Kim Kardashian & ‘KUWTK’ Kris Jenner Panic Over Kanye West Meltdowns: ‘Damage Control Mode’ Amid Divorce Rumors

Kris Jenner has faced many challenges as the momager of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) clan. Kris has dealt with pouting teenagers, cranky young adults, and even the seemingly suicidal threats from Kourtney Kardashian’s estranged baby daddy, Scott Disick. But when it comes to damage control, Jenner now has to figure out what to do about her son-in-law, Kanye West.

After his Twitter rants and meltdowns have resulted in extremely negative publicity, KUWTK queen Kris has gone into “damage control mode,” a source told Hollywood Life.

Determined to get the rapper to behave, Jenner and the frantic KUWTK clan members are seeking to support the couple amid divorce rumors. But it’s not easy for anyone involved, said the source.

“Family is everything to the Kardashians… they will do everything they can to support him. But behind the scenes, they’re very panicked,” added the source.

Unable to predict what might happen next, Kris and her crew are prepared for battle.

“They’re in damage control mode at this point and they’re desperate to get Kanye back on track. But as long as he’s Kim’s husband, they will stick by him. If she does decide to pull the plug though, it’ll be war,” warned the insider.

Jenner is the queen when it comes to manipulating the media, pointed out the source. And if a split occurs, Kris will immediately rush to defend her daughter.

“When it comes to waging war in the media, there is no one better than Kris and she will have her daughter’s back on this all the way,” added the source. “If they split, [West] is in for a major nightmare.”

In addition to Jenner, Kardashian is seeking her own method of damage control by telling her husband to get therapy. The KUWTK reality TV star and mom of two made the demand that he have therapy in the wake of reports that she was forced to intervene when he had a backstage meltdown before performing on Saturday Night Live, according to sources cited by Woman’s Day.

[The couple are] having big problems that are escalating,” said one source. “Kim has demanded… therapy.”

But the KUWTK clan in general is also worried.

“They think he’s acting totally crazy and don’t know what’s going on,” revealed a Kardashian family insider.

For Jenner in her role as momager, damage to the KUWTK clan brand has become an increasing concern, an insider told Us Weekly.

Kris has devoted years of her life to creating an empire for the Kardashians and Jenner family. And after all that work, the sight of what her son-in-law is doing has created fears.

“[He is] damaging the family brand,” said the insider. “[Kris] really hates his recent behavior [and is] getting really anxious and upset about it.”

Jenner loves her daughter’s husband, but that doesn’t change her horror over his Twitter rants and social media backlash. Most recently, West caused outrage when he alleged that Taylor Swift had known about the infamous lyric in his “Famous” song.

“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/I made that b***h famous,” reads the lyric.

As the Inquisitr reported, Swift retaliated in her Grammy acceptance speech.

“[Some people] will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” slammed the pop star during her speech in a pointed reference to Kanye.

All of this leaves Kris and her daughter seeking a way to rein in the rapper. While Jenner is stressed about the damage to the brand, there’s also the worry about the friction in the marriage.

[Kim] is very concerned and frustrated,” revealed another Us Weekly source.

And although she’s considering divorce, an insider shared with Hollywood Life that the reality TV star is concerned about how it would impact their children, North and Saint.

“When North and Saint grow up they will be able to see everything they have ever done on the internet, all the skeletons in the closet are out so she doesn’t want him adding anything more to the fire,” revealed the insider. “She feels that divorce would be a nightmare because how it would affect the kids!”
