Oh yeezus! Kanye West has managed to step in it again. A source close to Kim Kardashian told Us Weekly that a tussle went down at a Beverly Hills building where Kim had an appointment Monday. An as yet unidentified 18-year-old man, standing outside with paparazzi, allegedly shouted derogatory and racial slurs to Kardashian, which set off West, whom she had called on her cell. The rapper then reportedly came to the site, followed the man into a chiropractor's office and punched him in the arm. Police were then called. The matter will be referred to the L.A. County D.A. for possible prosecution. According to a Beverly Hills Police Department statement: “Mr. West had left the location prior to officers arrival. As of this writing, BHPD Detectives are conducting a follow-up investigation.” West already faces charges of battery and attempted grand theft in an altercation with a photographer at LAX last summer.

The single life

It’s official: The ring is off. Hilary Duff was seen with son Luca while dropping by a friend’s house on Monday in Los Angeles. Earlier in the day, the 26-year-old singer-actress was seen not wearing her wedding ring while heading to a workout session in West Hollywood. In November, everything seemed great between the Lizzie Maguire star, 26, and her hockey-playing, soon-to-be-ex-husband Mike Comrie. She told E! News she was looking to expand her family. “If I had another boy, I would be happy, but I would like to try for a girl, and I'm not sure that I want to have three kids."

Going for a jaunt

Famed breastfeeder Gisele Bundchen’s maternal instincts have been called into question after being photographed carrying her baby (in a carrier) on her lap while riding an all-terrain vehicle without a helmet in Costa Rica. She had one hand on Vivian, one hand on the handlebars. In 2010, weeks after giving birth to Benjamin, Mrs. Tom Brady told Harper’s Bazaar that there should be a “worldwide law in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”

Meeting of the minds

Kelly Osbourne has an unusual remedy for the breakup blues: getting lessons on spray painting with Justin Bieber. Is that a good thing? Bieber was cited for defacing public property in Brazil for doing just that. The Fashion Police personality just ended her engagement to Matthew Mosshart.

Meanwhile, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department served a search warrant at Bieber’s Calabasas, Calif., home, after the singer was allegedly involved in an egg-throwing incident at a neighbor’s home this week. It’s “part of a felony vandalism investigation,” Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the LAPD, said in a statement.

Pay up

Paulina Rubio is suing Telemundo for trying to replace her as coach on the upcoming season of La Voz Kids. In the suit, Rubio claims the network agreed to pay her $1.3 million but then reneged when it found cheaper talent.
