Despite their impending nuptials it appears the happy couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, could be having some issues with the A-listers of Hollywood. Despite their high-profile in the media, Kim Kardashian is having trouble breaking into Kanye West’s social circles among the Hollywood elite.
Reportedly, Kanye has been having trouble bringing his fiancée, also the mother of his daughter North, to the elite parties, clubs, and events in Hollywood. A source for Radar Online claimed West has to go so far as to beg people to invite Kim to events or meetings with the top elite of Hollywood, saying,
“Kanye is begging people to invite Kim to events or meetings with the cream of the crop in Hollywood, but so many people are refusing. He’s a serious star that people really respect, especially as a business man, but they want nothing to do with Kim.”
One such event was the Vanity fair Oscar party, which Kardashian wanted to attend but was not invited to. The problem is people do not welcome Kardashian at such events, as the source claimed, “Kim is just not welcome at the same places Kanye is.”
Even though Kim is having trouble breaking into Kanye’s social circles, this has not deterred him from helping to promote his fiancée and gushing over her. The two recently appeared together on last month’s cover of Anna Wintour’s VOGUE Magazine. Also in a recent collaboration with the rapper Future, the single I Won, West and Future both praise and gush about their respective ladies, Kim and Ciara. Kanye extols about Kim during the song with the lyrics: “Till one day I put an angel in your ultra sound, I want to dip that a** in gold…I made it over NBA, NFL players, so every time I score it’s like the Super Bowl.”
The anonymous Radar informant went on, “Kanye usually knows how to get what he wants.” The source continued: “Whether it is going directly to a studio head or the person in charge of an event, he has no fear. People are worried he’s going to start making big personal asks and calling in favors for Kim and they are dreading having to give into him. Kanye is powerful, even if people don’t want to deal with Kim or Kris [Jenner].”
Kim’s reputation in Hollywood is most likely not bolstered by her being paid to appear as a date for rich men at foreign parties, as of less than two months ago. Last February, She was reportedly paid $500,000 by the Austrian businessman, Richard Lugner, to appear as his date at the Vienna Annual Opera Ball. The night did not go well when Kardashian apparently stormed out after a comedian appeared in black face and dressed as Kanye. Considering Kardashian’s claim to fame was her appearance in a celebrity sex tape with the rapper Ray J, such incidents do not appear to provide her with the most sterling image among the Hollywood elite.
Regardless of how Kim’s fame was achieved, the reality television star and Kanye’s popularity does not appear to be waning anytime soon. Even if Kim Kardashian is having trouble breaking into Kanye West’s social circles, the two will likely be making big headlines and copious amounts of money together for the foreseeable future.
