Kanye West has reportedly proposed to Kim Kardashian on her 33rd birthday (October 21), and she accepted.
The rapper popped the question in front Kim Kardashian’s friends and family at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Monday night, E! Online reported.
Kanye West had attended the Hollywood Film Awards in Los Angeles just hours before, and hopped a plane to the Bay Area to ask Kim Kardashian for her hand in marriage.
According to E! Online, Yeezy rented out the entire stadium (home to the San Francisco Giants) in order to get down on one knee with a “flawless” 15-carat diamond ring from jeweler-to-the-stars Lorraine Schwartz.

He also had a 50-piece orchestra on hand (the playlist included Lana Del Ray’s Young and Beautiful and Kanye’s own Knock You Down) as fireworks and Roman candles lit the sky.
A huge screen at the park urged Kim Kardashian to accept by flashing the message: “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”
Kanye West also made sure he had the green light from Kim Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner. The rapper reportedly asked for her permission before making this Kim Kardashian’s happiest birthday ever.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took their romance public in April 2012, several months after Kim’s infamous split from Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage.
This will be Kim Kardashian’s third marriage and Kanye West’s first. The reality star divorced music producer Damon Thomas in 2004.

According to new reports, Kanye West doesn’t want to marry Kim Kardashian but instead wants them to have a ”modern” relationship.
A source told Radar Online that Kanye West, 36, was heard telling his friends that he felt no need or desire to make their relationship official in the eyes of the law.

Kanye West sees marriage as outdated and doesn’t believe in marrying Kim Kardashian – who turns 33 tomorrow – just because they had baby daughter North together, the source said.
Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West dispelled the idea their so-called rap feud was a publicity stunt during a sometimes uncomfortable appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live show.
Speculation that Kanye West’s anger over a Jimmy Kimmel Live parody skit that mocked him was staged was immediate after Kanye lashed out at Jimmy Kimmel in late September.
Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel said that their beef was authentic during a 30-minute interview on Wednesday night’s show in which the rapper discussed a range of topics including his artistry, paparazzi, family, fashion and the idea of celebrity.
Jimmy Kimmel said early in the interview that he knows Kanye West personally and always found him friendly, but that he seems misunderstood.
“I don’t know if you know this, but a lot of people think you’re a jerk,” Jimmy Kimmel said after Kanye West called himself a genius.
Kanye West was objecting to the idea that he’s “just a celebrity.”
“When you said you think you’re a genius, I think that upsets people,” Jimmy Kimmel said.

“But the truth is a lot of people think they’re geniuses, but nobody says it because it’s weird to say it. But it is most certainly more honest to say, <<I am a genius>>.”
“I’m totally weird and totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate sometimes, and the thing is for me not to say I’m not a genius I’d be lying to you and to myself.”
The fight broke out the day after Jimmy Kimmel hired a child actor to portray Kanye West in a recreation of an interview the rapper gave on BBC Radio 1 in which he discussed the limitations he’s faced as his fame has grown, among many other topics.
Kanye West told Jimmy Kimmel he’s often upset with his portrayal in the media but usually keeps his reaction to himself. This time, though, since he knew Jimmy Kimmel, Kanye West felt he had a license to reach out by phone and discuss his disapproval man to man.
“That elevates sometimes,” Kanye West said.
“Jimmy does his thing, I do my thing, and at some point egos can flare up, and we kind of took it back to high school.”
Jimmy Kimmel showed the highlights from Kanye West’s resulting Twitter rant and admitted he’d just seen a few snippets of the BBC interview before approving the skit and didn’t realize how personal it was.
“I really felt bad about all this stuff, I did,” Jimmy Kimmel said after Kanye West walked on stage.
Kanye West responded: “Mmm huh,” but smiled widely after watching a portion of the skit.
In a sometimes stream-of-consciousness delivery, Kanye West talked passionately about discrimination based on class, protecting his music publishing from covetous drug dealers, false humility and his thoughts on and experience with high fashion. He also ranted against the Hollywood Walk of Fame organization for denying his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, a star and reflected on his recent negative interactions with paparazzi.
Though both denied it was a publicity stunt, Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West did take advantage of the opportunity. A commercial touting Kanye West’s concert tour ran during the show and ABC’s Nightline aired a segment on West in the wake of the appearance.
Kanye West’s appearance went long, pre-empting an appearances by Arctic Monkeys.
Jimmy Kimmel thanked Kanye West for appearing on the show, and West responded: “Thank you for the platform.”
Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to share a second photo of baby North West, on Friday, October 4.
The 4-month-old tyke is completely swaddled and lies upon what appears to be a white fur throw.

