If Kim Kardashian’s mom and manager, Kris Jenner, has her way, Kardashian would not get married to boyfriend Kanye West anytime soon, a new report said.
Jenner believes that if Kardashian got married to West, and the marriage failed, their business empire would take a hit and the “momager” wants to prevent it at any cost.
“Kris is encouraging the couple to NOT get married. After Kim’s last, 72-day, marriage, Kris feels like the Kardashian brand does not need another marriage disaster on its hands,” a source told Naughty But Nice Rob, an entertainment news website.
“She is telling them to take their time, to really think about it. A third divorce for Kim, is not something Kris wants for her daughter or her family business,” the source added.
Kardashian’s first marriage to music producer, Damon Thomas, lasted just four years before they called it quits in 2004. The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star’s second marriage to Kris Humphries, too, was short lived, as it ended just 72 days after they walked down the aisle.
The source added that Jenner is currently trying to persuade Kardashian to follow in the footsteps of celebrity couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who according to Jenner have shown that marriage is not necessary to find happiness.
“Kim adores Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, which is why her mom is using them as an example of how you can be a solid, committed couple, without having to say ‘I do.’ Kris originally used Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell as an example of a great couple that never got married, but Kim had no idea who these two were!” the source said.
This news comes amidst reports that West has already proposed marriage to Kardashian, and the duo is set to tie the knot in Egypt, as Kardashian wants an Egyptian-themed wedding.
“Kim thinks she's the spitting image of Egyptian goddess Isis, so she has been talking about doing an Egyptian-themed wedding, at the pyramids,” a source close to the Kardashians told OK magazine. ''She says Kanye digs the idea too. It will cost millions to fly everyone to Egypt, but money is no object.''
