Kanye ‘offers marriage ultimatum’

Kanye West

Kanye West would reportedly marry Kim Kardashian “tomorrow” if she quit reality TV.

The high-profile pair welcomed daughter North into the world in June. Kanye and Kim apparently have very different outlooks on how they want to raise their child, with rap star Kanye keen to keep their baby out of the spotlight.

Kim – who made her name thanks to reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians – is now said to seriously be considering shunning the series to focus on her relationship with Kanye.

“It sounds dramatic, but Kanye’s told Kim he wants her to quit the show for the sake of their romance, and for the baby. He doesn’t like how invasive the show is on everyone’s personal lives and despite appearing on it for a few brief scenes, he has said he won’t make another cameo,” a source told British magazine Closer.

“He told her that, if she walks away from reality, he’ll marry her tomorrow.”

Other than a couple of Twitter snaps, Kim had been keeping an uncharacteristically low profile since the birth of North. She was finally pictured in Los Angeles last Wednesday alongside Kanye and their baby.

Kim, 32, is said to be “torn” over Kanye’s wishes.

“She wants to give the relationship her best shot, so she’s told Kanye she’s considering it but at the same time, she knows it would hurt her mom [Kris Jenner] if she left the show,” the source continued. “She’s been trying to keep aspects of her personal life off camera. As a new mom, she’s fiercely protective of North. Kanye and North are her priorities and fame and being a celebrity aren’t as important.”

In January – shortly after announcing she was expecting a baby with Kanye – Kim hinted that she’d be making some life changes.

“I think that definitely kicks in where you’re like, ‘OK, I have to go in protect mode,’ and as ironic as it sounds, you live your life on a reality show but then when you grow up… certain things change your life that make you want to be more private and this is definitely one of them,” she said.
