KIM’S PROM­ISE: ‘I’ll con­sider an­other child – if you stop your out­bursts!’

As rap­per Kanye West vows on so­cial me­dia to avoid court­ing any more con­tro­versy, sources re­veal how his re­al­ity star wife Kim Kar­dashian is be­hind the move

Closer (UK) - - News - By Lily Smith

e’s raised H eye­brows for his con­tro­ver­sial po­lit­i­cal state­ments and jaw-drop­ping out­bursts – but in a dra­matic U-turn last week, Kanye West promised to steer clear of any fur­ther con­tro­versy, Tweet­ing, “I am dis­tanc­ing my­self from pol­i­tics and com­pletely fo­cus­ing on be­ing cre­ative!!!”

As Closer pre­vi­ously re­ported, Kanye’s wife, re­al­ity star Kim Kar­dashian – who was pic­tured on a beach in Bali last week – had be­come in­creas­ingly stressed over his shock­ing com­ments and had been plot­ting how to tone down his alarming be­hav­iour, even telling pals she was go­ing to take con­trol of his so­cial me­dia.

Now sources re­veal that mum-of-three Kim, 38 – who re­vealed on the fam­ily’s re­al­ity show Keep­ing Up With The Kar­dashi­ans last week that her hus­band had been “ha­rass­ing her” for more children – has pre­sented the rap­per with an ul­ti­ma­tum. Sources say that Kim’s told him she will only con­sider hav­ing an­other baby if he reins in his reck­less be­hav­iour, lead­ing to his vow to turn over a new leaf.

SHOCK BE­HAV­IOUR

A source adds, “Kim has been pan­ick­ing about Kanye’s recent er­ratic out­bursts for months, which she knows could have a knock-on ef­fect on her rep­u­ta­tion and ca­reer, as well as their brand as a whole. She’s re­peat­edly tried to con­vince him to be more care­ful of what he says in pub­lic, which he’s failed to do, so now she’s us­ing his ea­ger­ness to have more kids as a bar­gain­ing tool. Kim told him that there’s no way she’s go­ing to even think about hav­ing any more children un­til he starts tak­ing her feel­ings into con­sid­er­a­tion and re­al­is­ing the con­se­quences of his words and ac­tions – and it seems this time he’s ac­tu­ally lis­tened to her.”

Kanye, 41 – who shares children North, four, Saint, two, and ten-month-old Chicago with Kim – has courted scan­dal with his shock be­hav­iour in recent months, such as his sup­port for con­tro­ver­sial US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, as well as claim­ing slav­ery was a “choice” and vis­it­ing the widely dis­liked Pres­i­dent of Uganda Yow­eri Mu­sev­eni, a sup­porter of anti-gay laws.

Dur­ing that visit, Kanye re­vealed to the Ugan­dan pres­i­dent that he wanted “seven children”, de­spite Kim pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ting she “couldn’t han­dle more than four”.

NEW AD­DI­TION

Sources say that Kim is relieved at Kanye’s new pledge to steer clear of con­tro­versy and is now think­ing about how and when she’ll have her fourth child.

The source says, “Kim’s open to the idea of an­other baby and has told fam­ily and friends she’d quite like a fourth child – but she’ll only go ahead when she’s sure Kanye has prop­erly reined in his be­hav­iour.

“Af­ter his pub­lic vow to steer clear of pol­i­tics, she’s feel­ing pos­i­tive and is now even get­ting back in touch with the surrogate mother who car­ried Chicago last year. She’s told ev­ery­one that de­spite all their is­sues, she’d love an­other baby to bring her and Kanye closer than ever.”

The cou­ple are to al­ready par­ents Saint (l-r): Chicago, and North

His sup­port for con­tro­ver­sial US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump gar­nered a lot of crit­i­cism