As she is back from Paris, Kim Kardashian, 32, wrote: “I missed waking up with my little angel.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, 36, flew from L.A. last Friday to France to check out Paris Fashion Week – and finally debut her post-baby body and fashion sense to cameras in one eye-catching look after another.
This was the first time Kim Kardashian has been away from the baby and the reality star wore a gold “Nori” necklace around her neck while hanging out in Paris.
Jimmy Kimmel addressed Kanye West’s profanity-studded Twitter rant in which he went off on the late-night host in response to a bit from Jimmy Kimmel Live that poked fun at Kanye’s much-talked-about interview with BBC Radio One.
“Quick question,” Jimmy Kimmel kicked off his monologue on Thursday.
“Did anyone else get a very angry phone call from Kanye West about an hour and a half ago? Just me? OK, I didn’t know if he was mad at all of us.”
Picking up the subject again about 15 minutes later, Jimmy Kimmel described the pre-rant call he got from Kanye West.
“He told me I had two choices: apologize publicly…and that was really the only choice!” Jimmy Kimmel said.
“The other choice he gave was that my life – <<Your life>>, he said, <<is going to be much better if you apologize>>. Then he started tweeting today and I don’t even know if I’ve seen some of these tweets, because they’re happening as we speak…”
Then Jimmy Kimmel started going through Kanye’s tweets (which were all in caps), starting with the one that got the ball rolling: “Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years.”
The funnyman continued to parse the tweets, including the one that inquired whether Jimmy Kimmel would like it if Kanye West did a spoof about “your face or you f***ing Ben Affleck.”
“Which, by the way, was a spoof,” Jimmy Kimmel reminded everyone.

“I don’t know if he thought that was news.”
Noting the use of the hash tags “#nodisrespecttobenaffleck” and “#alldisrespecttojimmy kimmel,” Jimmy Kimmel cracked: “A lot of hash in those tags.”
“And he told me this on the phone, I swear,” he continued>
“He said, <<I am the most powerful voice in media. I am ‘Pac!>> He said <<I am ‘Pac>> a few times to me. He said, <<You’ll never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old’s high school football game and be cool again>>.
“He really is ‘Pac,” Jimmy Kimmel said, smiling but looking a bit baffled.
“That’s right out of the Tupac playbook, isn’t it?”
“I don’t understand it, I don’t know why he’s angry again,” Jimmy Kimmel continued.
“I thought the bit was pretty innocuous. Finally I’m in a rap feud.”
“Do you have my back?” he asked side-kick Guillermo, who promised, while munching on a snack, to watch his boss’ back.
“Right now we’re at Def-Kanye Five,” Jimmy Kimmel concluded.
“Thanks, Kanye, appreciate it.”
Jimmy Kimmel promised to keep us posted and all remains quiet on the Twitter front for now.
Kanye West got angry after Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s recent parody of the lengthy, in-depth interview the rapper gave to BBC’s Radio One, in which he referred to himself as the “No. 1 rock star on the planet” and delved into various personal topics.
Kanye West, 36, took to Twitter to slam Jimmy Kimmel’s action: “JMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS.”
“JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON’T TAKE IT AS A JOKE… YOU DON’T HAVE SCUM BAGS HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER,” the rapper continued.
“YOU CAN’T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY…IS THAT FUNNY?…OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD BE FUNNY???”
The spoof that angered Kanye West featured a little boy reciting actual snippets of the artist’s interview while fiercely sipping a milk shake in between sound bites.
“I brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said <<no>>!” little Kanye exclaimed in the “Kanye Kid Re(Kreation)”
“How many [bleep] you seen with leather jogging pants? Where the culture at? Where is the culture at?!”

