Has Kanye Been Adopted Into Kardashian Fold?
July 12, 2012
Kim Kardashian sparked a media frenzy when she began dating Kanye West and the two still manage to grab headlines wherever they go. But is the controversial rapper being accepted by the whole Kardashian clan?
The Insider's Kevin Frazier spoke with family patriarch Bruce Jenner and Khloe's husband Lamar Odom Wednesday on the red carpet of the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles about how Kanye is adapting to the Kardashian publicity machine. "He has no idea," Bruce mused about Kanye's ever-blossoming relationship with Kim. Lamar then adds: "He needs more time."
As for how Kim is doing in her new relationship, Bruce, said, "I guess she's doing well. I really haven't talked to her much. Since the whole Kanye thing, we haven't seen much of her." He did say that things appear to be going well so far. "But she's happy, and all we want for Kim is to be happy."
Also stopping by to chat with Kevin was L.A. Dodger Matt Kemp, who brought his mother, Judy Henderson, as his date to the sports awards show. Kemp dated R&B star Rihanna for about a year in 2010 and his mom was asked about that relationship being played out in the tabloids and gossip blogs.
"It was extremely hard...very hard," Judy said, when asked about seeing photos of her son plastered on the tabloids. "But I gave him my opinion. I was truthful." When asked how his mother advised him during that time, Matt said, "I listened. Of course I've gotta listen to what she says. And I gotta do what she says, so she's the boss."
