Remember yesterday when the first photos of the Kimye family surfaced? You know, the ones where you could totally see how cute North West is if you had X-ray vision and could see through blankets? The ones where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were wearing matching fringe booties and smiling because they conveniently had a nanny there to carry their baby even though they both have functioning arms? Yeah, those. Well, to the surprise of approximately nobody, there are now reports that those photos weren’t just candid snapshots of a spontaneous moment but rather a staged photo op. But these claims aren’t just coming from any old anonymous source. They’re coming from an anonymous source who claims those claims come from Kanye West himself. Big difference there. Yes, according to Radar Online, Kanye had no idea the paparazzi were snapping pictures and is not happy about it.
West, who has had several violent recent encounters with photographers, went “absolutely ballistic that a paparrazzo took the pictures of the family outing to baby North’s appointment with her pediatrician. Kanye was absolutely unaware that the photographer was in the parking garage of the medical facility,” a source told Radar.
Kanye also apparently “believes that a member of the Kardashian clan tipped off the photographer.” Oh dear, how do I put this? Umm… duh! Has he met these people? He didn’t see the dollar signs that lit up over Kim’s pupil’s before they entered the parking garage? He didn’t hear Kris Jenner cackling to herself from where she was perched Spider-Man style on the ceiling?
Of course, this is all if we’re assuming that this report is real and Kanye actually didn’t know the paparazzi were there. I’m still not totally sure where I stand on that. On the one hand, how low-key were those photographers that they could snap that many pictures unseen and at what appears to be such close range? On the other hand, Kanye is kinda sorta smiling in the photos, and he’s not lunging at the camera in a fit of rage, as he’s so apt to do. So did he really not know or did he and Kim come to some sort of agreement that they could be photographed as long as the baby was covered? One thing’s for sure, though. If Kanye was so concerned about getting photographed he probably shouldn’t have started dating somebody named Kardashian. Star-crossed love is nice and all, but no.
