Kanye wants Kim to quit TV show

Kanye wants Kim to quit TV show

Kanye West reportedly wants Kim Kardashian to quit her reality TV show.

The rapper has made appearances in 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' but doesn't want to be seen in the series again.

The hip-hop star thinks Kim should walk away from the programme that made her famous and take her career in a different direction.

A source told Life and Style magazine: "Kanye doesn't want to film the show anymore. And he doesn't want Kim to do reality TV either. He's pushing her to stop.

"Kanye wants to be in control of his image, not at the mercy of show producers. The Kardashian show hurts his cool image."

Kim, 32, appears in the show with her mother Kris Jenner, stepfather Bruce Jenner, sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, brother Rob Kardashian, and half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

The series is hugely popular and although Kim is considering taking her boyfriend's career advice, she is worried how her mother Kris - who is also her manager - may react if she left the show.

The source explained: "If Kanye persuades Kim to leave reality TV, Kris will hate him for it. It will rob her family of their income."

Meanwhile Kris Jenner thinks Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are "good together".

The showbiz matriarch is delighted her daughter is dating the rapper because they are "really happy" in each other's company, which has left the mother-of-six thrilled.

She said: "He's a really great guy. He's really great, he's great with Kim. They're really happy, and when your kids are happy you're happy. I think they're good together."

While the 57-year-old reality star is clearly in favour of Kanye, she failed to confirm whether the 'Mercy' hitmaker will be appearing on the Kardashians' traditional Christmas card this year, which features their family pictured on the front and has previously included Kim's sister Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend Scott Disick and Khloe Kardashian's husband Lamar Odom.

Speaking to Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show', Kris said: "I think you're going to just have to wait and get your card.

"Of course there will be a Kardashian Christmas card this year; rest assured everybody there will be a card this year."

Kris admits her and husband Bruce Jenner - who have two daughters together, Kendall, 17, and 15-year-old Kylie - fight "all the time" but they are not planning to get a divorce.

She added: "That is the most ridiculous ... we've been married almost 22 years. We fight all the time. Everybody fights after 21 years, but he kind of stays away, gets to the golf course and tries to stay out of my way."
