Kim Kardashian may still be living under Kris Jenner’s roof, but she won’t be under her professional control for much longer, according to a recent report. Kris, who has played momager to Kim and her siblings for many years, may soon be ousted from her role by none other than Kanye West, who reportedly wants a more active role in directing Kim’s career.
“Kanye is now totally in charge of Kim’s career and his non-stop wheeling and dealing is leaving Kris out of control,” a source close to the couple tells RadarOnline.com.
While Kanye’s got plenty of other projects to prepare for, there’s no task more pressing than to earn his fianceé the respect she needs, even if it means backing away from the spotlight.
“Kanye has managed to get Kim to cut her magazine and media appearances by a shocking level and that’s going directly against Kris’ plan to seize every publicity opportunity offered to her daughters,” says the source.
This is far from the first time Kanye’s taken an aggressive stance on cleaning up Kim’s image. When the couple first started dating, Kanye made the reality star clear out her closets, a controlling move that played out awkwardly on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Despite Kanye’s plan to take the reigns from Kris, the Kardashian matriarch won’t go away that easily.
“Kris loves money, but she can’t be bought out of Kim’s life no matter how much Kanye is helping her ‘get to the next level,’” adds the insider.
Do you think Kim should let Kanye manage her career, or is mixing business with pleasure a recipe for disaster?
