Anybody who’s seen PR mogul Jonathan Cheban's now-defunct reality show, The Spin Crowd, knows he’s the kind of guy who likes to be in control.

A source close to Kim Kardashian’s bestie tells the New York Daily News that Jonathan is giving himself kudos for his reality princess pal hooking up with rapper Kanye West. Kim and Kanye were first spotted acting coupley in early April, and have now all but admitted their relationship status.

Despite the fact that the megastars have been close friends for almost a decade, Kim’s sidekick is reportedly claiming he’s the one who convinced his reality starlet BFF into romancing the hip-hop star.

With Jonathan’s background in PR we have no doubt he saw a wonderful publicity opportunity for his friend. But can he really take all the credit? Well, considering Jonathan’s tumultuous past with Kim’s soon-to-be ex-husband Kris Humphries, we bet he’d encourage his friend to hook up with just about anybody else!
