Kanye & Kris Jenner are in a battle for Kim Kardashian’s soul

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Well, kind of. Apparently, Kanye West is pretty ticked off over what happened to Kim Kardashian when she … ‘accompanied’ (let’s call it that) that rich old dude to the Vienna Opera Ball. So much so that he’s demanded that Kim no longer make ‘paid appearances’ (let’s call it that.) But of course Kris Jenner is pissed because she makes money whenever Kim makes a paid appearance, and as her ‘mother’ / ‘manager’ (let’s call it that) she’s trying to pull rank over Kanye. RadarOnline reports …

“It’s not about the money. Kanye told her no more paid appearances. It was selling her soul and not worth it. How much more money does Kim need? It cheapens Kim and her brand to be paid to go to parties,” the source added. We’ve also learned momager Kris Jenner is balking at West’s new demands because she gets a percentage of the paychecks her daughter collects! “Kris gets a 10 percent cut of all deals she brokers on behalf of Kim, which means she made $50,000 off of the Austrian appearance,” the source said. “She is always telling Kim that opportunities to make such big money isn’t always going to be there… her motto is, you have to strike while the iron is hot. So for the meantime, Kris doesn’t have any plans to cancel any of Kim’s upcoming appearances. In fact, she is still booking Kim! Kim is stuck in the middle.”

Hmmmmm, I forget. What is someone called when they arrange for a woman to accompany a rich man in exchange for money, and in turn they take a cut of the profits? I know there’s a word for that. I just know it. Anyway, my point is I’m with Kanye on this one. If only because Kim staying out of the public eye will only decrease her power. I mean, Kris will probably just start promoting Kendall Jenner, and — no, seriously, what is it called again? What is it called when someone forces a young woman to accompany men around so that they can take money from the man? I know there’s a proper term for it! It’s on the tip of my tongue.
