Kim K showed the world a new side of herself when she publicly called out Katie Couric on Instagram on August 16, and a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kanye is all for it.
Now that Kim Kardashian is a mother, she isn’t putting up with any more nonsense from her haters — sound familiar at all to the father of her child, Kanye West? Now a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the king of calling out critics is simply leading by example, but is totally on board with this new side of Kim.
Kanye West Loves How Kim Kardashian Is Calling Out Haters
“Kanye’s not telling her to do this or that but he supports Kim calling out fake people,” the source says.
Kim definitely did that on August 16 when she posted a picture of a baby gift Katie Couric had sent her along with the caption, “#IHateFakeMediaFriends #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkS**t.” Kim was responding to a recent interview Katie did, during which she stated that she was amazed that the Kardashians are famous: “I don’t understand — why are they so famous? I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested,” she boldly said.
“Kanye thinks what that woman did was straight trifling,” the source adds. “If you feel a certain way about someone, be real and don’t sugarcoat it.”
Kim Kardashian & Kris Jenner Following Kanye West’s Lead
Kanye’s well-known, no-nonsense philosophy is definitely rubbing off — and not just on Kim! After President Obama criticized Kim and Kanye as role models, it was Kris Jenner’s turn to put a hater on blast! “I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and that you wouldn’t mind going over there, Mr. President, while you were asking them to have a party for you when you were campaigning for dollars to run for president,” Kris fired back.
“Kanye’s just leading by example,” the source says. “Kanye doesn’t play games and has zero tolerance for fake people and Kim and her mom are taking notice.”
Which is a good thing, because at the very least they’re all being extremely protective of North West. “He and Kim have a baby to focus on,” the source concludes, “they’re busy raising a family and have no time for bulls**t.”
What do you think about Kim’s new fierce personality, HollywoodLifers? Is it good or bad for North? Let us know!
