A former bodyguard of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has told Now magazine that the union between the rapper and the reality queen may not be all that it seems.
Mark Behar “reveals the shocking secrets behind their success” in the new report, claiming that Kim and Kanye use their kids for publicity, that their marriage is a business arrangement, and that nothing in the TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians is real. Behar compares the Kardashian women to vultures and says that the competition between them is intense and disturbing.
“Vultures. That’s the only way I can describe these women.”
Mark pointed out that all the men who get involved with the family seem to spiral downward rapidly. Behar claimed that the demanding personalities of the Kardashian women are to blame.
“They take them in, tell them to put their lives in their hands, but once they have no more use for them just throw them out. They eat men alive.”
The pattern of men being burned by the Kardashians has been observed before and even has a name: the Kardashian curse. Hip-hop Wired has provided a list of “men burned by the Kardashians.” The mag notes that Kanye West seems to be the exception to the rule.
“With the exception of Kanye West, these 12 men burned by the Kardashian Curse would’ve been better off smashing women from another family instead of watching their careers end in struggle.”
Behar states that Lamar Odom and Scott Disck’s problems are the direct result of their involvements with Khloe and Kourtney. Scott Disick has been in and out of rehab in recent times, and Lamar Odom was hospitalized after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel last year.
“Mark insists these shocking turn of events are all down to the Kardashian women.”
As for Kim and Kanye, Mark says that the union was initially one of love and affection but has become nothing more than a business arrangement. The bodyguard describes how everything from Kim and Kanye’s wedding, to their kids, to their Vogue cover was/is milked for maximum publicity. Behar states that he doesn’t believe the marriage will last much longer.
“[I]t’s become like a ‘business arrangement… They’re only together now because they’ve had the kids, but I don’t believe their relationship is all about love any more.”
Mark reveals that things came to a head at the VMAs this year. Kim became furious after she spotted Kanye flirting with other women, according to the report.
“They were fighting about Kanye talking to and flirting with other women.”
There are also tensions between Kim and Kylie. Mark claims that the women are all in competition with each other, but the rivalry between Kylie and Kim is particularly fierce. Behar states that Kim is “very aware” that Kylie is the younger and fresher sister and everyone wants a piece of Kylie at the moment.
“Kim and Kylie are in competition, no doubt. Kylie is the fresher version of Kim, the one everyone wants a piece of right now. They’re always comparing themselves – Kim is very aware Kylie is the younger one.”
Mark also confirmed what many have long suspected — everything in Keeping Up With The Kardashians is scripted, according to the report. Behar claimed that storylines are developed with a view to getting sponsorship deals and making more money.
“Not one bit of their lives is real. It’s just all for filming, to make money and get sponsorship deals.”
Kanye may be immune to the Kardashian Curse, but if his marriage with Kim is indeed on the rocks, he could pull away from the family eventually. The Now report states that this is a source of great anxiety to Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner. Kris is apparently worried about what Kanye might do/say if he ever breaks away from the Kardashians.
“Kanye is famous in his own right and he’s the only guy in a long time actually able to combat Kim and Kris.”
