(BlackMediaScoop) Call it the Kim Kardashian Kurse. About to be struck down? Kanye West. West’s majorly successful career as a rapper survived interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs and insulting a sitting President during a Hurricane Katrina telethon.
But a source says West’s popularity is waning and he has become tainted, with too many appearances on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” pictures in the celebrity weeklies and a girlfriend unwelcome in the world of high fashion. Once gracing the pages of VMAN and GQ, his face is now splattered all over whatever Kardashian is promoting.
“His personal life is overpowering his music,” an industry source says. “Every time he plays, people are wondering if Kim is going to be there. It’s not a good thing for him, especially if he wants to be taken seriously.” Kardashian is also affecting West’s income. The rapper was offered several opportunities to host New Year’s Eve parties in Vegas and Miami — but only if he would bring Kardashian. West declined the offers.
