Kanye West and Kim Kardashian may have already collaborated on a music video, a TV show, and a baby, but the rapper’s latest project may be pushing the boundaries of their relationship too far.
Kim, who revealed her desire to do a nude shoot for Playboy on a recent promo for Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is reportedly catching no flack from her privacy-obsessed boyfriend over her decision to strip down for the famed men’s magazine — as long as he’s involved.
A friend of Kanye’s tells HollywoodLife, “Hell yeah, he would go and then he’d make them get out of the room so they could handle some business alone. He likes being in control and I wouldn’t be surprised if he started to direct the whole damn shoot.”
Kanye, who’s already given Kim’s wardrobe an overhaul and has reportedly been the driving force behind her new publicity-shy attitude, apparently has no problems with others seeing his girlfriend in the buff — in fact, he allegedly finds the idea enticing.
“He thinks it’s brilliant,” says the insider. “If Kim wants to do it and if it’s something that’s going to make her happy, he’s all for it.”
“He likes all that sexy s—t Kim be doing. He likes her confidence,” adds the pal. “How many guys out there can say their girl was on the cover of Playboy?”
Tommy Lee, Charlie Sheen, Ice-T, Rod Stewart, Axl Rose, Dave Navarro, Marilyn Manson, Alec Baldwin … well, you get the point.
Do you think it’s a good idea for Kim to do another Playboy shoot? Do you think it’s cute or controlling for Kanye to be involved?
