Kanye West 'wants style star wife'


Kanye West was apparently hoping Kim Kardashian would become the "queen of fashionistas". The rapper and his reality TV star wife are constantly in the limelight, particularly with regards to Kim's impressive figure. She made the most of her curves recently when she appeared nude on the cover of Paper magazine, claiming she wanted to "break the internet". Towards the beginning of her career, the 34-year-old hit headlines when a sex tape she'd made with her ex-boyfriend Ray J was leaked. Following her raunchy Paper pictures it resurfaced; much to the annoyance of Kanye, apparently.

'Kanye thought the Paper shoot would take it to the next level, especially after [Kim] did Vogue in April'

"Kanye is furious the sex tape is gaining popularity again," a source divulged to British magazine Star. "He doesn't want people seeing it.

"Kanye thought the Paper shoot would take it to the next level, especially after [Kim] did Vogue in April. He had high hopes of Kim becoming the queen of fashionistas, but all this... is coming back to haunt her."

Earlier this year, Kim and Kanye appeared on the April cover of Vogue US. It seemed an unusual choice for editor Anna Wintour, who recently defended her decision by candidly stating nobody would talk about the glossy magazine if it only featured "tasteful" people.

This seemingly sly dig has apparently enraged Kanye, 37, even further.

"They're starting to feel like the whole thing backfired," the insider sighed. "When Anna Wintour says you're not tasteful, the whole showbiz world sits up and takes notice."
