Kanye West is done with reality television after his people have repeatedly warned him that this much exposure on TV can’t but be detrimental to his career – and credibility – as a rapper. He’s determined to limit his time on Kim Kardashian’s show as much as possible, says a new report.
Insiders close to the situation tell Radar Online
that Kanye has informed his pregnant girlfriend Kim that he doesn’t want to become a regular on her show.
He’s already made several appearances / cameos on it and it’s more than enough, he believes.
The show’s 8th season is now in production, with Kim saying just the other day that she would still be a part of the project until the 10th season
, when her contract ends, presumably.
“Kanye has made it perfectly clear to Kim that he doesn’t want to appear at all on Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” an insider says.
“He has made several brief appearances on the Kardashian reality shows, but wants nothing to do with future filming. Kanye’s team believes it’s bad for his image and brand to appear on a reality show because it makes him look cheap,” the tipster further shares.
With Kanye being Kim’s boyfriend and baby daddy, it would be impossible for him not to make any appearance on her show, because, if that happened, fans might perceive it as not “real” enough.
So, Kim is now working hard to get him to agree to a few cameos here and there.
“And, Kim isn’t pushing the issue at all as she knows Kanye won’t bend on it. It’s such a departure for Kim because she constantly nagged Reggie Bush when they were dating for him to come on the show. He just refused, and it was one of the reasons why they broke up,” the unnamed source says.
“Kim will probably be able to talk Kanye into doing several cameos, but that will be it,” the insider adds.