Kanye West went on: “SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F***ING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!”
Instead, Jimmy Kimmel appeared to fully enjoy reaping what he had sowed.
“apparently @KanyeWest is VERY VERY ANGRY with me….” Jimmy Kimmel tweeted when he first got wind of Kanye West’s rant.
“if it’s not too much trouble @kanyewest, would you mind using @jimmykimmel? Thanks”
Kanye West continued: “I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY’S WEDDING.”
Jimmy Kimmel replied: “I like you too! Glad we cleared this up.”
But Kanye West didn’t stop: “WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN’T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES AGO, YOU MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERF***ER.”
Jimmy Kimmel then swatted back with: “I know! #WreckItRalph, right?!” when Kanye West jabbed at him with: “SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!”
Then Kanye West started tweeting pictures, one of which Jimmy Kimmel duly retweeted.
“I swear, @kanyewest one more of these I WILL unfollow you #warning #Goshdarnit,” Jimmy Kimmel wrote.
Kanye West has been charged with battery and attempted theft over a fight with photographer Daniel Ramos at Los Angeles Airport in July.
Paparazzo Daniel Ramos sued Kanye West after the singer apparently punched him and threw his camera to the ground.
Lawyers for Kanye West said he had only been trying to prevent the photographer from taking his picture.
If found guilty, Kanye West faces a maximum penalty of six months in prison.
Kanye West has been charged with battery and attempted theft over a fight with photographer Daniel Ramos at Los Angeles Airport in July
Prosecutors refused to press more serious felony charges because the alleged victim sustained only minor injuries.
The altercation took place on July 19 when several paparazzi, including Daniel Ramos, were waiting for the rapper’s arrival at the airport.
A video posted on celebrity news website TMZ purported to show Kanye West appearing visibly irritated by the photographers’ presence.
He is then said to have lunged at Daniel Ramos and tried to seize his equipment.
“When Kanye West attacked me, I was in complete shock,” Daniel Ramos told reporters.
“All I had done was ask him a question. I was terrified when Kanye started to come at me. I backed up because I felt from the look in his eyes that he was going to attack me.”
Daniel Ramos added that he had been forced to use crutches and a cane after the incident.
Kanye West’s arraignment has been set for October 10.
The first photo of North West, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby daughter, was finally revealed on Friday during an interview with the rapper on Kris Jenner’s chat show.
And it appears the tiny girl possesses both her mother and father’s looks.
With her almond-shaped eyes, full head of hair and full pout, little North West looks very similar to Kim Kardashian when she was a baby.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby girl also has predominant cheeks, similar to her father.
In his highly-publicized sit down with Kris Jenner, Kanye West said: “I pray that she looks like her mother when she’s older.”
However, Kris Jenner told the rapper that she thought North West was the perfect combination of both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
It appears baby North possesses both her mother Kim Kardashian and father Kanye West’s looks
“I think she is an amazing combination of the two of you. She is so adorable. She has Kim’s eyes, I think she has your cheeks and both of your lips. Some days she has your lips and some days she has Kim’s lips,” Kris Jenner gushed.
“They dissect her,” the chat host and North West’s grandmother explained to the audience.
“Kim would go <<Look at her ears mom, look at her ears!>>. It is so cute how obsessed you guys are.”
Whether or not she looks more like her mother or her father, there is no doubt that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s little cherub shares the same strong genes as the rest of the Kardashian clan.
Dark hair and almond-shaped eyes is a feature that is predominant in many members of the famous family.
Sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian all have flowing brunette tresses, brown eyes and long eye lashes.
Kourtney Kardashian’s three-year-old son Mason whom she shares with partner Scott Disick, also possesses strong Kardashian genes, however her one-year-old daughter Penelope looks a little more like her father with her fairer hair and facial features.
Meanwhile, a flashback to baby pictures of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West show the now famous identities looking just as cute as their daughter North.
Kanye West has finally revealed the first picture of his and Kim Kardashian’s baby daughter North West on matriarch Kris Jenner’s show.
During an interview with the excited grandmother, proud new father Kanye West, 36, shared baby North’s photo with the audience and millions of viewers across America.
A snap of baby North flashed up on the screen after Kanye West and Kris Jenner sat down to discuss the new addition to the family.
“How cute is that gorgeous baby!! Who do you think she looks like?” Kris Jenner gushed over the snap, to which Kanye West responded with a laugh: “I pray that she looks like her mother when she’s older.”
Kris Jenner told the rapper that she thought her granddaughter was an “amazing combination” of both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
“I think she is an amazing combination of the two of you. She is so adorable. She has Kim’s eyes, I think she has your cheeks and both of your lips. Some days she has your lips and some days she has Kim’s lips,” Kris Jenner said.
“They dissect her,” she explained to the audience.
“Kim would go, <<Look at her ears mom, look at her ears!>> It is so cute how obsessed you guys are.”
Before revealing the snap to the world, Kanye West categorically denied that he and Kim Kardashian had tried to shop first images of their daughter to the media.
“It’s all this talk about baby pictures and <<can you get paid for the baby picture or do you want to put it on a magazine>>,” he explained.
“And for me and your daughter we have not attempted to get paid for anything, we have not attempted to put it on a magazine.”
Kanye West said he decided to share the cute image of his baby on Kris Jenner’s show because he wanted to please little North’s grandmother.
“You just stop all of the noise and I thought it would be really cool on her grandmother’s season finale to bring a picture of North,” he said.

