Kim Kardashian’s new relationship with Kanye West now has the stamp of approval from her mom-ager Kris Jenner.
“Kris is thrilled about Kim’s new romance with Kanye,” a source close to the Kardashian family tells RadarOnline. “She loves that they’re together and thinks Kanye is a huge step up for Kim after her marriage to Kris Humphries.”
Kim’s mom has been the driving force behind her career, from encouraging her to pose nude in Playboy Magazine to managing her numerous endorsements, and this new romance is just what Kris was hoping for her daughter.
“Dating Kanye puts Kim in a whole new stratosphere," the source says. "Kris was just a basketball player making a few million dollars a year, but Kanye is a world-wide multi-millionaire superstar. His money and fame are all going to benefit Kim now and she’s going to have all the perks of being his girlfriend, and her mom thinks this is going to be great for her own career.”
Kris manages all of her daughters' careers, but Kim is the most successful, and the source says she sees a golden egg with the Kanye relationship.
“Kris Jenner is so happy that her daughter is dating Kanye, and she wants to make sure she maximizes all the attention Kim is going to get, as well as the financial opportunities this is going to open up for her now.”
