Kris Jenner and Ryan Seacrest Are Behind Kanye West’s Bid for American Idol Judge: Report

Kris Jenner is apparently so thrilled with daughter Kim Kardashian’s relationship that she’s willing to extend her special momager influence in order to snag Kanye West a new gig.

According to Hollywood Life, the mom of seven is working hard to make sure Yeezy lands a spot at the judge’s table on American Idol.

Sources say that Kris, along with Idol host Ryan Seacrest, have both been pulling strings to ensure that Kanye gets the judging job, which would be huge if Kim and Kanye were to have their own show in the future.

“Kris knows this would do wonders for Kim and Kanye’s new reality show and bring in the biggest ratings ever,” said an insider.

So maybe the Kardashian matriarch isn’t trying to help Kanye’s career out of the kindness of her heart after all.

“Kris has been working with Ryan Seacrest behind the scenes to make this happen,” the source adds. “It was actually Ryan’s idea in the first place and he produces all the Kardashian shows for E! So if [Kanye] became a judge on American Idol, it would be a win-win for everyone!
