Kim Kardashian is accustomed to having the spotlight shine on her. But as Kanye West’s Twitter rants have become more frequent and his meltdowns more publicized, Kim is finding that the spotlight has shifted to her husband. Now Kardashian is stressing that all the negative publicity is impacting her and the Kardashian brand, an insider told Radar Online.
As a result, rather than continue to stay silent and allow Kanye freedom to let loose on social media and in public, Kim is seeking ways to take back control.
“Kim and pretty much the entire family are absolutely horrified over Kanye’s recent behavior,” revealed the insider.
It’s not just Kardashian who was perturbed about the lyrics that West wrote concerning Taylor Swift. But when it comes to taking action about his feud with Swift, it’s Kim who is determined to put a halt to his attack, added the source.
“The lyrics on his album are atrocious and his attack on Taylor disgusting. Kim’s now on the warpath and Kanye’s being bullied into submission.”
Kardashian reportedly has warned West that unless he complies with her stipulations, she will leave their marriage, taking the children with her and even banning Kanye from seeing their kids, as well as her family, according to Radar’s insider. To prevent that from happening, Kim wants him to manage his anger and extend apologies to all he’s hurt, including Taylor Swift.
“Kim has actually threatened to walk out on him and said he’ll never see his kids, her or her family again unless he gets his anger under control and apologizes to everyone who’s been hurt, including Taylor,” revealed the insider.
Kardashian feels she’s been put in the role of leading the Kanye clean-up crew. The source also shared that it was Kim who arranged for West and Taylor to meet. But that seemingly peaceful period of, if it not friendship, then frenemy, seemed to have changed to enemies quickly.
“[Kardashian is] sick of cleaning up after his messes and not everyone realizes it was she who orchestrated Kanye’s dinner with Taylor last year,” added the insider.
But West has an unexpected ally on his side, and that’s Kourtney Kardashian. The older sister of Kim, Kourtney feels that her brother-in-law rocks when it comes to those wild tweets, reported Us Weekly.
Kardashian, 36 and the mom of three, honored West after the rapper had fired up another feud on Twitter. This time, his opponent was DJ Deadmau5, who claimed Kanye illegally downloaded the synthesizer software Serum from piracy site The Pirate Bay. The accusation followed West’s tweet of a computer screen with a browser tag indicating he was at that site.
Kanye fired back at the accusation with some entertaining tweets about Deadmau5’s famous mouse headpiece. And Kourtney shared that she was among the fans of his mockery of the mouse fashion.
Not such a fan, however, is Deadmau5, co-founder of the company who makes Serum, noted Us.
“What the f–k @kanyewest… Can’t afford serum? D–k,” tweeted Deadmau5.
Kanye did not clarify why he was on that site but did give his followers, including Kourtney, some entertainment with a series of questions about Deadmau5’s mouse head.
“# ok very serious question,” West began. “# whose job is it to carry the head on the plane # hash tag # do you check the mickey mouse head or carry on # does it get hot?… # ok another super serious question… is there a portable fan situation?”
Keeping it family-friendly, the daddy of daughter North and son Saint even suggested that Deadmau5 might consider helping out with North’s birthday party in one of his Twitter dialogues.
“# I’m bored ### when you get married will your wife have a giant minnie mouse head? # This brightened up my day… thank you dead-mow-five,” tweeted West. “Do you do birthday parties?? My daughter loves Minnie mouse.”
