After the rapper’s latest controversial statements and weeks of frenzied Twitter activity, Kris and the rest of the family are reportedly worried about the hip hop star damaging the Kardashian brand.
‘They’re freaking out. They can try to dispute it, but it’s true,’ a source told People.
‘They’re freaking out’: Kanye West ‘doesn’t listen’ to Kris Jenner or wife Kim Kardashian, a new report suggests, after weeks of unpredictable behavior from the rapper
‘Kris is used to being able to control her girls and their brand, and this is something that she’s not used to. She can’t control it, and she so badly wants to be able to,’
The insider added that while Kris’ daughters listen to her and trust her advice, Kanye does not.
‘Kanye does not have a good relationship with her, contrary to what she may say,
‘She is the mama bear trying to protect her daughters and the brand that she has worked so tirelessly to build over the last however many years. This hurts their brand.’
The source explained that telling Kanye not to do something, such as tweeting, just ‘fuels him to tweet more’.
‘He thinks that he can do a better job managing his brand and Kim’s brand.’ they added.
‘Kris can’t manage Kanye. She wants to and she’s trying to, but she can’t. No one can. That’s why Kim is trying in her way to add humor to a situation that’s really sad.’
In a pre-taped interview with Ellen DeGeneres which airs Friday, Kris addressed the Kanye issue.
‘Kris can’t manage Kanye. She wants to and she’s trying to, but she can’t. No one can’ the source told People. The 40-year-old rapper is pictured out earlier this week in LA
‘You know, Kanye has a lot of love for all of you, all of his fans, and everybody who’s been there to support him forever,
‘And, I know that he will explain himself in his own way,’ she continued.
‘And, I think that anything he does – and I just think this is important to say is – he always does things with really good intentions. So, I’m going to let him explain himself when the time is ready and … I just keep rolling on. Trying to keep up …’
Among Kanye’s controversial statements in recent weeks was his comment that ‘slavery was a choice’ when he appeared on TMZ last week.
He also, amid his epic tweeting session last month, declared his support for President Trump and donned the red Make America Great Again cap for photos he posted to Twitter.

On Thursday the rapper left Los Angeles and jetted to Wyoming to finish up the five albums he is working on.
Sources for TMZ claim that the Famous hitmaker is now at his secluded home in the cowboy state and that he will be there for at least several weeks.
The Faded hitmaker has struggled with his mental health in recent years and suffered a breakdown in the fall of 2016 which he recently attributed to the stress of Kim’s Paris robbery among other factors.
He told radio presenter Charlamagne Tha God: ‘Fear, stress, control, being controlled, manipulation like being a pawn in the chess piece of life. Stressing things that like create validation that I didn’t need to worry about as much and just the concept of competition and being in competition with so many elements at one time.’
