Kim Kardashian may want to wait before she walks down the aisle with fiancé Kanye West, or at least that is what her friends are reportedly saying. The pair got engaged in October, on Kardashian’s 33rd birthday, and now reports suggest the reality star is being controlled by her rap star beau.
Sources tell Life & Style magazine that everything from her elaborate proposal in San Francisco’s baseball stadium to her appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno has been scripted by West. “It was as if she’d been brainwashed about what to say,” an insider said of her Oct. 30 appearance on Leno’s late-night show. “She didn’t have a sparkle in her eye that she once had.”
A friend of hers went on to say, “Nothing about the engagement was Kim. It was completely not like her to be proposed to in the baseball stadium.”
In front of her family and friends, the 36-year-old West had a 50-piece orchestra play Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful,” before playing his own hit song “Knock Me Down,” which includes the lyrics, “I never thought I’d be in love like this/When I look at you my mind goes on a trip/Then you came in and knocked me on my face/Feels like I’m in a race, but I already won first place.”
After the performance, the words, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEEE!!!!” appeared on the scoreboard screen, and after Kardashian said yes, there were fireworks and her family came out of the dugouts to celebrate the moment with her.

“He calls the shots about the wedding, the house they’re constructing, everything down to what shoes she’s gonna wear to events,” the source continued. “Kim doesn’t think she’s being controlled. She’s ‘deciding’ to do whatever Kanye wants. She’s so in the Kanye bubble right now.”
Meanwhile, West has revealed that he is planning for the two to walk down the aisle next summer. At the end of October, while on radio show “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” in Los Angeles, he said about the wedding, “It’s going to be next summer. I only have two words in my mind as far as ideas for the wedding. That’s fighter jets.”