It was then when Kanye West shared the snap, much to the delight of a cheering audience.
During the interview, Kris Jenner asked Kanye West whether he hopes baby North will follow in her father’s footsteps and become a “rapper”.
Kanye West told her that he and Kim Kardashian would be encouraging their daughter to make her own decisions.
“I am going to give her the opportunity to develop her different skill sets and then decide what she is the best at,” he explained.
“…and we will give her the support and let her follow what she loves the most.”
Kanye West had previously hinted that he didn’t want his child to be in the spotlight, declaring: “This isn’t America’s baby.”
It seems the rapper had a change of heart and decided to share the image of baby North in a bid to boost Kris Jenner’s TV ratings.
Kim Kardashian, 32, didn’t make an appearance on the show but Kanye West shared several romantic pictures from their private album.
Before he showed off the new addition to the family, Kanye opened up about his precious daughter.
He told Kris Jenner that that she will give him a lot of stability in his life.
“To me it is such a blessing. I feel it is going to give me the stability that I need to really create and do god’s work,” Kanye West explained.
“She [North] is someone to be accountable for and responsible for.”
It had been widely reported that Kanye West had struggled with the loss of his mother Donda when she died of complications from cosmetic surgery in 2007.
He also revealed to Kris Jenner the depths of despair he went through, telling her that he “felt like he had nothing to live for”.
But he said his saving grace came in the form of Kim Kardashian and the couple’s new baby girl.
Kanye West explained that before Kim Kardashian came along he was constantly “putting his life at risk”.
“After I lost my mother, there were times… well I put myself at risk,” he said.
“I felt like sometimes I didn’t have something to live for.”
Kanye West explained that everything changed when Kim Kardashian came into his life.
Not long after the pair confirmed they were dating, they also found out they were expecting a child.
Little North West arrived into the world on June 15 and Kanye West said that his new family has transformed him.
“Now I have two really special people to live for. A whole family to live for. A whole world to live for,” Kanye West said during the emotional interview.
Kanye West is being sued by photographer Daniel Ramos, who says the singer attacked him at Los Angeles International Airport.
Daniel Ramos, who was one of the paparazzi waiting for the rapper on July 19, says he was punched by Kanye West and was wrestled to the ground.
The lawsuit claims Daniel Ramos was a victim of assault, battery and negligence and that his civil rights were violated.

“I told him twice, <<I don’t want to fight you>>,” Daniel Ramos said.
“However, he attacked me anyway.”
Last week LA’s district attorney decided not to prosecute Kanye West, saying Daniel Ramos didn’t have a significant injury.
The rapper is due to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) this weekend for a record seventh time.
Kanye West will showcase his single Black Skinhead at the event on August 25 at Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York.
According to new reports, baby North West is about to make her big debut on her grandmother show.
E! Online reported that Kanye West is set to stop by the Kris Jenner’s daytime talk show on Friday and he’s making one unforgettable appearance.
According to audience members who attended the taping earlier this week, Kanye West proudly shows off a picture of his baby daughter with Kim Kardashian for the world to see.
One eyewitness tells E! News: “North is very beautiful. She has big cheeks, a lighter complexion than Kanye, but closer to Kanye’s color than Kim’s. She has straight black hair and almond eyes just like Kim. She has a round face and is really cute.”
“North was lying in a bed on her stomach [in the pic], she was wearing a dark onesie,” the insider added and explained that neither parent was in the snapshot of the little one.

And when asked why he decided to reveal the first photograph of his daughter on the show, the eyewitness said: “[Kanye West] said he had decided he wanted to show the picture of North because they didn’t want to make money on the photo and he is fed up of paps following him around.”
Kanye West also said that the wants to raise Nori to “be a normal kid,” and photographers add extra pressure for the new father.
This will mark the first time that the world has seen baby North West, as well as mark her debut on the small screen.
While Kanye West only showed off the snapshot momentarily, reports claim that Nori’s mug will be shown on the screen during the airing of the show for much longer.
Kanye West also gushed about “being in love with [Kim Kardashian] from the moment he met her,” according to the eyewitness.
“He said he always wanted to be with her and that they were the perfect match.”
It was announced Monday that Kanye West would be making a guest appearance on Kris show.
New reports claim that Kim Kardashian was first pictured with baby North ten days ago at the funeral of Kanye West’s grandfather.
The couple took their baby daughter to Oklahoma to say farewell to Portwood Williams Senior, who died at the age of 98 on August 10.
Kim Kardashian dressed respectfully in all black, wearing a high necked ruffled dress and covering her arms with a long sleeved crocheted cardigan.
On her feet were simple silver heels, while she wore her hair loose and layered around her face.
Kim Kardashian carried baby North, holding her close against her chest under a grey shawl as they left the ceremony surrounded by a crowd of mourners.
Just North’s feet could be seen, sticking out under the blanket in a tiny pair of socks.
But a fellow guest at the ceremony revealed the baby was wearing white.

