Move over Kim, Kanye West is finally becoming a major star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians — and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned momager Kris Jenner hopes the new role will save the sinking show!
“Kanye is really in creative control of content for season 16 and that is why viewers saw such a different level of production value in the premiere episode,” a source close to the 63-year-old matriarch told Radar.
“Kris has decided to let him take the reign a bit, and she is just praying that his vision boosts ratings! He is telling her that things need to change, and she is putting her own vision aside for a minute to let him hop in.”
As fans know, the 41-year-old rapper starred alongside wife Kim Kardashian in their confessional interview on the season premiere.
After announcing that they were having a fourth child to her family, the superstar couple returned to Kanye’s hometown of Chicago to show daughter North West his childhood home and settle beef that Kanye had with fellow rapper Rhymefest.
In addition, the father of three also showed viewers an Regal Theater, which he is in the process of renovating.
“He is using the show as a platform for his projects,” the source told Radar.
“Khloe and Kourtney think Kanye is a genius, and if he can help them boost ratings for the show, then they are all about it,” the insider said.
“They are all on edge right now and are really hoping that Kanye’s vision for the show leads to a spike in ratings for the premiere, as well as the season.”
