Kanye West has a conniption whenever he gets his own picture taken by the paparazzi. So how do you think he felt when he found out that Kris “Pimp Mama” Jenner went behind his back and showed Kanye’s enemy, “TODAY” host Matt Lauer, a photo of his newborn baby?
Yes, Yeezus went ballistic.
Yeezy and Lauer became enemies when the veteran NBC interviewer went after West in a 2010 “brutal” interview during which producers showed a clip of former President George W. Bush sharing his pain at West calling him a racist for his response to Hurricane Katrina.
So when girlfriend Kim Kardashian‘s momager promised to show Lauer a picture of her granddaughter, the 36-year-old got very riled up behind-the-scenes, an insider revealed to radaronline.com.
Kanye became “absolutely apoplectic with anger because he hates Matt,” the source said.
“Kanye felt extremely disrespected and insulted by Matt and the direction the interview took in 2010 … He was outraged and disgusted that Kris showed Matt a picture of Nori and he is now refusing to speak to her.”
Kanye is already looking at his meddlesome pimp-in-law twisted because of Jenner’s ongoing persistence that baby North West make her public debut on her new talk show.
Lauer even asked Jenner: “You’ve got a tool at your disposal and I want to know right now if you are going to use it. Are there plans in the first week of this show to reveal either photos of the new granddaughter, North, or perhaps a walk-on from Kim, Kanye and North?”
“Well while that’s ambitious, that would be fun,” she told Lauer. “I think you’re just going to have to wait and see and tune in because I’m not sure exactly what’ s going to happen.”
After Kris’ interview was over, “Kim called her mother, at Kanye’s direction, telling her not to show any pictures she had of Nori to anyone. Kim was freaking out because Kanye was so angry. Kris just blew her off and promised she wouldn’t.”
