Uh-oh! A new report says that the Kardashian matriarch and Kim’s baby daddy are at odds, because Kris sees the baby as a ‘money maker,’ while Kanye wants ‘100 percent full control’ of his child — and that means no TV show!
He “ain’t saying she a golddigger,” except that, oh wait, yes he is! Kanye West and Kris Jenner are currently at WAR, as Kris is “furious” with Kanye for announcing Kim Kardashian‘s pregnancy on stage on Dec. 30, because she knows they could have made a fortune from a magazine deal. Unfortunately, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Kanye does NOT want his baby to appear on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, while Kris is “licking her lips in anticipation, already saying that the baby could be worth a billion dollars to the family empire.” And it looks like Kanye, 35, may ask Kim, 32, to fire her momager! Read on for all the shocking details.
Kanye’s War With Kris
As any KUWTK fan knows, Kris appears to be a determined and ambitious woman, who will do anything to make her family more rich and famous, and she sees this baby as a serious money maker. Meanwhile, Kanye wants to keep his private life private, and this is bound to cause tension. Kris’ other daughter Kourtney sold both her pregnancy announcements to magazines, and her son Mason makes regular appearances on their shows. Kris has similar plans for Kim!
“There’s a war waging,” a source tells OK! “Kris sees all her offspring as money makers, as ways to increase the empire. With Kanye, he wants 100 percent full control of his first child with Kim — and he wants full control of Kim.” Yikes!
Kanye purposefully made the announcement at his show in order to avoid Kris shopping a deal, as he wants to lead a quieter life in the future:
“Kanye broke the news at Revel because there was discussion of E! announcing it or shopping the announcement to timed the premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” continues the source. “And Kanye made it pretty clear that he wants to take a cue from [his good friends] Beyonce and Jay-Z and really keep a lot of their personal life private. He announced this on his own to show Kris and everyone else that it’s his family, and he doesn’t want to sell anything.”
A Kardashian keeping their life private? I think it’s safe to say pigs will fly before that happens!
Kris’ Plans For Baby
“She’s [Kris] been waiting for this news for a long time. Kim and her mom are already seeing how they can cash in by marketing baby products with weight loss endorsements when Kim wants to get back into shape after her pregnancy.”
However, Kim has been responsive to Kanye’s needs, as “she’s been trying to keep her personal life private since last year.”
Can Kim have it all?
Kim & Kanye’s Low Key Baby
It looks like Kim is eager to keep Kanye happy:
“They are realizing that they are ways to show your personal life without showing every little detail,” says the insider. “That’s not to say they’re going to hide their baby or that Kim won’t do any stories about this being the happiest day of her life and that she’s excited for her pregnancy.”
However Kanye is willing to take Kris down if he needs to.
Kris Or Kanye — Who’s Side Will Kim Take?
Kanye “won’t let anyone make his feelings for Kim into a joke or cheapen his relationship. If that means he gets into fights with Kris about it then he will.”
But will Kris push that far? Kris is a demanding woman, who usually gets what she wants, but it seems unlikely that she would risk missing vital parts of her grandchild’s life just to make more money.
“Kris loves Kim and has always loved Kanye, and thought that he was a great guy and a smart businessman,” says another Kardashian insider. “Strong personalities can clash. It doesn’t mean they don’t love each other or care, they just don’t see eye to eye and unfortunately that is what is happening now.”
However, the source says that if push comes to shove, and Kris was forced to choose between fame or family, she would have to bite her tongue and step back from the limelight.
“Kris will step back and let her daughter take more control of her own life. At the end of the day she’s not willing to lose her grandchildren for money and would never jeopardize the family for a payday. Kris knows that money and fame come and go, but true friends and family are the most important things.”
Well, thank the heavens for that! However, my bet is that Kanye will still have a tough road ahead of him, as Kris can be quite persistent and Kim is easily persuaded. And with Ryan Seacrest recently announcing that Kim’s pregnancy would be documented on the show, it’s only natural to presume that fans would want to see the baby on the show as well.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Kim listen to her mom and make money off her baby, or should she listen to Kanye and keep their lives private?
