Bruce Jenner caused quite the furore when he declared Kanye West was missing in action when it comes to Kim Kardashian's pregnancy. "I've only met him once," the Kardashian-Jenner family patriarch said, last week. "He's never… he's not around."
That's not the case, according to one of the pregnant reality star's closest confidantes who has leapt to the 35-year-old rapper's defense, declaring "Kanye is the man."
"He's actually always around, I have hung out with them together so many times, I couldn't even count all the times and in different countries… all those stories make me laugh," Jonathan Cheban told RadarOnline.com at the Viva Diva wines summer launch in New Rochelle, New York, on Wednesday night.
You'll remember: Cheban, the former public relations guru turned E! reality star, had a strained relationship with Kim's second husband, NBA star Kris Humphries. He even considered filing a lawsuit against Kris, 28, after the Brooklyn Nets power forward called him gay and hurled a homophobic slur at him during a heated argument on Kourtney and Kim Take New York.
Kanye couldn't be further from Kris, Cheban hinted.
"He's so smart and interesting and perfect for Kim," he told Radar.
Blasted Cheban: "I'm sick of the haters… Kim will have that body back in two month after having the baby. She'll be hot, but the haters will still be fat and ugly!"