“She’s got a head full of hair and a beautiful olive skin tone,” they told Radar.
A second source added: “She looks like Mason did when he was a baby. They even have the same eyebrows.”
While Kanye West is known for his love of high fashion, he dressed appropriately in a smart black suit with navy blue shirt.
It was the very first trip away from home for little Nori, who was born in Los Angeles on June 15.
And while the occasion was a sad one, it is sure to have been a welcome chance for Kanye West to introduce his only child to her extended family.
While his mother, Dondra, died aged 58 following plastic surgery in 2007, Kanye West rapper remains in close contact with her family, visiting regularly.
And although North sadly missed the chance to meet her great-grandfather, Portwood Williams did previously meet Kanye West’s famous girlfriend – and give her his blessing.
Back in February Portwood Williams voiced his approval for Kanye West’s girlfriend, calling her “beautiful”.
He added: “And she’s just as sweet as she is beautiful. That’s what I liked about her!”
Showing she shares Kanye West’s sense of duty, Kim Kardashian chose to miss her little sister Sweet Sixteen to support her boyfriend at the funeral.
While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were unable to join Kylie Jenner on Saturday night, they did send Kanye’s hip-hop chums Drake and Big Sean along to entertain the teen on her big night.
Kim Kardashian made her first appearance in public as a mother after giving birth to baby North West eight weeks ago.
And while she kept her style dressed down and sober, Kim Kardashian sure let her accessories do the talking.
Not for Kim Kardashian the everyday nappy bag from Cath Kidston. For her first appearance en famille with baby North and Kanye West, Kim Kardashian toted a $30,000 Hermes bag, stuffed full, no doubt, with Swarovski pacifiers, Dior baby bottles and cashmere babygros.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s matching bracelets
But more striking than the Hermes nappy bag were the matching moccasin boots that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were sporting.
Eschewing heels for once, Kim Kardashian wore on her feet a pair of tan fringed Minnetonka boots in suede – and Kanye West wore his own black fringed pair.
It is no secret that the two have long been performing a sort of style merge.
Ever since the two began dating in the first half of 2012, Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe began to go through something of a metamorphosis – and Kanye West made no secret of the fact that he was behind it.
Kim Kardashian finally stepped out for the first time since giving birth to daughter North West.
Kim Kardashian, who has not been seen in public since North was welcomed into the world eight weeks ago, looked radiant for the outing alongside Kanye West in Los Angeles.
And while she is said to have been battling insecurities over her post-baby body, Kim Kardashian, 32, appeared confident as she showed off the results of the rigorous exercise and diet regime she has been following to already lose 30 lbs.
Clearly more concerned about her daughter than worrying too much about make-up, Kim Kardashian went for a natural complexion and left her raven hair loose and tousled.

