Look, we all want to get rich quick. But it appears that the best way to become really wealthy in a very short amount of time is to find yourself in a situation where you are punched repeatedly by Kanye West. (RELATED: Kanye West punched a guy who yelled racial slurs at Kim Kardashian)

Earlier this month, an 18-year-old guy was yelling racial slurs at Kim Kardashian in a chiropractor’s office. Kim called Kanye and he walked into the waiting room and started wailing on the kid.

Now, that kid is more than $250,000 richer for acting like a jerk.

TMZ reports that Kanye settled with his victim for over $250,000. The guy is satisfied with the amount and so he will not proceed with a criminal trial.

According to the site: “Law enforcement sources tell us … the D.A. has not decided whether to charge Kanye with battery. The reality is … there’s almost no chance of that happening. First, the D.A. now has an uncooperative victim. Second, the victim’s alleged racial epithets will not sit well with the jury. And there are probably lots of Kanye fans in the jury pool.”

Kanye has a notoriously short temper and is currently facing assault charges for beating up a paparazzo at LAX last year.

However, this kid totally deserved what was coming to him for yelling disgusting things at Kim, even if we would all be happy if we never saw her stupid face ever again.
