Kim K’s rapper beau is getting bolder and bolder, now practically pushing her to leave her reality TV career behind. Will Kanye’s anti-‘Kardashians’ stance create a rift between the family?
Kanye West — Boldly Pushing Kim Out Of Reality TV
A source tells OK! that motherhood isn’t the thing pushing Kim out of her family’s reality show franchise — it’s Kanye!
“Since Kim got pregnant, Kanye’s been emboldened to suggest that maybe she should move on to the next stage of her career,” says the rapper’s friend.
“He’s been watching her shows and he thinks they’re demeaning to her and the rest of the family,” the source reveals. “He has these nightmares that Kim will give birth to their child on TV,” the friend continues.
It’s a fairly ballsy move for Kanye, to strongly suggest that Kim give up the thing that’s made her career. Especially because reality TV has become such a Kardashian family institution.
Reportedly Kim freaked the first time Kanye brought it up because “her whole business model has been built around a fishbowl experience.”
Kim Kardashian — What’s Next?
Kanye is looking to get his girlfriend and baby mama off of cable TV and into the fashion world, reportedly in hopes that he and Kim become as glamorous as his friends Jay-Z and Beyonce. “He says that they need to build the brand,” the same source says.
Kim now seems like she’s totally on board for a career revamp. “I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything. I’m shifting my priorities,” Kim said in an interview with the French magazine L’Officiel Hommes.
Kris Jenner — Livid Over Kim’s Decision
We can think of one person who probably isn’t getting on the Kim-Kardashian-fashion-icon train — Kris Jenner! Though Kim has promised to remain on Keeping Up With The Kardashians until season 10 (they’re currently finishing season 8), Kris will not be happy to lose her hottest commodity.
“Kris was furious when she found out what Kim was planning,” another source told OK!
Kris has gone as far as calling Kim’s decision for more privacy a betrayal.
Will Kanye end up being the thing that breaks up the Kardashians? Tell us what you think, HollywoodLifers!