Completing her look, Kim Kardashian showed she has been splurging on baby accessories as she carried perhaps the most stylish baby bag in existence – a huge black Hermes Birkin bag.
Kim Kardashian finished off her look with a pair of fringed boots, which matched Kanye’s in everything but color.
But while Kim Kardashian might not have been too concerned about her appearance, Kanye West played the stylist as he helped his girlfriend perfect her look before she stepped out in front of the cameras.
Kanye West, 36, turned his eye to Kim Kardashian’s ensemble, eyeing her up and down to check she looked the part after he artfully tied a jumper around her waist.
The couple were joined by a nanny, who took charge of carrying the little girl in her baby seat.
As pictures of the little girl have yet to be seen, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West opted to cover the seat in a pale blanket in a bid to prevent anyone from sneaking a peek.
It has been claimed Kanye West, who has rejected offers of up to $3 million from magazines for images of his daughter, is trying to convince his good friend Anna Wintour to put Kim Kardashian and baby North on the cover of Vogue – even though the editor-in-chief doesn’t like the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.
Kim Kardashian claimed that she was unable to attend little sister Kendall Jenner’s sweet sixteen over the weekend because she couldn’t find a babysitter for her baby daughter North West.
However, a new report in Us Weekly suggests that Kim Kardashian, whose famous figure has helped build her a multi-million dollar empire, is still too self conscious to reveal her post-pregnancy figure.
Sources close to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West say the 32-year-old, who is already said to have lost 30 lbs, is still attempting to lose another 30 off her frame.
And until she reaches that goal, fans of buxom beauty will not be seeing Kim Kardashian anytime soon.
The new mother has reportedly refused to step out in public until she looks “hot”.
“She’s extremely self-conscious about her current body,” a source told Us Weekly.
“She said when she comes out and gets photographed for the first time, she wants to look hot, hot, hot.”
While Kim Kardashian has already shed an impressive 30 lbs from her post-pregnancy frame, it is said that her weight loss has now slowed down and she is now “obsessed” to get to the final stretch.
Kim Kardashian refuses to go back into the spotlight until she reaches 115 lbs goal weight
“The weight is not coming off as quickly. She plateaued. This is the hard part now,” another Kardashian source told Us Weekly.
“She’s always complaining about her size. She says she hates looking this way and won’t go out again until she is skinnier,” a pal of Kanye West added to the magazine.
In order to get camera ready, Kim Kardashian has reportedly enlisted the aid of a trainer who visits her at her mother Kris Jenner’s home five times a week.
She is also said to be on an extremely strict diet.
While she cooks “homemade fried chicken and mac ‘n’ cheese” for Kanye West, a chef is apparently cooking Kim Kardashian low-calorie dishes such as grilled lemon chicken.
One source told the magazine that Kim Kardashian believes it will be several more weeks before she reaches her goal weight of 115 lbs and it is only then when she will make her big reveal to the world.
“She thinks it will take her at least another month and a half to get to where she wants to be,” a source told the magazine.
“Only when she’s there will she start thinking about showing her body to the world.”
In the interim, one of her biggest supporters, rapper Kanye West, continues to try and boost her body confidence by heaping praise on the reality star.
“Kanye tells her she’s beautiful. He wants to boost her confidence and goes out of his way so she doesn’t have to ask. But it wears Kanye out to hear her being down on herself.’”
One thing that is keeping her mind off her post-pregnancy figure is her precious baby North West.
Kim Kardashian, who friends and family say has taken to motherhood like a duck to water, is relishing in her new role.
According to Us Weekly, Kim Kardashian is already having a ball dressing her little girl up in designer clothing.
“[North] already had an incredible wardrobe,” a Kardashian insider told the magazine.
“She wears Roberto Cavalli and also has such beautiful jewelry – rubies, pearls, diamonds, everything.”
New reports claim Kanye West thinks Vogue could benefit from putting baby North in its prestigious fashion pages.
Much like Suri Cruise’s famous Vanity Fair cover, the music icon wants his two-month old daughter to meet world on his terms – something he reportedly believes could be mutually beneficial to Anna Wintour.
“It’s no secret that Kanye is a huge fan of fashion, Vogue and especially Anna Wintour,” a source close to Kanye West told RadarOnline.
“But it’s also pretty well-known that Anna is no fan of Kim, or any reality star appearing in the pages of the magazine.”
The source continued: “Kanye is determined to make sure baby North isn’t photographed by paparazzi then splashed across the world.
“He knows what he wants — a professional photographer and the cover of Vogue – nothing else. But clearly, trying to persuade Anna is going to be an uphill battle.”
While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expected to release the first photos of North West via Twitter, the rapper apparently wants her first ever photo shoot to be in Vogue – and it seems the Grammy-winning artist isn’t taking no for an answer, despite receiving a “less than enthusiastic” response from Anna Wintour.
Kim Kardashian scored high-fashion points when she graced the cover of the L’Uomo Vogue
Ensuring that he has every aspect of his argument covered, Kanye West has reportedly compiled new fashion magazine statistics that show reality stars on the cover can make sales soar.
According to the New York Times, the April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine featuring Kim Kardashian was its best-selling, with 1.2 million copies being plucked from newsstands.
And last year, Kim Kardashian scored high-fashion points when she graced the cover of the L’Uomo Vogue, the magazine’s Italian men’s edition.
But that issue’s success might not be enough to sway Anna Wintour to give the West-Kardashain family an American Vogue cover.
Three months ago Vogue editors famously cropped Kim Kardashain out of its Met Ball Best Dressed gallery when she appeared next to a Sauvé looking Kanye West wearing a universally mocked floral print Givenchy gown.
Nevertheless, it seems “Kanye is convinced that he’s going to make this happen”, said the source.
A Vogue spokesperson denied the claims.
Meanwhile it seems Kim Kardashian, who has only posted a few tweets and made one taped appearance on Kris Jenner’s show since giving birth on June 15, has sent her hardworking public relations representative on a hiatus.
The New York Post reported that Kim Kardashian has no need for publicist, Jill Fritzo, now that she is busy with North.
Kanye West bought two high-performance armored vehicles to protect Kim Kardashian and their baby daughter North.
Kanye West, 36, and partner Kim Kardashian, 32, were recently singled out by President Barack Obama for their opulent lifestyle warping the American dream.
Inspired by the President’s Limo One, Kanye West has reportedly spent $1.2 million each for two Prombron Iron Diamonds by Dartz Motorz.
Dartz Motorz is the Latvian company that angered PETA for featuring leather interior made from the foreskin of a whale p**is.
On the Dartz website, the Iron Diamond is said to prevent kidnapping, hijacking and “other problems which can meet rich and lonely lady on the street”.

Kanye West’s two-month-old daughter Nori should rest easy inside the super-SUV “built to withstand attacks from landmines and rocket-propelled grenades”.
“Kanye is fully aware that his new family is so high-profile they attract the attention of weirdos and psychopaths,” a source told the Daily Star.
“He aims to leave nothing to chance…His priority is to get delivery of the vehicles, especially Kim’s, before he begins his US tour in October.”
The 21-time Grammy winner apparently decided to beef up security for his family at Jay Z’s suggestion.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will also reportedly employ two bodyguards and use body doubles as decoys for paparazzi.
The source ominously added: “If there have been any kidnapping threats already against their daughter, he isn’t saying. But that fear is clearly in his mind.”
According to Us Weekly, Kanye West “doesn’t leave North for more than an hour” and he tenderly “holds the baby all the time”.
Kanye West’s new album Yeezus debuted at number one in 31 countries, but due to lack of promotion the overall sales have been disappointing.
Kris Jenner fired back at Barack Obama after he criticized Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for their opulent lifestyles.
Kris Jenner, 57, during her Kris show on Friday said she disagreed with President Obama that Kim and Kanye have been influencing the younger generation to be obsessed with wealth and money.
Barack Obama, 52, in a recent Kindle Singles interview bemoaned the “change in culture” that has warped the American Dream and referenced the E! network’s popular Keeping Up With The Kardashians show.
“There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” Barack Obama said of his time growing up.
“Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success,” said the president, who has twice referred to Kanye West in the past as a jackass.
Kris Jenner countered that she thought it was admirable that people, including a high school graduate such as herself, aspired to obtain great jobs.
“But, I wasn’t aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big,” Kris Jenner told the sympathetic studio audience.

