Kim Kardashian and Kanye West shocked many when they began dating publicly earlier this year. Although Kim is still technically married to estranged husband Kris Humphries, the reality star claims she has fallen in love with Kanye and is ready to take another shot at marriage. Usually when two celebrities begin a public relationship and start making public appearances together on the red carpet, it’s only a matter of time before they get the “Power Couple” label. But things haven’t gone completely as planned with Kim and Kanye’s power couple status, as the couple has had a couple of embarrassing hiccups in the public eye. Earlier this year, Kanye made a fool out of himself when he went crazy on a female pap for asking Kim about her ex boyfriend Reggie Bush. Although Kanye eventually made up with the pap, insiders say Reggie and his girlfriend found the whole incident hilarious.

Now there are whispers suggesting Kim is hurting Kanye’s career and as a result of dating the rapper, many say Kanye’s brand has taken a hit. A source tells the NY Daily News that Kanye is not too happy that people are more concerned about whether or not his girlfriend shows up to his performances than his actual performance. Nor is he happy about not getting top dollar for upcoming New Years Eve’s concerts unless Kim shows up.

Here’s the report:

“His personal life is overpowering his music,” an industry source says. “Every time he plays, people are wondering if Kim is going to be there. It’s not a good thing for him, especially if he wants to be taken seriously.”

Kardashian is also affecting West’s income. The rapper was offered several opportunities to host New Year’s Eve parties in Vegas and Miami — but only if he would bring Kardashian. West declined the offers.

“Kanye was actually offended by the offers,” says the source.


The source also tells the publication that his performance at the Hurricane Sandy Benefit was so terrible that most people got up and went to the bathroom during his set. It was pretty clear to us that a lot of people did not enjoy Kanye’s performance because he got torn to shreds on the social networks for it.

The same source also claims Kanye is meeting with “top-level music executives” for advice because he’s concerned about the direction his career is going.


  1. I don’t even like Kim but I think Kanye is ruining his own career. His music has gotten terrible, his lyrics are stupid when they used to have substance, and he is too extra when it comes to his attention seeking. He pursued Kim because he wanted the attention. I blame him, not her.

  2. It’s several reasons Kanye has fallen off. Kim is one, but he was falling off before he hooked up with her. I honestly think his mom passed and he just lost it. People overlooked it before because his music was so good. Now it sucks, so people are calling a spade a spade.

  3. I think Kim K and her family should not be allowed back on TV once Kanye breaks up with her. They are disgusting people.

  4. Who didn’t know this? The only people that didn’t see this are the delusional Kimye fans. They are a wack couple and their publicity stunt failed miserably.

  5. Kanye has himself to blame for his career going sour. I used to be a big fan until he sold out music wise. He is a straight up coon, so I don’t listen to him anymore. Nowadays I’m listening to Kendrick Lamar, Nas, and anyone else who can actually rap and has something decent to rap about. I don’t want to hear Kanye brag about his internet porn star girlfriend getting rich off her boring a– tape. I’m too smart to listen to filth.

  6. Kim ruins the stock of any man she dates because there is video of her busting it wide open for Ray-J on the internet. Not only did it cheapened her own reputation and or image, she decided to make money from said video. There’s better ways to make money and create wealth than selling yourself out. I honestly think Kanye and Kim are perfect for each other because both of them are sellouts who will do anything for money and attention. It’s no coincidence that people who used to date them leave and find someone better. They are too shallow to ever know what real love is.

  7. Eh I don’t think Kim is messing up his career. People just don’t like them together. They think Kanye is too good for Kim but he really isn’t, I mean he hasn’t had good taste in women for years.
