A few weeks back, a report surfaced claiming that Kanye West had begun pressuring Kim Kardashian to "abandon her family" for him. And now Yeezy is also distancing himself from the Kardashian-Jenners.
According to OK! (via HollywoodLife.com), Kanye "is feeling overwhelmed" by "Kim's interfering family" and is "taking a stand!"
"Kanye wants no part of the Kardashian invasion," an "insider" tells the mag. "They're a force -- a gang, kind of. They swoop in and dominate, and Kanye won't be dominated."
ROFL at "Kanye won't be dominated." Sure, it's true, but who talks like that? Anyway, since "Kanye won't be dominated," he threatened to skip Khloe Kardashian's birthday party, which "infuriated" momager Kris Jenner because his presence would have helped ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
"He's on tour with Jay-Z and can't just drop everything because his girlfriend's sister is having a birthday," "another source" tells OK!, adding, "Kris has been orchestrating all sorts of photo ops and ridiculous publicity stunts. Aside from the fact that Kanye finds it annoying, he also doesn't want to do anything to ruin his image. And he's putting his foot down."
It's not like Kanye didn't know what he was signing up for when he and Kim got together. Pimping out her children is what Kris does. There's no way Kanye could have actually thought his "relationship" with Kim would somehow be off-limits. So that alone makes this entire report suspect. But how many fans have already lost respect for him as an artist because of his association with the Kardashian-Jenners? If he's worried about his image being ruined, he's probably too late.
But OK! claims that although Kanye is keeping away from Kim's family, "he's not forcing Kim to choose sides."
"It's not like Kanye's forbidding her to see her family," a "relative" tells the mag. "He just wants her to see much more of him since he's her future -- and much less of them, since they are soon going to be her past."
How is that not forcing her to choose? "They are soon going to be her past" -- that definitely sounds like he's "forcing Kim to choose sides," even if he's not explicitly "forbidding" her from seeing her family. That doesn't make any sense. So that and the claim that Kanye was apparently clueless about Kris' famewhore ways make OK!'s report seem pretty sketchy.
What do you think? Is Kanye West forcing Kim Kardashian to choose between him and her family? Is this whole relationship just a publicity stunt? Sound off in the comments!
