Given how anti-spotlight Kanye West is when it comes to his own career and lifestyle, it should come as no surprise that he is said to be trying to convince his camera-friendly babymama Kim Kardashian to agree to body doubles for their family trio, including his newborn daughter North.
It seems Kanye West may have learned a duplicitous thing or two from Kris Jenner.
A week after Jenner fooled the world with a fake photo of North West, a new report alleges that West wants to take this idea a step further:
Body doubles all around!
“It may seem slightly paranoid, but he’s deadly serious about it,” a source tells Now Magazine. “Kanye’s terrified they could be the target of a kidnap attempt – or worse. There are a lot of crazy people out there and he keeps saying he’ll do whatever it takes to keep his family safe.”
To that end, the artist is pushing Kim Kardashian to agree to the use of body doubles for all three members of this popular famous.
When the parents and their mysterious child do eventually leave their mansion, “the plan is for them to go out in separate vehicles to throw anyone planning to follow them off the scent,” according to this same insider, who adds of West:
“He’s always been a worrier. But now he’s a father, he says he isn’t prepared to take any chances.”
As a parent, and especially a celebrity parent, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing whatever is necessary to keep your child safe…..but this seems a little extreme.
Might be time for big brother Hov to stage an intervention with Yeezy and get him enrolled in celebrity 101 classes or something since the Carters seem to have the balance between maintaining celebrity status but still providing a normal life for their child under control.
