News: Kanye West & Kim K's North West Rumors Go South
Sunday, Jun 30, 2013 8:29PM
Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are going to keep their baby under wraps a bit longer in light of recent reports claiming television was in the newborn's immediate future.
Despite the buzz and gossip, new reports claim North West will not be unveiled to the world through Ye's soon-to-be mother-in-law Kris Jenner's upcoming talk show.
Sources close to the Kardashian fam tell TMZ, Kim is planning a first look with N.W. in a photo shoot. She hasn't accepted an offer yet, but we're told at least one magazine has offered North of $2 mil. We're told the proceeds will go to charity. Interesting ... a baby reveal on Kris' new show could be a ratings bonanza, but it's not gonna happen. In fact ... we're told Kim is so averse to exploiting her baby -- she doesn't even plan to show North West on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" next season. We're guessing Kanye had something to do with that decision. (TMZ)
A few days ago, reports claimed baby West could get her first taste of the Hollywood spotlight thanks to Jenner.
Kris Jenner is coy when it comes to rumors that her new granddaughter North West will make her debut on the reality-television star's new daytime talk show. The show premieres July 15, and many are speculating the new bundle of joy will help her grandmother kick off the first episode -- she will be exactly one month old on that day. Jenner isn't giving any hints, though. Fans are "just going to have to tune in and find out," Jenner told USA Today with a laugh. "I'm not saying a word." (International Business Times)
Recently, G.O.O.D Music's Big Sean revealed a personal conversation he had with Kanye about becoming a father.
"No, but I've talked to Ye about North. I've not yet met North," Sean revealed in an interview. "I heard it was a little baby, too. People trying to talk sh*t about that name. I feel like if I met a pretty girl and came up to me like, 'Hi, my name is North.' I'd be like, 'Oh sh*t.' We've talked briefly and what I've said to him is, 'I remember when you and Kim were just flirting and sh*t and now you got a baby together and in love.' That's really tight to sit back and think about. He was like, 'I know man, right? We was talking about that sh*t in my kitchen.' I was like, 'I know, man. Now you got a baby. Life is crazy.' They're truly happy -- it's some real sh*t they got." ("Sway in the Morning")
New York rapper N.O.R.E. recently said the newborn will undoubtedly get connected to him through her nickname.
"I'm just stoked," he told us on Friday (June 21) over the phone after he completed his morning jog. "There's a lot of children named after Nas, there's people named after Pun, there's people named after Biggie, Jay-Z, so on and so forth, and I'm just honored that her nickname remotely sounds like my name."