Kris Jenner chided the Columbia University and Harvard Law School graduate for pointing out that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West live in a 10,000-square-foot house.
“I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and he probably wouldn’t mind going over there when asking them to have a party for campaigning for dollars to run for president,” Kris Jenner said.
Kris Jenner also thought it was strange that Barack Obama was singling out Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
“I find it so odd that he’s picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Well, Kanye West, first of all, doesn’t go on vacation. Ever,” Kris Jenner said.
“And Kim Kardashian is the hardest-working young lady in the world. She never sleeps, she never stops, she never slows down and works so hard for what she’s got,” she added.
Kris Jenner also drew a comparison between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s 10,000-square-foot mansion, noting that Barack Obama, “if she’s not mistaken”, lives in the 55,000-square-foot White House.
She also defended the Keeping Up With The Kardashians empire for employing hundreds of workers on the reality show.
It’s not the first time that Barack Obama has hard harsh words for Kanye West.
After the singer upstaged Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Barack Obama famously called him a jackass in an interview.
In the May issue of The Atlantic, Barack Obama said he prefers rapper Jay-Z over Kanye.
The president acknowledged liking Kanye West and the singer’s Chicago roots, but stood by his earlier characterization.
“He is a jackass,” Barack Obama said.
“But he’s talented.”
The whole world is waiting for baby North West’s picture.
However, since giving birth to her first child on June 15, Kim Kardashian hasn’t even been seen in public, let alone given any small glimpse of her bundle of joy – except in those fake photos she sent out.
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West have reached a decision and rejected a lucrative seven-figure magazine offer to instead follow the lead of close pals Jay Z and Beyoncé – by releasing the first pic themselves through social media.
It had been reported that Kim Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner had been close to closing a deal worth as much as $4 million – the profits from which were said to be being donated to charity.
However, TMZ reports that a high-end publication, such as Vanity Fair, may still be in the running.

Just three days after welcoming baby daughter North West, US News first reported that Kanye West was dead against the idea of “pimping out” his child.
Kanye West, 36, is said to be staunchly opposed to reality TV shows such as the one that made his “baby mama” a household name, calling them “demeaning”.
Although he’s previously made several appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kanye West insists he won’t be returning due to the backlash he received.
As reported by US News, Jo Piazza, author of Celebrity Inc: How Famous People Make Money, says: “[Kanye West] furiously does not want these pictures sold to the world. He doesn’t like the idea of pimping his child, even though he is quite good at pimping out himself.”
This isn’t the first time the couple has chosen not to reap the monetary benefits when it comes to their child.
On December 30, Kanye West made the announcement that 32-year-old Kim Kardashian was expecting live onstage during his concert in Atlantic City.
Now it is expected that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will make a similarly spontaneous move with the photos of their first child.
Kim Kardashian seems happy to keep the world waiting by having a little fun before she reveals daughter North West.
Posting a picture on her Facebook page of herself cradling a newborn, with sister Kourtney cooing beside her, Kim Kardashian set the rumor mill in motion by commenting: “Love these precious moments…”
At last, the world thought they were glimpsing the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for the very first time after her birth in June.
“Enough, we all know it’s not your baby Kim,” Kathy Jimenez commented, while Carla C. Aguilera Mantovani confirmed: “It’s Mason!”
And on closer inspection it became more obvious that these perceptive fans were correct in identifying the baby as Mason Disick, the son of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick.
The baby in the “fake-out” photograph was wrapped in a blue blanket, indicating it was a boy in the picture, and Kim Kardashian looked significantly slimmer than she might be expected to be after giving birth a month ago.

