Kris Jenner Scared Kanye West Is Damaging the Kardashian Brand


Kanye is not just upsetting his wife with his meltdowns and online stunts. Now, momager and mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, is getting wary about his impact on her ability to monetize her family members. West, who has been shopping around for publicists, has allegedly met with some of the top publicists and no one has agreed to work with him. One publicist even went so far to say:

You couldn’t pay us enough to represent Kanye. He’s too much to handle.

This comes as somewhat of a surprise to me. You’re kissing away money. Is no one else aware that Kanye’s entire act is how he makes his money? His controversy is what gets him clicks. A source close to Kanye defended this impression:

He’s a provocateur . . . somebody who stirs up the s - - t. He knows how to generate a lot of interest and curiosity . . . He’s an artist first and foremost . . . The whole Twitter persona is a part of his art.

Kanye West is a lot of things, and it’s certainly not everyone’s taste, but he’s not a dumb man. A black man doesn’t get out of southside Chicago and he certainly doesn’t accumulate a net worth of $145 million by being a dumb man. This is a man who knows how to make money. He either full well understands that all publicity is a good thing or he’s a man that doesn’t get a f**k–either one, or some fusion of both, has made Kanye into the success that he is.

A source close to Page Six shared Jenner’s fears surrounding Kanye’s persona:

His Twitter rants are out of control, and Kris fears that he’s taking the family down. Kris wants Kanye to hire someone to handle all the noise and drama so he can focus on being an artist.

Drama is an art, Kris. Your entire relevance is based upon a propagation of drama. Your brand is drama. Get with it.

Wonder if Mama Ten Percent wants Kanye to hire HER. She’s finagled management contracts with other men even temporarily in her daughters’ lives. Kris Humphries (Kim’s brief husband #2) sealed his fate when he had the audacity to hire someone else for his own PR. Mama Ten Percent was not pleased.
