He was heavily criticised for making an appearance on his girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
And it seems that Kanye West has taken the backlash on board.
It has been reported that the father of Kim’s unborn child has refused to appear in anymore episodes of the family’s popular programme in fear that it will tarnish his image.
Sources have told Radaronline.com that the rapper’s management have told him that it makes the Gold Digger star ‘look cheap’.
‘Kanye has made it perfectly clear to Kim that he doesn’t want to appear at all on Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ an insider told Radaronline.com.
‘He has made several brief appearances on the Kardashian reality shows, but wants nothing to do with future filming.
‘Kanye’s team believes it’s bad for his image and brand to appear on a reality show because it makes him look cheap.
‘And, Kim isn’t pushing the issue at all as she knows Kanye won’t bend on it.’
Kim reportedly begged her former boyfriend, NFL football player Reggie Bush, to feature on her show while they were dating, but has apparently backed off when it comes to Kanye in fear that it could cause problems in their relationship.
‘It’s such a departure for Kim because she constantly nagged Reggie Bush when they were dating for him to come on the show. He just refused, and it was one of the reasons why they broke up,’ the sourced added.
‘Kim will probably be able to talk Kanye into doing several cameos, but that will be it.’
The news comes as Kim recently told DuJour magazine that Kanye had taught her ‘a lot about privacy’.
‘I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships,’ Kim added. ‘I’m realising everyone doesn’t need to know everything. I’m shifting my priorities.’
The interview prompted speculation that the reality queen might make a departure from her reality show and would be leaving the ‘Kardashian bubble’.
However, Kim quickly insisted this week that she would not be leaving her Keeping Up With The Kardashians show after season nine.
Addressing rumours that she would be giving up the series, Kim admitted she didn’t know where life would take her, but said she is ‘staying on through at least season 10’ on her blog on Wednesday.
She wrote: ‘As everyone knows, we are extremely proud of the show and all of us are staying on through at least season 10. The show remains to be my number 1 priority and it’s a big part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it.
‘It has given me such a rare opportunity to share more of my life with all of you and has brought my family closer to each other. I’m looking forward to the new season and beyond.’
She added: ‘The fact is that I have many goals that I still need to reach and accomplish and I (like so many of you) don’t know where my life will be in the next couple of years, but I’m looking forward to continuing this journey.’
The popular E! show is currently airing its seventh season.
It had been suggested that Kim may want to leave the show following the birth of her first child with Kanye, after claiming her baby will not appear on television.
‘I think there’s always an evolution of, you know, what you want to do in life,’ Kim told DuJour Magazine. ‘It’s all about finding things that really excite you and motivate you and spark you all over again.
‘I’m realising that no matter what, if you go into something with all these expectations and plans, once you’re actually living it, it could be completely different.’