Some fans however, did not see the funny side of the joke.
Anabel Ibarra Covarrubias posted: “Enough kim!! We already know this is not ur baby north west !! … U want millions of dollars just to see ur baby ? C’mom … Ur baby worth that money? Cuz i dont think so !!!”
This isn’t the first time Kim Kardashian has fooled people into thinking they were seeing a picture of her newborn.
Shortly after the birth on June 15, TMZ reported that Kim Kardashian had text pictures of various babies who were not her daughter to a number of friends in a bid to discover whether they could be trusted.
As the first picture of North West will be worth a vast amount of money, it is said that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wanted to see whether any of their friends would try to sell the fake picture.
Unfortunately for Kim Kardashian and her family, it appeared that their worries were not baseless as one recipient attempted to sell the photo to at least one news outlet.
Although we have only seen one picture of Kim Kardashian herself since the birth – a shot her sister Khloe shared via Instagram showing the new mother sleeping – Radar Online reported that Kim has been spotted out and about in Southern California, though keeping a low profile and avoiding the paparazzi.
A source also told the gossip website that “Kim is excited to have the whole world see her baby”.
However, fiercely protective Kanye West has made it clear that his baby girl “isn’t America’s baby”.
Fans shouldn’t have to wait too long though – it is rumored that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are considering a $2 million magazine deal that will debut baby North to the world.
Jonathan Cheban has been one of the few people to be by Kim Kardashian’s side since the birth of baby North West.
Jonathan Cheban has revealed what’s in been like hanging out with Kim Kardashian and her six-week-old daughter, which he has described as looking “delicious”.
Speaking at the QVC Super Saturday event in the Hamptons, Jonathan Cheban gushed to Extra about baby North West, saying: “She’s gorgeous, she’s amazing.”
He also revealed that Kim Kardashian has taken to motherhood like a duck to water, saying: “Every time I’m on the phone with her, she’s with the baby. She’s always feeding her or playing with her… she really took it and ran with it.”
Jonathan Cheban added: “She’s a great, great mom.”
Talking about losing her baby weight, Jonathan Cheban said: “Knowing Kim, I’m sure she looks 80% at this point, she’s pretty much perfect.”

When asked if the baby looks more like Kim Kardashian or Kanye West, Jonathan Cheban replied: “It’s a split. She’s delicious, that’s all I can say.”
Although he admitted that he will babysit for Kim Kardashian, Jonathan Cheban point blank refused to change any diapers.
He also said that the proud parents are “obsessed” with their “kid” North, and remarked how the unusual name was better than naming it “something like a Jen or a Lisa”.
As well as getting visits from her BFF Jonathan Cheban, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are also said to have been visited by Jay-Z recently.
Jay-Z, 43, was spotted eating at ultra trendy gourmet restaurant Gjelina in Venice Beach, California, on Sunday after he was said to have paid a visit to Kanye West and baby North.
Earlier this month it was revealed that Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce splurged on nearly $8,000 worth in gifts on the newborn child.
The famous couple were also among some of the first non-family members to catch a glimpse of North, due to Jay-Z’s long-time friendship with Kanye West.
Among the gifts Jay-Z and Beyonce gave to the then two-week-old North West were personalized Christian Dior baby booties and a three-piece sterling silver Elsa Peretti Padova baby set with the tot’s name on, according to reports.
A source said: “Kanye is one of Jay-Z’s closest friends so he wanted to get the best gift. They’ve had a girl themselves, so they know the right type of present.”
Meanwhile it has been reported that Kim Kardashian is getting ready to step back into the limelight for the first time since giving birth, in less than two weeks.
Kim Kardashian is apparently keen to attend her sister Kylie Jenner’s Sweet 16 party on August 17.
But in order to avoid overshadowing the teen Kim Kardashian is plotting on making her public debut a few days prior, according to new reports.
Kim Kardashian is said to be discussing making a carefully choreographed appearance on her mother Kris Jenner’s new chatshow.
New reports claim that Kanye West may face a felony attempted robbery charge stemming from his Los Angeles airport altercation on Friday with a photographer.
Kanye West, 36, charged a paparazzo who was peppering him with questions upon his arrival at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday.
The photographer was taken to a hospital following the assault and told authorities that he wants to press charges against Kanye West, TMZ reports.
Police officers will refer the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office as a felony attempted robbery rather than the lesser charge of battery, according to the website.
The case has been transferred to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Division for investigation as police suspect Kanye West committed an attempted robbery when he struck the photographer and tried to take his camera. Prosecutors will ultimately decide which charges will be filed, if any.

Kanye West was surrounded by about five paparazzi who captured the incident and the singer left with his bodyguard in their car.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Airport Police said in a statement to X17online: “Today at approximately 2:00 p.m., at the Tom Bradley International Terminal [on the arrival level curbside], Los Angeles Airport Police officers were flagged down by a citizen [photographer] who alleged that he was taking pictures of an individual when he was battered by the subject.”
“The alleged subject was not at the location nor was he observed by officers at the scene.”
The statement added: “LAFD was notified, responded to the location and transported the victim to a local hospital for medical attention. A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing.”
Kanye West has made no secret of his contempt for photographers and just last week he went on a furious rant while at the same airport after a snapper complimented his music.
“Don’t talk, don’t talk to me,” he said in the outburst while grabbing the camera.
However, Kanye West appears to be completely oblivious to the fact that his girlfriend and mother of his child, Kim Kardashian is a reality star who has made her name through constantly being photographed and followed by cameras.
Kim Kardashian, 32, and her family have allowed camera crews into their homes since their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians became a hit in 2007 following her tape scandal.
Since then, all members of the family have relied on reality television to acquire fame, actively seeking out press and publicity to enhance their careers.
However, it seems that Kanye West has had trouble adjusting to the lifestyle.
Sadly for the Kardashians, Kanye West’s violent outburst took place on the same day that Kim Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner insisted that the rapper does not have a temper.
