Kanye, fall back! Calabasas isn’t big enough for his AND Kim Kardashian’s ego. The couple were both included in ‘TIME’ magazine’s ‘100 Most Influential’ issue, but Yeezy managed to land the cover spot, while his wife was snubbed — and she isn’t happy about it!
Kim Kardashian, 34, is riled that her husband Kanye West, 37, is eclipsing her star! After they were both named among TIME’s “100 Most Influential” people, but he landed the coveted cover spot without her, she’s making it clear that she’s pretty upset.
Kim Kardashian And Kanye West’s Fight Over Time Magazine Cover
Kim’s life’s work is gaining publicity, but the outspoken Grammy winner’s coup with TIME has given him an edge – and the reality star is not happy about it.
“Kim’s serious about her image and she’ll damned if she ever walks in Kanye’s shadow. She would never let that happen and he’d better understand that,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Though Kim’s thrilled that she and her man were honored by the publication, she expected the hitmaker to fight for her spot beside him. “She’s mad at the powers that be and Kanye because she wanted to be on the cover next with him,” the insider adds.
“She’s mad at Kanye in particular for not being vocal enough to get her on the cover with him. She knows he has that kind of pull to make those things happen and he did nothing.”
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West: He Landed Her The Cover Of Vogue
Not having Kim by his side for the prestigious cover is an unusual move for Kanye. Previously, he helped land her a spot on the April 2014 issue of American “Vogue” where they were pictured together – and he stood behind the beauty, who posed in a wedding dress.
The source adds that the couple, who married in May 2014 and have 21-month-old daughter North West, appear to have become attention-seeking rivals. “They often fight over fame and popularity. It’s to the point where they argue over who walks out of the airport terminal first to get their pictures taken by the paparazzi.”
One thing Kim and Kanye are on the same page about, though, is the cuteness that exudes from their daughter, North! Earlier this month, the trio took a family trip to Armenia, Israel, where North was baptized, and Paris, and the tiny toddler was just looking more adorable than ever.
In fact, in rare form, North even flashed a huge smile to paparazzi cameras while being wheeled through the airport! It’s safe to say she didn’t learn that one from Kanye!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers. Does Kim have a right to be mad that Kanye allowed the “Time” snub to happen? Sound off in the comments!
