From the National Enquirer:
Kanye West is pleading with GF Kim Kardashian’s mom Kris Jenner to stop having plastic surgery because he’s afraid she’ll end up dead like his own mother. The rap star’s mom Donda West tragically died at the age of 58 in November 2007 – one day after getting a tummy tuck, breast reduction and liposuction.
“That loss crushed Kanye,” revealed a close source. She wasn’t just his mom but his manager as well – just like Kris is Kim’s manager. The parallels are uncanny. Kanye’s gotten very close to Kris. She’s become like a second mom to him, and he couldn’t bear losing another person in his life to plastic surgery. Kanye told Kris, ‘I don’t want to lose ya, baby!’”
Friends and family of the Kardashians’ 56-year-old “momager” fear that she will go overboard with her nip-and-tuck operations. Just before her daughter Kim’s short-lived Aug. 20 marriage to Kris Humphries, her mom announced: “I need a little freshening up.” And as cameras rolled, she headed off to see a plastic surgeon. Clearly nervous before the procedure, she admitted: “I don’t want to die.”
But Kris could have died from embarrassment when a new trailer for the upcoming season of the E! reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” showed her with her top lip enormously swollen in a “trout pout.”
“It appeared that the lip was temporarily disfigured from collagen injections,” said the source. “She looked positively freakish, and (her children) Kim and Rob were alarmed.”
Everyone is worried that her plastic surgery kick “will veer dangerously out of control,” confided the source. But no one is more worried than Kanye, 34, who feels increasingly like a part of the Kardashian family. After only a few months of romancing Kim, he’s already talking marriage with her.
The rapper was previously engaged to Alexis Phifer in August 2006. But their joyous plans collapsed after the shocking, unexpected death of Kanye’s mom – and it haunts him.
This story is believable, and pretty sad. Kanye was extremely upset over his mother’s death, naturally, and it’s obvious that he and Kim have gotten super close, so it would make sense that he got closer to the whole family. But is it weird that I think it’s kind of sweet that Kanye is concerned about Kris Jenner?
Ooh, by the way, that whole thing about Kris Jenner’s lip. We didn’t cover that story, but in case you missed it elsewhere, last week a promo for the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians began airing that showed showed Kris with a big ol’ fat lip. The promo didn’t really explain what had happened, but collagen seems like a likely suspect. Here’s an amusing picture:
So, in conclusion, I feel bad for Kanye, but his relationship with Kim just became slightly endearing, and Kris Jenner is still ridiculous.
