Kim Kardashian 'Is Hurting Kanye West's Career' By 'Insisting On Joint Appearances'

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be pretty much joined together at the hip, but it seems like spending so much time with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star may be jeopardising Kanye's career, sources say.

Although Kanye's still successful work-wise, it seems like the reality star may be overpowering the rapper and his popularity has already 'started waning' according to Confidenti@l.

“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, it seems. The rapper was offered several opportunities to host New Year’s Eve parties in Vegas and Miami, but only if he could bring Kim, leading him to decline the offers.

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

In the beginning of their relationship, Kanye wasn't a huge fan of appearing on the family reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but eventually gave in.

“He made it clear to her he doesn’t want to be on her show, but Kim gets upset so he caves in,” adds the source.

But is this affecting Kanye's career?

Sales for West’s upcoming show at Revel in Atlantic City are “not close to being sold out,” says one ticket broker. But the latest sign the public is turning against West was when a massive portion of the audience walked out during his performance at the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden last week and weren't fans of the kilt he was wearing.

“Literally half the audience got up to go to the bathroom and it was the talk of the men’s room,” one attendee told Confidenti@l’s Marianne Garvey. 

“He has been meeting with top-level music executives seeking advice,” says the source.

“He’s not happy with the direction things have been going.”

Uh-oh! What do we think? Is Kanye on the way out?

Meanwhile, the showbiz couples romance doesn't look like it'll be slowing down anytime soon and reports now state that Kim K will rake in a whopping £18 million from their TV wedding.

"Kim's marriage to Kris was sold for around £9 million to the E! network, but with Kanye involved, that figure could double. She could also make around £1 million selling her bridal shower pictures and bachelorette party," an insider told Heat magazine.
