According to a report in Page Six, Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner is concerned that her daughter's husband is "damaging the Kardashian brand" and is pushing him to seek the help of a crisis management PR team.
"His Twitter rants are out of control, and Kris fears that he's taking the family down," said a Page Six source. "Kris wants Kanye to hire someone to handle all the noise and drama so he can focus on being an artist."
The "Life of Pablo" rapper and his team have reportedly been meeting with some of the best publicists in he business in recent months, but "nobody is brave enough to work with him," Page Six asserts.
"You couldn't pay us enough to represent Kanye," said one publicist who was reportedly approached by the rapper's team. "He's too much to handle."
On Feb. 17, Page Six published a leaked audio recording of Kanye's backstage meltdown at the "Saturday Night Live" studios in New York City on Feb. 13. He reportedly blew up shortly before the Melissa McCarthy-hosted episode went live because the lighting director ordered the crew to take up the flooring on his set.
In the recording, Kanye can be heard repeatedly yelling, "Don't f--- with me."
He's also made headlines in recent weeks for going on several Twitter rampages, renewing his feud with Taylor Swift and claiming to be $53 million in debt.
His wife may have his back when it comes to most things, but according to People magazine, Kim struggles with her husband's constant tweeting.
"What causes friction in the marriage … is Kanye's compulsive tweeting," a source told the magazine. "Kim can't stand it. She is all for self-promotion, but doesn't approve of Twitter drama."
Still, Kim "will do whatever to make this work," says another source.
"They're incredibly supportive of one another, not only publicly, but privately as well," the magazine quotes yet another source. "Kim has a unique understanding of him, probably in a deeper way than anybody else in the world. She's understanding of the way that he operates."
If only the controversial rapper could find a PR team that shares his wife's understanding!
