RadarOnline.com reports that the rapper and his lady are at odds over Kim’s designs for her upcoming baby line because Kanye isn’t too fond of what the reality star is trying to pass off as fashion.
An insider says that Kanye was initially supportive of Kim’s desire to start designing, but soon, his inner anal retentive overtook him.
“He thought it was a great way for her to be taken a little more seriously and cut the cord with her family. He wants her to establish a new career away from reality TV and this is how they think she can do it,” says the source.
“He opened doors for her where they were once shut, which is great, but now he’s giving her his two cents on everything and it’s driving Kim crazy,” claims the insider.
“The truth of the matter is that he doesn’t think Kim has good style and he knows whatever she produces will be a direct reflection on him. He doesn’t trust her to do her own thing.”
Now Kim is trying to reinvent herself once again, and Kanye reportedly wants her to look to his favorite French fashion houses, including Givenchy, Celine, and Lanvin, for inspiration.
However, when Kim suggested that Kanye’s expertise made him the perfect candidate for a full-time fashionista, he allegedly lost his cool. “Nobody, including Kim, speaks to Kanye like that, especially if they don’t want to see his temper. Kanye snapped at her over it,” says the source.
Although Kim is trying to move in slightly more sophisticated circles these days, she doesn’t seem to be sweating her current style report card.
“Kim says she knows her image is pretty set, but she’s hoping that she can play off Nori to move into high-fashion design circles,” says the source. “Kanye’s already helping her to do that, but this would further erase her trashy past and make her even more money at the same time.”
